Notes so far:

1. Knowing English and being comfortable with German means that I've been able to hook
around 90% of words to words that sounds similar to the English or German equivalent.
Even French has been a slight help - e.g. affisch = poster.

2. Using an SRS alleviates the pressure of having to make a conscious effort to
remember all these words. I can just let go and enjoy the learning process.

3. Average retention rate is around 80% perfectly, I would venture to say 90%
accounting for simple mistakes (mixing up a, ä, å, or using incorrect gender).

4. It feels more of a pleasure than a chore.

So would you say that Swedish shares a large vocabulary with German? I wouldn't mind learning to read Swedish one day :)

Definitely a strong correlation between the two, though often with slightly different
spelling, e.g. berühmt = berömd.

Ahhh, well, that's wonderful news.

Have you started with the L & R yet?

I'll most likely start LR when I finish learning these 3000 words, and the subsequent
reviews start to spread out a little.
