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.
congrats! I on the other hand am less than halfway done with the german tree....
You'll get there! Honestly I would do 27 lessons a day sometimes. It takes awhile but it's worth it.
yeah I'm really focusing on the Italian tree right now. Once I finish that I will do more German.
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!
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
Hallo! Meine name ist Elyse. Ich immer have Kaffee in die Morgen. Ich mag Biologie
In german 'verb position' always remains in no. 2. e.g. Ich habe Kaffe immer im Morgen. oder Immer habe ich Kaffe im morgen.
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.
i've heard good things about italki but it costs money and i don't know if i can spend any
The tutors cost money, not the exchange. A lot of people like hello talk, I like conversation exchange (they are free).
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?
