What is a Duolingo tree?

What does completing a tree mean? Thanks.

The tree is all the skill sets on your home page; the course.

Before they were round skill sets, they looked more like a flow chart or a family tree, and they were actually called the "tree":


The course = The Duolingo tree So when you complete the tree you finish the course.


When you complete all the skills of the language you're learning on Duolingo.


When you log into your account, you will see a set of skills in that particular course. These skills are collectively known as a "tree" because when Duolingo first started, the layout kind of looked like a tree. The layout has since changed but the terminology stayed, hence the "tree". Once you have completed the course, you have finished the "tree".
