    Default learning Swedish language

    Hello! Next year my sister would like to do something completely different. She have to go abroad for a studies for at least 5 month’s. She was thinking about a destination and now she know where to go: Sweden! Maybe you wonder why she want to go there but the fact is that she love cold weather and apparently Sweden is beautiful. The course she will be following there is in English, but she hope to learn some Swedish as well. She already learned something: ‘studera utomlands’! This means something like ‘studying abroad’. Can anyone tell if it is a difficult language to learn? Thanks guys!

    As far as I know, Sweden is beautiful! A friensd of mine studied there for 6 months, and enjoyed it a lot! Luckily, they speak English very well: Swedish seems to be not so simple to learn!
    Booking has never been so quick!

    The primary language of Sweden is Swedish, a North Germanic language, related and very similar to Danish and Norwegian, but differing in pronunciation and orthography. Norwegians have little difficulty understanding Swedish, and Danes can also understand it, with slightly more difficulty than the Norwegians.[98] Although Swedish is the dominant language, it is not an official language. Sweden Finns are Sweden's largest linguistic minority, comprising about 3 percent of Sweden's population and Finnish is recognised as a minority language. Four other minority languages are also recognised (Meänkieli, Sami, Romani and Yiddish). The issue of whether Swedish should be declared the official language has been raised and the parliament voted on the matter in 2005 but the proposal narrowly failed.
