    A funny short video about scandinavian languages

    An norwegian friend of mine made me watch this video ( he knows I'm learning finnish, and that makes him laugh). Sure you too will find it funny.

    Good fun.
    Australia has been flooded with Scandinavian TV thrillers and crime over the past few years.
    But they started with Danish programs for several years, so my ear is far better attuned to it, while Swedish sounds less guttural, but unusual.
    The Bridge was great for comparisons.
    Danes said something that sounded like "gut" or "good" - just like the English, while Swedish used "bror" just like the Scots. (Apologies for spelling.)

    Good luck with learning Finnish!
