Other resources to learn Swedish alongside Duolingo?
I have to learn Swedish for my fiance (hes Swedish) and while Duolingo helps, I am still struggling with speaking and other stuff. Any other Swedish sites to listen to Swedish speakers or just for anything really! I prefer free sites but honestly anything helps :)
to train vocabulary.
https://www.clozemaster.com to be exposed to a lot of sentences.
Slow news in easy Swedish.
(Turn on Swedish subtexts in the lower right corner.)
A funny way to check your vocabulary (and writing skills) is babadum:
There are also other games, but it does not help with grammar anyway...
Another (maybe lighter) source for news in easy Swedish is Radio Sweden på lätt svenska: https://sverigesradio.se/radioswedenpalattsvenska
Remember to practice every day! But not necessarily with Duo (Yes, I mean: you can loose your "streak" and be happier :-)
One more comment. On Duolingo you do not need to reach level 5 for each skill before moving to the next one. I personally let all lessons to level 1 and go fast forward, because I use also a book to learn Swedish (from Italian) with audio tracks for dialogues, and repeating again and again the same exercises sounds like loosing time to me.
for reading: http://8sidor.se https://interlinearbooks.com/literature/swedish/short-texts/ personally i use this site to translate texts from english to swedish, but you can find something similar if you aren't learning the language from english: https://englishlearning.webgarden.es/menu/1st-and-2nd-eso-year/easy-reading-texts tests: http://www.goethe-verlag.com/tests/WE/WE.HTM music: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/10621530 also tv shows are a great way to learn, my favourites are: Bron, Jordskott, Äkta Människor, Spring tide movies as well, i haven't seen many, but you are probably familiar with "The girl with the dragon tattoo", that's originally a swedish trilogy so if you are interested in that genre, you can watch or read it. svt: https://www.svtplay.se has a lot of cartoons, tv shows and movies tv4: https://www.tv4play.se/ and also youtube :D
Why not simply have conversations with your fiance? The best source available.
