SWEDISH WORD OF THE WEEK ARCHIVE (2018)

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 in the Swedish forum so that you can learn some cool new words, along with some Swedish culture on the way! I have created this archive as a resource to let you keep track of all the words I have posted. This list will be updated with the latest word every week along with my forum posts. If you want to review even older words, check out the 2017 Swedish Word of the Week Archive, the 2016 Swedish Word of the Week Archive, or the 2015 Swedish Word of the Week Archive! Enjoy!
