'Completed the German Skill Tree today!

I finished the German Skill Tree today at Level 25 and 62% lingual (Yeah, right!). I am going to go out and celebrate tonight at the Hofbrau with dinner and a tall beer! I have REALLY enjoyed the challenge this past year and I'm grateful to Duolingo for the opportunity. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? I'm living proof that it's possible! Onward and upward ;D

Gratulation aus Kassel. Nun beginne den Baum anders herum. Deutsch als Muttersprache und Englisch als Fremdsprache. Das bringt noch weitere neue Worte und Sätze. Viel Spaß und Erfolg.

Das ist ein sehr guter Vorschlag. Wenn ich mehr zuversichtlich werde, werde ich deinen Rat folgen. Tausend Dank!

that's the beginning of complicate grammars in german language.

August 4, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/DoreenZhang

I find German grammar to be fascinating as it is quite similar to English grammar. It is an enjoyable challenge learning it!

August 5, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/KimberlyBeenders

So I have noticed! I admire those of you who are able to learn more than one language at a time--AMAZING!

Where is Kassel located in Germany? My husband's great-grandparents came from the Ostfriesen (?) area.

Just in the middle. Between Frankfurt and Hannover. Actually we have the so called "documenta" fair of arts in town. It's the biggest art fair in the world.

Wow! Very interesting! Actually, I am of Swedish and Czechoslovakian descent but, shamefully, know little about my heritage. We have a very active German-American Society in our area however, so I just enjoy riding on my husband's coat tails.

You finished at level 25? That's really high to finish at :D

Congrats! Enjoy the Hofbrau :)

Time to do the reverse tree?

August 4, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/KimberlyBeenders

I was a teacher, so I believe in A LOT of practice--hence, Level 25. Thanks for the good wishes! I am not confident enough with my knowledge of German grammar to begin the reverse tree yet, however.

any tips?

August 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/KimberlyBeenders

"Practice makes (somewhat) perfect", and, in my case, not racing through the skill tree helps with understanding.
