Swedish or Turkish


This is directed to those with English as their first language and who learnt or are learning Swedish or Turkish.

I'd like to know what difficulties you faced, while trying to learn Turkish or Swedish, particularly in terms of grammar, listening/reading and adding to your vocabulary.

I want to learn them but don't have the resources to learn both. English is my first language. I have a background in Malay-Indonesian, Spanish and French.
