Question About Trees for Different Languages

Hi. I'm currently learning French and I'm about a quarter of the way through the French tree. After completing this tree, I plan on learning a few other languages on Duolingo. I was just wondering if every tree is the same length and whether or not they all contain the same skills/lessons. Or does it vary depending on the language?

Thank you!

Depends on the language. Depends on which A/B group you are in.

No two trees are exactly the same - trees are built in ways that are supposed to be beneficial specifically for that language. Same goes for length.

Actually, all the trees are different, and I'd say the weirdest tree is Vietnamese

The Guarani (Jopara) tree is actually way weirder than Vietnamese. =)

It varies a lot depending on the language. Some languages try to teach a new alphebet first so you can actually read and write it (Greek, Russian, Ukrainian). Others don't have a lesson on gender because they don't have gender (like Turkish or Hungarian). And others still are a lot longer than some when compared (cough, cough Welsh cough, cough). It really depends on a lot of things. But no two trees are exactly the same.
