Okay, so I have a depressingly noob-like question, even though I've been on Duo for a little while...

So I saw a few people saying that you can finish your tree at different levels. Can you finish your tree at level 14, 17, 22, or another level? How does that work? I thought I saw something that looked like there was a difference between the level you finish your tree at and level 25...

So now I'm just really confused. I know different trees are different lengths, but they were talking about the same language.

Thanks, and sorry for being such a noob :P

There's no relationship between trees and levels really. A tree is measured by skills completed and levels by XP. Related but not the same.

You can work on a tree slowly, and hit the Level 25 "max out" XP before you finish. Or you can blaze through a tree and not repeat much and finish at almost any level: 11, 15, 22, whatever.

They are based on XP, which varies how you practice.

Here is a list of them (Level - XP Needed To Advance - Total XP After)

1 - 60 → 60

2 - 60 → 120

3 - 80 → 200

4 - 100 → 300

5 - 150 → 450

6 - 300 → 750

7 - 375 → 1,125

8 - 525 → 1,650

9 - 600 → 2,250

10 - 750 → 3,000

11 - 900 → 3,900

12 - 1,000 → 4,900

13 - 1,100 → 6,000

14 - 1,500 → 7,500

15 - 1,500 → 9,000

16 - 1,500 → 10,500

17 - 1,500 → 12,000

18 - 1,500 → 13,500

19 - 1,500 → 15,000

20 - 2,000 → 17,000

21 - 2,000 → 19,000

22 - 3,500 → 22,500

Oh... thank you so much, for some reason, I didn't know that :O

Is finishing your tree at a lower level generally better?

It just means that you've practised less. It doesn't really matter, everybody needs their own amount of review and practising until every lesson is understood.

What Science_Yay says.

It depends on the difficulty of a language, too. If you're Spanish, and you're doing Portuguese, you can finish you tree at level 12, and still doing quite well. I have just finished my Turkish tree, while at level 14, and I feel I'm still at an early beginner's level.

If you do immersion you gain a lot of Xps so it is possible to get to 25 without finishing the tree. To get to 25 by doing only the tree is very difficult, you need a lot of repetition with immersion it is relatively fast. For many of us the goal is to finish the tree and reach the highest level, which is 25.

Immersion is not available for most languages though

Well, you will level up when you've gained enough XP. The amount of XP you get depends on how much you review and strenghten the skills. So if you never review but just walk straight through the tree without ever going back, you'll reach the end with a much lower level than someone who tries to keep their tree golden by reviewing all the time

Levels are based on points. You can repeat lesson one and eventually get enough points to get to level 25. Finishing a tree means you completed all the lessons, which many/most people do at about level 10-14, I'd guess.
