I started the Duolingo course forty days ago. (I started not as a beginner. I had a good exposure to the language starting some years ago.) I set myself a 50 xp per day goal. I think that generally I was going through the course with a speed well above my daily goal. The level I am now is 10. I intend to keep practicing at a lower pace. I find that this Duolingo course is a good introduction to the language.

Hey there! Congratulations! I've finished the Turkish tree too and then I started the reverse tree. I found that helps me pick a lot of new words too! And now with the crowns, I can practice skills from the Turkish tree at different levels so that is another thing that totally works for me. One thing that I'd suggest you do is join one of the Turkish clubs on Duolingo and try answering the dailquestions in Turkish. That helps you develop your sentence-phrasing skills. :)

Hey Tehsin,

Thank you for the information. For the time being I am on going through other languages but I'll return to the Turkish language soon. You are Turkish, isn't it? How come you are going through the Turkish course on Duolingo?

Hey there! Sorry, I don't know how my reply to this one got so delayed! :O I'm not Turkish. :) I got interested in the language after I watched some Turkish drama clips on YouTube.

Good luck with the other languages and do drop a note when you come back to Turkish. Cheers!

Wow, congrats ^-^ I'm still at the beginning (without experience, and so far) and sometimes feel desperate when I realize how it's difficult (for -> meh <-) x'D but I think that all languages have something that we don't know and that this only makes them more special -

I hope someday I will be able to finish C=

Hey,

There is no reason to feel desperate. Learning languages makes one happy. I learn languages as a hobby. Many languages. I use materials from various sources. Duolingo is just one of them.

In a few cases the knowledge I have is not so deep. (say about 2000 words). Yet it is some knowledge and it is a basis to probably build upon in the future.

Whenever I find it worthwhile I go deeper. For example, last year I bought an audio-book and I read Tolstoy's Anna Karenina in Russian. (a coscise version of around 50 pages). Without pressing myself I read a simplified version of Russian litterature. I find the possibility of achieving such a thing is amazing. :-) :-)
