New Years Resolution Part 1 Completed!

Part of my New Year's resolutions for 2014 included three goals that I wanted to achieve in Duolingo. The first one was to complete the Spanish tree, and I'm excited to say that I finally did that! The second was to maintain my streak for the entire year (so far so good) and the third was to reach tier 4 in the immersion section (so far on tier 2).

If anyone else has Duolingo-centred New Year's resolutions, how are they going so far?

Congrats! I think you'll reach your second goal in no time. Those points add up pretty quickly!

My goal is to maintain a golden Spanish tree for the year, I guess move up to level....8? in the translation, and to complete the Portuguese tree. I had a 40 day streak going, but sadly had to lose it when traveling for a week to Costa Rica this year. I'll try and get it built up again :)

Congratulations! But I don't understand how people can complete trees only on Level 12… I'm Level 11 in Italian but still have aways to go.

Have fun accomplishing the rest of your goals!

I think I was on level 11 when I finished my French tree but I've been studying french at school. I'm assuming most people who finish their trees on low levels have prior knowledge of the language.

Besides having prior knowledge of the language, I guess those fast students are also natives in English. That is quite an advantage. Sometimes I have to redo lessons because prepositions in English are obstacles to me.

At least you are learning two languages at once!

My goals are to complete the French tree and get some sort of grasp on Hungarian grammar.

Well done!

My own goals is to be done with my German tree until next year and start on a Spanish tree. I don't really know if I will succeed with my first goal, but I can always give it a try :) How long did it took for you to complete your tree?

P.S. Sorry for my bad English :)

As long as you put in just a few minutes each day you will be able to reach your goals no problem :) and it took me about 6 months to complete my tree, but that is because I spent a while trying to translate articles in the immersion section before I realized that I should probably learn some more verbs and vocab by finishing the tree.

I completed my tree in 100 days, practicing two or three times a day.

I completed my English --> Spanish tree by early January. I'm on track to get up to level 25 in Spanish and complete my Spanish --> English tree well before July. The only article on my blog that I haven't used immersion to translate yet is having technical difficulties, so, assuming the tech team is able to get that ironed out in the next week or two, I'll have met that goal as well.

Good work. My Duolingo new year's resolution is to go on at least every day and try to finish my tree by next year but also practice French outside of Duolingo.

I know I have a ways to go, but I feel like this is everybody's ultimate goal, but I want to become fluent in Portuguese! I need to finish my tree, and speak with a native speaker (Luckily my schoolmates mom is a native speaker) and I just need to indulge myself in Brazilian culture such as music and movies! I have a lot to do but I know I can do it!:)
