That's some hardcore DLing. How'd you like it?

November 29, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Hazilrigg

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.

November 30, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Skoldpaddor

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.

November 30, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Hazilrigg

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.

November 30, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Skoldpaddor

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.

November 30, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/pjb518

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

November 30, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Hazilrigg

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 :)

November 30, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Hazilrigg

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?

November 30, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Dobie42

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!

do you mix swedish and german? because they are close in vocabulary

December 1, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Hazilrigg

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.

What is your native language? And, really, congratulations!!! That is absolutely amazing! So, how is it knowing Swedish?

December 2, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Hazilrigg

Thanks! My native language is American English. And I still don't think I exactly KNOW Swedish yet :)

December 2, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Sjodni

Still, congrats!

Ok

https://www.duolingo.com/ZolnaiDora

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.

That's amazing, congratulations! I'm still working on the basics, but I'll get there eventually, I'm sure. :-)
