How far through are are you in the course?
Hi. Just wondering how far everyone is through the course so far? I’ve spent about an hour and I’m up to Restaurant and Places 1. What about you? How long have you spent on the Indonesian course and how far through are you?
I'm about to finish up my sixth skill. I've been taking my time with the course, reviewing and making sure I understand each concept before moving to the next lesson. I had a bit of difficulty recalling phrases and understanding some of the grammar in the places section, so I spent lots of effort there. I've also been practicing outside of Duolingo, writing things in Indonesian and such. I figure it's better to be a little slow than to get lost and not understand what is happening, haha. :)
I took the placement test and tested out of ~15 skills, I don't remember exactly. I thought the placement test was hard, lol. I had a lot of close-but-no-cigar answers. I studied some Indonesian a few years ago and have been brushing up over the past couple of months. I can read and understand a decent amount already.
Rather than unlocking the whole tree, I have been leveling up the skills I unlocked with the placement test. With that I'm at the first check point. I'm in no rush--I really enjoy Indonesian, it's nice change of pace from my other languages, so I don't mind taking my time.
I'm about half way but I admittedly rushed through the first two branches of the tree. I'm doing the last half more slowly and then going to go over it again. It's not the first time I've learnt Indonesian; I've been waiting for this as a refresher course since I've been using Duolingo to maintain the level of Indonesian I once had about a decade ago.
