Wow, congratulations. I'm trying to learn Chinese on Duolingo myself, and I find it much harder due to the change in alphabet. Any tips for me if possible?

And for motivating thoughts, it takes a lot of time and patience to get to where you are now, so don't put it all to waste and throw it away. Always keep practicing, because although you've obviously put in so much effort, there's still a lot more to go.

Thanks! Chinese doesn't have an alphabet just characters that are made up of radicals. These radicals can give a clue as to the character's pronunciation and meaning. About one percent of characters are pictographic, which means that they are modeled to look like what they represent (for example, 日 is sun). +1 Lingot

Just as "alphabet" is not the right word for a writing system like Chinese, "radical" is also not the right word, even though many people use both of these words technically wrongly.

Characters are made up of one or more components. A lot of characters have a semantic component and a pronunciation component. But many don't. A long time ago, each character was classified in a way that allows them to be sorted in a predictable order, looked up in a dictionary, etc. As part of this each character was assigned a "radical". The word "radical" means "root" and is similarly used in this respect to the word "index" in English. Anyway, often the chosen radical is the same as the character's semantic component. But a lot of the time it's not. Sometimes the radical is the entire character. Sometimes the radical is not really a separate part of the character but is a single stroke or even not really an obvious part of the character. It can be a bit arbitrary.

    For motivation try doing another languages to relax of your main goal. My main goal when I started duolingo was to improve my german, I ended up learning some other languages in the process.

    but which are the languages that you really concentrated on ..I presume it is german, french, spanish and swedish! (but i cannot just presume just by looking at levels as someone at level 12 could be near fluent by practicing through other means!

    congrats ..keep it up

    now i think, you have reached your potential (if you have completed the tree) and now i would suggest you to try the 'lab' (to complete stories) ..before it gets boring

    But, it is a great achievement...considering you are learning chinese which is a lot different to european langauges...

    Good work¡¡¡ What do you want to say wenn you writes 100 and not 25?, are you a special member??? jajaja, it´s a joke...
