Äntligen är det färdigt :D

Ja, precis vad du tänker! Äntligen har jag avslutat mitt svenska träd! Det tog mig sju långa månader för att uppnå den här stor handlingen, men det är verkligen värt ansträngningen. Såklart, skulle det inte vara möjligt utan de som hjälpte mig genom dessa månader och de som gjorde kursen vad det är i dag. Jag skulle alltså vilja tacka dem, särskilt moderatorerna. Jag är ju inte flytande på svenska än, men utan trädet kunde jag inte skriva den här texten, för att inte tala om att lära känna en helt nytt värld (den svenska kulturen och språk i allmänhet). Nu ska jag förtsätta mina svenskastudier utanför Duolingo, med böcker och förhoppningsvis att prata med riktiga människor. Men jag är inte färdig med trädet, eftersom det är inte helt gyllene än! Hur som helst, nästa utmaning är Deutsch ;D

Yes, exactly what you're thinking! I have finally finished my Swedish tree! It took me seven long months to accomplish this great deed, but it is really worth the effort. Of course, it wouldn't be possible without those who helped me throughout these months and those who made the course what it is today. Therefore I'd like to thank them, especially the moderators. Obviously I'm not fluent in Swedish yet, but if it wasn't for the tree, I wouldn't be able to write this text, let alone get to know a whole new world (the Swedish culture and languages in general). Now I will continue my studies outside Duolingo, with books and hopefully real conversations. But I'm not done yet with the tree, as it is still not entirely golden! Anyways, the next challenge is Deutsch ;D

Really impressive! You learned quite a lot and seem to be on your way to become fluent soon. Good luck for that. :)

Grattis! Did you know any Swedish before starting the Duolingo tree? If Duolingo taught you to type that entire paragraph, I'm really impressed. Lycka till på tyska!

No, I started from zero. Of course, I still need to use the dictionary sometimes, but I'd say the writing and reading skills that Duolingo provides are very good. When it comes to other skills, I can engage in a casual conversation about normal topics and understand enough, but I'm a bit far from speaking in a very spontaneous way. Tack så mycket :)

Wow. I started Swedish from zero too but I'm finding it hard to stay motivated, any tips?

The best way I found to stay motivated is to set a goal and go for it, instead of just doing the tree. For example, my goal was (still is) to be able to read a Swedish book I've bought, and the tree would give me part of the vocabulary for it. By the middle of the tree, I felt just like you, and speaking Swedish with real people gave me the will to continue again. That might help you as well, if possible.

The main thing why it can get boring is too much doing the same at once. Don´t do too much, don´t overdo. Take your own speed and do it your way. If you get tired of learning from duolingo, learn from other sources, too.

Put words everywhere (e.g. a sticker saying "kniv" on a knive). Like that you see it everywhere. If you can, put the words into art. Draw a cat and put katt under it, if you can´t remember good (just an example :) ). Maybe make drawings with words which explain themselves, e.g. the word for bridge in form of a bridge, etc.

Google other ways or read books about "motivation" in general from your local library. Play minecraft in swedish.

I have friends in Sweden and we are also friends on facebook. I changed in facebook settings also my language to Swedish. So it helps also and it is fun. You don't even know you are learning on the way...

And you should find your own motivation. It is difficult if there is not any. Why did you choose to start learning Swedish? There has got to be a reason.

you never used , other resources , besides duolingo?

Mostly dictionaries, I'd say. Sometimes I would read and hear news in Sverigeradio, but I did it only a few times. I also read about 5 pages of a book in Swedish that I have, and spoke Swedish 3 times (once in a real conversation), but I'd say Duo taught me the most. This is not my first time studying a foreign language, though.

just for curiosity , what is this book , that you read 5 pages.

The Swedish version of "The Hunger Games", called "Hungerspelen". I chose this one because I had previously read in my native language, so that I'd be familiarized with the plot at least.

is the swedish translation , too different , or , not different , at all , from jogos vorazes?

December 31, 2015

Well, I'd say there is no quite big difference. The order that stuff happen is exactly the same. It has a different feeling, though. I see it in Swedish words, for example "ju", that either take away meanings we have in Portuguese or make things more meaningful in a Swedish way.

Hej!

Trevligt att du har slutat kursen, ta det här lingot snälla! Men det faktist börjar bara :) nu är det dags att läsa böcker och tidningar, titta tv eller lyssna på radion (t.e. TuneIn appen är väldigt bra!). Hoppas att Duolingo tilläger del II snart... kan bara vanta. Lycka till!

Lyckligtvis är det bara början! Nu har jag tillgång till ett nytt språk i livet, vilket gör mig mycket glad. Faktiskt har jag redan börjat läsa och lyssna på radion (förresten, tack för råd om TuneIn, jag letade efter just bra resurser). Tack så mycket :D

Jag läser vad ni skriver på svensk. Jag är mycket imponerad, jag hoppas det en dag jag kan striver och prata så bra som du. Men det är min forsta ny sprak, och jag här flera svåringheter.

Tack så mycket! Och oroa dig inte, det är helt naturligt att ha svårigheter med första utlädskt språk som du har någonsin pluggat. Du kommer ju att få kläm på svenska på ingen tid alls om du öva, och har den rätta motivationen.
