"Such pillows are comfortable."
Translation:Sådana kuddar är bekväma.
I'd like to see these multiple choice questions become a bit harder, without options that are obviously wrong (äpple being used as a verb for example).
I totally agree, what I usually do to practice is not look at the answers yet and translate it myself first before I look at them.
I try to do this, but on mobile the options are so high up that I can't help but see them. I wonder if it's possible to contact the Duo Android team directly and suggest they implement a "Tap to show choices" button or something to hide them until you're ready to pick. Could be a toggle in the settings.
The voice is not quite perfect on this sentence, as of August 7th, 2017, so I've taken the liberty of re-recording it.
Whenever a word has two of the same consonants next to each other in Swedish, that's usually a hint that you need a short vowel rather than a long one. The voice chose poorly on this one.

Thanks for listening. Ha en bra dag! :)
We do accept that as well. The default is "such pillows" because we want to teach the Swedish construction sådana kuddar, which isn't weird in Swedish at all.
Only living beings can ha det bekvämt. So if kudden är bekväm, then du har det bekvämt :)
The female voice says "kudar" instead of "kuddar" I cannot remember now but there are other words in Swedish where you have a vowel followed by two consonants and the female voice mistakenly speaks with a 'slow' vowel instead a 'fast' vowel.
Yes. The only difference is in style - you may not want to use the shorter version in formal text.
