Swenglish by old people

This will, most likely, become a recurring theme in this blog. The reason is that one of the courses this year is in English, because we have foreign students visiting. In a way, this is good, because being able to learn in English is a good skill to have on your resume. The catch is that our teachers are all middle-aged or older and not as used to English as the younger generations. So far I’ve just had one lecture in English, and I’ve tried to decipher the following things:

“Let me know if you have any jews on your paper”

“To the foreign students, you will have a different practice. I will get you a practice without so much language skills and more woooo waaah wouoo”

“In this course, you will have to consider medical things as well as… meeleu” (The teacher didn’t know the English word for “environment” and decided to just pronounce the Swedish word with an English dialect instead, so it didn’t make sense to anyone).
