Swedish course: looking for companions (ppl to follow)

Hej!

I've just started my course in Swedish. This year, in August, I'm going there to Uni so I want to prepare myself little bit...hope it will help me become more "Swedish":) Who knows what future will bring...:) Maybe I will live my scandi dream?:) I'd be grateful if I could find any nice mates who are learning swedish and are very commited to this. Seeing other people mastering the language every day will be very motivating for me!

Tack så mycket! And good luck to all of you guys and girls!

Hej och välkommen! I've been learning Swedish (albeit slowly!) for about two years now - my boyfriend lives in Sweden and I'd like to join him there some day. You're more than welcome to follow me :)

Hej everybody! I'm studying Swedish and started with a free on-line course called learningswedish.se It's especially good for folks planning to attend university. I also benefit from listening to sverigesradio.se and svt.se

Hallå! I've just started learning Swedish for the same reason (although I'll be going the following - second - year (hopefully))! I'm hoping to master it by then too, so I'd be happy to join you!

I only saw it today in another one of these posts! I'd already started my own list but it's good as a second reference if nothing else! Varsågod

Hi Piotrek, I just started learning Swedish about a month ago, for the same reason as you! I will also be going to Sweden in August to study there :) Which city will you be going to? It would be nice indeed to have some people who motivate each other every day!

University of Jönköping, but I will learn on campus in Eksjö, small town in Småland. How about you?

Hi- I'm in the US and at the moment I have no plans to be in Sweden. Early last year I sensed that my thinking was 'boxed in' by language and decided that connecting with a different culture might help. Here are some details. Beginning in July I started with learningswedish.se and it was a fortunate choice. After completing that course I started with Duolingo. By October I had reached a benchmark of sorts because I could read (with occasional help from a lexicon) and enjoy stories in the Swedish edition of Reader's Digest. The stories are well crafted and the grammar is perfect. To gain a better sense of pronunciation I started listening to sverigesradio.se and watching programs on svt.se None of this costs anything except for the investment in time. An unexpected benefit is that all the keyboard time helped improve my typing speed and accuracy :-) While I can now pretty much follow a discussion in Swedish I'm not yet comfortable engaging someone in a conversation. -Ken

Ah nice, that was actually my third choice. But I will go to Lund, it the south of Sweden, near malmö. My plan is to be able to hold a conversation in Swedish (B1?) before I go there, and then take some intermediate or advanced course at the university! So I am actually aiming to finish Duolingo at the 1st of may, although I am not sure if will make it :P How about you?
