I feel so close, yet so far away.
If I really push myself, I might be able to finish the Swedish tree on Duolingo before the end of the year.
Five years after my last t-shirt experiment I decided it was time for a new one. This one would be better, I thought, for several reasons.
And, just like the last t-shirt experiment, it failed.
Two weeks ago, on a complete whim, I decided to check out the Duolingo course on Swedish. To my surprise, I got hooked, and I've spent up to an hour a day learning Swedish. Here's what I like and don't like about Swedish so far.
German is hard. At least for me it is. I've tried and given up on German at least two or three times. Even though my Duolingo Profile says it's the language I've leveled up the most on, understanding German was still a big struggle for me.
Aw, the sense of accomplishment. After months (or longer) of trying, you finally finish a learning tree on Duolingo. It's happened for me twice. A year ago I finished French, and just a couple months ago I finished German.
