Swedish for English speakers is now in beta!

I'm excited to announce that the Swedish for English speakers course is now in beta! A big congrats to the Incubator volunteers that helped build this course: Arnauti, Anrui, Blehg, Anders91, Sholeh, Gealach24, and cpwetterqv.

If you encounter any issues (bugs or missing translations) please make sure to report them! This helps improve the course for future learners.

Cheers!

It's great that there is a website which give free languages to anyone! Wonder what it will be like in five years; will we have made a lesson for most languages? Thanks, happy learning! :)

    Woo thank you so much Duolingo team and the contributors.

    Now Swedish is out of the incubator and into Beta, can we put Croatian in the incubator???

    That would be so awesome. My native language going out of the incubator and the language I want to learn more than anything (which also could have been a native language of mine...) going in haha.

    Tack så mycket Team Swedish!! Even before this course made it to beta, it changed lives and brought me closer to a family member that I had not connected with previously. So, this means a lot to me just that it exists. I'll be studying more seriously in about a year. But, I'm already having fun peeking a bit early. :D

    Congrats team Swedish! Only... ::cries:: the audio is soooo bad...kind of much worse than Italian's audio... I debated turning off my speakers but I kind of want to learn the pronunciation as I go... Swedish speakers: are the words at least being pronounced correctly? Setting aside how unnatural and hard to listen to it is, is the voice at least getting the vowels and consonants correct?

    November 18, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HelenCarlsson

    Well, she sounds stupid. As if she doesn't have a clue what she is talking about. Which makes sense of course :).

    November 19, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/underwood.jones

    I'm not sure if they slowed it down or tweaked it, or if I'm just getting used to it...but I swear when I first started the course it sounded like the bald people from the future on that episode of South Park...

    How the heck did I miss this? Congrats to the Swedish team! :D

    EDIT: 9 languages for English speakers and counting! That's 10 flags total you can have on your user flair (including the American flag because of reverse courses).

    Awesome! Already another new language. Thanks a bunch to the swedish team. Many people won't be able to get the chance to learn it if it weren't for the contribution of you guys! Looking forward to learning it after I'm comfortable with my other languages ^^

    I did not get the notification email again.

    It hasn't stabilized enough to send out the emails yet. :)

    Ah, I feel stupid now. Thank you for explaining :)

    November 18, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/CLMekvold

    While most linguists say to only learn two languages at a time, duo is making that very difficult ;)

    I am so excited! Thanks to all volunteers :D

    If you ever plan on adding a Korean course, I'd love to help. 나중에 한국어 레슨 추가할 계획이 있으면 저도 도워주고 싶습니다.

    November 18, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Usagiboy7

    There is already a Team Korean. But you can always apply. If they need more people they go through the applications. Http:://incubator.duolingo.com/apply :)

    November 18, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/withmatt

    Wow, I missed that. Thanks a lot. I just applied.

    November 19, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ptoro

    Yes!! Now this is how you attract more users and increase retention among existing ones.

    Congrats to team Duo and the Swedish team on the on time delivery!

    (Probably the first course that pre-announced the beta launch date).

    Perfect! I can't wait to have this on the mobile app so I can learn anytime on the go. Thank you!

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PurpleOwlFactory

    Thank you so so much! It has been hard for me to find a good Swedish course. So very grateful.

    One question: Does anyone know around when the app will be updated so that I can study Swedish on my phone?

    December 1, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Kapadokya

    Would love to have the app now as its really badly optimized on mobile browsers!

    December 2, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Willowfae

    It's okay on an ipad. I use the app on my phone, but on my ipad I use the website as you don't get access to the tips, or the discussions on the sentences when using the app :(

    December 2, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JulieBerga

    Great!

    December 9, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/olyglotED

    thanks for adding this--it has been a dream of mine to learn this language for ages

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/liestef

    hej! I can't get it on the iPad app. Is it available yet? Tack!

    January 1, 2015

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Usagiboy7

    It's not available yet. But, it's available on the Android and will likely be available on the iPhone at the next update. You can, however, access the website from your ipad. It's not perfect because the website stuff wasn't made for the ipad. But, I often use it anyway. :)

    January 1, 2015

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/liestef

    Thanks for the very quick reply! I'm refreshing my Danish so maybe once I'm finished that it'll be available! I appreciate you getting back to me! :-)

    January 1, 2015

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Usagiboy7

    De nada :)

    January 1, 2015

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Willowfae

    I actually prefer to use the website on the ipad and only use the app on the phone. You cannot access discussions or tips and notes on the app.

    January 6, 2015

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/eileen111

    I am trying to access Swedish via my App on an Ipad but can't find it! What am I doing wrong?

    January 6, 2015

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Willowfae

    It's not on the app yet. But you can use the website on your iPad.

    Hi guys! Greate course, thank you! Could you please advise which level (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_European_Framework_of_Reference_for_Languages) matches the knowledge acquired after the last lesson here?
