Swedish word of the week!

1 Comment

Sorry for the slow update of blog posts, but unfortunately my internet hasn’t been working properly since Friday… It should be getting better in a couple of days, though! Thanks for sticking with me!

 

So it’s time for another Swedish word of the week! This one might not be as fun as blåbär last week, but it’s definitely one of the most useful Swedish words (I think anyway).
And here’s a little bit of fun fact about the word: there’s no correct one-word translation to this word, in any other language in the world. That’s right, that’s how seriously cool we are.

So this weeks word is… duh-duh-dun-dun-duuun…!

Lagom.

Pronounced la[as in lard. yuck, I know…]-gome[as in gone, but with an m]. La-gome.

It means something like “just enough”. Not too much and not too little, but the perfect amount of something – anything, really. Another fun fact is that this word is sometimes used when trying to describe Swedes with one word. Most Swedes are very lagom.

There you have it! A Swedish and a Swede lesson, all in one!
