I start to get the uneasy feeling that in Sweden animals behave very strangely.

In America we teach children that the cow jumped over the moon! So, that's okay if Swedes see wolves jumping over chairs, not so difficult a task as jumping over the moon, don't you think?

And when he reaches the bed he will climb into it and pull the quilt up to his chin.

If this Grandma-Wolf can jump over a chair, it can jump into bed, too.

I was surprised that "hopped" was not accepted. Is there another verb that more accurately translates to "hopped?"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/devalanteriel

Yeah, to hop is att skutta.

Is it my idea "over" sounds like "ovel" especially on the slow listening??


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/devalanteriel

Sounds correct to me. The r is a lot softer than in some other languages, though.

Ok, thanks a bunch Devalanteriel :-)

"the wolf jumped over the stool" wasn't accepted.. Is there a different word for stool/chair?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/devalanteriel

Yes, a stool is a pall in Swedish.
