If it's any consolation to you, I didn't know that one either, although I usually score high on vocabulary tests.1. sätta sitt ljus under skäppan
Many of them are 'translated' in the Norstedts online En-Sw/Sw-En dictionary, which is free of charge.Of course I'm interested in improving my score on the test, but more importantly I'd like to be able to recognize such idioms when I hear them on TV or in conversations. Since taking the test last month, for example, I've already heard the expression "få sina fiskar varma" twice.
Thank you^^Look in the resources thread in Nordic Languages, it's full of amazing stuff.
The best one is by far the online course that is run by the University of Iceland, which is at icelandic.hi.is.
But yeah, the lessons are usually quite hard to understand, it's difficult to break through, but with a background in Old Norse, you'll have no problem~!

Kilton, I've already sourced quite a few suitable examples of spoken Swedish, including youtube clips of songs with English subtitles (my favourite language-learning technique - singing!) What's Rosetta Stone? I'll google it...If you have specific requests or queries, I might be able to help.
Hi I use www.forvo.com (I use it for Norwegian but there is also Swedish). It seems to be natives pronouncing different words. I find it quite helpful at times.Hi everyone
I'm in South Africa, on the other end of the earth from Sweden, & with no-one to pronounce Swedish tones for me. I have been scouring the net for resources, especially audio, but there's precious little.
Can anyone help? Paying for software, etc., is unfortunately not possible.
