Swedish Survival Phrases Lesson 44 - Your ticket to a culturally rich day in Sweden.
There are so much to do and see in Sweden. And there are times when access to some must-see places require an admission ticket. So today, we're going to work on getting you through the gate as we'll take a look at buying tickets.
In Swedish, "ticket" is Biljett.
In Swedish, "One ticket, please" is En biljett, tack.
En biljett, tack.
Let's break it down by syllable: En biljett, tack.
Now, let's hear it once again: En biljett, tack.
The first word En means "one."
Let's break down this word and hear it one more time: En.
This is followed by Biljett, which in Swedish is "ticket."
So, to recap here, we have En biljett. Literally, this means "one ticket" or "a ticket."
Let’s take a look at the next word: Tack, which means "please."
So, all together, we have En biljett, tack. Literally, this means "One ticket, please."
Now, we'll work on geting tickets for the rest of your party. Let's just recap numbers 1-5 here: En, Två, Tre, Fyra, Fem.
And now, let's put them together:
En biljett.
Två biljetter.
Tre biljetter.
Fyra biljetter.
Fem biljetter.
And just add Tack at the end to make it a polite request.
Whether you're going to a museum or taking the train, this phrase is essential for your stay in Sweden. Tickets are used everywhere. If not, it is common to charge some type of entrance fee. However, some things are free! For instance, the beautiful nature and the Swedish nature reserves.


Okay, to close out this lesson, we'd like for you to practice what you've just learned. I'll provide you with the English equivalent of the phrase and you're responsible for saying it aloud. You'll have a few seconds before I give you the answer, so Lycka till, that means “good luck” in Swedish. Okay, here we go!
"One ticket, please." - En biljett, tack.
En biljett, tack.
"Two tickets, please." - Två biljett, tack.
Två biljett, tack.
