Intensive Swedish vocab acquisition for a good kick start in the language.

Have done the Pimsleur course, so have a good start with pronunciation and basic
phrases.

Created a deck in Anki by purchasing this publication:
http://www.tpbooks.com/about_English-Swedish_vocabulary_3000 _words/113
as an EPUB, then running a script across it to convert it into a format suitable for
import into Anki. The content is copyrighted, so I can't share this deck, sorry.

Plan is 200 new words per day + scheduled reviews. Words will be reviewed as per the
schedule after the initial 15 days, along with getting into some native materials (L-R
if I can find suitable material for purchase).

I am aware that the number of stacked cards will soon become burdensome. I post this
for neither pride nor merit, but as people have a tendency to proclaim that such a
thing "cannot be done", it will serve as either proof to their claim, or evidence to
the contrary.

Good luck! If you're committed, then you should be able to complete you goal. I don't think I'd ever be able to do it though xP

And even if you find you have to slow down halfway through, you'll still achieve your goal as long as you keep going :)

I won't say it can't be done, but I'm glad I'm not the one doing it.

Swedish is a lovely language by the way, and since you have a background in both English and German, it should be very easy for you.

200 words a day does sound ambitious. For comparison I'm slowly edging towards (and
sometimes away from :) ) the 50 per day mark in Danish, but that includes cognates and
words I half know, etc, and it's probably only in the range 20-30 really new words.


But I certainly won't say it won't be done, and the way your have set it forth means
it's quite predictable with a clear end goal in sight. And 3000 sounds like a tidy
vocabulary to have for a basis to build on for the future.

I'll be watching from the sidelines and cheering you on.


I think there is probably a lot to be said for rapid word acquisition, especially if it
can be accompanied by frequent repetition and exposure to native materials that help
put it in context.

Your thread title sounds like some new model of Scandinavian robot. Which is, in a way, related, as machine-like
discipline will certainly be needed for this challenge. :-P

Keep us updated!
