I have reached level 25 in Norwegian!
I have finally reached the top after nearly a year of learning Norwegian here. I always wanted to write a longer post, but somehow it just ends up smaller than I wanted too. If you have any questions for me just ask.
There are numerous people I want to thank for helping me on the way. There are too many to list here, but you know who you are:) amaratea, you really pushed me to reach level 25, whether you realize that or not! I'm pretty sure that we have become the first non - native or non - hackers to reach level 25.
Thanks again to everyone. Good luck in reaching level 25!
Congratulations on reaching level 25! I hope to one day reach level 25 in Norwegian and I know it takes a lot of hard work and time to achieve it. It took me a year and a half to reach level 25 for German. I hardly see anyone with a level 25 Norwegian flag so you are definitely one of the first non-native speakers to reach it.
Gratulerer, du har virkelig stått på! Håper du får bruk for og glede av norskkunnskapene :D
Looking forward to seeing your thread for reaching translation tier 25! ;)
No, nobody's hit the translation tier roof yet, so we don't know how high it is.
How many xp do they get each time they upvote something at that point? 1000? :p
Congratulations to both you and amaratea! I will catch you some day! :-D
Great job!!! I just started to focus on Norwegian after working on Spanish and I love the language! I hope that someday I'll be joining you at Level 25!!! Congrats again!
Congratulations! I will be learning Norwegian in the future too. What level do you think you have reached thanks to Duolingo? Did you use any other methods? Good job again.
Thanks:) I think I'm around B2 - C1 now, but I reached B1 with Duolingo. Reading newspapers, books, listening to radio has helped me improve my level.
I'd say I am between B1 and B2 but I never really understood these divisions. In written I am able to speak about various topics for a long time, in speaking I have troubles understanding natives but that must be naturally the hardest for most learners, and - I - speak - like - this. Duolingo Norwegian is a very profound course.
Tried to post but it's not working. Thank you very much to you too. It's nice to see people who share the same passion.
Congrats man! :) As for non-natives and non-hackers, I'm sorry to tell you that dkahn400 beat all of us to it months ago, but that doesn't lessen your achievement of course. Keep up the good work :)
Thanks! Gratulerer også:) I didn't notice you are level 25 in all your languages!
Takk! It's fairly new and it kind of raises the question "now what?" but I'm working on it ;)
Right back at ya ;) Why does it say here you're on level 24 in Dutch? Normally I'd think you learn the same language from 2 different ones, but there's only 1 Dutch course. Hmm..
Congratulation, Alec, well done :) It was really fun, and you made the last bit of levelling exciting also :D
Thank you....Right now I have no specific question, but I do need to vent and could use some encouragement. I may be at level 19, but my spoken and listening skills are at minus 10. After 6 months, I am just starting to pick up some things from NRK.org when I listen. Yet I need visuals and/or norwegian subtitles to help my comprehension. This is my first dedicated attempt to learn another language. I know every one learns at different rates also, but I do not live in Norway so I have to keep motivated and sometimes I question why not learn spanish as it would be more practical here in US.
I hear you, Jercia. I can't help thinking maybe I had a stupidly optimistic idea that I could finish the tree, start watching a Norwegian programme and just "get it", although deep down I know it just doesn't work like that. So now I'm just managing my expectations better, taking my time and just immersing myself in it - doesn't matter if you have subtitles on, every little bit of exposure is useful. There are also some really good films and programs out there, so it doesn't have to feel like a chore!
Oh no it is not a chore or I would have stopped a long time ago. I love listening to this language. Of late, i'm rewatching occupied on Netflix and have been laughing with Ylvis i Kveld on youtube.
If you go onto youtube and type in something like "Norwegian tv shows" or movies, many videos have subtitles enabled now. When you confidence improves, you can disable them:)
And for speaking, there is a number of language exchange apps available, such as Italki.
Congratulations! XD I'm planning to learn Norwegian after I finish with my current trees (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧
Well done, Alec! Excellent! http://www.imgion.com/images/01/Congratulation-Colour-.gif
Wow, congratulations on that! For non immersion courses, it seems nearly impossible!
Hi well done in reaching level 25 I finished my French tree recently but I am still at level 11 / 60%. How does that work please?
The level solely depends on the number of xp you have earned by learning and practising a language.
