A British "your", I assume?
EDIT: Nevermind. I thought you were saying "jag" is pronounced sort of like "your".
Not only in dialects, actually. It's standard spoken Swedish to drop the 'g'. To natives it sounds archaic or forced if you pronounce it the way it's written. The pronunciation of 'jag' and 'ja' ('yes') are the same :)
Its a challenge for me to pronounce all the 't's in this sentence like the audio does.
so jag sounds yah or yaw or yo? im korean and i think it sounds like mostly yah and somethimes yag(in eng sounds)
It's a long A-sound rather than an O-sound, but the Swedish long A is different from what's common in English, German, Italian or other comparisons. The A-sound in English "far" or "bar" is about it.
Definitely the hardest sentence so far. The rhythmic stress is difficult for me to get down fluently.
I'm not sure if it is actually ''I eat'', because i still think it's ''I ate''
So are en and ett like masculine and feminine type of words similar to romance languages?
Yes, it's a bit like that... 'en' words are called common gender (Swe: 'en-ord' or 'utrum' or 'reale'), and 'ett' words are neutral gender (Swe: 'ett-ord' or 'neutrum'). The common gender is a fusion of once existing masculine and feminine genders, a simplification that took place in the late middle ages (the three gender system remain in a couple of very special dialects with few speakers, though). 75-80% of all nouns are in the common gender but unfortunately there are not a lot of rules out there to make it easier to decide if a word is an en-ord or ett-ord...
The audio makes it sound like "äpple" has the emphasis on the last syllable. Is that right? Like "eh puh LEH"?
Well, for learners of the Swedish language it indeed does sound as if the stress was on the last syllable. So far the same goes for "kvinna" and "flicka".
The reason for this is the so-called accent 2 (at least in German it's called like this), which is also existent in Norwegian (only in part?).
I guess it depends on how you are using Duolingo. The web version for standard computers has an extra button for slow audio. The Android and iOS versions may not have this.
More or less, but there is no rule to it and it has to be learned with every noun.
Is it like in French, in which we can use the infinitive verbs to mean a continuous situation?
Just like "Je mange" - I eat/I am eating.
I think you mean the present tense rather than the infinitive (which is manger), but the answer is yes. Swedish doesn't differ between present simple and present continuous the way English does.
I find it spoken very fast and hard to get the pronunciation right im only starting to learn the language
French has some sounds not corresponding the way they spell, if Swedish has something difficult of, is it the way it is spoken fast?
Can "Jag äter ett äpple" mean both "I eat an apple" and "I am eating an apple"?
Yes. For example:
"I eat an apple every day" = "Jag äter ett äpple varje dag".
"I'm eating an apple right now" = "Jag äter ett äpple just nu"
In general jag sounds like yah or yaw, but here, preceding är it sounds more like the Norwegian jeg, or something like yai. Is this right?
