  • Practise their pronunciation with focus on vowel and consonant sounds as well as prosody (stress) with the help of audio files.
  • Learn and revise the indefinite and definite forms in the plural and singular.
  • Learn the Swedish practice of spelling of medical terms in Greek and Latin.

Interview with the author

What made you write the book Kroppen på svenska?

Health care professionals in Sweden obviously need to know the Swedish words for organs and body parts, so I always practice that with my own students of medical Swedish. But I have noticed that many doctors who already speak Swedish quite well sometimes lack words for the body parts, perhaps thinking that Latin is enough. It’s not, and this is not good for the well-being of the patients.
