German tree completed!
After just over 2 months, I have finally reached it! I had a goal to make it before I go on a cruise and lose my streak, and I’m 8 days early.
Congrats! Enjoy your cruise! I'm curious though, now that you've finished the tree, are you going to max out all the skill or are you moving on to other means of learning German?
Just to be extra clear, there's the German from English tree and the English from German tree (and loads more), and they are all different trees even if they sometimes involve the same languages in more than one tree.
If your main focus is the German from English tree, then the English from German tree would often be referred to as the "reverse tree" and is often useful since it will have more translation to German, and also (since it's a completely independent course) it will most likely contain some vocabulary that the opposite tree doesn't have.
Congratulations (Im confused though as its only showing you at level 13 for your German) and enjoy your cruise. I've been at this for four months and have only made it so far about a quarter of the way through the German tree.
Learning German from English for me is not at all easy.
Congratulations for the dedication! I don't think you are supposed to power through the tree this quick. At least that's how I am. To me, learning a language takes a shit load of time, and if I would finish the tree in such little time, I don't think I'd learn anything long term. Just my 2 cents. Are you able to pick a very easy book and understand most of it? Have you tried? I'm just curious of what sorts of results one might get after finishing the tree (which to me seems extremely long, since I reached questions 1 in two and a half weeks).
