Friends for motivation?
I was wondering if anyone learning Swedish from English would like to be friends on the app? I have a friend on there already and find it motivating to watch others learn (must be the competitive streak in me :P).
Add me if you like Siobhan88489 :)
I started the Swedish last week to improve my english (I'm French) and learn new things. I'll be glad to share and compete with you in order to give us both motivation to work harder.
Let me know ! (hope my english is good enough)
Hej! Sounds good to me :) followed you. Should you need any English help, please feel free to ask!
Hej if anyone else wants to add me feel free to do it.
Hallå Siobhan88489. I'll add you, I have no friends on duolingo yet. This has been my first week on duolingo, and these are my first week's results:
I saw from the comments that you are moving to Sweden soon, I am also. I wish you good luck!
I started learning back in May, yes it has taken me a while but I hopefully will get there. At first I was put off by the reaction people gave me when I said I was learning it left it for a while. Now I'm trying to be as active as I can in between work and life in general :-). Feel free to add me Lotte 1191
Thanks Lotte! I wouldn't be put off by other people and their opinion, learning a new language is always beneficial and fun, to boot!
Definitely it is fun! I looked into using Rosetta Stone but I think I'm getting better results from Duolingo and its completely free! I need to knuckle down and get it done :-) and now I've found like minded people which makes me feel a lot better :-D
I used Babbel, and just forgot to re-instate my membership but I really did find it good and I learned very quickly however Duolingo is free and that just gave it the extra heads up :-P Hope you're doing well! x
I just moved to Sweden three weeks ago so here I am trying to blend in with the locals by learning me some Svenska! I'll add you :D
Thanks Elly! How are you finding it, where did you move from? I'm visiting every other week at the minute as my partner works and lives out there in Göteborg! :)
Oh I love it here, I moved to Norrköping from South-West England, near Bristol. It's been so great since I've moved here! I'm working as an Au-Pair for a year and the city is just beautiful. Where are you from? I'd love to visit Göteborg one day, looks like an awesome place.
Ah that sounds lovely! I'm studying psychology with the intention to move after there-after, so very excited! I'm from 'oop North, Yorkshire! I'll be sad to leave but completely hooked on Sweden since I've been spending so much time there. :)
Aww a fellow brit!! And yes I completely understand how you feel, there's just something about Sweden that makes me love it here, waiting for the cold dark winter to test my spirit, but i've got a feeling i'll be just fine ;) Are you planning to move here then?
Hi, I am currently mostly refreshing my Spanish and French, but want to learn Swedish too. Always wanted to visit Sweden and aim to do it next year with my sister. So want to be able to speak the language a bit. Would like to befriend some of you guys too to keep my motivation up :)
Added you! Learning Swedish on my phone is my way of staying focused while bicycling at the gym. So now I'll be more motivated for learning Swedish and keeping fit! :)
Hey Siobhan, My partner has moved back to Sweden and we are currently doing the commute to and fro so I have to get my act together and finally learn some Swedish. None of my friends speak/want to learn Swedish and it would be great to see how others are getting along :-) Good luck!
Hey Philipap.. A real culture shock Sweden was for me at first, especially being from Yorkshire in England where people are notoriously friendly! The language for me hasn't been too difficult so far as I am familiar with some German, it seems Spanish is most popular on here at the minute! Hope you get on grand, best of luck :) x
Heya! I'm Pole, but living in South Yorkshire currently. When I've visited SE forthe first time, I've just fell in love with the place. Calm, extraordinary harmony...forests, lonely strolling and absorbing that atmosphere of perfect coexistence between people and mother nature...I just found peace of mind there. I really miss such nature here, in the UK...it's to urbanized for me, ppl are so busy, and everyone is buying, buying...And there everyone seems so relaxed! I've been to central part of Sweden, in dalarna region, and I just felt like at home. Snow, wooden houses, dozens of old bikes (unchained, because inhabitants don't scare sb else can steal it!), friendly people (yeah, people were extremely polite! I've heard Swedes, or Scandi people are cold, but I get completely different impression...or maybe it is because I'm from Poland, where People are even colder to each other?). Anyway, I cross my fingers for you and your plans, and wish you all the best! U can make it, and... hope I'll too!:)
