External study materials

MySwedish is evolving, it is a living project that grows and becomes better every day. New links are added regularly whenever I come across something interesting. You should visit this page from time to time. Feel free to write me a message if you have something interesting online. I will share it with the others.

Useful links

MySwedish is great, no doubt about it. But it is not an all-in-one learning tool and you should combine it with other sources. And there are dozens of great things out there on the internet.

Online translation

First of all, do not use Google translator. Forget about it. I know that it is becoming better and better but still it is a far cry from being perfect.

ord.se

Would you need to translate anything from English to Swedish, use ord.se. Not only is there the exact translation of the word you are looking for, but also phrasal examples using this word.

wordreference.com

Wordreference a very nice online tool where you can find not only translations but also language forums and there is one on Nordic languages as well.

synonymer.se

Once you become better at Swedish you will probably want to find synonyms to the words you already know in Swedish. You can find them on synonymer.se.

rimlexikon.com

I can make the case that you need to find a rhym to a certain word in Swedish and rimlexikon.com can help you out.

Web/mobile applications

There are many nice online tools for studying foreign languages and many of them are for free and in a premium quality.

Duolingo

I bet you have heard about Duolingo. It is an awesome tool and makes studying easy and enjoyable. I would highly recommend this app for anybody who studies foreign languages. And it is for free as well.

Memrise

Another good web app, which one can use while studying foreign languages, is memrise.com. This one is not bad but one should be careful with their translations. I would recommend to double-check them elsewhere. Anyhow, it is a valuable source of information for you.

Digitalaspåret

A very good page where one can find various study materials. You can choose your level and then listen, read and study new vocabulary here. You can find them on digitalasparet.se.

Extend your vocabulary

There are several web sites providing new vocabulary on a daily basis. Some of them send you new words every day. Could it even be more comfortable?

dailyswedish.com

Dailyswedish.com Can help you set your daily studying routine. Each day, five new Swedish words appear on this web and once you think you know these words well you can check your memory and take a quiz.

transparent.com

Trasnparent.com is an online learning platform but the service is paid. However, they provide users with a nice service Word of the day. You can subscribe and get new word directly to your inbox every day.
