I intend to send a part of the course each week or 2 parts a week if they are small.
Something about me:
Well, I am Spanish and I love languages, most of people here look at me strangely when they know that I love this, specially at my age (16). But I think this is much better and healthier than going at night feeling the cold and getting drunk each weekend
If you are going to join this group, I would like you to reply to this post telling if you know some swedish or you don't, just to make the newbie classes less heavier. But anyway I think we will have them
Please, reply to this topic (newcommers are welcome) and tell everyone you know who would be interested in this subject.
Also, I think that the first and really important lesson is writing the special letters that aren't shown in most of foreign keyboards. I suppose that everyone can make ä and ö. The problem comes with å. To write that character you must press alt + 0229. Also, you can install a swedish keyboard configuration in Windows. If you do this, you will get ä where the spanish accent is (on Ñ's right), ö where the the Ñ is, and å just over ä. That's the lesson for today, get used to the swedish keyboard (sorry, as my keyboard is spanish, I can't tell which are the keys in other keyboard, as reference, think that L is between K and Ñ, so you can locate the Ñ key now )
By the way, the method I am going to use is Teach Yourself Swedish:
Important note: I am using this method as guidelines to teach, so it doesn't mean that I am going to copy it. Also, remember this point of the rules for Virtual Schools:
If tutors were not available for a certain language, groups can be built around learners interested in learning the language together. One learner would assume the role of tutor.
That's exactly what I am going to do, so don't see me as an expert, i will just have this role as it seems that nobody with advanced knowledges of Swedish turned up.
EDIT 2010-09-29: Renamed thread "Swedish Discussion & Minor Questions" (formerly "Swedish Course and Discussion"), since there's no tutoring going on here and we need a place to put minor questions. / Dingbats
