Duolingo magic

I can't believe it, really, I can't believe it. But let me start this story. So, I learn French IRL, but I didn't learn a lot of things. Then I started to use Duolingo and now, I am a lot, lot better in it! My teacher says, that in a few months, I can make the middle level exam(thank you Duo!), but this isn't so interesting.

I started learning Swedish just for fun, and to have something test Duolingo. And anyways, I want to live in Sweden, it's a so nice country. So today, our teacher spoke about class tours to Austria. Then we started to speak about that they will give us Hungarian audioguides. In the back of the room, there was a conversation, that someone will take the Chinese one, etc. Then one of my friends asked me that will I take a French or an English(he knows that I like to learn languages). I said him: Nej, jag tänker att den svenska är bättre. He looked at me like I was a UFO from Mars(and some other people around me too!). Anyways, before this moment, I thought that I learn a little from Duolingo. And then a magic happens, and I can speak a little Swedish!

Thank you Duolingo! You are awesome!

That's cool! Congratulations!

Though, if you don't mind, a small correction. In this context, we would use tycker for think, net tänker. Tänker is for... how to explain it... thoughts, plans, that kind of stuff, while tycker is for opinions, like likes, dislikes, perceptions. For example, regarding quality, Jag tycker att den svenska är bättre, or for perception (imagine talking about a color between blue and green): - I think it looks blue. - Jag tycker den ser blå ut.

It could also be tror if you are talking about the belief that it'll be better, but I think you were going for tycker?

I hope you don't mind my input ^^

I know something about Duolingo magic too! Everyday during the day some completly random swedish words come to my mind. It is crazy cause I think in my native (polish) language and suddenly I replace one single word with swedish one and I can't even control it. It is amazing.

Do you write down words to your notebook? If yes, translation is in Polish or English? I write down all the new words and translation is in English ;)

Oh it depends really. I have a "special" notebook for swedish but I don't have all the words there because I also use app for example on my way to uni and it's impossible to write down words in a bus :D I wish there was an option to print the words from the lessons, it would be so useful!

By your avatar it looks like you would be the person to talk to about making a Finnish for English course.

Would you say Finnish would be a difficult language for an English speaker to learn if they don't have a lot of experience with foreign languages? I find French and German fairly straight forward, but other languages are pretty difficult for me.
