Swedish belongs to the North German language branch and is spoken by almost all Swedes. Finnish is the main language in Northern Sweden, and the Sami also have their own language. German and Finnish were widely used in the 16th and 17th centuries. In the mid-17th century, French expressions were added as a result of immigration flows. After the Second World War, English replaced these languages as a second language. Tourists can therefore go to Sweden with English and also German. In addition to the regular letters, the Swedish alphabet also has å, ä and ö. In dictionary or phrasebook, these letters come after the z. The dots are important for pronunciation.
