Swedish Lesson #1, 2011-01-20.mov

Hi,
after a conversation earlier today with Claire Maunsell of StillPointWorks or The Next Bend, this idea came up. Please give me some feedback on what you wish for the future. I plan to keep these lessons super short each and every one of them. Preferably under one minute, and never more than two minutes.


Please don't ever forget that if you can't stand me, you don't have to look or follow my blog ...

All my best,
Malin

Well thank you Maaaaaahhhhlin. In my head I have been pronouncing it May Lin. So it was a good thing you had this tutorial or you would have been forever May Lin in my head.

As a geeky singer who loves (but is not very good with!) language I say YES! to these please Malin, lots and lots of language vlogs! I would love to be able to speak and sing in your language! As I think I have mentioned to you (as I am so very proud to be his granddaughter!) , my Grandad used to live in Sweden and had written and published some books in Swedish. Also, do you know of Anne Sofie von Otter, a Swedish mezzo-soprano (like me!)? She is very famous and very wonderful! SHe has so many classical cds but she did a collaboration with Elvis Costello a few years back which is very beautiful if classical is not your thing (although it should be EVERYBODY's thing! There is so much wonderful music out there that just takes a little listening to get your ear around - like another language in itself!). You should look out for her album if you don't know it already!

So, in short I say YES to the language vlogs Malin! Lots please!

And we're just sitting down to watch The Girl Who Played With Fire too! With subtitles unfortunately but maybe after a few more vlogs we can turn them off :-)!!

Ok then Hilary, it's booked, that'll be tomorrows lesson. :-)

@Rebecca, no I had no idea about your grandfather, please tell me more, what books. Good old Ann-sofie yes. Famous also in Sweden. I know of her, and her collaboration with Elvis. I personally am a bigger fan of Elvis than of her. Mostly coz I never have gotten into that kind of music. Sorry to say that darling, perhaps you can make me more knowledgeble.

I have not yet either read or seen any of the Millenniebooks/films. Gotta save some things, don't you.

I'll see if I can find some nice music for you Rebecca, with lyrics in Swedish. A good way of learning a new language I think.

I'll be back.

How fun! My family on my father's side is Sweedish, and I loved hearing my grandfather say table grace in Sweedish. But I can't speak a word of it.

Haha! I had a friend who was Swedish. She was in my Spanish class with me. I remember I grabbed her dictionary once to look up something in Spanish and realized that her dictionary was Swedish>Spanish!! What a lot of good that did for me!!

Hej Malin!
Kan du vara så snäll och lära alla bloggare det här:
"Sju sjösjuka sjömän sköttes av sju sköna sjuksköterskor".
Det blir så skojig ;)!
Hälsningar från Polen!
