Svenska 101

A quick lesson in Swedish.  If you ever need to greet someone in Swedish or find yourself desperately trying to impress a hot Swedish chick who’s said hello, keep this typical greeting in mind:

Greeting: Hej! Hur är laget?

Response: Under kontroll.


Best.  Language.  Ever.

    I kind like “Skapligt/Hyfsat” myself. Just rrrrrrrrrolls
    off the tongue.

    That website seems to be a pretty good authority. The respose goes something like “Oohn-Dar Con-Troll”. Then again, my pronunciation is terrible, so don’t listen to me.
