Tiny cards, future perfect

Has anyone noticed that the Duo tiny cards lesson on the future perfect in Swedish is actually the present perfect?

Is it the same for the actual lesson, or did they just add the wrong cards to Tinycards?

The Duo lesson is correct. It's just that the tiny cards don't correspond to it.

You probably know this, but just to be clear, I need to add that the course has no affiliation with the Tinycards feature. So I'm afraid I have no say over that.

There are official Duolingo decks though, not just something some random person cooked up. Are you saying that the official Duolingo decks actually aren't officially run by Duolingo?

It's quite possible that Duolingo, as in the company, has official decks. It is not managed by any of the volunteers from the Swedish course, though. I haven't even tried Tinydecks myself.

It's pretty obvious, devalanteriel, that the tiny cards, which have quite a few errors, were not done by the Swedish volunteers who have put a lot of thought into their excellent work. My post was means as a heads up to students, not as a comment to the mods.

I understand. Thank you. I'm posting mostly for the benefit of others reading this. :)

Yeah, I don't know who manages them but as far as I'm aware they are connected and even give exp when used (though I never tried that as I always make my own decks). Perhaps this could be posted in troubleshooting forum and Duolingo staff will see it?

It's worth trying at least. :)
