Now that I have moved to Sweden, I vowed to myself that whenever I’m out and about I will only use Swedish to communicate. This has led to many embarrassing moments where I had to ask the person serving me to talk more slowly. I know by doing this, it’ll help speed up my learning and get over the fear of looking like an idiot in front of people.
Studying Time - 4.5 Hours
What Did I Work On?
Reading Harry Potter out loud with a Swedish native correcting me as I go. The immediate feedback is great!
What Did I Struggle With?
The ‘flow’ of speaking Swedish. There is definitely a rhythm to speaking Swedish, I can tell that I don’t have it… yet.
A Goal For Next Week.
To keep on reading Harry Potter out loud with a Swedish native next to me.
