“Thank” and “you” are two words that when put together make up a very polite phrase that expresses gratitude — Thank You. And this kind word, as simple as it may be, is a very important word that Swedes LOVE to say. Ja, love in all capital letters because Swedes really, truly, love to say “thank you” or shall we say Tack in Swedish. That is not really a bad thing because expressing gratitude through words or deeds is a sign of respect, appreciation, and humility. Anyone and everyone should be able to say thank you no matter the season. If you’re learning Swedish or maybe taking a trip to Sweden, knowing how to say this gracious phrase would be very advantageous when greeting locals. ”
