Teach Swedish, anyone?

Postby cuclainne » Tue, 12 Jul 2005 3:40 pm

Hey there. Does anyone know of a language centre or someone who's willing to teach Swedish or Norwegian? I would seriously like to learn the language but have been unable to find someone who's willing to teach. Will pay moolah, of course. Thanks.

My wife has a few Scandinavian friends, and she'll pass on your details to see if any of them are interested.

Good luck / Lycka till

Hi...

the only swedish I know is IKEA, mobelfaktar and york alskar deg (either its "I love you" or "gimme that pizza".

Oh, and "swedish meatballs".....that sound alot like English.... :roll:

Its like:
(in swedish)"Hi, I would like to order" ......... "SWEDISH MEATBALLS!!"
"YAH, AND YORK ALSKAR DEG!!!! (GIMME THAT PIZZA!!!)"

I wouldn't mind knowing some swedish people myself.

Cheers fellas
Of course I'm insane, thats because I'm a freaking genius.
So you and you and you, get out of my mind!

Thanks Yutenji. Really appreciate that.

Uh_huh: perhaps you would be interested in joining YP - a lot of Scandinavians at their events. http://www.sbas.org.sg

You are right, stefania. It's actually jag älskar dig ...

No wonder the lady at the counter blushed.... (because I sounded like I wanted to date her dog?)

So much for Pizza!!!

I'll remember that......

But I got the swedish meatballs correct.....didn't I? didn't I?

That's not gonna help because i'll think of them nasty boogers in my floss. Oh by the way, doesn't the whitish cream in it remind you of mucus? Oh my bread is ruined! :cry:
