About the Language
Swedish is spoken natively by over 10 million people, primarily in Sweden and parts of Finland, especially along its coast and on the Aland Islands. Descended from Old Norse, the language of the Germanic peoples who lived in Scandinavia during the Viking Era, Swedish presently has more speakers than any other North Germanic language. It is mutually intelligible with Norwegian and Danish -- speakers of these languages can readily understand one another.
Enhanced PDF Features
The Audio-Forum® Difference: Audio-Forum® PDF books are enhanced with links to MP3 audio files. Speaker icons in the text allow you to hear the corresponding audio. The MP3 files can also be loaded onto your MP3-compatible CD player or digital media player. The PDF books may be read (without enhanced features) on tablet computers. A 10-inch or larger screen is recommended.
