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!
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!
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.
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...
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 ;-)
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
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.
