That's good to read, jeff, consistency plays a big role, especially when you already have an understanding of the language.

#1 done: added a short description and the link to the challenge's post.

I... I... I just have to ask, although I'm not sure I want to know, did you mean to describe Swedish as a sexual predator?

I... umm... yeah...

Den eneste grund til, at jeg lærer dansk er, at jeg kan lide det. For to år siden så jeg tilfældigvis et sprogkursus på dansk i biblioteket og lånte det, fordi jeg var nysgerrig for at vide, hvordan sproget lyder. Det lød underligt. Det lød så underligt, at jeg besluttede mig til at studere det.

Jeg ved ikke, hvad jeg skal gøre nu. Måske skal jeg fortsætte med at læse Harry Potter og se på danske film og fjernsynserier. Udtalen er svær. Jeg begynder at tvivle på, at jeg nogensinde kan komme til at tale ordentligt.



The only reason I'm learning Danish is because I like it. Two years ago I happened to see a Danish course at the library and checked it out because I wondered what it sounded like. It sounded odd. It sounded so odd, I decided to study it.

I don't know what to do now. Maybe I'll keep reading Harry Potter and watching Danish movies and TV series. The pronunciation is hard. I'm beginning to doubt if I'll ever be able to speak properly.

Jeg lærer norsk fordi jeg synes det er en pent språk som høres eksotisk ut. Det er ikke den førsten gang jeg
prøve å lære norsk men jeg får hope det er for godt. Dessverre forstår jeg ikke mye.
Jeg har lyst til å kunne lese bøker på norsk og, hver vet, reise til Norge igjen. Jeg har hatt lykken å reise til
Norge når jeg var fortsatt en tenårige og det har gjort en sterke inntrykk på meg. Det er virkelig et drømme
land.

I learn Norwegian because I think it´s a beautiful language which sounds exotic. It´s not the first time I 've
tried to learn Norwegian but I hope it´s for good. Unfortunately, I understand little. I would like to be able to
read books in Norwegian and, who knows, travel to Norway again. I was lucky to travel to Norway when I was
still a teenager and it has made a strong impression on me. It´s a real dreamland.

85 words in Norwegian and I feel like exhausted, I really need practising :D

Ojoj, vilket språk måste jag välja? Jag kan förmodligen också skriva det på norska men
jag har valt svenska för enkelhetens skull. Jag har egentligen ingen konkret idé hur
jag kommer att använda språken på ett lämpligt sätt, men jag kan tillräckligt bra
svenska för att helt enkelt läsa allt som finns utan större problem, och på ett mindre
sätt på norska också (Jag betraktar danska inte som ett språk jag pluggar seriöst).
Jag skriver ofta på min blogg på båda språk (min svenska är bättre och mer precis, men
jag kan till och med skriva bokmål om jag måste, även om det blir svorsk).

Jag vet även inte riktigt varför jag började. Förmodligen för att det var lätt och att
jag kunde det. Det blev en sådan förträfflig upplevelse att jag fortsätte.

Translation:

Oh dear, which language to choose? I could probably also write this in Norwegian but I
have chosen Swedish for simplicity's sake. I don't actually have any concrete idea how
to use my languages in a suitable way, but my Swedish is good enough that I can read
pretty much everything without problems anyway (and this holds to a lesser extent for
Norwegian, as I don't consider Danish a language I'm studying). I often write on my
blog in both languages, although my Swedish is better because my Norwegian is often
more svorsk.

I don't even really know why I began - probably because I could, but it turned out to
be so cool that I continued.

Jeg synes norsk er et viktig språk for meg. Jeg skulle onske jeg kunne skrive norsk uten feil, men denne dagen er fortsatt langt unna. Men jeg tror vel at jeg kunne snakke med folk fullstending i norsk hvis jeg ankom til Norge akkurat nå. Kanskje jeg ikke kunne forstå alt som folk svarte, men jeg kunne snakke om de viktigste temaene uten å må ti til engelsk. Jeg ser frem til å kune snakke norsk flytende, og jeg lærer hver dag for å oppnå dette malet. Jeg leser bøker på norsk og ser på TV - forstatt med undertekster, men jeg vil prøve å gjøre det uten dem, for å innse hvor mye jeg kan forstå av den faktiske språk. Det viktigste nå er å skrive og snakker mer norsk, fordi man trenger jo å øve for å lære et språk. Jeg liker norsk, Norge og jeg vil forstå mer om den norske kultur og den norske stat.


I think Norwegian is an important language for me. I wish I could write in Norwegian without mistakes, but this day is still far away. But I do believe I could talk to people entirely in Norwegian if I arrived in Norway right now. Maybe I could not understand everything that people would answer, but I could talk about the most important topics without having to resort to English. I am looking forward to being able to speak Norwegian fluently, and I study every day in order to reach this goal. I read books in Norwegian and watch TV - still with subtitles, but I will try to do it without them, in order to realize how much I can understand of the actual language. The most important now is to write and speak Norwegian, after all one needs pratice in order to learn a language. I like Norwegian, Norway and I want to understand more about the Norwegial culture and state.
