Mjölk in Swedish has the ö sound that is special for the Swedish language. You have to learn to say ö like a Sweed would. First ...ölk sounds a little like elk, but you have to form the mouth more like an o instead of e. Then you must do a fast air sound but it doesn't sound like o at al. Then you have to combine the rest mjö...mjöl...mjölk.
this is indeed a very typical svensk sentence. In my south German company there is ond guy (in his 50s) having a glass of milk with his lunch (of 2000+). During lunch(time) in Sweden you see these guys everywhere. If you have been away some years oi what ever this is so funny each time I see it. More grown up men have milk to their lunch in S than dittos having a beer at thd samd time in Germany ;-)
Well, since they're different letters, what you need is training - basically keep exercising until you can reliably hear the difference.
To help with that, I would suggest looking up videos on Swedish pronunciation. I believe Academia Cervena (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUb87YTKOTgnGcAM4toC-6A) covers vowels, for instance. Good luck! :)
