Hej alla! Having recently taken on some new roles in the Duolingo community, I figured that I should re-introduce myself to all of the users in the forums. My name is Super-Svensk, and I have been active on Duolingo for a little over five years. Some of you may know me from the Swedish Word of the Week posts that I upload every Monday. Last month, I became a Forum Moderator and Course Contributor for the Swedish for English speakers course, and I am looking forward to continuing to answer your questions in the forums, continuing maintenance on the existing course, and hopefully (hopefully, no promises yet!) beginning work on a new version of the course sometime in the near-to-distant future. I have experience teaching Swedish both formally and as an informal tutor, and I am hoping to bring this experience to the contributor team as much as possible. Aside from Swedish and English, I am fluent in French and proficient in German, Dutch, Norwegian, and Portuguese. Outside of Duolingo, I enjoy playing piano and clarinet, as well as composing music! Feel free to reach out with any feedback on the course or any questions!
Thanks A LOT for all the time and effort you put into helping others, including me ^^ it really means a lot ♥ and I really enjoy Swedish word of the week, it's really funny seeing so many new and sometimes strange words xD
Hallo! I am actively studying Swedish on a daily basis. What things do you think you would be able to add to the course? I hope something like stories or idioms and sayings. I think you've done a great job on answering questions so far. With love from Nederland.
Thank you a ton for everything you do! The Swedish course is fantastic, great for a beginner like me with very little Swedish vocab!
Thank you so much for your help and work on Swedish course. It is my favorite and it is the most hard to learn for me because my native L is Spanish. The only language that help me a little is to know a few English. Im waiting the Spanish to Swedish course it will be ready this days. But i start the English to Swedish for start learning a base, and im having fun with it. Thank you, i apreciate your work. :)
I hope you leave your brain to science! It's just incredible that you can study so many languages and be proficient in so many. My hat is off to you, sir! Or madam!
I've been on Duolingo about a month.
I reset my German tree last week.
I'm from the U.S.A. and speak only
I would like to know. How far is
Sweden from Germany?
Also, when work such as you're
doing, to build (or rebuild) a
language tree in Duolingo, is
set upon, are you doing this
as a paid employee or as an
Do Duolingo screen you for
credentials before enlisting
Thanks in advance.
You probably want a answer from Super-svensk, but I stumbled upon this and now the answer. Swedish is different from German in a lot of ways, but their are from the same "family" Germanian languages. The grammar is quite different, but there are a lot of similar words and as a native Swedish speaker who've been learning German for a couple of years I must say it's not that hard if you know one of the languages.
Excited to hear about these new developments Super-Svensk! Are there others on the Swedish Duolingo team who will (hopefully) be helping you with the potential V2?
Please do, I look forward to the course enhancements. Im having so much fun learning
