Is this actually pronounced like "SHOO-len"?
Yes so is it: skolen is equals to; shool en. Best regards to all.
I've learned that the Article could be used as if it were a possessive pronoun, I tried “the woman loves her skirt” and it killed me a heart
In case of "her skirt" it should have been "Kvinnan älskar sin kjol".
Is there a rule for silent K? It sounds like there's a K in kniv and kvinnan, but not kjolen. Thanks.
The K isn't silent as such, it's just that the rare KJ spelling makes a soft K-sound as the one you'd find in "kött" and "kyrka" as well.
I got this wrong for no reason
Does the K sounds like "SH"?
I was taught that älska is only used when referring to loving people, not objects.
