Learning Swedish Through IKEA

    The only exposure I ever got to the Swedish language was from the Flintstones’ episode about the two boarders called Ole and Sven. IKEA has taught me the rest of the Swedish language.

    When a guy named Ingvar Kamprad founded Ikea, he decided to name the furniture with proper names and words, so it would be easier to remember.  Well, easier for Swedes. Too bad he didn’t predict his company would be all over the world, leaving the rest of us clueless when it comes to the names. So learn how Swedes pronounce them and stop sounding ridiculous.
