German Tree is Conquered; Thanks Duo!

Just wanted to share, like so many here do after felling their tree. It is an exciting moment.

I have to confess I stopped gilding my tree a short while back due to it autumning too fast. That said, I feel I've learned quite a bit over the course of the tree and know there is a lot more to learn here on Duolingo and elsewhere.

I'm still going to stick with German and try to improve it further through additional material. I'll hang around here practicing existing lessons and helping in the discussion forums when possible.

But it's been a fun experience. So thanks, Duo and the Duolingo Team, and everyone else that took time to help me learn something new!

Congratulations on your accomplishment. Have you considered doing the reverse tree? A Lingot for you.

Very kind. Thank you, buck72! Yes, I'm considering doing the reverse tree before I switch to an entirely different language as it'll get me to write more in German.

Congratulations! And what do you mean with a reverse tree?

February 13, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/satishvc

Thank you. I learnt German with English as my base language. The reverse tree would be learning English with German as the base language, the point being it makes me write more in German (even though I'm fluent in English).

I am far from completing the tree but I feel that for some of the harder grammar concepts itäs easier to just understand the rules then to compare it to English..

February 10, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/satishvc

Sure. That's one way to approach it.

You must have mastered German very dedicatedly. :)

February 10, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/satishvc

I have persevered, yes. Mastery is still far off. I've mainly focused on comprehension, but there's a lot that I need to learn yet to call myself fluent. For now, I'm still a beginner and a learner.

Thanks for the wishes and offer. I already do have a German friend. I'd take you up on the offer if I weren't pressed for time. I will add you as a friend on here. Maybe we will end up writing back and forth sometime. :)

How about some Spanish? It's both fun and practical. It's also fairly easy, the word order is just often different from that of English. But, doing German, you should be prepared for that...

February 11, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/satishvc

That was suggested to me just today by a cousin of mine. It is indeed practical, since I live in the US. Thank you for the suggestion.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! wow it's still a LOOONG way for me to complete the tree T_T haha but i'm enjoying every little thing i learn :) May i ask how long did you take to complete the tree? approximately?

February 11, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/satishvc

Thank you! Yes, the key is to pace oneself and to enjoy the course. I might have spent a total of about 2 months in all, but I took a long break in between since I had a ton of other things going on in life.
