Nu är jag på nivå sjutton! (The one I still can’t pronounce. Stupid “sj” sound.)
I’m one-and-a-bit skills from the final checkpoint, and then there’s 19 more to go after that to finish the entire Duolingo Swedish tree. But I’m in no rush. Slow and steady wins the race, after all.
I feel like I’ve come a long way these past few months. Of course, I’m still making endless mistakes, but I’m thinking up words that I didn’t even know I knew and understanding conversations (both written and spoken!) above and beyond what I’d ever expected – it’s odd, but it’s amazing. I might still be on shaky ground, but how great is it that I’ve gotten this far on my own?
Onwards and upwards!
