After 6 months, my tree is finally golden.
You must not have been switched over to Crowns. If you are given the opportunity to refuse Crowns, refuse them. They make you go back and redo the very basic lessons to get to level 5. It’s a waste of time. And you can’t just practice completed levels without using health anymore. I hate that. I don’t like getting locked out for 4 hours and 20 minutes until I get another health bar. I don’t like all of the different numbers anc colors on the screen. I’ll be spending more time on other language apps.
Wow! Impressive! Did you use any other learning help apart from Duolingo? How does it feel? Can you read? Can you speak Chinese now?
Congrats! I started in September learning Russian, I however, only have ~20 skills completed. I strive to finish my tree like you have, hears a lingot!
