Thank you :) I feel like these phrases are really close in English (like "six more weeks till summer" means the same as "six weeks left till summer")
thanks. What would be the difference between 6 veckor till and 6 veckor kvar ?
Same as with "six weeks more" and "six weeks left" respectively. Not much difference perhaps, but nonetheless some.
Sort of depends on the situation, but yes it can be used. But not in any official context.
"One more day till the revolution" would probably be something like ytterligare en dag tills revolutionen. I'm sure the native speakers will correct me if I'm wrong :)
Note that till is its own word in English and not an aphetic form of until, and is properly spelt with two L's and no apostrophe. The word until comes from the Old Norse words und (and/och) and til (to/till) though, so it's basically the same word in the end.
Sex means "sex" too right? Or at least is what i heard in the "simple swedish" videos
Does this have the same meaning as the English "six weeks (un)til [something]" ?
Yeah I was just gonna ask - if you want to say 'six weeks till' would you still use exactly the same phrase?
No, it does not mean the same as 'six weeks until/till', those would be tills.
'Sex veckor till' means 'Six weeks more', 'Six more weeks', 'Six weeks to go', 'Another six weeks', something like that.
6 veckor till, was my answer and it was wrong because i did not write sex... come on , really, how stupid is that?
Report mistakes! They can't remember every single correct solution on every single lesson. ;)
Not at all stupid. It's helpful to practice the numbers in the new language. Especially if it's a "type what you hear" exercise, they'll never let you get away with not spelling it out.
No, mer is for things you can't count (sugar, oil, etc…).
You could think "fler" (for numerables) could be used, but :
"fler is a comparative adjective. Think of it as "more than" not "more"."
