Fredrik loves to learn languages, currently, he can converse in: - English - Swedish - Spanish - French - Portuguese - Hungarian - And a little Czech I too am fond of learning languages and I’m currently trying to get better at Swedish. That’s how I came across Fredrik. His “Simple Swedish Podcast” is a useful resource for anyone trying to learn the language. In his podcast, Fredrik speaks slowly whilst using simple words & phrases. For someone who needed to expose himself to the language, I found Fredrik’s podcast to be a valuable resource. In addition to his podcast, he includes transcripts of each episode. I find listening to each episode whilst reading the transcripts to be a great way of increasing my data input for the Swedish language. They’re completely free and you can find them all on his site, In today’s episode, we talk about where he got his love for languages, what tools & habits he implements with his language learning and near to the end of the podcast we get to talk a little Swedish together. If you’re not Swedish, I apologise for not understanding, and if you are Swedish, I apologise for butchering your language!
