We're at the last lesson of the Pronunciation series! Are you starting to feel more confident? :]

I can't distinguish "brun" from "brunn" in this lesson. They sound exactly the same to me. But I listened to pronunciations available on sv.forvo.com and it was a little more clear.

These five lessons are required for those of us studying Swedish, and I would like to suggest some changes that would certainly further assist us:

1. [Item #2] Differentiate between intonation (for example, in a sentence) and stress or accent of a word. At times I'm not sure which you, the instructors, have in mind. Show and pronounce individual words to demonstrate word stress, and show and read entire sentences. Seeing the words or sentence that you are pronouncing helps immeasurably.

2. [Item #3] When you pronounce brun and brunn, please do so one after the other without any speaking in between. Your added comments in between tend to wipe out your original utterance, which I've tried to retain in my mind. Additional written examples would also be quite helpful.

3. [Item #4] As an English-speaking American I am somewhat unsure of what is meant by our "thicker" sounds, as compared to British English. More examples of American British and both when compared to Swedish would clarify this point.

In your Lesson 2 on vowels: Sometimes, but not always, I detect a diphthong in the pronunciation of รฅ, which seems to slide from oh to oh-a. You did not treat this aspect of the sound. Or am I just imagining that slide?

Tack sรฅ mycket! A most enjoyable and absolutely essential set of lessons!
