About

Hej! Jag heter Jade, jag kommer från Storbritannien och jag lär mig svenska.

Up until a few years ago, I never thought I’d learn a second language. Then, against all expectations, I found myself in Sweden.

I originally started this blog to track my progress and keep myself motivated as I tried to teach myself Swedish. I don’t really stick to the rules though, and nowadays you’ll find a bit of everything as I try to make sense of my life among köttbullarna.

Vi ses! 🙂

  1. I can sort of offer some help too! 🙂 I’m Italian, but I live in the UK and I’m another lover of all things Swedish. I’ve started learning Swedish in 2010, on an on&off basis. In the past 10 months I’ve managed to reach an intermediate level. The trick is to work a little every day, maybe just even one little sentence, have a look at news online in Swedish. A little bit. The first months will be the hardest, I know, but don’t give up! Hang in there!! 😀

    • Thank you for the lovely comment! 🙂 I am struggling quite a bit at the moment, but hopefully I’ll start to get the hang of things soon enough. I’ve been learning for just under a year.

      • Varsågod! A few months after I decided to teach myself Swedish (long story) I looked for Swedish clubs in my area and found one not too far from where I live. The are quite a lot of Swedes living in the UK; then joining a local group might help you practice a bit. Most groups organise monthly events and depending on members’ needs, also classes at various levels. It might be worth checking of there is any group in your area. I’ve just come back from our monthly fika, for instance 😉

  2. Hi, saw your comment on another blog about learning Swedish. I’m giving it a go too-but early days yet 🙂 Best of luck.
