Wow, have you completed the Romanian tree? You might be the first person I've seen to do that haha

June 1, 2017

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

I have completed it. I am surely not the only one, but it is definitely one of the languages that hasn't been completed that much. It is in beta, though, so that's to be expected!

It's a lovely language and I advise anyone who considers it to try it out :)

June 1, 2017

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

Once I get to a suitable point in the others I'll start it out. I did the basics for a bit but I think I did a clean up of all the languages I wasn't using much, but I may give it a go soon.

I am just starting out on Norwegian, which I see is your main course. Hopefully I can finish that tree as well :)

June 1, 2017

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

I've been going at it a while, it's a long tree but it's a great language too so hopefully I'll complete it. Good luck! After that you should try the other Nordic languages, because they'll be really easy since they're mutually intelligible.

How do you say, well done, in Bokmal?

Spiders are actually arachnids, not insects...

June 1, 2017

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

Oh yeah, you're right. I forgot about that. I'll change it haha.

Well done is 'bra gjort' which I see now does literally mean 'well done'.

June 1, 2017

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

I'm not entirely sure, you could probably say 'Det er godt!' (that is good), but I haven't come across 'well done' yet. I'll find out!

Bien Hecho, pero no olvida la "s" en paraguaS.

June 2, 2017

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

¿Por qué "los paraguas" tienen ser un plural? Disculpe mí, mi español es malo...

June 2, 2017

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

Tu espa(n)ol is getting better every day.

La palabra, "paragua" no existe en espa(n)ol. I think of it like the word pants/pantalones.

The common insect I chose also ends with an, s, even when singular. Saltamontes(grasshopper/hilljumper)
