"Moose are generally vegetarians."
Translation:Älgar är i allmänhet vegetarianer.
everyone blames bears for missing hikers when really, it was the minority of moose that consume the flesh of wanderers
Why not "Älgar är vanligtvis vegetarianer"? I have not come across "i allmänhet" yet in the course.
I don't have the answer to the original question, but "vanligtvis" is an adverb (ending "-tvis"). Its adjective is "vanlig"
I have the same question. After all "algär" is plural. I think I'm missing something but I can't figure it out right now.
Älgar är vegetariska would mean 'moose are not meat'. While that is clearly untrue, if you want to say it in English, it would be Moose are vegetarian, not vegetarians, because vegetarians only means they do not eat meat.
For the same reasons, if you say Our food is vegetarian in English, you don't eat meat, but if you say Our food is vegetarians, you're a cannibal with a preference. :D
This is not a reply but a request. I don' t know how to get in touch with you otherwise. Sorry! Well, I am really very much impressesd by the quality of your teaching. It's a game for me. And playing swedish like that is a gift. Tack så mycket.
I think though that there are not enough exercises where we have to find the swedish words, sentences and expressions. Comprehension is easy but using what we have learnt is quite difficult. Well, I only started 2 months ago. And I really want to understand my swedish friends when they don t speak english. AndI love the country. May be I am a little too eager to get the results of my efforts.
About 40% of the course known already??? I should be proud but I am not. Nevertheless I am very grateful. Thanks again.
To all of you, learners like me.

I'm glad you like the course!
If I could change one thing about Duolingo, I'd definitely pick letting users customize how much they get to translate into the target language. Unfortunately, we as course contributors have no say whatsoever about this. It's something Duo decides and it works the same for all courses. Possibly you could campaign for it in the general forums or upvote existing topics about it there – Duo staff don't read the Swedish forums so they'll never see discussions about it here.
Already an answer.
And I found it although I am not good on computers and cell telephones. Will I have the courage to use the forum?
I am very grateful! The quality of your work is amazing. Thank you so much. Karin
I love the one suggested solution that translates as "moose are usually their own breakfast" :)
