    She doesn't actually sound English, if that's what you mean, but obviously she has learned English well, perhaps from a native speaker.

    I wouldn't know. I have better things to do than be lectured by a child.

    But English is widely spoken in all the Scandinavian countries, and children learn it thoroughly at school.

    She probably learned her English from an instructor with that accent.

    Common for educated West Europeans to speak good English. They learn from an early age at school.

  • In Swedish schools, they teach English rather than American.
