What to do after finishing the tree?
Hello guys, i'm English student using Duolingo as new tool for my studies. I have spent just 2 days doing English exercises and now, i finished my tree. Then it popped out a frame giving congratulations to me. Okay, fine, but what's next? What can i do to keep progressing on this site since i finished all the exercises? Many may have the same doubt as me. Any constructive answer would be very appreciated. And if i did some misspelling (i always do it), please let me know.
Well make sure everything is refreshed in your mind, literally watch films in English, Read English books that kind of thing try and keep the language involved in your life then it will slowy become natural :)
I'm already doing that. Just one question: i see you are participating in many languages. Will you finish learning them all or it's just a pastime for you?
Another question: how the hell can so many people be at so high levels such as 25 or 18? I finished my tree at 10, and there's almost not anything else to do at this site
People who finished their tree's on 25 must have completed it over a longer course of time than you, I don't always have time for Duolingo because I have to study so I might leave it still on level 8 but then my activities need refreshing before I can proceed further, my guess is that you completed your tree within a shorter time period
Because even after finishing the tree, they want to keep it gilded. I've finished my German tree, but I still benefit from the Spaced Repetition System reinforcing what I've learned.
I fully intend on learning Spanish and French and German, I can already speak a fair amount of German, I'm doing Spanish for GCSE and French is beautiful and just over the channel so I think it would be useful- Italian is similar to Spainsh so I try if I have time- Swedish happened on a weird night and is just a pastime :)
Thank you dude for your answers. Now, i'm gonna study more of German using course for English speakers. Then i can keep progressing on both languages. And now and then i will refresh my English tree. Thank you again for your support and i hope you to keep progressing with your study as well. I've been studying German for more or less one year, and i know very well that's a difficult language. You must be a very smart person to study so many languages at once. To people like you i wish only success. My best regards from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Is your tree all gold? It looks like you're doing the reverse tree ( German to English ); there is a lot more you can do. If you don't mind some advice, "I" is always capitalized in English. I realize that in German one says "Ich bin Student" but in English it's "I am a student". I make a lot of grammatical errors in German, and I always am thankful to be corrected by a native speaker; the corrections seem to stay in my mind. Also, you can never practice enough in a language your really want to learn. Although my German tree has been all gold for months and I just recently finished 25, I make it a habit to practice every day, and every day I learn something new to me. That said, you're doing very good, so keep up the good work!
Thank you my brother, and thanks also for the board. I know that stuff of the capitalized "I" in English, wherever the "I" may be found in the sentence. But i'm very lazy of using the shift button all the time, so i rather let it this way. I really enjoy good tips from native english speakers and also speakers from other languages. Nobody knows everything, and it's great to see your progress and be able to talk with people from abroad. That's good see someone as you, experienced on using this site, spending time to teach beginners as me. Thx :)
