I'm pretty sure team denmark from duolingo is secretly recording foreign people that try to pronounce this to laugh at us...


Duo asked me to read this one aloud. I was pleased to see it tell me that I got those particular words right!


Til lykke!!!


I can't even begin to imagine that...


What on earth are the course writers on? Can we have some please?


What the heck is this sentence QwQ WHEN WILL I EVER NEED TO SAY THIS.


I think the course writer's use of absurd is to shock us into remembering the structure rather than the vocabulary. It is a typical "cadavre exquis". Admittedly the DK course has rather a lot of them! I don't find it a problem, what bothers me more is the poor English written by non-natives that never gets corrected.


Red groats? Are they similar to muesli?


It is a type of jelly with strawberries in it


My Duolingo accepted my answer, but it's translation said: "The farmer says that theres rødgrød with cream in the girl's blue socks". It should be either: "... says that there is..." or "... says that there's..." instead of "... says that theres..."
