The English Swedish Joke Book is an excellent way for Swedish people to practise their English – and for foreigners who are trying to learn Swedish. There is now an audio version from iTunes so you can hear the jokes as well as read them. There are great jokes like:
“Mamma, får jag ha behå nu när jag är sexton?”
Or this classic:
Pojken: Älskar du mig?”
Flickan: Det är klart att jag älskar dig.
Pojken: Hur länge kommer du att älska mig?
Flickan: Jag kommer alltid att älska dig.
Pojken: Hur länge är för alltid?
Flickan: Ungefär en vecka.
I first learnt German by telling jokes to people in my awful German. But I quickly progressed and now I’m pretty fluent – and know lots of great jokes as well. When you’re trying to improve your skills in a foreign language, reading is one of the best ways – and reading jokes is probably the best of all.
