how long does it generally take to finish a course on Duolingo ???

I started taking German 2 weeks ago and I have been trying to see if I can maybe finish before the end of the summer. I have a friend that is fluent, and it would be really cool if I could have conversations with him.

Any advice??

If you already have level 7, you're doing pretty good. How far are you down the tree?


I have just finished animals 1, not really sure what the tree is; but I am kind of assuming that is what you mean

    Course = Tree.


    I think it depends on how much time you have to spare and how fast you want to go while still absorbing what your learning. I started learning German 3 days ago and I have just finished Animals 1 also, but I have lots of spare time with school being out.. Again, I think it all depends on how fast you feel like you can go. One question though. . .how fluent does it tell you that you are in German? Mine says that I'm 24% fluent and that does not sound right. :-\
