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".
Does the K sounds like "SH"?
I got this wrong for no reason
