There's a new web course in Swedish created by the Swedish Institute. If anyone would like to try it out, it's for free but you have to sign up in order to start. Link here: https://svenskaspraket.si.se/for-studerande/kurser-stipendier-praktik/webbkurs-i-svenska/

I also recently found this page with a list of Swedish learning resources that Swedish municipalities and regional authorities recommend: http://skl.se/integrationsocialomsorg/asylochflyktingmottagandeintegration/idebankforintegrationsarbetet/samverkanmedcivilasamhallet/arkivsamverkanmedcivilasamhallet/lanksamlingwebbstudierisvenskaochnyheterpalattsvenska.8151.html

And while I'm at it I'll just add a link to a discussion I posted about another link list: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/12967607

If anyone finds any real gems, please let others know in this topic!

PS I haven't tried any of them out so I have no idea if they're any good.

I remember trying that Swedish Institute course before I tried duolingo (and an evening class) - it really throws you in the deep end. I think what put me off that one was how they tried to get you to memorise: all the letters of the alphabet, all the numbers, all the ordinal numbers, how to tell time, the colours, the days of the week, the months, all in one sitting - before you've even learned how to say hello . Might be worth a try for other people, but that was the issue I had with it.

And looking at it now I realise that you don't actually have to do everything within each module in the order it's listed, even though they tell you to (i.e. you can do "Hej! Hej då!" before you do "A B C 1 2 3" and so on) so that might be worth trying too if anyone else gets put off with it like I did.

Indeed, it was a bit strange when I tried it, and I felt more comfortable doing it after already completing most of the Duolingo tree because it felt more bookish and technical, covering things like Swedish syllable stresses and short and long vowels (which Duolingo seems to teach implicitly but will always be a bit lacking in, given the way Duolingo is structured).

It's got some gems in there, though. I was super challenged by the part of the course where the audio recording spells names out and you have to write down what you hear.

The app fabulo is a nice app to start learning some words. You can select between different categories of words to start your learning. No specific sequence required like in duolingo. Do not start with "all words" because you will make little progress. :-)

Thanks very much! I appreciate receiving links to other sites - I've just joined the first one (Swedish Institute) - It looks great.
