NOT THE LATEST EDITION : An updated edition is available elsewhere at blurb.com -- this is the FIRST edition.
If you have taken a beginner's course of Swedish, or already have some background, this book will take you the next Step. Like the first book in the series, Swedish the Basics, the focus in this volume is on practical Swedish, for people learning Swedish in North America. This book continues with an introduction into the grammar, but the primary emphasis is on building a working vocabulary allowing you to read on your own.
The dialogue and reading pieces include a diverse set of characters in a wide range of settings.
