Christmas Break will be full of Swedish!

My German classes in Vienna ended last week and I am completely free for the next few weeks. I will be spending most of my time studying for my German exam for university (Österreichisches Sprachdiplom Deutsch) which is in January but I will also be treating myself to some quality time familiarizing myself with Swedish. It will be my treat after “real” studying. 🙂
Right now I am listening to the Swedish band Kent. I first heard them awhile ago on Guitar Hero and started listening to them and they are part of the reason I am interested in Swedish. Right now I am listening to some songs while reading along with the lyrics online to get a feel for the sounds of the language. In between I am also working on the “Who is she?” series of lessons on LingQ.

  1. Sounds good, Jessica! Have you tried importing the song lyrics into LingQ so you can create LingQs for the words you don’t know.

  2. Good band! Kinda the opposite for me, I am learning Swedish because my boyfriend is Swedish, lol, and I happen to come across Kent early on while looking up Swedish music 😀 I did a little happy dance when I saw Vinternoll on Guitar Hero, hehe. Yea, I get a overly excited by all things Swedish. Vi ses (see you)!

  3. Mark – No I haven’t tried that yet, I didn’t know you could do that but I definitely will tomorrow, thanks!Kala – Do you know any other good Swedish music? Do you have any tips for learning Swedish? 🙂

  4. Hi Jessica, any update on that Swedish study over the Christmas break? Or, were there too many holiday distractions, as was the case with my language studies for the last few weeks? 😉
