swedish just came out, how could you already finished your tree? Congratulations :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hazilrigg

Thanks! I tested out of some stuff, and then I just worked on it a lot every day!

What?! I thought it just came out 2 weeks ago... Congratulations anyway! Got to work out my tree!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hazilrigg

Yeah, but I have a bit of an obsession, haha! Thanks!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/haembeogeo

A lil obsession you do have :p thats super awesome and crazy quick! I did my first lesson and it was real nice. Loved the sound of it as well but i controlled myself from going further cause i gotta focus on german first hoho. Cant wait to learn it soon :p congratulations!! :D

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


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/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.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/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.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/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.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/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.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/pjb518

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


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/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.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Fatih120

Wow, that fast?! :O


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dobie42

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 :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/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?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dobie42

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


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/writerjisung

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!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/yiyi3000

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


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/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.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sjodni

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


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hazilrigg

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


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sjodni

Still, congrats!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/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.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/juliecaesar

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