Use the spelling and/or sound of each word similar to Swedish to help you figure out its meaning.

After single words in English spelled like Swedish, a good next step is short phrases of several words similar to Swedish.

To keep it easiest, these are phrases but not sentences, as are in Phrase Books for Travel. Sentences may have too many words to deal with when you are just beginning.

The English version is placed first to get you in the habit of looking for and recognizing English words similar to ones in your own language and deducing what the English words mean by yourself without being given the translation first.

From the key words similar to Swedish you should be able to make out the meanings of the other English connecting words that are not similar to Swedish. Use the words similar to Swedish as clues to the meanings of the other English words.

Try to just get the overall meaning of each phrase without trying to translate each unfamiliar English word. Many are like phrases in Swedish that express ideas you have said or heard often before.

These phrases in English are followed by the Swedish words that would be a good guess using as clues the English words similar to Swedish. So as a result these are rough translations of the English phrases, which may not be the exact meanings, but will be close enough that you could deduce what is meant.

After the English and Swedish versions of each phrase is the pronunciation of the English phrase.

The easiest way is to just read them. Or if you see some you might possibly use on your trip to an English speaking country, you can try to pronounce them, which is not easiest.

Consider each phrase as a puzzle you can probably solve. Have fun with the challenge of it. Try to guess what each English phrase means without looking at the rough Swedish version. See how far down the list you can get.
