Das war eine Enttauschung.

I just hit level 25 German. No tinny metallic fanfare. No sacred Owl winking and shaking his feathers. Not even a message to say I had leveled up. Nothing! For the last week as I approached level 25 I felt a sense of nearing something. Now!! I don't anymore. Ich weiss nicht , was ich jetzt tun soll.

Vielen Dank. Das Feuerwerk war alles was ich brauchte

Herzlichen Glückwunsch zu Deinem Level 25! :-) Und wie schade, dass Du es als Enttäuschung erlebst. Es stimmt: Es wäre schön, wenn Duo bei dieser Gelegenheit etwas Besonderes sagen oder tun würde.

Ich bringe etwas Musik mit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j09hpp3AxIE So können wir zusammen feiern. :-)

(Oh, und Pentaan hat das Feuerwerk mitgebracht! Siehst Du, so wird es eine richtig schöne Feier ...)

Danke Heike . Ich denke die Toten Hosen in diesem Monat meine Lieblingsband sein Konnten

Das freut mich. Ich mag besonders dieses Lied sehr gerne. Es hat eine schöne Energie, finde ich.

Congratulations on your achievement! Feels like it is going to take forever for me to get there, in German.

I got my Golden Owl for Irish. Just hitting that point was enough for me, it felt amazing to know I had done it. Irish had been a serious struggle at first VSO instead of SVO and trying to not sound words as they were spelled. LOL, but once I got the flow of things, it became pretty easy. I can always say, at least I finished Irish. On my way with Welsh and French. French will be a huge milestone, since I have wanted to learn it as a 12 year old, a very, long, long , long time ago.

Thank you Elizabeth. You seem to be very much the linguist. Seeing the Welsh flag you are flying makes me think that I really should learn Welsh.....after all I was born in Wales. I live in Wales. Yet I know very little Welsh. So many languages to choose from.

Ich finde auch, dass es für 25 was Besonderes geben sollte. Vielleicht eine Feuerwerk-Animation und Duo, der einem auf der jeweiligen Sprach «Glückwunsch» sagt.

Ausgezeichnet! Congratulations! :)

Congratulations upon reaching Level 25. I, too, am disappointed that there is no more fanfare upon reaching Level 25. I miss the option to post my accomplishment to Facebook. My friends are following my progress.

Wow Judy! Congratulations to you too. You must have a truly silver tongue with all the 25's flying by your name.

I tested out of all of German with my current knowledge. I'm only at about a level 14 but I have completed the entire course. I didn't notice anything special either after finishing everything, except I have the Duo owl statue at the bottom of the German page. I also completed Spanish and have plateaued at level 11.

Verbring einen Urlaub in Deutschland, Österreich oder der Schweiz, um es auszunutzen?
Immigriere in ein Land mit deutschen Sprechern?
Lies deutsche Bücher? W Goethe, F Schiller, T Mann, F Schätzing, S Zweig, P Süßkind, H Hesse...

Würde das nicht sinniger sein, wie irgendeine virtuelle Gratulation?

Ich mag, dass mir mein Fortschritt angezeigt wird, aber mein Ziel ist die Sprache zu lernen und dann zu nutzen.

Go to vacation to Germany, Austria or Swiss, to use your new skills?
Immigrate to a country with German speakers?
Read German books? W Goethe, F Schiller, T Mann, F Schätzing, S Zweig, P Süßkind, H Hesse...

Wouldn't that make more sense, than some virtual celebration?

I like that i see my progress, but my goal is to learn the language and then use it.

Learn German in just 5 minutes a day. For free.
