Sometimes it was a breeze, sometimes I wanted to smash my head against a wall. It was easier if I didn't have music with English lyrics or an English tv show on or something.

I know it's easier than English because it's more consistent and grammatically very pleasing, but I'm still struggling. It sounds so good, though, and I love the diacritics. I hear there are some good Swedish crime-drama and science fiction shows.

I typically can't get into the crime shows (too dark for me) but I haven't seen any of the sci fi ones yet. I actually really struggle with some aspects of the grammar, but I seem to do fairly well with vocabulary. And I agree, Swedish is very pleasing to the ear. Although, I prefer very southern Swedish accents, which I'm told is a bit unusual.

I heard Real Humans is good, but I haven't seen it yet. I'm not very far through, so the grammar might get harder, but vocabulary's my struggle. I like the southern accents because they use the French R, if my information is correct.

Real Humans is good. I watched the first season a couple of weeks ago.

I dunno if everyone would be happy about you calling it the "French" R :p, but yes in my experience they more or less do use a pretty guttural R.

Wow, congratulations! I have a question, though, about the trees. I've tried looking it up, but for some reason I cannot find an explanation on what a "tree" is exactly. Like, you completed the tree, but your swedish is level 11?... If someone could explain or link me to the explanation that I must have missed, I'd really appreciate it :)

So finishing my tree means that I completed all of the Swedish lessons that are on Duolingo. The level cap on Duolingo goes way higher (25 I think?) than what's necessary to complete the Swedish (or any language) tree on Duolingo. Does that make sense?

Yes, that clears it up for me. Thank you, and grattis igen!!

Congrats! I wish I was that fast. xD I'm no where near done with my Swedish tree, but I believe it will be the first tree I'll complete ever since I found Duolingo two years ago. ^^ Must keep going!

No, I noticed that there are some similar adjectives but besides that it's pretty different. But also, I know a very, very small amount of German, so...

But in any case, linguistically, I don't think German and Swedish are close enough for one to really get confused between the two. It's not like, say, Spanish and Italian.

my native language is Hungarian, and swedish and german (for me) really very close, not even the vocabulary, it's close in grammar - the Hungarian grammar is very different from them. But i don't mix the 2 language, sometimes when I am tired I make few mistakes.
