I don't really need any lingots, I just think this is fun.

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


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 :)


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 :)


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.


Thank you for your answers.

How do you say, well done, in Bokmal?

Spiders are actually arachnids, not insects...


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'.


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!
