My name is Fredrik and I grew up in a small town close to Gothenburg, Sweden.
In my life I’ve spent a lot of time exploring the world and learning languages. Except Sweden I have lived in Australia, Turkey, Hungary, and currently living in Valencia, Spain.
I speak fluent Swedish, English and Spanish, and I have a conversational level in French, Portuguese, Hungarian, Czech and Russian.
The more I studied languages, the more I realised how bad traditional methods for language learning actually are, with their heavy focus on grammar and formal language with lots of texts and explanations.
By trying out different things over the years and talking to lots of people, I discovered many methods and styles that were much more efficient!
At the same time I realised that a lot of people struggle with learning Swedish, my mother tongue. Many challenges are different than in other languages, and there were not many resources for intermediate learners.
I decided to try and help Swedish learners.
I started the Simple Swedish Podcast, my YouTube channel,
and I started teaching Swedish online using only my own materials and methods.
I also created a course for the most difficult part of learning Swedish – to get from an intermediate to an advanced level – the Strong Swedish course!
I really enjoy these activities, and I keep finding out about new ways I can help people with their Swedish studies. This is what this website is dedicated to!
