Hi Montmorency, good to hear from you again. Before starting this vocabulary acquisition
phase, I finished the Pimsleur Swedish course, and did the pronunciation chapter from FSI
Swedish. Pronunciation was important to get right before starting, as sounding the words
out greatly aids in my memorizing them.

I'm not worried about listening comprehension now - that will be swiftly dealt when I
finish vocabulary training, and start extensive L-R.

The 7000 set is now complete. I'm going to take a few days to let the reviews subside,
then add an additional 3000 cards to complete a set of 10000 words learnt. At this stage,
I'm not sure if that will signal the start of the next stage (listening and reading
comprehension using a large number of books/audiobooks), or whether I'll continue
expanding my vocabulary with beginners dictionaries of increasing sizes.

Stig Larsson böckerna är skrivna med simpel svenska och du kan dessutom köpa engelska
varianten och ha bredvid. Finns mycket svensk film, vill du ha serier så kan kanske
"Beck" vara något. Gillar din ambition!

Right, so as you see the word, you are fairly sure of its pronunciation, so it's not really an issue. I am vaguely aware that one can store sounds (and pictures) in Anki, as well as text, so I wondered if you were doing that. I imagine getting the sounds together is a non-trivial task, unless one obtains ready-made decks which include them.


Anyway, I envy you your 7000 words(!) and will envy your 10,000 even more. With that number, theoretically you could probably race through an average NL paperback with little trouble, picking up new words by context along the way.

Probably a very efficient way of going about things, but I don't think I could have put myself through an intensive 200 words a day.

What do you think about the wordlists you have been using? Is it useful words? Do you
recommend the 3000 or 9000 version?
