Hej alla! I am Super-Svensk, and I am the creator of the Swedish Word of the Week page here on Duolingo. Every Monday, I post a new Swedish Word of the Week so that you can learn some fun and unusual vocabulary. This archive is a list of all previous words. If you ever want to review old words, you can come here to see a full list. To check out even older words, look at the 2016 Swedish Word of the Week Archive or the 2015 Swedish Word of the Week Archive
