I would like to have a challenge together with people learning German.
My target is to reach level 20 by the end of September! Lets see how close we can go.
I am level 14. For me the target is quite unrealistic whith my 40hours/week job. It can be interesting to see how close to 20 I can do, but my real target is : to pass the last "checkpoint" by the end of September (that is to say : 13 skills to learn = 64 lessons !!! Maybe a little bit unrealistic too but I will try). Good luck to everybody with your challenge, it would be good to share our experiences at the end of the month :)
Yes!! I really want to learn German. I just started but I already have some knowledge.
Great my target is to reach level 20 by the end of September! Lets see how close we can go.
Yeah! That will be great. I want to finish the tree quickly but until I reach level 20 will take some time. :)
.i am on Level 19 I also want to get to Level 20 by the end of September. Sunshine 4271
I can't see reaching certain levels as an indication of learning. If you are learning rapidly, you don't move up the levels as fast. I finished the Italian tree in 2 months at level 16. I redid it, and refreshed the entire tree a couple of times, and I'm still only at 20. I'll finish the German tree (a refresher course for me) tomorrow, at level 12. And, of course, the higher levels take a lot more points to achieve. I see you are at level 16, so it the number of points needed won't change for you. 1500, I think, isn't it?
It all depends on how you look at things. Personally, it is better finishing and understanding each lesson before I jump to the next one. It is not so important to just finish the tree as to reachthe next level as this indicates how much you try to repeat your lessons. My opinion.
But reaching higher levels means that you missed a lot more questions, and thus have more to answer. You don't have to go fast to finish the course with a higher level - in fact, if you have all the resources you need, study hard, and take it slowly and carefully, you will complete the tree at a lower level. But if you have to keep repeating everything, you will wind up at a higher level. In any case, I think it is important to get through the course, then go back and review. My experience is that I do a whole lot better in the long run that way. If I spend enough time in review and refreshing, I will eventually reach a higher level.
