7 Awesome Songs to Learn Swedish Through Music

You read a thousand times that consistency is key in order to master a language. You built your own study routine and you stick to it regularly. Yet, sometimes you cannot bring yourself to open the grammar book or to practice vocabulary with one of your study apps. We all have those days and it’s ok! Every once in a while you can take a day off, just make sure it doesn’t become a week and then a month off.

Luckily there are many fun language activities that you can fit into your day. Music is one of my favourites. Don’t underestimate the benefits of listening to songs in your target language! It’s a great way to make expressions and vocabulary stick without you putting an effort into it.

Songs to Learn Swedish Through Music
