I only wish this sort of course was available in all my languages I am learning. I have never come across a course like this before. This is a first for me and the course is fun, with Stefan and Anneli guiding you through the sounds of the letters and how to make them. It is also quite amusing for anyone listening to you while you do it!
This course cultivates a genuine interest in how we, as humans, use the anatomy of our vocal tract to generate sound. It then goes on to connect this newfound anatomical knowledge to the generation of legit Swedish pronunciation. Approximately 15 years of constant struggle have generated, for me, a decent facsimile of Swedish pronunciation. All I can say is that I wish I would have had access to this course a decade and a half ago! My confidence in speaking Swedish gone up dramatically (my wife is SHOCKED!!!). The brainpower that was formally used in worrying about being understood has now been freed up to start mastering prosody, as well as my reading and writing abilities. The difference is palpable. THANK YOU for creating this tool for myself and the others that are doggedly pursuing the lofty goal of learning to speak Swedish!
I really like it! The Tongue, Lip and Larynx gym videos brought my attention to how the sounds were made and the gym very much helped in learning how to use everything in my mouth to pronounce the different letters, letter combinations and words.
I have been studying Swedish for many years in many ways, but this is the first course that has taught me how my pronunciation is directly related to anatomy in a way that I can remember it and then practice it. The use of models and videos of the larynx and vocal tract make it easy to visualize what is going on inside the mouth and throat when speaking. The clear explanations about the Swedish vowel groups help describe the relationships of the vowels to one another and also give a good idea of the full vowel space that we are manipulating when we speak, again in a way that makes it easy to put the exercises into practice when speaking. This course has helped my confidence in Swedish pronunciation which makes it easier to seek out opportunities to speak which is really the only way to truly improve.

Learning Swedish is fun, but it can also be frustrating, especially when you haven’t dedicated enough time to pronunciation training.

Here are some common difficulties Swedish learners might experience:


Without proper pronunciation, you risk being misunderstood. Imagine asking for a “glas” (glass) and getting a “glass” (ice cream) instead. Such miscommunications can lead to frustration.

Loss of Confidence

Poor pronunciation can lead to a lack of confidence. You may hesitate to speak, fearing ridicule or embarrassment. This lack of confidence will hinder your progress.

Difficulty in Listening

We have 29 letters in the alphabet, but we have 18 vowel sounds and 25 consonant sounds. In other words, spoken Swedish is different compared to written Swedish. If you can’t pronounce words correctly, you may struggle to understand other Swedish speakers. This can be immensely frustrating, as of course you want to engage in real Swedish conversations!

Cultural Barriers

Correct pronunciation isn’t just about words; it’s also about cultural nuances. Mispronunciation might inadvertently confuse Swedes, or they might have to strain to understand you. This can create barriers in forming meaningful connections.

Feeling “Foreign”

Without proper Swedish pronunciation, you may feel like a perpetual outsider in the Swedish language community. Feeling foreign even after learning the language, or after living many years in Sweden, can be disheartening.

The frustrations coming from inadequate pronunciation training can make your Swedish language learning journey less enjoyable.


To overcome these challenges, focusing on pronunciation is essential.

It not only enhances your Swedish skills but also boosts your confidence, enriches your cultural understanding, and makes the learning process far more rewarding.

5 Common Myths about Swedish Pronunciation

“I Can Be Understood, That’s Enough.”

While basic intelligibility is essential, precise Swedish pronunciation enhances your overall communication. It helps you convey nuances, emotions, and intentions accurately, avoiding misunderstandings.

“I’ll Sound Like a Parody of Swedes if I Overemphasise Pronunciation.”

The goal isn’t parody speech but clarity and authenticity. Swedish pronunciation training equips you to speak naturally while being understood. It’s about striking a balance, not sacrificing your unique voice.

“It’s Too Difficult, I’ll Never Get It Right.”

Pronunciation is a skill that improves with practice. It’s about anatomy and muscle coordination. It’s about progress, not perfection. Even small improvements can significantly boost your confidence and communication skills.

“I Can Always Use Translation Apps.”

Relying solely on translation apps limits your Swedish skills. Developing proper pronunciation enhances your speaking and listening abilities, enriching your overall Swedish experience.

“I Don’t Need It for My Goals.”

Precise Swedish pronunciation doesn’t just benefit your own verbal communication; it also aids in listening comprehension and cultural integration. It can open doors to deeper connections and better opportunities.

Tone Your Swedish is a long-term investment in your Swedish skills. The benefits it provides extends beyond just learning the Swedish language, helping you in various personal and professional situations throughout your life.
