Indeed I do!

I keep confusing "going" and "walking". This made for a pretty funny sentence here, considering I live in Canada...

can i say it in english that "i would like" ?

August 5, 2015


Nope. jag vill => I want, jag skulle vilja => I would like.

OK, i have not heard "skulle" yet...maybe later :)

August 23, 2015


thus: jag skulle vilja åka till Sverige? could you do a subjunctive with tycker om? I know I'm jumping the gun here...

As a native English speaker, "I like to go to Sweden" sounds very clunky. It can be said, but usually "I like going to Sweden" is the preferred phrasing. Is the same true for native swedish? Just wondering.

Swedish doesn't have the -ing construction, so no?

    So tycka and gilla are not modals in Swedish? I'm comparing this to the use of mögen in German.

    "I like to drive to Sweden". Considering I live in Denmark, is it wrong?

    December 1, 2016


    I would say that's incorrect because att åka doesn't imply a specific mode of transportation. To drive specifically would be Jag tycker om att åka bil till Sverige. I suppose you could also say "I like to travel to Sweden", depending on context. I don't know if that's an accepted answer.

    Both att åka and att gå translate to English to go (eller dansk at gå), but which is used depends on context: http://blogs.transparent.com/swedish/aka-or-ga/

    If we r using gillar. do we say it "Jag gillar att åka till sverige" or "Jag gillar åka till sverige"?

    February 17, 2017


    Jag gillar att åka till sverige. If you verb doing another verb, the second verb needs to be in the infinitive form.

    Is there a quick guide on when you need to use 'att' and when you don't?

    March 14, 2017


    If you verb doing another verb, the second verb needs to be in the infinitive form (with att).

    March 14, 2017


    … except with e.g. modal verbs like måste or vill where you cannot have att.
    Jag måste läsa 'I must read' and Jag vill sova 'I want to sleep'.
