Spoken Swedish is by far the hardest area for Swedish learners. Native Swedes often struggle to understand accents, and they are good English speakers too, so they often switch to English, meaning reduced opportunities for learner immersion. No one else offers actual tools for how to improve pronunciation and reduce accent. Often, it’s just recommended to ‘listen and repeat’, with no specific guidance on how to actually pronounce the new sounds in the vocal tract.
You may also feel unsure of what words to use, how to string them together and how to get a flow when you speak. Maybe you feel you lack the confidence, even though you know quite a lot? Or maybe you want some help to put your very first sentences together? Maybe you have no one to practice with?
