Swedish is so much more than a language
One of the most striking features of the Swedish language when you open a German-Swedish dictionary is the uncanny similarities between the two languages. Swedish and German both belong to the Germanic language family. Swedish is a rather uncomplicated language to learn, as long as you have your Langenscheidt German-Swedish dictionary with you, you should come by without any troubles. To put it simply, Swedish is a simplified version of German, at least from a grammatical perspective. Swedish will not torture you with numerous case declensions, verb conjugations or too many irregular plurals. One of the best things about learning Swedish is that it opens many language doors: from Swedish, learning Norwegian or Danish will be a piece of cake. Swedish is the most important Scandinavian language and you should always have your Swedish dictionary at reach. Swedish is also a major second language in Finland.

Learning Swedish is fun
Swedish is a beautiful language with a peculiar melody: Swedish words have two tonic stresses, a strong and a weak one. This feels like singing when you speak Swedish but it is one of the most enjoyable aspects of the learning process. You will notice in your Swedish dictionary that there are three special characters used in Swedish: ä and ö should be familiar to you, whereas å is letter that you might be encountering for the first time. It sounds like a long "o".
