Hej Victor!


I'm glad you like this format! :innocent:


Yes, good observation! We do tend to say those short words (hej, tack, nej) two times!

I've talked to many Swedes about this, and they, just like me, don't really know why we're doing it!

One theory is that we say them two times to make sure the other person hears us, or understand that we really mean what we say. "Tack tack" therefore becomes more of a "thank you very much".

Another theory is just that the words are so short, so we say them two times to make them longer, and make them have more meaning in that way.


So you can say those kinds of greating words at any time you'd like!

Another thing is also that "hej hej" can be used as "good bye".


About "hejsan".

This word is very informal and can sometimes be seen as a bit childish!

But I sometimes see older people and people in formal setting say this word as well, so if it sounds good to you, don't be afraid to use it!


See you!

I just wanted to answer the question you put to us learners during the lesson about the format. My answer is yes, indeed, I do like the format for this lesson. Since I have your attention now, I would like to 'use English to my advantage' though in English, rather, to learn Swedish in this case. May I ask: When are good occasions to use hej hej or even tack tack. When I was in Stockholm - I think it was at Skansen - I noticed a man parting from a family, a couple with two children, who, upon taking leave, said 'tack tack' to them. It seemed very charming, but I do not know when phrases such as this, and hej hej, and even hejsan, are appropriate for me?
