Help. c:

I just levelled up to 10 in Swedish! The words are getting quite hard to remember, anyone got any ideas that could help me remember all the words I learn? Thanks!

Hmm... you should write notes and repass and restudy the words you don't understand. I also recommend to memorize at least 5 words a day. At this pace, you will be able to learn much of the language soon. I am studying Vietnamese and its very difficult, I mean, SUPER difficult, but I am taking notes and restudying and it isn't that hard. :D Good luck in your Swedish studies! Hope you learn Swedish soon! ☺ Oh, and I hope you enjoyed Halloween!

Tbh I had the same issue at some point and got discouraged and kinda stopped using Duolingo... You just have to get exposed to it and get used to them. I just listed to Swedish music and absorb it that way and it works really well for me to learn new words like that, and it also solidifies all the 1000 words I learned with Duo.

I'd recommend reading a lot, or listening to lots of music, or do something other than Duo that you'll see the words repeatedly. Don't rush it, just read or listen casually for months, and it should solidify everything you've learned.

I find I don't really have to think about grammar anymore, I just know the right way to put stuff together because of what I've heard in music. So it should just build your skills altogether, even though it could be slow starting out. Just my opinion tho...

Hi, could you please recommend some Swedish music? I have only been listening to a couple of artists I found that I particularly like but I could use some more variety... I am not picky really about genre at this point...

I have a playlist I've been working on 2 years, lots of genera of music... Mostly pop, reggae, and the mainstream Swedish singers...

Newer stuff is at the bottom of the list... Since there's a lot I'd recommend listening to one song from every artist and if you like their voice then listen to the rest, just to save time.

Also, from the recommended videos, you'll find more artists / popular songs that aren't in my playlist probably.

I bumped into the same issue with Swedish when I was doing it, but I think that after having learned German for a year and a half consecutively, I've gotten pretty good at remembering vocabulary. So I guess what I'm trying to say is, you will get better with time, it will become easier, but for now, you have to stick with it and grind it out. If you can learn 5 new words a day, great. Soon it will be 6, then 10, then 20.
