Hi guys! This is my first post on the forums! My name is Patrick and I am hoping to get some help from you who are also learning Swedish, and from native speakers as well. I have been studying Swedish for over a year as I am planning to move to Sweden at the end of next year. My native language is Polish but I am also fluent in English and I have studied in both languages as I was quite young when I moved to the UK. I have noticed that I am making very little progress in terms of being able to hold a conversation or understand spoken Swedish. I have tried so many different resources: to start with I used Duolingo, then I got some audio courses and grammar books, I try to watch Swedish TV programmes and I have visited Sweden several times to see if that would help. I love the language and I don't feel like it's forced, I actually enjoy learning it I was told by some other people that withing a few months they became able to hold conversations. So I have a several questions if any of you guys can help: What do you think is the best method? How to improve my listening skills? Are there any native speakers on here who would be willing to help me practice? Or other learners who would like to try and practice with me? Do you think it is necessary to attend classes? Thanks a lot for your answers!
