I just reached the lvl 25 in english, what's the next step?
I just reached the lvl 25 in english, what's next step? I thought that would be the last lvl on a language on Duolingo, have you guys overtaken the lvl 25 on a language on Duolingo?
TIA, André Vieira
Well, now you just have to chill. It's like you just got out of your parent's house. You've got a tiny furnished flat. Now you work your way up to the top. You have to earn it, baby. The grammar will be your CV and the vocabulary will be your charisma at work. Do never stop using the language. It doesn't matter if you're not the type of guy who - like me - talks to himself to train English, but at least try to keep up by either studying when you can and anything that fits you, or watching films with or without subtitles, or reading sites or blogs, maybe when feeling confident you can read UK and US newspapers about whatever you fancy, although it will obviously be a bit hard, so hang in there, mate! Important thing here is to never let it go.
If you want sites that could help you though. WLINGUA is quite cool, but you may see things that you've already seen before, so it might be boring at the beginning. And it's paid. HelloTalk is pretty good too, but no lessons, just a Yahoo-like app based on languages. Try to study phrasal verbs now, they're so important in daily basis conversation but Duolingo couldn't add them up anyways because the course would then be too long and laborious. Idioms might come in hand too. But to be honest, I think you should watch videos or read articles about them, as most apps gather too many idioms and many of them not even native speakers have ever heard of.
Thanks for the reply. Yes, I'm currently using english all day... but just chat/email... my most difficulties are on speaking... that's what I want to keep focus on.
Not really, lol. I'm fluent in English and Portuguese is my mother tongue, but that's all by now. I'm learning Japanese now and in the future I'll learn French. After that, I can't tell what's going to happen xD
Cool...japanese should be hard no? i love english linguage...i'm not fluence but i find a way it
Japanese is hard. But I find it really attractive, smart and polite, so I like it a lot, plus it's sort of a challenge for me xD. You might no be fluent in English now, but if you never give it up, I reassure you your effort will eventually pay off, mate. Best of luck!
I think it's only the 25 levels to complete the tree. Don't have next step o.o
I won't earn XP anymore? It's a bit obscure what to do... should I keep training even more? What's the duolingo's proposal?
Your XP will keep increasing if you keep strengthening skills or doing any lesson. But your level will now go past level 25. Sometimes new lessons are added to the course so you have the chance to do them, sometimes some lessons will not anymore be gold so you strengthen them. As for now, you have a 341-days-streak, so I'd suggest you not leaving Duolingo (unless you don't really fancy staying), you could always do the reverse course (Portuguese From English), or at least finish the tree, doing 10 XP a day just to keep your streak, or start a new course if you wish.
