How do you get to level 25?
I just finished the Hebrew course (just for fun - I'm completely fluent) and I'm still only on level 12, even though I'm almost all in gold. but i've seen people at level 25. How do you do that?
I also got 12 when I took the Hebrew placement test, and there were about 5-6 skills left until the end of the tree. So I finished the Hebrew tree when I was on level 13. Then - reviewing all the skills again and again, again and again. For me that is less boring than immersion :)))) i don't feel like immersion somehow helps me
you reached level 25 on many many languages. you are awesome. have a nice day!
The level you are on depends on how much XP you have, so to level up you need to gain more XP. You can get XP by completing lessons and strengthening topics. It takes a lot of time and effort to get onto Level 25, but it isn't impossible! :)
You can find out how much XP you have by clicking on your username at the top of the screen, then click on your profile. On the right hand side you will see all the languages you are learning, how much XP you have for each one, and how much XP you need to reach the next level.
I realize that. It's just funny to see that my level of Russian is "higher" than Hebrew, which I'm fluent in :-)
thanks. I think I'd find it boring to do it all again. As it was, most of my mistakes were because my correct answers were not yet accepted in beta. Reported a lot of them. Let's see what happens when I complete Russian... That may take a lot more time. שבוע טוב (means "have a good week" In Hebrew)
Reaching level 25 by now in Hebrew would have meant getting about 1000XP per day on every day since the course was released—not impossible, but difficult. I suspect it's likely that at least some of the level 25 Hebrew flags one sees are the result of unscrupulous use of an immersion bug to falsely inflate a language's level without actually practising it.
Tsufit, I just started to learn Hebrew, but I am fluent in Russian. Do you want to trade lessons? I need to start practicing Hebrew
This is a Hebrew immersion article, you can translate it to English and it gives you XP to level up.
Can you tell which sentences are translated or do you have to click through all of them to see it?
I clicked on "proofread" and scrolled through the translation. You see blank spaces where the sentences are not translated
Basically, XP means time/effort spent on learning a language, not actual competency. For example, of the three languages I have at level 16, only in Russian and Esperanto have I actually completed the tree; German I'm still miles away.
XP is earned regardless of whether one is progressing down the tree. It would be deadly boring, but it would be possible to reach a high level simply by repeating the introductory lessons. On the other hand, if someone completed the tree without repeating/revising any individual lesson - I suspect what you have done, as a fluent speaker? - then they would earn only the bare minimum XP.
TL;DR: XP (which is how the levels are calculated) is how much effort one has expended on a language, it has no relation to how good you are at the language.
