Becoming fluent in Swedish

Hi everyone! I was just doing some pronounciation exercises on learningswedish.se . I noticed that pronounciation gets quity tricky when some letters are not pronounced. Does it take quite long to actually get used to it? And is it quite a big problem people learning Swedish face? As Swedish seems to be quite an easy language in terms of grammar, this must be the one thing that makes learning it especially difficult?

My wife is learning Swedish and mute letters is not her greatest problem. I think you get used to it. Articles and prepositions will probably be a greater problem.

I don't really stuggle with articles. I'd say prepoitions in Swedish can be difficult but so far, the most difficult thing goe me is mute letters and irregular pronounciation.

I don't seem to have any problem with it. I talk frequently with a friend who lives in Stockholm and I'm used to listening to his pronunciation. I read also, but I'm lucky that I hear him every other day.
