Golden German Tree!
"Endstation! Bitte alle aussteigen" - I know I'm not the first to post an accomplishment like this, but ever since Duolingo introduced the skill levels I have been struggling to get the golden German tree back. I just like the color! And now I have done it! It could have been done faster and with a better streak, but sometimes I encounter what I refer to as "festival incidents"... You know how difficult it is to maintain a streak when being on a festival with friends! Now, I'm happy to say that my journey has taken me to Munich, where I currently live as an exchange student. There's still a lot to learn and I'm far from fluent, but with a golden tree in my back pocket and immersion all around me, I'm getting there :) Carry on and "bitte zurückbleiben!" (as they mumble on the U-Bahn in Munich when the doors close)
