I always recommend this book to all students A2 and beyond.

Swedish idioms and sayings

This fun book has some of the most common proverbs, set phrases, comparisons, word pairs and even phrasal verbs where the meaning can be difficult to deduce. 

Professional Swedish at work

Learn how to use Swedish confidently at work.

Suitable for level B1 and above. Includes access to online resources and exercises. 

We mainly work with the book series Rivstart, the grammar book Form i fokus and Teach Yourself Complete Swedish.

If you are a beginner and you study with a teacher (like us, for example), use Rivstart and Form i Fokus.

If you are a beginner and you want to study on your own, use Teach Yourself Complete Swedish (read more about the book here!).

If you are starting lessons with us, please purchase the Rivstart/Form i fokus books appropriate for your level, along with Teach Yourself Swedish. If you are unsure of your level, do this test, and/or contact us to discuss your level.

    1. Rivstart A1A2 if you are studying with a teacher. Teach Yourself Complete Swedish if you are studying on your own (as it is written in English).

  1. Hey there! I currently have Teach Yourself – Complete Swedish. I just wanted to say that this is an amazing book, one of the few language books that I literally adore. However, I am currently looking for Enjoy Swedish – is this not available anymore? I cannot seem to find it anywhere and I would like to step up with my Swedish. Tack så mycket!

    1. Hello! Thank you very much for your message. Lovely to hear you’re enjoying Complete Swedish. I’m afraid Enjoy Swedish has not been written yet… So earliest that will be available is probably late 2021 or 2022. Sorry, this was probably not what you wanted to hear. 🙁 On a positive note, we’ll be opening up several of our online courses this spring, so keep an eye out for them. And also, if you haven’t already, come and join our Facebook study group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/learnswedishwithswedishmadeeasy/ Best wishes – Anneli

      1. I wondered this as well because there’s a photo of Enjoy Swedish on the back of Complete Swedish! I thought it was already out. Thanks.

    1. Hej! That’s difficult to say as I don’t know what exact level you’re at. I might recommend having a look at Rivstart B1B2 first and see how that feels. Also, if you’ve only used Complete Swedish on your own, you will need conversation/speaking practice with a teacher (or a friendly Swede) as well as writing practice with feedback.
