I had been studying Swedish on and off many years ago, but never achieved more than beginner level due to lack of motivation. This year I have decided to prioritize it. To begin with, I quickly refreshed my Swedish to Rivstart A then I proceeded further to somewhat B level through self study. When ‘Strong Swedish’ popped up, I was standing in a crossroad where I was struggling to take my Swedish further, not knowing where to go next.
My key takeaway from ‘Strong Swedish’ is that I can combine Swedish learning with everyday life, i.e. by soaking myself in the abundant information out there in poddar, internet news feed and YouTube videos etc., I am practising Swedish while having fun by enjoying the information acquired. In this way, I can only feel more motivated.
There are hiccups along the way. Just be patient and give yourself more time. Sooner or later, you will be amazed by how far you have come:-)
