I finished the German tree!

I've been taking German in school for the last two years, so I had a bit of a leg-up (and a dictionary!). Nonetheless, I'm really happy that I got so far so soon; the tree took me 45 days.

Now to start Dutch!

Hey, find ich richtig cool dass du es in nur 45 Tagen geschafft hast! Ich bin jetzt 8 Tage dran und habe noch nicht sehr viel geschafft. Egal, ab jetzt bist du mein Vorbild! Wenn du es geschafft hast, deutsch in nur 45 Tagen zu lernen, dann bin ich gespannt, wie lange du für Dänisch brauchst!!! P.S.: Und kannst du mir auch verraten, was dieses Spiritual oder so weiter am Ende des Lernbaumes ist? Das wär sehr cool.

Viel Spaß beim weiteren Lernen!!!

Congratulations! Have you considered the reverse tree yet?

No, I haven't! I think I'll do it in about 10 months, after I've finished German 3 at my school.

Ah, danke! I tend to forget how word order works with phrases such as that.

June 6, 2016

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

Kein Problem! Yeah, word order can be a pain in the arse, right? Haha, I've managed to remember that "dass" always sends the verb to the end of the clause thankfully!

Dutch ist Niederländisch und nicht Dänisch.

Das habe ich doch glatt verwechselt, das tut mir leid! Dann wünsche ich eben viel Spaß mit der niederländischen Sprache!

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sarahlp6409

From what I can tell so far, it's very similar to German, and only having one indefinite article (so far) is quite nice!

I hear that dutch is like German with a potato in your mouth, so I hope you like potatoes.

Pretty cool, I finished my spanish tree in 2 months or so. Congrats!

I'm sorry to ask, but is it possible to finish a whole tree and stay in level 13? I mean, I'm into about 70% of the course and am level 11.

June 6, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sarahlp6409

Yeah, I guess you could stay at Level 13 after finishing the tree. My level is likely to go up over time as I review this tree, but if you don't practice your level will stay the same.

Does this answer your question? I'm not quite sure I understood it.

June 6, 2016

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

Kinda. I just thought that people who finished the whole tree up be at level 25, cause this is the final level. And I thought that it would go up as developing the tree. And I was surprised you finished it and is only level 13.

June 7, 2016

It's probably because they keep reviewing old lessons after finishing them until they understand the material before moving on. You also have to review lessons again over time from them changing from gold. One more thing, the German tree is huge.

June 9, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sarahlp6409

For a while I thought I was going to finish at level 12. I'm probably going to finish Dutch at level 11 or so, just because the tree is so comparatively short.

June 7, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/bob712010

good for you i have only done 1 month and only 24% fluent

June 6, 2016

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

I started in 2014, stopped for 3 years, and started from the top. It was fun, 22% through and level 6. Once I finish this giant tree I will do more in Spanish and French.

Did you finish the three on only 45 days? :O How much did you practice everyday?

June 5, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sarahlp6409

Well, my daily goal is set at 20 XP, so some days (especially near the beginning of my 45 day haul, when I was in school) I only did 2 lessons. However, for the past ~3 weeks, I've been doing anywhere between 5 and 100 lessons, including Welsh and French.

How do you increase your language level once you have finished the tree???

June 6, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sarahlp6409

As far as I can tell, one must go back in the tree and review.

I would've probably finished the tree as a Level 12 (or maybe even 11!) had I not reviewed as much.

You should fly to germany to test your skills

June 7, 2016

I was actually in the running for an AATG program that would allow me to go to Germany for 3 weeks and live with a host family for free. However, I didn't make it past the interview stage.

You should do the reverse tree.
