Are you tired of boring Swedish textbooks?
The kind of "Hello, my name is ..." We are. Definitely. We know that learning Swedish is hard work, but why shouldn't hard work be fun? That's why we created "Alfred the Ghost" a textbook based on a coherent story instead of dull dialogues, which starts very simply, but develops into a fascinating novel. Can't stop reading? Well then - you will have to learn Swedish

We have carefully selected the most frequently used words in the Swedish language and made sure that the story is primarily made up of them. Separate texts and exercises focus on conversational topics that will prepare you for living in Sweden.

Grammar is a headache? Not with "Alfred the Ghost". Uncover the structure of the Swedish language with pictures, informal yet comprehensive explanations, and plenty of easy-to-remember examples.

Repetition is the key to learning a language. At www.skapago.eu/alfred you will find plenty of exercises, a vocabulary trainer, videos about pronunciation, and a whole lot more.

Our Swedish teachers have co-created this book. They know all the obstacles you might incur and can help you with individual training. Since they teach through online video conferences, you can take lessons anywhere on the planet. Schedule a free demo lesson at www.skapago.eu.

The Inaugural Santa Fe Literary Festival was a huge success!

Collected Works was very proud to have been on-site all weekend as the official bookstore of the Santa Fe Festival. Bestselling, prizewinning authors and literary legends like Margaret Atwood, Joy Harjo, Colson Whitehead, Sandra Cisneros, Jon Krakauer, amongst others, spent time in our mini-bookstore in the lobby of the Convention Center and signed hundreds of books, which we now have in stock. So if you missed the festival but are looking for a signed copy of one of their books, please call us or come in to browse.
