Hot on the heels of its Norwegian cousin, Swedish Verb Blitz for iOS joins our growing catalogue of language apps on Apple’s App Store!
With well over a hundred verbs, Swedish Verb Blitz is a great way to practise your svensk grammar. And as they represent some of the most commonly used Swedish words, it’s also a great way to expand your vocabulary.
Swedish verb Reference and drill 🇸🇪
As well as the essential verb bank, there are multiple self-test tools included too. These include drills for meaning, as well as translation quizzes for conjugation practice. The full line-up is as follows:
- Infinitive quiz
- Grid quiz (infinitives)
- Conjugation quiz
- Snap game (conjugations)
- Gapfill (spelling – ideal for writing practice)
Additionally, there’s a performance section to track your progress. Each time you play an activity, the app will note the verbs you found the trickiest. Just check back in ‘Performance’ to review and revise them.
Easy… And hard!
Learners of svenska are relatively lucky when it comes to learning verb tables. With its Scandinavian cousin languages, it shares a highly simplified system for person.
However, irregular verbs can still be tricky. Like other Germanic languages, some very common Swedish verbs change their root vowel to indicate tense – a feature called ablaut. In English, we see it at work in verb patterns like do – did – done and swim – swam – swum. A svensk example is the verb ‘to burn’, which is brinna – brann – brunnit.
You’ll find the most frequent of these so-called strong verbs here in the app, so you can learn, revise and drill.
Free for all
As always with our Verb Blitz apps, Swedish Verb Blitz is a free download, supported by in-app ads. We’ll never put ads in learning games themselves, but restrict them to menus for the least disruption.
