This delicious pastry is commonly known as “dammsugare” in Swedish (=vacuum cleaner) referring to the look of old vacuum cleaners. The official name is Punch-roll. It’s covered with marzipan, the interior made of yesterdays crushed cookies and cakes (as if there would be leftovers…) butter, cacao and … flavored with punch liqueur. The “dammsugare” is usually made of green marzipan but I found a pink one with a #botanical pattern.

Welcome to the December challenge! Here is a list of #decemberverb; one verb for each day of the month of December. Your challenge is to learn the verb by somehow illustrating (in a broader sense), acting or demonstrating its meaning. This will help your brain to acquire the new word and to remember it.
This is meant as a challenge for you personally; trying another angle of learning. If you want to please feel free to share some results via e-mail, website or social media, using #decemberverb.
Learning a language should be fun. Today I played a game of I spy Swedish nouns in a Skype class with two children. The task was to look around in the respective room for nouns starting with the letter that ended the previous word spotted. This is the chain or words we came up with; sometimes with a little help in order to acquire or figure out “new” words. I am adding the article en/ett for your convenience.
Didn’t they do great?! I challenge you to continue the chain in the comments … 🙂
Those Swedish vowels and consonants … They can be hard to nail on your own unless you’ve studied phonetics and know exactly what palatal alveolar fricative or labio dental mean. On Weebly you can practice on your own with the help of informative videos. You can also record your own speech/sounds to compare.
Watch the video via the link below and/or click the vowel of your choice. In the drop down menu to the right you find more choices.
