The Most Important Verbs in Swedish

The heart of every language lies in its verbs. If you can correctly recognize and form verbs, you have already mastered the most important aspect of grammar.
To immediately start expressing a lot in Swedish, you only need five verbs in the beginning.
These are:
  1. to have
  2. to be
  3. to go
  4. can
  5. to do
Learn these five Swedish verbs in the present tense in all six conjugated forms by heart: I go, you go, he/she/it goes, we go, you (plural) go, they go.
