Dark, Duolingo. Dark.

Indeed. Reminds me of when I got "They didn't want to leave my prison" to translate from French once. Duo can be eerily creepy sometimes. :D

I don´t know....it´s pretty entertaining. I´m an English teacher, and when I write sentences for my students when we´re doing grammar, I always make them really gruesome....it keeps them awake!

Swedes are such a happy and positive bunch! I love you all, you're so humourous and upbeat! =D

It's weird, but in Stockholm at least the Swedish people do seem to be way more talkative, upbeat and enigmatic than I am (introverted and british), and I even find that lack of personal space can be an issue for me. I do wonder where the cultural stereotype comes from...

Soldiers with only one hand, people hitting their head against the wall and now a cold, dead body. Is the rest of this lesson as sad/morbid as this part? :)

Swedish love for 'deckare' :)

February 23, 2015


I put "deckare" into Google Translate and the translation was "Dick" (yes, it capitalized it even though the deckare was in lower case, go figure." I was glad to see the notation below giving different translations, putting it in context as dick has many and very diverse meanings at least in American English. ;-)

Krop is normally body, but that is for living people. If you say that the the body was cold you should talk about the corps.

corps is an army unit, not a body.

Right, corpse instead of corps.

Adding that 'a corpse' is ett lik in Swedish.
