'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

Das ist ja toll -- herzlichen Glückwunsch zu Deinem Erfolg! Da hast Du Dir Dein großes Bier wirklich verdient. Prost!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BuddeKaren

Glückwünsche! Ich auch im diesem Jahr.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KimberlyBeenders

Danke. Und das Beste zu dir auch!

Das is Super! Congratulations!

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.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KimberlyBeenders

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


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MichaelRos591172

"deinem Rat folgen" or "deinen Rat befolgen" ;-)

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


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DoreenZhang

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


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KimberlyBeenders

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


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KimberlyBeenders

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


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MichaelRos591172

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.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KimberlyBeenders

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.

Congrats! I'm on my way there :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KimberlyBeenders

Thanks! Keep up the good work!

Thumbs up, old dog :-) Level 25 should be worth more than just one beer.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KimberlyBeenders

LOL! Danke schon!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/King2E4

Ich hoffe du hast die Erfahrung gemocht. Was willst du von jetzt an machen?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KimberlyBeenders

Ja! Ich habe es sehr gemocht. Und Ich werde den Vorschlagen anderer auf Duolingo folgen (You Tube, German movies, books, etc.). Danke.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/King2E4

Klingt gut. Gern geschehen.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lorel90

Gut gemacht!!! Have a wonderful time at the Hofbrau.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KimberlyBeenders

Danke schon! Ich hatte eine shone Zeit!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DoreenZhang

Super Leistung!! Congratulations! Enjoy your evening!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DoreenZhang

Gern Geschehen!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bob20020

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

Congrats! Enjoy the Hofbrau :)

Time to do the reverse tree?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/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.

Congratulations!!!

Das is super! Great job.

i give you lingot :)

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