Yes, but using "karl" is a bit more rough if you will. It would actually be used as a bit of a more masculine form of "man". You would say something like "Han är en riktig karl" and it would be a bit like "he is a real man's man". Some might even say it's a little bit primitive, it is not something you would expect to hear from everyday people, especially the younger generation.
I just wonder why there aren't tips popping up in Swedish like there is in German? It made a huge difference for me,i just flied right through German,even though Swedish seems much easier for me.
What would be most helpful is a little help with -en and -ett words and possibly explanation of how to pronounce Swedish vowels mainly,because when you get a task to write what is said it's often troublesome.
And then there's k turning into sh sound which i still don't understand how it works,g sometimes being pronounced like j,and y can be an u or i,i have no idea. -Kyrkan is read like shurkan,i don't understand why -Genom is read like jenom,so when do i say g and when do i say j ? I'm probably forgetting something but these are concers enough
What helped me was this:
They explain how it's used in different ways
