Intermediate Swedish: A Grammar and Workbook combines an accessible intermediate reference grammar and related exercises in one volume that covers most of the topics that students might expect to deal with in their second year of learning Swedish. The book follows on naturally from and complements its companion volume, Basic Swedish.
Each of the 26 units discusses one or more grammar topics, with examples that are subsequently practised in the exercises that follow.
The book presents the contemporary language against a backdrop of Swedish culture, society, geography, customs and history. Each unit ends with a cultural text which outlines an aspect of Swedish culture and, in nearly all cases, exemplifies and consolidates the grammar topic examined in the unit.
• clear grammatical explanations with examples in Swedish and English
• vocabulary based on a major corpus of written Swedish in order to guarantee authenticity and relevance
• cross-references to other units
• over 100 exercises with a key to all the correct answers.
The book is suitable both for independent study and for class use. It can be used by intermediate students and those who have grasped the basics of grammar and vocabulary.

These titles combine explanation with exercise work. The Basic Grammar Workbooks are for learners starting at elementary level. Intermediate Grammar Workbooks follow on from these and are for learners who have achieved basic proficiency and wish to progress to more complex language. Each combines clear, concise grammar explanations with communicatively oriented exercises to help build confidence and fluency.
Suitable for independent learners and students on taught courses, the Basic and Intermediate volumes together form a structured course of the essentials of each language's grammar.
All Grammar Workbooks are available as inspection copies.
