2nd Tree Completed - Danish Tree

I have completed my 2nd Tree! Which is Danish! French was my first, but it was easy because I speak French! Danish was alot harder! But I have finally finished! This was just telling you what this discussion was about, and now for my little speech!

Today is a very emotional day for me. I have just completed a life goal of mine, to learn Danish. Which will add on to another goal, to become a good polyglot. I don't know how to feel. This has been so fun, so I am a bit sad that it's over. But now, I am going to move on to focus more deeply on German and Spanish. This has been a great adventure! This is my 2nd Complete Tree! I am so happy right now!

Tak til ser denne besked! Jeg er meget glad i dag!

Congratulations! And it's my language you've learned? That's awesome! I totally understand how it must feel, even though as you probably can see, I haven't finished one myself :)

do you speak now Danish very well ?

June 2, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ashton_M_02

Ja! Jeg snakker dansk meget god!

Not to be rude, but it's very important that you remember to put the ending on the adjective. Sometimes it's necessary to put a t on the adjective (depending on the noun). In this case the sentence is: "Ja, jeg snakker dansk meget godt" I'm only telling you, because it's something that Danish people will notice (it sounds really weird for us) :p

I thought that it was "godt", but just incase I was wrong, I didn't want to put it! :P

Hi Ashton and how many lessons you was studying per day (your daily goal)

June 3, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ashton_M_02

I did around 3 hours a day, and I aimed for atleast 200 XP a Day! I was re-doing alot of lessons, but i'd say my average was 20 Lessons a day!

Congrats! How many time it took for you to finish Danish tree? I'm on my start and that's not so easy. Thank you :)

June 2, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ashton_M_02

I started around January 22nd, and did around 3 Hours a day, but keep in mind, I've been doing alot more than just Danish, plus I re-did some lessons I forgot. I believe in you! :)

Nej problem!

June 4, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Vingernagel

I really don't hope you're gonna kill me for correcting you, but I just felt like I wanted to mention this one too. "No" in English doesn't only mean "nej". In this case the sentence is called "intet problem", which is translated directly to "no problem".

June 4, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ashton_M_02

I won't kill you. I appreciate your help! I don't remember ever hearing the word "intet" throughout the Danish Tree though, so I would have mucked that up either way! ;-)

June 4, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Vingernagel

It's just that some people they get easily offended, if you correct them. I was just making sure, that you weren't one of those. So there's two ways of saying "no" in Danish: "ingen" or "intet". I feel like "ingen" is more used for plural nouns, but there's probably an example somewhere in the world, where you can use it with singular nouns. Der var ingen mennesker på gaden (there was no people on the street) Der var intet at gøre (There was nothing to do) Intet is used for "et" nouns. (hus, liv, menneske) That was not really an advanced explanation, but if you need any help, you can always ask me :)

Ohhhh that's a lot of learning every day so you spend all your day learning languages . How old are you ?

June 4, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ashton_M_02

I am 14. On school days, I could say I spend half my day learning languages, and on weekends, I could say I spend around a quarter of my day learning languages! It's something I truly have a passion for! :)

Me I learn every day 2 lessons and I practice a weak skill so is this good for me to learn the language ?

June 4, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ashton_M_02

Practicing weak skills helps alot, but don't let it slow you down too much! As much as it is good to practice those weak skills, try and progress at the same time! Try to complete an average of 1 or 2 skills today, or 1 very long skill! B)
