365 day streak!

I completed 365 days of practice on Duolingo today. I want to share my experience and suggestions- Duolingo is well designed and will help you clear A1 with ease provided you- 1) Don't just make the streak count by doing the easy lessons. 2) In addition to Duolingo, you need to be learning from other sources to vary your vocab. SlowGerman channel on YouTube is a good start. 3) LingQ and Babbel are immensely helpful. Dont miss out on them. LingQ being a little harder. 4) The recently launched "Stories" on Duo is very helpful too. Podcasts, at the moment are not in German but rumor is it will be available in German too.

well done. And I agree, you need to spread your studies far and wide, just to keep you thinking and to expose you to new vocabulary and its uses. I'm also using SlowGerman, Coffee Break German, a little DeutscheWelle and lots of Memrise. Will have to check out LingQ. Congrats

"Gemacht" is used to form the perfect tense of the verb "machen". "Hast du das gemacht" (Have you done that?) In these comments, "Gut gemacht!" translates to "Well done!"

    Congrats and I agree with your suggestions. Duolingo shines when you are an active learner and are not just brute forcing the lessons. Another hint I would add is to not use the hint system after a certain level (after clearing the tree once). This will help you commit some of the harder to learn phrases into long-term memory. Yes, you will have to purposely fail some assignments to learn the correct answer sometimes but it really helps!
