The Pimsleur® Method is scientifically proven to be your fastest route to near-native fluency. Speak and understand Swedish in just 30 minutes a day. Swedish Phase 1, Units 16-20 build on material taught in prior units. Each lesson provides 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation, and new vocabulary and structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation. Each lesson contains practice for vocabulary introduced in previous lessons. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension, and on learning to speak Swedish. These units contain Reading Lessons designed to teach you to sound out words with correct pronunciation and accent. A Reading Booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format. This course teaches the rikssvenska (or Standard Swedish) dialect, spoken in and around the capital region of Stockholm.
