I was a few lessons away from finishing the Norwegian tree. Then I logged on today and got the "Notice anything different..." message and saw that most of my skills are now incomplete and I am far away from the end :(

Honestly, I am very grateful for the fuller tree and all the work that went into it. There is a small part of me that wishes I just plowed through the last three skills yesterday though in the end I know this is better.

I'm curious about how this has affected other users. Especially ones who finished.

I've been finished the old tree too long and have been waiting for the new tree for too long q.q

At some point I stopped strengthening and figured that the new tree's arrival would be a great opportunity to basically work through it again from the very top. Get everything gold. But with a little bit of a head start compared to the first time. It's not a bad idea. Whenever it appears, that is.....

Some one made an interesting observation about lingots XD

It's actually kind of fun. I had to recomplete Basics 2. So far it's only one lesson to recomplete the lessons. So you get to rack up more of those ever so precious lingots :)

From 75, the new tree just expanded to 114 sets of skills in total (!). I counted the new skills, there are 39 NEW of them. I was at 37 done with 38 skills remaining, now I have 77 remaining, so probably at least 2 more months of new practice for me. Lots of stuff, so thanks a lot to the Norsk Duolingo creation team. Takk !!

I'm really excited to have it although I am nowhere near finished! Although the tree may look really colorful from what I can tell there are usually only one or two new lessons per skill (excluding the entirely new skills of course). I understand how you feel though because I had finished my German tree when it got updated last year but I was totally cool with it because it meant that I had more German to learn on Duolingo.

I didn't get any messages other than one saying thirty + new lessons had been added to my tree. I've just been going through them now to get the lessons I had completed back to golden. I think this is great though and I'm looking forward to having more Norwegian lessons! :)

There was a white banner on the home page when I opened it announcing the new update.

So far the changes in the lessons I've gone through were really good. I also like that here are new lessons.

Yes, I had mixed feelings about getting it too. I wasn't especially close to the end though much closer to the end than the beginning. I would have felt the same way you had if I had been that close to the end. I purposely finished my Dutch tree up a bit more quickly than I maybe would have knowing 2.0 is coming for that as my plan with Dutch is to do a big review when the new tree is out.


Now that I am doing it, I am actually quite enjoying it. Most of it feels like review, but I can still see why said modules were added so far.

I finished the tree only a few days ago and now most of my skills are incomplete again. A lot of them are only 1 lesson away from being complete, but some are now only 1 or 2 lessons that are complete and some are totally not complete anymore. I just look at it as more to learn and do. ;)

I've got it too. I wasn't very far along in the tree, a bit past the first checkpoint. Up to this point there's one new skill in the earlier part of the tree, and half a dozen skills have gained an extra lesson. I wonder if I need to recomplete the earlier part of the tree to continue on down, or if it's enough to complete the last row I've reached. (I'll recomplete them in any case; I can use the practice)

Odd - I completed the last row (one lesson each - easy lingots) and the next row is indeed unlocked - and one of the skills in it is already completed...
