Want to learn Swedish online?

Is this you?

“I want to learn Swedish online, or maybe do online courses…”
“I haven’t found any resources that give me a real foundation on how to actually put sentences together, because there’s so much out there and I feel overwhelmed…”
“I’d like to learn Swedish with a Swedish teacher, but I don’t want to sit in a group among other learners…”

Or maybe this is you?

“I want to learn Swedish but I don’t want to (or can’t) travel to a particular place at a particular time, so I keep putting it off…”
“I’m self-conscious and feel embarrassed when trying to speak Swedish, and as a result I don’t get enough practice; I would like help with pronunciation and confidence when speaking…”
Swedish grammar is confusing to me, and I don’t even know what an adverb or a preposition is, and therefore I feel like I can’t learn it and don’t know where to start…”

How to learn Swedish online

You can learn Swedish, no matter your age and no matter where you live. Many believe it’s impossible to learn Swedish as an adult, or that you can’t learn unless you live in Sweden. It’s not true. 

Technology = learn Swedish online

Firstly, with the help of technology you can learn Swedish online from anywhere in the world. Secondly, it’s never too late to learn a new language. One of our students only started learning Swedish in her 50’s and she’s now at the age of 60 publishing books in Swedish!

Swedish Made Easy has helped many hundreds of students over more than 15 years. What you need is guidance, tools and support, and some help navigating the learner journey.

Student reviews

What people say?

I needed to learn Swedish to speak with my in-laws

I have been learning Swedish online with Anneli for over one year now, averaging a couple of hours each week. Being married to a Swede and spending regular vacations in Sweden it was always important to me to be able to converse in Swedish with the in-laws, friends and locals in Sweden, and now I have the confidence to at least attempt to do so (and even sing the occasional “snapsvisa”!).

Gives me nuances of Swedish culture

Outside the textbooks and written exercises, the lessons with Anneli are a great opportunity to explore the nuances of Swedish culture and language, and Anneli regularly introduces materials that will help with my learning and maintain my interest. Being based in Asia, the timing of the lessons work well as I can generally choose lesson times after working hours.

I began feeling competent

Swedish lessons with Daniel have propelled me at a pace much faster than I had expected. I had been taking lessons in person with a local teacher, but it wasn’t until I switched to sessions with Daniel that I began feeling competent and seeing progress. He is such an excellent balance of challenging and patient, and always encouraging. For someone like me starting from the beginning, he is the best choice.

He guides me through the content

Our lessons are a mix of homework review, textbook lessons, reading articles in Swedish and going through worksheets he’s made himself. He guides me through the content, but also listens to the areas I want to focus on and factors them in to the curriculum. After 30+ hours of lessons, I couldn’t be happier to have him as a teacher!
