Radio Sweden starts "easy Swedish" news show

"Easier language and more explanation"
2:57 min

On Wednesday Swedish Radio begins offering news in Swedish for beginners, or "easy Swedish." The service, "Radio Sweden på lätt svenska," will publish articles on a website and offer a podcast summary of top news each weekday.

The service for language learners is meant to include "new Swedes" who might have limited knowledge of Swedish. 

Host Ingrid Forsberg will choose the most important news stories for a five-to-ten-minute weekday podcast. Forsberg says that she will select content with the intended audience of the newly arrived in mind.

Besides having a simpler language, the news stories will offer more background and explain concepts that might be foreign to newcomers.

Swedish Radio is a public broadcasting service funded through television license fees, which were established by the Swedish Parliament.

Our journalism is based on credibility and impartiality. Swedish Radio is independent and not affiliated to any political, religious, financial, public or private interests.
