    vet du også bokmål? Hvorfor bruker du nynorsk?
    Ja, vi innvandrere alle studerer bokmål. Faktisk er det umulig for de fleste av oss å ta et nynorskkurs. Men når man jobber i Vestlandet er halvparten av skriflig kommunikasjon skrivet på nynorsk. Derfor er det kjekt å lære seg nynorsk.

    I tillegg finner jeg at nynorsk er mer interessant. Det ligger nærmere til det som mange folk snakker og til nørront. Bokmål er kjedelig og jeg liker ikke Oslo-intonasjon.

    Aah I like that! It's quite logical

    What's your background? Like age, languages etc
    I'm English and don't speak any other languages. Just finished a masters degree in Biology, so I'm learning languages whilst I no job or degree on at the moment. I started Swedish and Spanish on Duolingo, but I've given up on Spanish for now as I'm writing applications, and I'm concentrating on Swedish.

    Aah nice!

    Spanish would probably be better in terms of application but then again Swedish biotechnology companies would be cool

    I picked Swedish because I've been on holiday there dozens of times. I'm a bit late in learning it I didn't really like languages much when I was younger, but Duolingo has that sort of internet-based addictiveness factor to it that helped me get started, and now I can probably carry on without it.

    Wooo, yah languages are so underrated and I feel they need promotion.

    I hated them up until like Year 11 summer and I was like, woah, languages are epic.

    Duolingo is amazing in what it does, for free as well.

    Hej, Katie heter jag. Jag kan bara två språk, Engelska och Svenska. Jag har varit i Sverige ett par gånger och har länge tänkt på att flytta till Gotland efter universitet. Jag har många vänner som bor i Visby och har alltid velat jobba utomlands. Svenska är ett ganska lätt språk att lära sig om man försöker använda det varje dag. Man behöver inte specifikt plugga språk, men man måste fördjupa sig inom det. Lycka till!

    I went to Sweden last summer and loved the sound of the language.

    I've found it enjoyable to take a leaf out of their book and watch YouTube vlogs with English subtitles, trying to relate to words I can hear in their speech. The Swedes and other Scandis always love an English-speaking show with their native subtitles, so it's quite refreshing to do the opposite.
