Swedish Bubble Bath is a simple game that gradually lets you start learning Swedish words and phrases. You start off with a 50/50 guessing chance on easy topics. You watch 2 bubbles float into the air and you hear a Swedish word spoken when you select one. Then you have to choose the button on either side which correctly translates the spoken word. You start outguessing, but soon start making selections based on your recognition of the spoken or read Swedish.
After you get better, later levels force you to choose between 10 translations. Other levels will force you to read by removing the native speaker speaking the words. Then, other levels will force you to listen, by removing the text. Make sure you play the game with sound on.
