Proficient enough to have a conversation with a Swedish workmate, but I practised the vocabulary daily on Memrise and made sure I got some listening practice while doing the course.

I can highly recommend the Memrise 'DuoLingo Swedish' course. It covers all the vocabulary you'll find here, as well as almost 1,000 extra common words and expressions.

After you finish the course, it's a good idea to find a speaking partner and to get regular listening practice- an effective method is to double up on reading and listening by watching Swedish movies with Swedish subtitles.

I could hold up conversations, but learned so much more outside of Duolingo.

I could have some conversations in Swedish but it took me way more extra work outside of duolingo to reach a level where I can pretty much read books in Swedish and have conversations without much effort too. Going to Sweden and immersing myself here helps a lot.

I could read lots of websites and things, with the occasional unknown word. However it was quite a shock to me when I heard some people SPEAKING Swedish. It was quite fast. So maybe I should enable the listening section. Also, I didn't feel comfortable SPEAKING Swedish, because I didn't get the accent. Time to start enabling the speaking section, too! :)
