  5. Finally, I finished my Spanis…

Finally, I finished my Spanish tree.

I started using Duolingo in 2014. I was 16 at that time and planned to complete the tree in the same year, but I was quite busy with school which totally affect my time on Duolingo. Then in 2015, I once again tried to complete the tree again, but once again I could not do it because I have a very important examination and studying was very important although I did try to finish it. After I finished my examination, I have to wait for three months until the results are ready. Basically, I finished high school already. During this time, I decided to try my best to finish the tree and I did it today. It is such a relief after finishing the tree. It's like school years when you just can't wait to finish your educations. I started learning Spanish when I was 16 on Duolingo and I finish my tree when I'm 18, I will turn 18 this year :). The journey has been so much fun, I've talked to wonderful people, got lots of new knowledge not only about Spanish but other languages as well. I would say honestly, my Spanish isn't that great, during my early years it started quite well, I understand almost everything that I learned. But, since I was rushing with my school and Duolingo at the same time, I couldn't really focus. I decided to take it easy, go with the flow and learn with my own pace. I know there are so much more to improve and learn, but I'm quite proud of myself I know more Spanish words and phrases, see how the language works, and construct sentences better. I would like to express my gratitude to Spanish team for such an amazing tree, it is a pleasure going through it and to everyone who has helped me along the way :) Sorry for long post, I just want to share my thoughts and journey on Duolingo. Muchas Gracias :)

    Felcidades! Good Work!!! I like your story! Also, don't feel like you need to rush on completing your trees, you have all the time in the world! Now since 2016 is here, lots of people are finishing their trees. Now your next goal should be to get to level 25, and finish the reverse tree! ;)

    ¡Buena suerte!

    I've finished my tree and have just been doing revisions on the modules it suggests I strengthen. What's a reverse tree? Suena interesante :)


    [deactivated user]

      a reverse tree is doing your same tree, but backwards. English for Spanish speakers.

      Thanks! Just started on it. Will I lose my streak or does it continue regardless what course you're doing on Duolingo?


      [deactivated user]

        No you won't lose your streak. No matter what language you are learning, your streak always carries over.

        Muchas Gracias :) That does sound like a great goal to do next!

        Great job! I am a young learner too and I know how hard it is to juggle school, social life, jobs, and language learning at the same time. You may keep wanting to keep studying; I've heard that bilingual people have a higher chance of getting a job ;) Good luck!!!

        Congratulations for not giving up on it. Finishing the tree is just the beginning. There is still much more to learn or become fluent. Keeping your tree all golden and doing the reverse tree are some of the things you can do. Once you finish your forward and reverse trees you can concentrate on advancing to level 25.

        First time on the site. What is a tree?


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MrAnonymous101

        A tree is what you have to complete in Duolingo - if you pass your lessons (all of them) you will have completed your 'tree'. Once you have done this, you must try and keep your tree 'golden' (all of your lessons have to be golden). I hope this helped


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Barb301700

        If they are all golden what happens. What is level 25?
