To my ears, it almost sounds like the speaker is saying a mix of an 'a' and 'e' sound. Am I hearing this correctly?
You're right. But if I remember well, in Sweden it sounds like an almost pure "e".
It's so strange to see the words I hear all the time! I watch Swedish movies often and decided to stop relying on the closed captioning!
I feel that is very easy but ... my english is not very good but i like this langouge and swedish too
The 'j' at the end sounds like an 'i' close to a spanish 'y'... ¿should it be like that? Like french 'ille' for example...
Yes, it's basically the same support sound that many of the soft Russian consonants have - е, ё, ю, я, й - all of them use the standard /j/, as does the Swedish j.
I wrote "No" and it counted it false because I haven't added the exclamation mark...
It's an annoying bug that happens now and then. Not much we can do about it, I'm afraid. At least it's an easy one to get around. :)
I had a type-o and wrote "Neu", and it marked it as correct! Is it an error or is Neu a valid word?
