  5. I finished my Swedish tree!

I finished my Swedish tree!

Hej!

After about a month of serious Swedish, 66 skills, 6400 XP, 2361 words and 14 levels, I have finished my Swedish tree! This was such a cool tree (and really in depth, too). I really liked learning about Sweden along the way :D

What did I like?

The sentences in this course were so funny and I loved all the references to various things :) The course went really in-depth with Swedish grammar and it teaches more words than any of the other courses I've done.

My Favourites

Favourite sentences: Sänk temperaturen i bastun innan desvettas ihjäl! ("Reduce the temperature in the sauna before they sweat to death!"), Sverige, tolv poäng! ("Sweden, twelve points!") and Det norska trollet slog det svenska trollet i ansiktet ("The Norwegian troll hit the Swedish troll in the face")

Favourite skills: Spiritual and Supernatural, Celebrate

Tack!

Now it's time to thank Team Swedish! Tack så mycket, Arnauti, Anrui, Lundgren8, Blehg, Zmrzlina och Anders91! You guys have made an awesome course :D (And can I just say how cool I think the Swedish golden owl looks?)

What now?

Now I will try my best to work towards level 25, I will try to finally finish my French tree, I will re-watch the first two seasons of Bron to put my Swedish to good use and I will wait patiently until Melodifestivalen!

Tack!

Grattis! Have you seen Äkta Människor? It's my second favourite Swedish series after Bron and before Welcome to Sweden.

Tack! I haven't heard of Äkta Människor but it looks really cool! Thanks :D I've heard of Welcome to Sweden but I thought it was just another American sitcom and wasn't sure if it would be good for practicing my Swedish :/

In a sense, WtS is just another sitcom, and the opportunities to learn Swedish are a bit more limited than with the other series. I still enjoyed it, because many of the experiences of the "invandrare" were relatable for me. Of course they are exaggerated for comedic effect, but I found that strangely consoling: yes, I did embarrass myself from time to time with Swedes, but maybe not quite so badly :)

I think I'll give it a try...I just need to figure out a way to watch it in Ireland :P

    Congratulations! That's amazing how fast you finished! I also may have started cracking up in public at the Eurovision reference.

    Congratulations! I've only just started my Swedish tree so this is very inspiring! :)

    What I've loved so far are sentences like:

    The problem is that you are too fat. The problem is not me. It's you. The fat girl likes the skinny guy.

    There's some more but I don't know them of the back of my head. Those, however, really cracked me up :D

    "What a big sausage you have!". That one was the best one for me.
