Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Carl: Hata, or “to hate,” is a very strong word for Swedish people and should only be used if it’s truly meant. Try using gillar inte, meaning “don't like,” to express negative feelings towards something instead.

Hej Adolf,

"Tenta" means exam on University level. :innocent: On lower school level we say "prov" which means test.
