Swedish Lesson #3 - a very useful phrase

Yes, that is a most useful phrase, though my husband would probably disagree.

Ok Alice, so do you want my next lesson to be how you would tell your husband off when he is waaaaaayyyyyyy wrong? I think that is also a very useful thing to know. Just give me a couple of days to think of the best way of phrasing that.

Malin, I love you! Someday, I would like to come to Sweden and say, "Var ligger pärlaffären?" My Google Translate did not give me that phrase. See, what would I do without you?! I would be beadless in Sweden. That would be a tragedy! Although, like Alice, my husband would be fine if I didn't find another bead shop!!
p.s. I like that you put the spelling on the screen.

Hilary, my godness, I just had to check what google translate said. Really, I'll have to get back on that. Basically I could just say: DO NOT TRUST GOOGLE TRANSLATE. Their suggestion doesn't make any sense at all. It goes something like: "was the grain shop".

Malin, I love these lessons so much!! I just watched you twice in a row and practiced my open and closed a's. Quite close to German pronunciation with their umlaut. Now, what I want to know is how to pronounce an a with a wee circle over the top! I love the spellings on the video as well - it helps so much to see it written down. Thanks! One day helen and I will come to Sweden and we'll all go to the paerlaffaeren together (dunno how to type umlauts!).
