I want to beat my first attempt, but that seems to be harder than expected...
First one I got wrong was Ukrainian, I guessed Polish. I thought they were two of the three Slavic languages I can tell apart, but I guess not... it didn't have any obvious dead giveaways of Polish, but it sounded less like Russian than what I'd usually expect of Ukrainian so that's why I picked Polish.
Second one I got wrong was Malay, again... I thought it was Tagalog; I can't recognise Tagalog either, but it didn't sound like the previous Malay clips, so... is Malay the killer of /ref/ugees?
Third one I got wrong was Czech again, I thought it was Lithuanian. Seriously, Czech really doesn't sound Slavic!?
First one I got wrong was Swedish, I thought it was Norwegian. They've always been absolutely indistinguishable to me unless it's some non-standard distinctly Swedish- or Norwegian-sounding dialect, but Standard Swedish and Nynorsk are practically the exact same thing anyway, so... ugh.
Second one I got wrong was Italian, I thought it was Catalan because it had a bunch of [ʒ] in it, which I didn't know Italian ever has.
...and then I thought Polish was Ukrainian.
Hahaha, I got the same Italian clip that I mistook for Catalan almost right off the bat. I didn't get that wrong again, although at first I almost would have if I didn't realise it was the same clip...
First one I got wrong was Croatian, which I thought was Czech because it sounded kinda Slavic but not really. I guess it sounding even a little bit Slavic should've ruled out Czech... I'm starting to believe in a conspiracy theory that Czech isn't a Slavic language, change my mind.
