I finished my Swedish Tree!
Yaaay! After 6 months of working on it, I finally completed it! I've learned so much and it's been a lot of fun! Now I will keep my tree golden, listen to Swedish music and podcasts, read Swedish articles/books, talk to people and watch Swedish shows. xD (my first completed tree, btw)
I feel proud of what I've accomplished, however there is still so much more to learn! :D
I LOVE SWEDISH!! JAG ÄLSKAR SVENSKA!!
Grattis och bra jobbat!
Kom ihåg att fortsätta öva, så kommer din svenska bli perfekt till slut. :)
Haha, don't worry, you will! Enjoy your tree and when you finish, I would love to see you write about it as well! Lycka till!
Congratulations! ;) Didn't believe you would be so fast :D
And I've found a very useful alternative to Omegle which is called "SharedTalk". There are only people that want to practice their foreign languages, therefore I could talk much Italian myself there. My highest recommandations for that page!
Congrats! I've just started mine but I don't know if I'll finish, by the way some good shows is swedish are : Welcome to sweden and Akta Manniskor both are great and easily avaiable with subtiles either in swedish or in english. If I'm not intrusive , why did you decide to learn swedish? I'm curious!
Haha! I watched those shows, actually. Äkta Människor is my favourite! I met this person online from Sweden and she's my bff xD She would tell me things about Sweden and I became intrigued.. So I had this urge to learn Swedish and I found Duolingo! :D
I loved that show so much it's a shame that it won't get an third season =/ May I ask you what's your first language and if it was easy for you to learn swedish? My mother language is italian and I started to do the tree and so far I've found the grammar to be quite easy but the spelling is a bloody nightmare!
Me too! Disappointed. :( My mother tongue is English. Swedish is actually very easy for me to learn because it's close to English. xD
Ah I get it! the easiest language for me to learn instead was portuguese and I'm pretty sure no english speaker ever would consider portuguese a very easy language
YAY! Congrats :D What do you think, can you make sense of texts in Swedish now, at least the basic meaning? :)
Tack! :D And yes. I can talk to Swedes on Omegle with almost no problem. xD Sometimes there are words here and there that I don't understand, but I can grasp the meaning of a lot of sentences. It's pretty cool.
ie languages, Livemocha (though I don't use it anymore) I don't really remember much else of what I used. After I got on Duolingo I never really looked back!
very well done. do you think 6 mounths is an average time to learn the tree? I hope to study in sweden in say 3 years. do you feel you could live in sweden temperarily?
Well, other people learned theirs in like 2-3 months. xD I feel like I was the slowest, but I like taking my time. And it depends, really. I can talk about my day, family, friends, where I come from, etc. but I'm nowhere near fluent. I could probably go to Sweden for a bit and speak Swedish, but I might still struggle if I'm in a more complex situation. It depends on the person, I guess.
cheers ;) and well done again. I hope to find skype exchanges. cuz of my studys ill have to intensly learn in the hoildays and weekends so i hope that dosent effect it too much. cheers
Jag ser... Tack du så mycket, anyways. I've been progressing rapidly in hopes of unlocking a bonus skill. Perhaps we could learn a language together, and see who completes the tree first?
I don't know if I have the time for that :/ I want to focus my energy on Swedish for now
