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.
