If you want already have some basic knowledge of Swedish and just want to hear Swedish phrases and try to get the pronunciation down, this is a good listen. This could be improved by providing a list of phrases somewhere so that one can also see the letters and spelling (otherwise, when you see a word, you have no idea which pronunciation you should use or how it relates to something you heard in the book). However, repeating words and attempting to memorize them just isn't helpful for learning basic Swedish. It's context independent, so except for a few terms, like please and thank you, you won't know which situations make sense for which words. And given a lack of situation, you won't necessarily remember any of it, since learning takes place in contexts. This could be improved, for example, by having a narrator describe a situation in which you might use these terms, like "you are in a restaurant ordering herring" or the likie. Finally, some of the words are ones that you won't imagine ever using under any circumstances.
