Have anyone tried this?

Have any of you guys tried to learn Danish after learning Swedish? Can you tell us your experience?

It would be great if we were able to learn one language from the other, so in your case Danish from Swedish. That way it would improve your Swedish, too.

It's such a shame we only have Swedish from English.

Can’t you also do English FROM Swedish to continue improving your new Swedish skills and extend your use of Duolingo ?

No, as I already said: we only have Swedish from English. NO English from Swedish, or any other language from Swedish. That's the problem!

I've found it makes Danish easier in some parts and harder in others, very similar to most cases of learning a related language. The large overlap in grammar and vocabulary makes those, much easier to learn, but at the same time it's harder to remember those cases where they don't match. An additional difficulty (for me, at least) is Danish spelling. It's not nearly as regular as Swedish and in that point, already knowing Swedish is no help. Nevertheless, if you have already developed a feeling for a language, learning a closely related one will always get you speaking faster.

Nope. I already know Swedish and can tell you that Danish is very similar (well, the Danish they speak in parts close to Sweden anyway), so I can imagine that it would make things easier if you wanna learn Danish afterwards.

Hopefully you'll get an answer from someone that actually have the experience and can answer your question, hehe.
