English for Swedes


I enjoy listening to accents, especially those with a lilting melodic characteristic. The Welsh accent is probably my favorite with the Indian and Swedish accent close behind in this category. Malaysians’ do not speak English with an accent as much as speak a pariah mix of English and Malay which we lovingly call Manglish. However, that is a topic for a different post.

Today, I’d like to share with you this wonderful clip from the British comedy duo of “The Two Ronnies” which illustrates how easy it is to speak English with a Swedish accent or otherwise known as “Lessons in Conversational English for Swedes”. Before we proceed further, evalinn and other Swedish readers, please forgive the bad squirrel for posting this video and to the rest of you, enjoy.
