Seeing as skolan is in the definite form here, but not translated to the school, how would one translate I ran to the school? It isn't as common a sentence, but I'm not sure how to make the distinction when the definite-ness does not "line up" between the two languages!

Can you say "towards" in this case?

No, that would be Jag sprang mot skolan.

Swedish is very exact, so yes, you would say "mot"

"Skolan" sounds like "skovlan" or "skoblan". Is that the correct pronunciation?
