What level does the Norwegian tree finish at?

I mean out of A1, A2, B1, etc. And if anyone has finished the tree, are there any tips for what you can do to learn more after the tree is done?

Hey there,

Norwegian course contributor here.

Language learning is composed of four skills: reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Progress depends on many factors (personality, motivation, time with the language, use of extra resources, etc) Here's the approximate breakdown:

  • Reading: ~A2/B1 = many students are able to read and understand the gist of a relatively simple newspaper article after finishing the course.
  • Writing: ~A2 = the course doesn't teach you to write creatively, so although your grammar would be improved over an absolute beginner, you need to write on your own and seek corrections in order to improve that skill.
  • Speaking: ~A1 = the course itself doesn't teach speaking, so how good you are kind of depends on how much you say the material out loud or how confident you are in reproducing the grammar patterns, etc.
  • Listening: ~A2 = listening is an important skill that's covered to a certain degree, but in my belief, not as much as it should be. By the way, the choice of exercises falls out of the control of us contributors.

I've heard that you will probably be at B1 at the end of a Duolingo course.

If you strengthen enough, B1. If you use enough other sources and talk with people, in a year two daily you could be B2. But it would take a while.
