Help Learning Swedish?!

Hi again. How can I remember and learn swedish better? Right now I have a notebook where I keep the words and pronunciations in, and I usually practice saying it when I learn a new word, but I'm worried that I will forget some of the words. (For example, this has happened to me before, but I will click strengthen food, for example, and I will start and some of the words seem like I have never seen them before.) Do you have any suggestions for learning swedish and keeping the words fresh in my head? Tack :)

Keep up with the notebook, and maybe try flashcards or a flashcard app/website. Best of luck to you!

Sometimes I use http://www.memrise.com (memrise) for french, but you could create a https://quizlet.com (quizlet) set and study that to remember words.

I write (by hand) any sentences I have trouble with on flashcards. I review my cards daily and it's by far the most effective way to learn words and structures. Now that I'm mainly working with my French tree I do every lesson twice (or more, if I feel I need it) and I finish one skill per day. Every day I strengthen two previous skills, so I strengthen every skill twice. If I feel I have problems with a skill I'm strengthening I strengthen it two or even three times that day.

If you try this method, you need to adapt it to your level. I have learned French in school for ten years and then forgot it almost completely. Now that I'm relearning it I can advance faster than if I was just starting it. When I started working with the tree I did two skills per day and strengthened four, I swiched it when it became too difficult for me. If I feel I need to adjust my method again before I finish the tree, then I will.

You can only learn so many words per day, and if you are not used to learning languages, you'll need to learn to learn languages at the same time. That can be tiring as well. So don't rush it, you'll just end up working more later if you do.

Try writing down / memorizing a sentence for each word. That way the words will be more memorable, and you'll be practicing grammar, too.

I have Been practicing using Swedish when texting, and I got a Swedish keyboard for my computer. I use it to read articles and translate them back to English. Good luck!

My best way is if you can recall the word a couple of times without hovering over for a translation, then you'll most likely remember it. Another great way is to make your own sentence that relates to something happening right now. For example, in German the word "knapp" sticks with me because one time I wanted a snack, but couldn't find one so I thought "Essen ist knapp" (food is scarce), and now I can remember it without even thinking.
