One of my förslag/suggestions when it comes to learning svenska/Swedish is to incorporate popular culture into the learning process. Watching films or series in Swedish with undertexter/subtitles, or for example a popular show that you’ve seen många/many times, but now with Swedish subtitles. This creates a situation where you are underhållen/entertained while learning and you start to pick up ord/words and language melody on the go.
Anton is a good vän/friend of mine since almost 10 years, and have participated många/many times with his musical abilities. Whenever we träffas/meet, we often find time to translate and film a song or two in Swedish. Here’s a shortened version of Let it be, originally by The Beatles, översatt/translated and sung in Swedish.
From a linguistic perspective it should be noted that the korrekta/correct translation would be “låt det vara” but Swedes often shorten it to va. The same goes for the word var (was). Jag va där igår/I was there yesterday.
If you’re craving more sånger/songs like this, have a look at the följande/following links:
Purple rain (Swedish version)
My girl (Swedish version)
The look (Swedish version)

Anton is mycket bra/very good!
I think music is the best way to learn pronunciation and cadence.
I’m an absolute beginner but I read the lyrics on Apple music as jag sjunger/ I sing along (even if I don’t always know what they are saying)! 😃 🎶
I love it when you add songs to your IG reels! Keep giving us more!

It’s always a good thing to have friends with talents that you don’t possess yourself. It makes for magic, and we always have fun making these.
