Swedish in South Carolina

Here's a random post hoping to find Swedish learners or speakers in the South again. I live near Myrtle Beach SC, and interested in meeting up with others. I have met a few with Swedish ancestry, but no one with the desire to learn the language.

I'm repeating this call out, because in traffic, someone saw my Swedish emblem on my motorcycle (a white Honda Pacific Coast) and said a few Swedish words just as the light changed. (We were in opposite turn lanes, and I'm hoping they were not just a passing tourist.)

I started learning Swedish a couple of years ago, but haven't really touched it since, because I am also learning a language which is more prevalent in my life right now. I live in south Texas, and I started learning Swedish (and plan to continue learning it in 1 year) because my family has a fair amount of Swedish ancestry.

Thanks for the reply. I don't think there is any way to talk on duolingo. With my name, it's probably easy for you to find me on facebook. We're planning another trip to Sweden in late April, as I have both family and former exchange students in i Sverige.

Dear "DUOLINGANER learning swedish"! I have a Problem: They say "dom", but write it "De", in english "They". The same problem with "sköld", wich is spoken "skjöld".

Not sure why you posted this here, unless you live in South Carolina? But, we all have to figure those things out. English has its own weird pronunciations. Consider though and rough. I think I've seen an explanation of how the spelling changed for ''de'' though I'm just used to it now...
