I am not Swedish but what i understood is : Ett , En in first means A , when you put them at the end they make "The" Meaning but you should remember them ett and en don't mix it with all words like "Äpple" doesn't take "en". only "ett" ett Äpple = An Apple. Or Äpplet = The apple
Does anyone find the recording used for "djur" throughout the Swedish course to be really weird sounding? When I look up the pronunciation elsewhere, it sounds very different. I've heard it elsewhere pronounced "jur" or closer to "yur", but here, it almost sounds multisyllabic, like "yuduruh". Is that a specific regional accent, or is it just a bad recording?
I wrote "beast" and got it wrong. I know a little Swedish from travel over the years and "djur" feels to me like "mammal", usually four-legged. So I translated as "beast". As in "beasts of the forest." In English, a wasp is an animal, but I can't imagine the a wasp is et djur på svensa?
