    The third and fourth weeks of January are, most likely, the poorest weeks of the year for people living in Sweden. I blame the holidays. Actually, lots of people blame the holidays. But it also has to do with the way Sweden doles out money.Money is important after you’ve just spent most of it on presents, ham, and alcohol. Not necessarily in that order. If you have kids, you may have spent even more money on presents and alcohol. I don’t know. Santa needs his Christmas cheer in liquor form to make it through the night.

    27 Jan 2015 | 9:36 am
    At my friendly neighborhood IKEA, there is a sign staring back me when I leave, which is covered in green, yellow, and red smiley faces. The faces remind me of the best time to visit IKEA based on the number of people in the store. The red means super duper busy, the yellow super busy, and the green busy. Or something like that. I try to hit the green times to avoid the crowds. Fewer people means more time to browse and wander aimlessly—an easy thing to do in the massive stores. But wandering aimlessly in an IKEA (or clicking aimlessly on IKEA.se) can also be a good way to learn Swedish.

    Hejsan hejsan! Human beings need and want all over the place. Consequently, one of the most basic and, frankly, most important things you can learn to say in a foreign language is “I want”. It’s simply something you want to know how to say! (ho ho) In Swedish, there are two easy ways to say “want”: att vilja and att vilja ha. The catch is this: there’s a difference! Let me explain. Vilja is used when you “want to [do something]”. In other words, vilja can only be followed by a verb in infinitive form. For example: Lotta vill springa ett…

It’s a wonderful phrase that really comes in handy during the months of December and January every year. Swedish has a lot of phrases that get thrown around during the holiday season. There’s god jul (Merry Christmas) and gott nytt år (Happy New Year), for example. But those are generally used for…

In English, we have three articles: a, an, and the. A and an have the same function: to show that the dog in the phrase “a dog” is not a specific dog. A and an are known as indefinite articles. The is used to show that the dog in the phrase “the dog” is a specific dog. The is known as the definite article in English. The Swedish article system is much more interesting. Check it out:…
