Can German win back the hearts of Swedes?

4:50 min

If the foreign language popularity contest, German is not in the "in-crowd" - at least here in Sweden. At one time, German was the foremost foreign language in Swedish schools, but it's been in the doldrums for a decade or two. This spring, the Goethe Institute, which is sort of a cheerleader for German culture and language abroad, hopes to change that by stepping up their "Ich Liebe Tyska" campaign to encourage more people to learn the language.
