About the Author

Emil Molander, Author of Kroppen på svenska

Emil Molander is a trained and registered teacher of Swedish as a second language, with many years of experience working with foreign doctors. He teaches Medical Swedish through yrkessvenska.se and klarapys.com, and he is the founder of PYS medicin C1, an exam of medical Swedish for foreign doctors, nurses and dentists who want to validate their Swedish skills and apply for a Swedish medical license.

What made you write the book Kroppen på svenska?

Health care professionals in Sweden obviously need to know the Swedish words for organs and body parts, so I always practice that with my own students of medical Swedish. But I have noticed that many doctors who already speak Swedish quite well sometimes lack words for the body parts, perhaps thinking that Latin is enough. It’s not, and this is not good for the well-being of the patients.

How should Kroppen på svenska be used?

First of all, you need to make sure that you know how to conjugate nouns, so I would start with that chapter, followed by the chapter on pronunciation. With that, you are ready to get started with the anatomy. Chapter 4 introduces the main body parts through an annotated illustration where you match the body part with the Swedish and the Latin terms. There are many exercises that you can use to practice the words in each chapter.
