After 766 days, it is finally complete...

German Tree complete in 766 days - 5 Feb 2014 –> 12 Mar 2016

It took me a very long time, but I finally have my first golden owl - German!

Thank you to Luis and Severin for creating such a wonderful idea for a website, to all the Duolingo Incubator volunteers for keeping such a high standard of course not just in German but in every other language, and also the Duolingo community - they always had answers to questions when I was stuck!

Thank you everyone for your outpouring of congratulations :) I'm going to tackle Dutch next, and then Welsh (or Swahili if that finishes Incubating in time).

Wunderbar! German was my first completed tree as well, and it is still my favorite. I keep it golden every day. Congrats on your accomplishment!

Thanks! And as a side note - I'm sure I've seen you with an Esperanto flag next to your name before... where did it go?

I'm focusing on finishing the German tree now, and as soon as I am done, I will start the Esperanto tree again.

Herzlichen Glückwunsch! Strebst Du auch noch Level 25 für das Deutsche an, oder genügt Dir der goldene Baum?

March 12, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mathso2

Danke! Mein Baum ist immer golden :) Aber ja, ich werde Immersion benutzen sodass ich Level 25 sein kann :)

Thank you! I think the inspirational message my tree story should convey is don't worry if you're not the fastest learner, you'll get there eventually :) Good luck with your tree!

Wow congratulations!! :)))) I just have one question for you : after finishing the Tree, How is your German now . I mean in what level are you and what should be your next step ? . Thanks in avance!

March 14, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mathso2

I have reached around a B2 level on the CEFR scale, but I have been using Duolingo in conjunction with face to face classes, so Duolingo isn't the only thing I have been using. With just Duolingo, I would estimate that I might be around a B1 My next step is to go over the whole thing again to reach Level 25 :)

Felicidades! Aunque no acabo de comprender cómo funciona lo del "german tree"... Which level is that? And how many levels does german Duolingo course have? Just one week on Duolingo!

March 14, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mathso2

The German Tree is basically the set of skills on the homepage of Duolingo when you are learning German. There are 123 skills, and the maximum level you can reach is 25 (although level is based on XP not skills). Good luck with both your courses :)

Thank you! It' difficult for me to find time for Duolingo at home, so I don't use the computer version as often as I' d like... :-( Again, thank you for the information!!!

It's the same on the phone/tablet, tree is synonymous with course.
