The thing that has helped me the most is learning the different sounds of the swedish alphabet. Many of the sounds of a foreign language do not exist in our own, so it's necessary to distinguish them :) Learn that alphabet! I promise it works!

Regarding the pronunciation of vowels and the concept of vowel and consonant length, there are 3 videos in this thread that could be helpful: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/6502614

The main sound not found in English is the sj-sound. The others have close approximates that show up in common words (though which words exactly may depend on your dialect).
