Pronounciation of två OR two

Postby Rochelle » 2017-09-15, 3:02

What is the correct pronounciation of två ?

T - where is the tongue placed?
V - just like American v?
å - long or short? aw? o? oo?

And putting the three above together?

I think I have the tip of the tongue against the lower teeth and press another part of the tongue against the alveolar (behind the upper teeth).

Probably, I guess. Upper teeth against lower lip.

Long vowel, similar to English "or" without the r, but more rounded.
