congratulations. I gave up in one day



I see you have done a lot of Japanese lessons. Klingon is easier.

Klingon language was too difficult for me. I am Japanese.


Oh, I see. I think you could learn it. Maybe try again. You learned English very well so you can do Klingon for sure.

Thank you very much. I would like to challenge it again. There is no course to learn Klingon language from Japanese.


Yes, try it again!


Well done! Soon there will be dozens of us, dozens I tell you!


There are not dozens already? Over 200,000 people started the course. It would be nice if Duo would share the number who have the owl. I always wonder how many people finish various courses.


Congratulations Michael!!! I noticed that you are at "regular" level 21 in Klingon! Does that mean that you have finished all 5 "crown" levels?

Personally, I was a little disappointed that a golden owl appeared under my tree after I finished all (crown) level 1 in Klingon, (regular level 9, crown level 62) since I have almost no understanding of this language at this time! (my language learning skills are quite poor! memory retention at my age is at an all time low!......but I keep working at it!!)


I'm not at Crown Level 5 in all levels yet; just until Row 13. My usual pattern with the course is to do a row or two to Level 1, review the vocab using TinyCards until I have them down, go to Level 2 or part of the way to Level 3, and then move on. While reviewing TinyCards on a new row, I do older lessons to bring them towards Level 3 or Level 4. I don't do an entire Level 3 or Level 4 in one sitting; I find the lessons get repetitive so I jump around.

Once at Level 4, if I feel confident about the material, I test out to Level 5. That is actually where a lot of my exp have come from. Without listening activites, there is really no difference between Levels 4 and 5.



What's the general mix of exercises (as far as which direction you're translating) at levels 4 and 5?


I haven't really kept count, all I have noticed is that by Crown Level 4, you have pretty much seen every sentence the unit has to offer a lot.


I'm pretty sure you've more or less seen every sentence the unit has to offer once you earn a single crown in it. There needs to be much more, and there is no increasing difficulty for greater crowns, just repetition.
