Learning Swedish Update

I have now completed the A1 level of Swedish at Folkuniversitetet! I was planning to continue with the A2 course but the class that fits my schedule is on a break for the summer so now it's back to learning via Rosetta Stone. I'm understanding a lot of words and feel like I catch a lot when I listen to conversations, watch Swedish tv, or read the newspaper. But I know talking is what I need to work on to really improve. So, anyone out there willing to do a Swedish language exchange with me? Or know where I can set one up? I know it sounds easy. I'm surounded by Swedish speakers. But when I try to speak Swedish they quickly realize I don't know much Swedish so they switch to English and I don't feel like I can ask my co-workers to practice Swedish with me because a large part of why I was hired at this position was to help them practice their English. I think I've already made a lot of progress with Swedish and I really think I can get a hold on this language in the time we are here so I will definitely keep trying. Until I find someone to practice with, I'll be practicing with my computer!
Love Always,

You are doing much better than us! Maybe you should talk to Fedito. He seems to be picking it up very quickly! Maybe a year from now we can have a 3 minute conversation in Swedish about the weather...
