About the Swedish language

Swedish is classified as a Germanic language, along with English, German, and Dutch, among others, and it's mutually intelligible with Danish and Norwegian. Spoken primarily in Sweden and Finland, nearly nine million people speak Swedish as either their first or second language.

Official status of Swedish

Swedish is the official language of Finland, along with Finnish, and is considered the "main" official language in Sweden. In their ever-egalitarian way, the Swedish brought into law the Language Act of 2009, sponsored by the Swedish Ministry of Culture. This act named Swedish and five other languages—Finnish, all Sami dialects, Meänkieli, Romani, and Yiddish—official status of Sweden in an effort to protect the Swedish language and language diversity in Sweden.

Is Swedish easy to learn?

English and Swedish are both Germanic languages. With similar syntax, words, and cognates (e.g., hand in Swedish is the same as hand in English, arm is arm, ring is ring), learning Swedish . . . can be an easy and enjoyable endeavor for native English speakers. Pronunciation can be a challenge for first-time speakers, but with Rosetta Stone's proprietary speech-recognition technology, we'll help you jump that hurdle.

Swedish in the United States: Almost all Swedes have cousins—distant or not—in the United States due to Swedish emigration in the nineteenth century. With waves of people crossing the Atlantic from the late 1800s to just before WWI, Swedes were a welcome group that assimilated well into American life at the time. Hardworking and eager to integrate into their new surroundings, more and more Swedes stopped speaking their ancestral tongue in favor of English. Swedish remained the language of the church and social organizations, but fell out of favor with the new generations. By 1920 a bilingual approach was used in organizational documents in order to accommodate both the young and old in the community. Today, there are pockets of Swedish-speaking groups scattered around the country offering opportunities to speak Swedish and learn about Swedish culture with like-minded people.
