First of all I want to thank everyone who made this course. I just want to say that I won't stop learning this language because I will need it in my life since I'm studying at the University of Belgrade Faculty of Philology at the Turkish language and literature department, so this has been a fun course which would hopefully give me some basic knowledge of the language before I begin with the studies next week! At the university in Serbia previous knowledge of the Turkish language isn't needed since we're learning it from the beginning(A1 to C2).

All suggestions are welcome!

Congrats, that's awesome!

I'd be curious to hear your perspective...after finishing the Turkish tree, where do you feel your skills are? Are you able to hold a conversation? Are you able to understand news and radio broadcasts and get the gist of what they're talking about, or watch a movie?

I notice your level is only 9...I don't think I had ever come close to completing a tree when I was at level 9, maybe I tend to work through things more slowly and practice more? I tend to be around 14-15ish when I finish a tree, I think?

Hi! Thanks! I am not able to hold a conversation yet but I can understand a lot. There are a lot of Turkish television shows in Serbia, so I'm quite used to the sound of the language, and there are a lot of Turkish words in the Serbian language, so I didn't have any problems with pronouncing the words nor understanding them. At the beginning of my Turkish tree I didn't study enough (30-50xp weekly), but later on I've been studying more. I've been using Memrise as well because I think that it's a good combination and you can definitely learn more words and phrases.

I am not sure what you mean by that, but level 25 is the highest level one can reach on Duolingo.
