Reached Level 25 in German Today!

I reached Level 25 in German from English today. At this time that is the highest level attainable in German. I have a 377 day streak going. Here are my other "stats":

Duolingo "fluency": 70% Duo Vocabulary: 2,726 words German XPs: 30,009 Total XPs:(32,129 -- I started the reverse tree as well, so have some XP there.

I am not going to stop using Duo just yet, as I feel I have not "mastered" all that Duolingo has to offer. I will likely reduce my time spent daily on the German tree, focusing specifically on those areas I have the least confidence. I am going to complete the reverse tree next.

I do not intend this post to be a boast, but rather to be encouragement to anyone starting out. I have made Duo part of my morning routine now for over one year. I completed the tree this evening simply because I was too excited to see what would happen, to leave it for in the morning!

Viel erfolg mit deinem Deutsch!

    If only the Immersion program was still there, that way you could utilise your new skills. Sign this to make it happen: https://www.change.org/p/duolingo-bring-back-duolingo-immersion-program

    OMG, that is sooo good!Gut gemacht!I'm still in high school and was learning German for two years as when we moved to high school we got given 2 languages to take to GSCE but i wanted to learn Spanish as it is more of a common language but i still wanted to carry on learning German as it is such an interesting language.

    Jim, you are an inspiration to all of us studying German. I have a long way to go, and I keep working on German every day. I'm only 69 days in, but we all start at 0 days and go up from there. Congratulations.

    Congratulations..............I'm right behind you, but I'll have to agree with you. I have a lot more to master! Duo is still useful. I combine daily Duo practice with a lot of other listening and reading.
