    Learn all of the words and phrases a traveler needs to know! eTicket Swedish is a simple and practical Swedish audio phrasebook that covers all of the travel essentials. You'll be able to greet people, ask for directions, order at a restaurant, go shopping, and more. Plus, there's plenty of repetition and easy access to the phrases you need to get the most out of your trip.

    Story

    After 20min of forcing my self to keep listening I had to stop. The result was zero learning, and the lost of excitement to try further.
    They make you repeat and endless list of phrases that you may eventually use. It goes: "this is how to say bla bla bla in Swidish" and then you hear a pretty long phrase that you are supposed to simply imitate without any comprehension.
    FORGET IT!!
    (Go for Pimsleur. Expensive but really effective and fun)

    In the first 10 lessons, you’ll cover the basics: saying hello, asking/giving information, scheduling a meal or a meeting, asking/giving directions, and more. You’ll be able to handle minimum courtesy requirements, understand much of what you hear, and be understood at a beginning level, but with near-native pronunciation skills.

    Starting from complete zero you are still perfectly able to learn basic Swedish with very little effort and in a pleasurable way. Importantly they make it dynamic in terms of "interactive" dialogues, but specially in terms of phrase structure. You get to "play" with the word order when the sentence requires so, and surprisingly with their lead you get to do it naturally! This creates a comfortable zone for you to dear open your mouth and trying express your self instead of being blocked if you don't remember by heart the exact thing you are supposed to say.
    Further, the speakers they chose have very pleasant voices and accents, in striking contrast to many of other of these books. I bought so far 5 different audiobooks to learn Swedish. The other four were an irritating waist of time that make you loose interest and courage. This book is clearly pretty expensive, but SO WORTH IT!! :))))
    Go for it and enjoy!
