Is The Speaker Correct? Pronunciation? [Question for Fluent Ppls]
So from my experience with the Dutch course, the speaker isn't always right. When I listened to an actual Dutch person speaking, I couldn't understand them and had to retrain my listening and pronunciation.
I check Forvo for literally every new word, play it over and over and try to say it like the speaker. I'd like to make sure I have the correct accent as I proceed with the course.
Can a fluent Swedish person confirm that the speaker is correct in pronunciation?
I seem to have great distrust issues with words like djur, sked, varg, färg... I guess the "hyw" sound and the weird v sound with djur and the y sound with varg/färg... It's going to make me super super super self conscious when speaking lol.
There are lots of crazy pronunciations in the Swedish course too and as far as I understand the moderators are looking for a new TTS to replace the current one.
I have gone through most lessons and whenever I've found an incorrect pronunciation I have added a link to forvo in the "Discuss sentence" section.
PS. Whenever a "g" comes after "r" or "l" it's pronounced like a Swedish "j" (which is "y" to you I suppose), so you are right about varg and färg and the same holds for älg and helg.
