  5. Completed German Tree!!

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

Completed German Tree!!

After a little less than a year I have completed the tree! I changed my profile picture because I am so happy! It was a lot of hard work but it was all worth it, I can understand some German now, and with more practice I'll be fluent. It is possible to finish trees! Thank you duolingo for all the help. I just need to continue learning now.

I just wanted to mention that I completed my Dutch tree today too!

Yay! Congratulations

congrats! I on the other hand am less than halfway done with the german tree....


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

You'll get there! Honestly I would do 27 lessons a day sometimes. It takes awhile but it's worth it.


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

yeah I'm really focusing on the Italian tree right now. Once I finish that I will do more German.


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

That's what I did. I focused on one tree at a time

That is also what im doing with german and irish.


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

I think that might be pushing it but anyway great picture!

Just got done with checkpoint 3, hard to keep everything in touch. Still working on it, good luck to you as well!

    I have learned German for a year outside Duolingo and I have completed the German tree.

    From my experience, I can tell you that while Duolingo is fantastic for vocabulary, you really need to look for other resources to learn the grammar (especially with German).

    The word order is especially important, the sentence below is a good example of how the word order can seem a bit crazy for an English speaker.

    Wenn du gut Deutsch sprechen willst, musst du die Grammatik gut verstehen!

    Danke! that is definitely something i need to work on

      Bitte! Great work though, I wish you the best of luck with your future studies. I'm so happy to see you learning northern european languages too <3

      Du kannst es auch, wenn du fest daran glaubst! :D

      Congratulations!!! Try to talk in German.

      Hallo! Meine name ist Elyse. Ich immer have Kaffee in die Morgen. Ich mag Biologie


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/matfran2001

      Mein Name.....habe.....im Morgen....


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

      I meant to say habe, and i constantly forget to capitalize


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

      In german 'verb position' always remains in no. 2. e.g. Ich habe Kaffe immer im Morgen. oder Immer habe ich Kaffe im morgen.


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

      oh okay, thank you! i definitely need to work on sentence structure


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lorel90

      Hallo elyselop. Gut, try to talk and write, do not worry about perfection. You can get a partner using an app like Hello Talk or conversation exchange, italki to practice your German.


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

      i've heard good things about italki but it costs money and i don't know if i can spend any


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lorel90

      The tutors cost money, not the exchange. A lot of people like hello talk, I like conversation exchange (they are free).


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

      it is? i had no idea


      [deactivated user]

        Herzlichen Glückwunsch!

        congrats! what is your native language?


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

        My native language is english


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

        Herzlichen Glückwunsch! Ich wünsch' dir viel Glück mit Schwedisch.


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

        Danke! Ich ist Glücklich, das ich getan werde


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

        Herzlichen Glückwunsch! Ich liebe Deutsch aber es ist sehr schwer! I hope i can complete the tree but then after that i think i might sign up for a German course in the city. Do you have any tips or pointers that might be helpful?


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

        Coeffee.com is a site that you can use to speak with people of the language you want to learn. It's also free, which is awesome. Other than that just practice everyday. Find German books and movies (netflix you can change the language) that should help


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

        GOOD JOB. KEEP GOING.
