That will probably be the reason not to have that course. Swedes are the best English speakers in the world (as a second language). The best competitioner are the Dutch. Some years Swedes are first on the list and the Dutch are second, and other years it's the opposite.

Yes, there's simply too little demand for it. There's actually a second reason as well - there is no Swedish interface to Duolingo, and no plans to make one.

On the other hand, an English course for Dutch speakers does exist. However, the number of Swedish speakers is fewer than that of Dutch speakers so maybe it's also the reason. Even though Swedes are good in English, there could be courses in other languages from Swedish. They can learn from English but it's not the same. I would like for example German or Russian from Swedish. However, I don't expect it to ever happen. Even in my native language (Polish), which has much more native speakers, Duolingo offers only English.

I would love to have an English for Swedish course. In fact, I plan on applying to contribute if it still doesn't exist by the time I finish my Swedish tree (very likely).
