Reverse tree conquered!!!

After one long but amazing week, I've managed to finish the English from German course. Here's a screenshot I took the moment I finished the course:

I absolutely loved going through the reverse course, since I've learned a lot of words that the German from English course doesn't teach. Thank you to all the contributors who've worked so hard into making such an amazing course!! :)

Thank you, everyone, who has helped me along the way!! Especially Maughanster_, Woof., and SportsOcean!!

Congrats! I am not very far in German but I am a lot more accurate in German than It says. I have been doing it for years! But anyway congratulations! :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lagertha27

Here have a lingot!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Everdella

Don't worry, I'm sure you can do it :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lagertha27

Thanks! I could probably have a conversation with you right now though in German. It doesn't matter but thanks for your kind words!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Woof.

Amazing! Congratulations!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Everdella

Thanks so much!!! You've encouraged me so much. :)

    Congrats Everdella.

    I think the reverse tree is shorter but that was... fast!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Everdella

    I was able to test out of parts since I knew a lot of it after doing the German course. :)


    [deactivated user]

      Go and try a couple of stories. They're short but I think you'll find them more challenging than what you would expect. Not only are the voices real and closer to what you would eventually hear in Germany but there's quite a few new vocabulary. I tried not to hover new words and get the meaning of the sentences by logical deduction but it's not easy at all.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hannibal-Barkas

      If you go back and work through the parts you tested out you'll find a lot more new words since the courses were made by different volunteers. Anyway, wasn't it just the other day that you said "ready with the course"? Amazing.

      Have a "well done" Lingot

      Congratulations! Ausgezeichnet! :)


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mandaxhi

      Is this an option as soon as you finish the course? What an accomplishment! Congratulations, Everdella! :)


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Maughanster_

      After completing a tree there is the option to do the reverse (English from German) course, which teaches some new vocabulary.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Everdella

      Well explained! Have a lingot. :)


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Maughanster_

      Danke! ^^ Have eighteen lingots for being such an inspiration to the entire Duolingo community!


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Everdella

      Oh my, thank you so much!! You've inspired me sooo much!!! Thanks for being such a great role model. :D

      Also, this is slightly random, but do you have Discord?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Maughanster_

      You’ve inspired me too, Everdella! And no, I don’t have a Discord.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Everdella

      I never knew I inspired anyone, but thank you!!!

      And wow!!! We're so close in all time for XP!! :)


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Maughanster_

      We are very close! Less than 300 XP apart. Although you'll be ahead of me soon, as I am going to delete some languages that I have not done in a while, and won't get back to for a while.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Vabelie

      At the end of every course, you receive this certificate congratulating you and encouraging you to keep on reviewing. At the bottom of your conquered tree, you will see a golden Duo owl with a sash bearing the colors of the relevant language, and you just have to click it any time you want to see your award certificate. It is indeed a great feeling, but not as great as reaching maximum level. You'll get there :)!


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Everdella

      Well explained!! Have a lingot!


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Vabelie

      Thanks so much Everdella. Or rather "Vielen Dank", and "Merci beaucoup"!


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Josh166729

      No you just add it like any other course, just set it to "I speak German"


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/satishvc

      Well done! Do keep learning, yeah? :)


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Everdella

      Yes, I'm planning to keep both trees golden!!! Then, I might start French or Swedish. :)


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Maughanster_

      Both are great choices!


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Everdella

      Thank you! The five languages I've really wanted to learn are German, French, Italian, Swedish, and Romanian.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Maughanster_

      I attest Romanian. It's my main focus at the moment, and I love it!


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Everdella

      I see, you've leveled up twice already in the past few days ^^


      [deactivated user]

        Your nickname sure has an Italian flavour... won't you ever consider Italian?


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Everdella

        Maybe. First, I'm going to focus on French, and then I might start Italian and Romanian. :)


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Vabelie

        Isn't it a great ride? You should be proud of yourself. Deutsch ist wunderbar, und Duo ein toller Ort :)


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Everdella

        Danke! Also, congratulations on that really large streak. :)


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Vabelie

        You're not bad either! The streak thing really works on me: no excuses on lazy days, cause I want to keep my flame alive. I bought a streak freeze to be sure, and found myself not wanting to lose the freeze either, so double motivation. I'm a child at heart ;)

        I see you began my native French: I wish you the best with my dear, beautiful, illogical tongue. If you ever meet me on the forums, feel free to ask anything.


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Everdella

        I'll be sure to ask you!!! Good luck, French is very pretty. :)


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mwbrand1

        Gut gemacht. Herzlichen Glückwunsch!


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lou569021

        That's awesome Everdella! Well done! I'm only halfway through the reverse tree for German, that's incredible how fast you finished it! Hopefully i'll get there soon. Congrats!!!!! :)


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Zach32487

        noice. i have no idea what that is


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Vabelie

        After completed their first course (named a tree), the direct one from their native tongue to their target one, some learners here use the tree from their target language to their own one as an advanced course. I did and cannot recommend it enough.


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Thvnraz

        Gut gemacht! :)
