Swedish is one of the easiest language for English speakers to learn. But you don’t have to be fluent to use some classic Swedish expressions. Not all of these are appropriate in a polite conversation, but they’re sure to make you look like you belong.
1. A Swede is not “ahead of the game,” they “lie in the front edge”: Ligger i framkant.
2. A Swede is not “dressed to the nines,” they are “dressed up to their teeth”: Klädd up till tänderna.
