Knowing adjectives in Swedish is a powerful skill. It can make it easy to have a conversation about different topics by simply knowing some key words such as “good”, “bad”, “right”, “wrong” etc. Adjectives are words used to describe or modify another person or thing in the sentence for example: I am happy. Swedish is easy.

Below is a list of 20 adjectives that you might come across or use very often. The table contains 3 columns (English, Swedish, and Audio). Make sure you repeat each word after hearing it by either clicking on the audio button or by reading the pronunciation. That should help with memorization as well as improving your pronunciation.
