I've completed the tree! :D

After a few months, and over 30 skills over the past 3 days, I've completed the Swedish tree!!! :D

This is definitely one of my favorite trees! The tree is very thorough, and full with many tidbits of information about Sweden, Swedish culture and references to many other things. It's a true joy to go through!

Thank you to all the moderators of the Swedish course! And to all the people who have encouraged me along the way.

I plan to keep practicing with my tree, find a Swedish pen-pal, listen to music and watch films in Swedish and read!

Grattis! Since you know so many languages, it would be interesting to hear more about what you think about Swedish! For example, what is special, what is easy and what is difficult? Have you finished the Danish tree yet by the way?

I really appreciated all the references to Swedish novels, films and songs too! I haven't seen that in any other course, but it could be that I'm just too ignorant to notice :).

Tack! Well, for the Swedish course, the easiest part is basically everything. The only hard part for me is the pronunciation! I have yet to finish Danish.

No, I don't think I've seen that in any of the other courses!

Congratulations GeniusJack! I can't wait to finish my first tree. Is that your sixth or seventh tree finished (I can't tell if you have completed Portuguese) :)

30 skills in 3 days? Horee shite purupurutsuntsun that's a lot. o.e

If anyone got my reference I'll give them 27 lingots.

February 11, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/GeniusJack

Haha, thanks, I suppose. Swedish is one of the simplest languages I've studied.

Really? For me I find it to be like one of the hardest ever! I can't remember the words/spellings, it's ridiculous. For me Dutch was the easiest, but that's because I've learned German for 4 years.

Would you say you're like B1 or so in communication abilities? How many hours did you work per day on it? Are you just one of those people who naturally retains information very easily, to do 30 skills in a day?

February 11, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/GeniusJack

Haha, the hardest for me is (and was!) German! It's just not that difficult for me.

Nah, at the moment I'm probably still A2. I have great short term memory, but I really need to review now. After a bit of review I'll be B1 in communication abilities easy. I don't know how many hours, tbh!

Do you try to focus on one language for long periods or do little bits of each one every day/week/whatever?

February 12, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/GeniusJack

I study each language as I feel I need review in it! :) While continuously learning new things (in several languages).
