Finished the Greek tree!

First of all, Duo's awesome! I've completed the Greek skill tree! Second of all, I'd like to take this time to thank sincerely all the contributors to Greek on Duolingo. So in honor of you, here is a very special trophy in which to show my gratitude. (profile pic) :D

Thanks once more!

Congratulations :D As you have finished the tree early we will need your feedback and your reports to improve the course in the near future!

By the way, now we have the same profile pic! Don't get confused if they call you Mod :P

Thanks! I don't think there's a lot more to comment on the sentences :D

Mine is just slightly bigger :)

Congratulations! :) I'll try to finish this tree as soon as possible.

Greek is a very beautiful language!

Grecque est une tres belle langue!

Ελληνικά είναι μία πολύ όμορφη γλώσσα! :)

Did you know Greek prior to learning it here and what were the hard things in the tree for you ?

September 10, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HK-FTW

Yes (not too much :), and mainly the articles and prepositions killed me when I was typing Greek sentences :)

September 10, 2016

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

okey, yeah the articles and prepositions seem a bit hard to memorize for me too as I just started learning Greek now.

September 10, 2016

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

Those keep throwing me off too. I keep confusing object pronouns and possessive adjectives. του seems like it can mean a lot of things.

No prob. :)

September 10, 2016

Very impressive! And here I thought I was chugging along fast. For some reason, the Greek course is especially addictive.

How long does it take to get to level 25 in a language

September 10, 2016

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

Levels depend only on the amount of XP you have. So how long it takes depends on how many XP you get per day and how many days per month you practise.

September 11, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HK-FTW

Note that learning (actually) a language is more important than attaining levels :)

November 24, 2016

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

Indeed!

Which is also why I wonder why some people attach so much stock to attaining level 25. If they've finished the tree and go off to practise the language elsewhere with some method that can offer them more than Duolingo, that's surely better than to stay here and repeat repeat repeat, just to get a number next to your name!

November 24, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HK-FTW

Very well said :)

I am actually planning to practise Greek on Memrise now... will still occasionally visit the Immersion page tho

November 24, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Phil891051

Whilst I agree, the central system of Duo is small intangible rewards to keep you engaged. If you want to go elsewhere to further knowledge, it makes complete sense but if people want to stick with it here with the same set of words and phrases I think it's still a very positive thing.

November 25, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Phil891051

Very good work! I hope to join you soon, but adding in the new alphabet and no mobile version is going to slow me down I think but this adds inspiration. What are your plans now? I would find some other Greek resources if I were you but I suspect you're awaiting Swahili...

September 11, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HK-FTW

Thanks!

Nope. :) I'm in fact awaiting Czech...

September 13, 2016

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

I'm waiting for Swahili ;-) And arabic. Ah well. All in good time. Plenty to get proficient at in the meantime.

September 13, 2016

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

Well done. Don't forget to go back when all the new topics get added once its fully rolled out. I'm still going back through the additions to german. I'd love to know what it takes to be more than 50% fluent (I have French tree finished and the top half is orange, and I've done some translations but still hovering round 50% there.

We should probably be practising speaking among ourselves. The step between doing all the exercises and reading comfortably, or having a real conversation, is huge ;-)

September 12, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HK-FTW

Thank you! Yes; can't wait for the new skills!

I agree again; I find writing and listening easier than speaking :)

I'm very late - congrats!! συγχαρητήρια :-))

WOW! Already at level 25! Congratulations! I have just finished my tree and I'm only at level 11. :-)

November 22, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HK-FTW

Congrats to you as well! :)

Note that I sometimes used Greek Immersion (unofficial) as well. See https://www.duolingo.com/comment/13018570 for details.

Wow, congrats! What do you think of the Greek tree? :D

September 9, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HK-FTW

Thanks!

The tree's awesome; there are only so many (mostly minor) errors in the entire tree!

Well done you! I'm on your tracks -then again I'm Greek and I suspect so are you ;-) lol

September 9, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HK-FTW

No, I'm not Greek ;)

Congrats on your French btw!

September 10, 2016

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

In that case I tip my hat off to you, your feat is even more impressive! And congrats to you on your language collection :-D

September 10, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HK-FTW

:) Haven't touched any of the languages below lvl4 for a long time and won't be thinking of doing them anytime soon

September 10, 2016

Thank you! :)

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AlejandroP298

Congratulations (whatever that means)... Usually completing a tree just mean that.. That you completed a tree. You could be A1-A2 (very basic level) in that language, so completing it doesn't mean that you are fluent or anything, it just means that you are a very hard worker

September 10, 2016

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

I have just joined you in the finished-Greek club - that's tree number 12 for me!

September 11, 2016

Congratulations!! :)

Good job! Really! I'm talking as a native Greek speaking, who is trying to finish it, just for one reason, to make the Greek version official as soon as possible. But I didn't make it so far. It is a hard work for a non-native speaking, who starts from scratch. Very hard work, I assure you, even for me it is hard. Just report problems to the Greek team, or put them to discussion. Some native speaking can answer you for sure. I don't know how much time it takes to become a beta version official, and who decides so. It would quite important to know.

CONGRATULATIONS again!!!

Θέλω να σας ευχαρίστω για τα μαθήματα ελληνικών στο Duolinguo. Ειναι παρα πολύ καλά. Κατά τη γνώμη μου, το λεξιλόγιο εδώ είναι πολύ πλουσιό, τότε έιναι ενδιαφερον και δίσκολο. Γεια.

January 13, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Christopher0987

Congratulation ! 2 questions : what is your native language and what was your greek level when you started it through Duolingo?

January 13, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HK-FTW

Cantonese; I would say around A2-B1 when I started on Duo

January 13, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Christopher0987

So a non-european language, impressive! :)
