Most important question to learn before visiting Sweden! :)

I learnt in the former lesson "speak slowly"! I already forgot how was that but anyways...

Should I say "badrum" to mean toilet like it's done in english?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Zmrzlina

That will be perfectly fine. You can ask either of that an var är toaletten?.

Which is more common in this question: badrummet or toaletten?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Zmrzlina

I don't know. I actually use the distinction badrum/toalett but that might be just me. Both are perfectly normal and common.

Well, in American English. In British English a bathroom has to have a bath in it.

Why are there two m's in badrummet if the indefinite form, badrum, only has one?

Is there an extra syllable in the TTS on this one? It sounds almost like "Varje badrummet"... or are my ears playing tricks on me?!
