Are you learning Swedish?
Do you want a fun way to learn Swedish?
Youtube is an awesome resource to learn Swedish with Swedish Youtubers.
It is different than watching TV shows in Swedish, as they are trained to speak a particular way.
Youtube videos are mostly native speakers, meaning you’ll be able to hear more casual pronunciations.
By watching Youtube videos you will catch on their lingo and become a pro in no time.
These are the best Swedish YouTubers to learn Swedish.
Benefits of Watching Swedish Youtubers
- You listen in a more casual setting, you’ll be less likely to sound like a robot.
- Watching vlogs provides more visuals as most vloggers use a lot of hand gestures and love pointing to objects. This helps you understand and link a word and object together.
- More engaging content. I have personally found watching Youtube videos are more engaging than using a boring textbook.

Her Swedish channel features videos in slow, medium and fast paced Swedish. The slow Swedish definitely helps if you are a beginner, you’ll be able to understand each word with ease. Her content helps a lot as she incorporates her accent without sounding like a robot while speaking slowly.
