Swedish is an SVO-language, which means that a sentence basically is built out of a subject, verb, and object in that order. Because of this, a lot of sentences can be translated into English word by word.

Han är student.
He is a student.

Thus, you can construct easy sentences in this manner:
Jag är [adjective, occupation].
I am [adjective, occupation].

Example sentences

Jag är student.
I am a student.

Jag är lärare.
I am a teacher.

Jag är glad.
I am happy.

Jag är engelsman / amerikan / kanadensare / australiensare / nyazeeländare.
I am an Englishman / American / Canadian / Australian / New Zealandian.

Jag är svensk.
I am a Swede.

In Swedish, letters often get left out in the spoken language. This is especially common at the end of a word. That doesn’t mean that it sounds funny, though, if you do pronounce that ending letter. You should, however, keep it in mind, so that you won’t get confused when there are differences between spoken and written Swedish.
