Swedish learning request: Swedish A.B.C.

Hey Duo-linguists!

I am learning Swedish here now and I have been enjoying it so far! As a huge dyslectic I appreciate the vocal options Duolingo offers with all excersizes, as well as it seeing answers with typos as correct still.

However I am having huge difficulty recognizing the links between what is written and how things are pronounced. Especially the dotted A-s and O-s. When we learn our mother language we learn to talk first, then we learn which letters correspond with which sounds, then we start combining letters into words and phrases.

I feel like I am missing the vital link of sound and symbol.

Does a Swedish ABC song excist? and if so, could that become a basic course on Duolingo?

Cheers,

Max

learningswedish.se's very first course covers the ABCs and their pronounciations.

Not sure if you have to log in to see this one, but here's the specific page.

Thank you, I was hoping to stick to one website, but this is certainly useful!
