Singer Zara Larsson teaches Vanity Fair some Swedish slang in this educational interview.

In it, Zara runs us through some of the weird and funny phrases that you might hear in Sweden. They range from rude, to quirky, to downright bizarre. She first tells us what they are in Swedish, then fills us in on their English translation. Some of the phrases she teaches us are “Keff”, which means rubbish or bad and “Flummig” which means weird. Our favourite one has to be “Snuskhummer” which means a gross old man. Its literal translation is a “nasty lobster”.
