More funny Swedish words

I went back to Folkuniversitet last night to learn Swedish. I was rather happy as they moved me to a more advanced class. Its hard to gauge ones grasp of a language when you speak with natives all day so this was reassuring.

Carrying on with the idea of funny Swedish words I learnt a cracker last night.

‘Snabbel A’, this is translated into elephants trunk a…do you know what that is?


Yes the good old at sign. Vad roligt!

Who said learning Swedish wasnt fun!
