The Activity stream was good to communicate

This element is still here with us in the bell

So you can wish well to your friend via the Bell

Just type as usual on the stream and it will arrive

Prolific users will lack the volume but five bells

five bells is more than enough for the majority

that works if the message is not too long.....and if the recipient has email notifications you can respond to those. Old messages from e-mail will work as well. Simply click "go to activity". Thank you Jack : )

Hallo to you Adam : ) yes, I will happily explain aber I must do so here as there is no room for additional replies above. Why reset a tree? Because once is not enough. Is all about repetition and practice....over and over and over until your response becomes automatic. You need to have those words right where you want them. This is the only way to begin to think in your target language. Consider when a baby first begins to speak, they learn a word and repeat it almost continuously.....they master it....make it their own. This is the way we learn our mother tongue, so....is the logical way to learn a new language, yes?

Also, I find it a challenge to reset my trees.....I like to test myself. Can I complete all the lessons without a single mistake? How fast can I complete them? Can I effectively test out of all the skills? Then I go to the reverse tree and do the same. Then I challenge myself further to see if I can add another language to the mix with a ladder tree...say for example Spanish for German speakers. Is all about testing my limits....I want to know what is possible.

lol, unfortunately when my PennyWhistler account passed the one million mark for xp I became reluctant to reset trees on that account. Is silly of me really....and more than a little vain but I just can't do it. So, I choose to work on a practice account mostly. I have several for different purposes and it is a solution that works very well for me. Oh! also every time you redo a tree you gain a deeper understanding as well and learn words that you might have missed the first time around. With some language trees just going through the lessons once will not even present all the words to you. I guess that they are created with the understanding that one will be doing the exercise multiple times. I still occasionally get new sentences even after going through some of the trees dozens of times. lol, sorry if I have gotten carried away here......I do talk a lot ; )

Haha, thanks :) I guess you could say I go through trees multiple times... on my one account :)

Thank you for the comprehensive explanation! The having multiple accounts makes a lot of sense if you like to see if you can test out of whole trees, etc. I suppose I could see giving that a go myself, but I wouldn't want to do it on my primary account because reviews get so much more useful as I go along. For instance, about half my reviews in GuaranĂ­ are translations into GuaranĂ­, that elusive translation into target language everyone seems to want more of, and of course there's no reverse tree. But in languages where I'm less far along I get the typical overwhelming majority into English.

Admittedly, though, having never reset anything, I merely suppose that this benefit would be lost. Any observations on that point?
