Whew... I finally finished.

I just finished all the German Duolessons. I rather expected a bigger whoop-de-doo at the end.

you should say " in den Lingotclub" ( from outside to the inside) ; congratulations though ;-)

Thanks very much... I was hoping someone would correct me if I was wrong about that.

even better: "im Lingotclub", because it is "der Club" and it is third case (Dativ), so it is "in dem Club", normally shortened to "im Club". Hope I could explain it although it is sometimes not easy to explain your own mother tongue. Dativ = Wem-Fall: Welcome "in wem oder was"/"in whom"? Answer: "im Club"

One more thing (added after fbicknel's response): You can think of "Willkommen im Club" like the sentence "Willkommen in meinem Zuhause"/"Welcome to my home." Not a direction, but a position: in the home/in the club, not into the house/club. That would be indeed "in den Club".

I hope that I didn't cause to much confusion...

Gut gemacht! Ich werde dir Lingos schicken, dass hoffentlich "a bigger whoop-de-doo" wäre! Mach weiter Fortschritte, und finde auch andere Weise, Deutsch zu lernen. Es gibt auch Einträge, die man übersetzen kann, in dieser Webseite.

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NathanLeee

Gut gemacht! And a 212 day streak at that!

If you're interested, I've heard switching to the 'English for German speakers' Duolingo is good practice too.

You could also always start on another language.

Viel Glück!

Well that was an interesting experiment. I netted a slew of XP for trying it, too! :) Thanks for the suggestion.

I agree; sort of an anticlimax on the one hand, but you are well on your way to fluency if you keep practicing!

Looks like I'm going to have to get my pace up a bit, 2 days away from a 300 day streak, level 18, and still only about 3/5ths done. Thanks for the inspiration. :)

Nothing wrong with taking the time to enjoy the journey. You're likely learning it more thoroughly.

Is there only 15 levels ? :) Because I saw someone has 20. :O I am new here and I don t know how stuff works here.. Is that mean that you can finish all german lessons with 15 level? :)

May 25, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/aldittli

Levels are based on points and are not related to where you have gotten to in the tree. I finished on level 13. I'm not bragging. Maybe I should have repeated lessons more.

May 25, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/fbicknel

gratuliere!

May 25, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/fbicknel

I suppose if you test out all of them but the last you could do it at a pretty low level. Level is more about how many points you rack up as @aldittli said.

Not about the destination: it's about the journey.

I have a few question I hope you won't mind answering them.

1-Did you study/speak German before, school, German relative,....etc?

2-How many hours a day did you spend during these 222 days?

3-Do you find your self able to read, maybe articles/news in German?

4-Do you find Duolingo German vocab lacking some aspects of life or has it covered everything.

5-Do you see yourself able to understand two persons having a conversation in German?

Also congratulation :) have some Lingots!
