The Complete Golden Tree

Hey Fellow Language Learners, How long did it take you to get to the end of the tree on Duolingo? And if you are not there yet (like me), how long do you think it will take you...? Thanks!

About four or five months. I'm almost there. It would be quicker if I wasn't keeping everything gold.

I think about another two or three months and I will be done with the current trees. It might happen sooner then later though because the closer I get to the end, the more excited I get and the more lessons I do.

When I'm done, I'm going to go back and fix all the gold that I've neglected.

It took me about two months to finish the French tree, because I had already had some French, so things were a little easier. With German, I'm on my 50th day of practice and almost halfway down the tree. I think it will take me another two months or so to finish it, which will in total be four months for the German tree.

The number of days/months to complete a tree depends a lot on your prior knowledge of both languages and the time you spent each day. I did the German English tree in 13 days, working every day hours with DL. If you are familiar with both languages and take all shortcuts you can probably finish a tree on one day. Your knowledge of a language grows only with the number of hours practicing . How faster you go to the end of the tree, how lesser you learn. I'm going further practicing my German in the English German tree. I'm going to take plenty of time for it.

I agree. Plus it's a question of wether you go straight to the next lesson or if you review it a lot. I'm progressing really slow in the German tree even if I practice every day, because I don't feel comfortable moving on as long as I'm not sure about at least half the stuff of the previous lesson. It's definitely gonna take me several months!

Not even halfway through the spanish tree and i started on dl back in April if i remember correctly. I would rather be stuck in the tree halfway through and be able to memorize every single word instead of completing the tree and only memorize half the words. I take the same lessons over and over till it's stuck permanently in my head.

My streak indicates how long I've been going (69 days) and I estimate I should be there in about three more weeks.

I have 18 lessons left to complete my Italian tree. I'm here since September and I'm planning to complete my tree by the end of the year. So, it will take me about 4 months.

Note that also, Italian here on DL is the language with the greatest number of lessons (415 lessons in total as opposed to 317 lessons in Spanish). See: http://www.duolingo.com/comment/1015809 (However, I think that Italian is the easiest language among the ones on DL ;))
