Just wanted to make an appreciation post to the many hard workers on this new tree! I love this new vocabulary. It's really helpful and brings light to start working on the tree again, because I finished it, and surely the same it does to many others. Good work!!!

So the tree WAS updated! Good to know... it threw me for a loop there. :) (Always happy to keep learning, of course.)

Well.... Thank you for updating the tree to improving the learning experience. And I am sure that I will learn so much more and get into it once I begin. But I do have to tell you that I now remember how it felt to be my three year old son, when he was so proud of himself that he had completely mastered that Tricycle!!!! The opportunity to move up to the two wheeled version seems a little daunting to me right now. :)

Hear, hear! I'm also a huge fan of the greater diversity of vocabulary, and also the logic with which lessons like plurals are taught, and the increased number of english --> german speaking exercises! Thanks, team! <3

I love the new German Tree. It's much appreciated. The additions are practical and very helpful. I was already in the last part of the tree so I have to redo a lot of exercises now to make everything gold again, but it is definitely worth it. Thanks for the nice gift.

Having completed the German tree I was totally confused to suddenly see so much material that I had apparently not yet learned so I am glad to see here that it is deliberate. Thanks to all those who do the work that goes into this. With the new material German is no longer lazing away on the back-burner but in focus again. Thanks!

Normally I wouldn't mind the update, but I was more than halfway through the tree already, so this is kind of a major setback for me in terms of completing the tree by a certain deadline (which was my goal).

I was disappointed that my Duo has disappeared because of the new German tree. And I find it difficult to look for the uncomplete sections right now - the ones with 0 are easy to find but there are also sections with only one new part.

I like the fact that the end is not the end. I had only just completed the tree when the update appeared, so I didn't have time to get bored. I'm a little confused though because, when I open a "new" secton marked e.g. 3/5, it lets me do one part and then tells me I have completed all of them, although I'm sure there is vocabulary there that I have not just practiced. Is it just me this is happening to?

I have the same problem! Is it better now?

No, but I'm close to completing the tree again, and perhaps the parts that I couldn't access will open up after that. I'll keep you posted.

Hi Grumpy, I completed the tree again, then left it for a day to see if anything interesting would happen. It didn't. Now, I'm going to see if I can keep it gold for a while. After that, I'm out of ideas.
