Hej Maggie,

Thank you again for your feedback. It can be very tricky to hear certain small differences when you're learning a new language. Swedish has quite a few strange sounds as well!


Unfortunately, I can't comment on French pronunciation since it's a little outside my language expertise, but "dyr" is not pronounced as "deer". The closest comparison I could give you is that "y" in "dyr" is pronounced similarly to "y" in "any".


As for your last question regarding "รถ", I can't speak for the French - but, the pronunciation is the same for a long and short "รถ". The only difference is that the long "รถ" is more drawn out, like "รถl" (beer) while "รถ" is shorter in "sรถnder" (broken).


I hope this helps a little!

Hej,


In this lesson as well, the explanation for "Y" does not make sense: it's described as sounding like, what I would write as "ooeu," but then is given in examples like "dyr" which is pronounced as 'deer,' with a hard "e" sound. Please give an example of when it sounds like "ooeu." Also, for "รถ," what is the difference between Long B and short? "fur" and "her" sound exactly the same to me. Tack sรฅ mycket!

Hej Mohsen,

Usually, if a vowel is followed by a double consonant, it's a short vowel. For example: "kopp" (cup), "tack" (thanks) and "katt" (cat).


If there's only a single consonant or no consonant, it's usually a long vowel. For example: "hej" (hi), "nej" (no) and "se" (see).


I hope this helps! ๐Ÿ˜‡

hรฉta ["to be called"], se ["see"]

nej ["no"]

examples are confusing, which one is short and which one is long, also the same confusion is as follow

stol ["chair"]

moln ["cloud"]

kopp ["cup"]

ost ["cheese"]

Hi,


Can you add in vocabulary section vowels and others letters ? it's better for repeat and alphabet it's the first point to learn.


Have a good day :)
