Hej Ruba!


Great question!

In Swedish 1600-talet means from the year 1600 to 1699. And that's the English 17th century!


Lycka till!

Hej allihopa!


jag älskar alla grönsaker och frukter.


men jag har en fråga: Engla sa (Tomaten kom till sverige på 1600-talet) och sen kom översättningen (The tomatoe came to Sweden in the seventeenth century)

Varför sextonhundra på svenska och seventeenth på engelska?


tack och hälsningar!
