Sounding Swedish

by Andrew Stein

Hej.

My Swedish vocabulary is a bit limited. If trying to use some of my Swedish in a sentence, it might come out something like while I was sitting in my poang under the kallt and next to my expedit, which was holding my drink, I began to feel a bit tired and was thinking when it would be time for me to lounge on the karlstad or lay on the ektorp. Now, if I said that while standing in an IKEA, people wouldn’t think twice and that sentence might actually make sense.
