Swedish Tree Done in 50 Days!
Well, here I am at the top of the tree, and I'm really amazed at how much I have learned in such a short amount of time. I just wanted to thank the Swedish moderators and users for being extremely helpful and always answering questions when they arose. This course has been really amazing. Thank you very much for giving us the opportunity to learn this beautiful language!
It took me fifty days. I didn't do much work for a week around Christmas, so I probably could have finished faster if I had really wanted to.
I'm not that great at speaking for a couple reasons: I'm terrible at imitating accents even in my own language, and I haven't much practiced Swedish pronunciation anyway. I know most of the rules, I just need practice! My verbal comprehension probably isn't that great, either (Swedes speak very quickly!)
I'm not trying to discourage you; my reading and writing skills are very good and still steadily improving. By the time you're finished with the course, I'm sure you'll be very good at it as well. Do your best, though, to find someone who speaks Swedish and talk with them to improve your speaking and listening skills.
Wow really nice! I started two weeks ago, but I have a decent sized vocabulary. It's just the grammar that gets me, and of course some of the really weird rules, if you can even call them that. Since I work in Swedish and have lived here for 2 years, I'm sure it's different because I always hear the language- no excuse for me not being fluent by now ; ). There are plenty of conversation/language exchange sites if you ever wanted a Swede to speak with! : ) Best of luck with everything and thanks for the quick reply.
