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!!

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

January 22, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/Nuno275251

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.

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

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 :)!

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.

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.
