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, Alec!

Looking forward to seeing your thread for reaching translation tier 25! ;)

April 16, 2016

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

That's not the highest though, is it?

No, nobody's hit the translation tier roof yet, so we don't know how high it is.

April 16, 2016

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

My guess is 1000!

It'll take a long time for anyone to get that far to find out. :-)

To Deliciae. WarriorCleberz is on level 503.

Still 5/uv, it doesn't get higher after tier 4.

How many xp do they get each time they upvote something at that point? 1000? :p

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!

April 16, 2016

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

Thanks:) You'll get there eventually:)

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.

April 16, 2016

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

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.

April 16, 2016

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

Nice! Thank you :).

April 16, 2016

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

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.

April 16, 2016

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

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.

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

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 :)

April 16, 2016

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

Thanks! Gratulerer også:) I didn't notice you are level 25 in all your languages!

April 16, 2016

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

Takk! It's fairly new and it kind of raises the question "now what?" but I'm working on it ;)

April 16, 2016

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

Five languages at 25 - a magnificent achievement!

April 16, 2016

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

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..

April 16, 2016

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

My Dutch level shows as 24 sometimes and 25 sometimes. Even though I have 31 000 XP :( Have contacted team Dutch but they cannot seem to resolve it. No problem as Duo is not a competition, we are an international community of language learners.

April 17, 2016

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

Congratulation, Alec, well done :) It was really fun, and you made the last bit of levelling exciting also :D

April 16, 2016

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

Well done to you too:) I needed that extra push:)

April 16, 2016

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

Bra for deg! Jeg vil fortsette å prøve. Kanskje du kan jhelpe me :)

April 16, 2016

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

Takk:) Hvis du har et spørsmål eller du trenger hjelp, du kan spørre meg:)

April 16, 2016

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

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.

April 16, 2016

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

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!

April 19, 2016

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

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.

April 26, 2016

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

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:)

April 16, 2016

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

And for speaking, there is a number of language exchange apps available, such as Italki.

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?

November 4, 2017

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

The level solely depends on the number of xp you have earned by learning and practising a language.
