I love Duolingo, but they really could use somebody on the staff who understands syllabus design. I've been learning Swedish for three days and can't introduce myself, nor order a coffee, but I know most of the animals in a one-volume encyclopedia (and that the ant likes the spider and the spider drinks water).

I generally agree with you, since I posted this last year http://www.reddit.com/r/duolingo/comments/17d6qt/why_animals_so_early/

However, people seem to love learning animals. I'm now a contributor to the Esperanto course and while we decided to follow the general Duolingo course structure, we decided to limit ourselves to the really most common animals, so we could get on with teaching more important stuff earlier. ;)

well, you can say "Jag är [enter your name]", or "en kaffe, tack".

"Jag heter X"

"Jag vill gerne ha en kopp kaffe (med mjölk och/eller socker), tack" *

I'm a bit shaky on that second one as I've just written what I learned in Danish, so gerne might not even be a word in Swedish lol

Sounds like the title to an allegory.

Swedes deciding what to eat for lunch?

Maybe! It's not uncommon for Swedish cuisine to include reindeer or moose, especially right after hunting season.

At first I was like, "why are we learning such useless animals?" Then I remembered, this is Sweden! :-D

I responded Reindeer and Elk, but got it wrong. Is it not the same?

No, because it should be 'THE reindeer and THE elk'. Can't you see the endings of the words?
