Does anyone want to Skype?

There's a great little Skype group for the Danish group which is really helpful. Would anyone want to start one here? I know I could use some serious practice with my Swedish pronunciation and grammar.

If there's enough interest, I would like to set up a Skype account for Swedish Duolingo (as the Danish group did). I will, however, require some help with the administration of the group and so on. It would be really great if we could get some native speakers in the group too for helping with grammar and pronunciation and so on.

Anyone interested should add swedish.duolingo on Skype so I can add you to the group. Specify that you're from Duolingo when you send the request. :)

Also, upvotes to this thread would be much appreciated to help get the news of this Skype group more public.

It's a great idea. However, you need someone in the group who is a native speaker or at least fluent, otherwise it's just beginners talking to other beginners, who could be (potentially) doing it all wrong.

Are there any native speakers who would like to participate?

Alright, the account and group are set up. For now we can practice amongst ourselves and hopefully we'll eventually get some native speakers to join and help out.

I had sent in a Skype request to the group awhile ago, but I haven't gotten a response yet. Should I resend the contact request?

I've added everyone to the group now. I could really use some help with managing the Swedish Duolingo Skype account though.

I would help out with management if you want and tell me what to do.

Super! If I give you the login info for the Swedish Duolingo Skype account, will you help me get people added to the group discussion and such not?
