After nearly a year, I've finished my tree!
This is the moment I've been waiting for, for nearly an entire year since I registered on Duolingo with this account:
I can hardly express how happy I am!!!
About ninety-five percent of my tree is still golden, since I have a little bit of strengthening to do in the middle of the course.
I did not find the German course difficult at anytime during the tree, really. The tips and notes section explained a lot of the hard grammar concepts very well, and I absolutely have loved the course itself!! I can now read a lot of sentences in newspapers (in German), I can write some sentences, and I could hold a conversation too!!
Thank you to everyone who has encouraged me along the way!!! You know who you all are ;)
Thank you for this opportunity!
Congratulations on your achievement! It is indeed a nice feeling receive the golden owl after such a long journey.
And now we can already say Physik liefert eine Erklärung für manche Ereignisse. Good grief, I'm so tried of this sentence appearing on my practice exercises...
Have a lingot.
Any idea why?
Maybe that module (I think it's Present 4) is short on sentences so they have to repeat it again and again.
Derlei klingt fürwahr toll. But the proof of the pudding is still in the eating, so when I just read over your line
and I could hold a conversation too
I figured it might be rather helpful to ask you to put your new capabilities to use. First, Duolingo is a good starting point in language learning, but it is not a sufficient ending point [yet] (yes, even at the end of the trees). So I would like to kindly urge you to find a German-speaking "Tandempartner" to communicate with in person or via the internet. That way you could improve your German little by little based on what you already know. Sounds great? Sounds great! And -- well, please keep it up! I generally love it when people learn foreign languages, and I love it when they interact with or as foreigners, making the world a bit more understanding.
(Other than that I cannot comment on your improvements -- I have been at Duolingo just a fortnight or so, so I have never been able to follow your progress so far. This may sound a bit brusque, but that's definitely not the way I inten... oh, look, what's flying over there, a pink elephant!).
