Three trees!

I am so overjoyed at finally completing a tree (much less Three trees!) I finished Italian and French about 2 months ago and just now finished Navajo.

After 3-4 years of learning languages on Duolingo, I have finished one! Thanks to Duolingo and contributors for making the trees.next I plan to finish Portuguese, German, Dutch or maybe a new one. Thanks, DanielvanD18

Daniel congrats on your progress. To do a deep dive, make all the skills golden, take them to level 5 and get a 25 next to the country's flag. And then do a reverse tree.

For example, because I know English and Spanish and I'm learning French, I am planning on completing all the following to level 25.

  • French - English
  • English - French
  • French - Spanish
  • Spanish - French

Slow and steady wins the race. Quality over quantity.

When you say "reverse tree" are you talking about starting a the bottom and just going backwards once? I'm already at level 25, and will complete golden tree later this month.

No, I am pretty sure what they mean is if you are learning French for English speakers, try doing English for French speakers.

that makes more sense. Thank you. I get it...more translations from the learned language BACK to the native language. For me, Spanish > English. Thanks for clarification.

What about English-Spanish and Spanish-English? Even though you know both, it could be interesting to find out which one you finish faster.

Yes, that's the Spanish 23 & the English 17, next to my name. I wanted to brush up on my written Spanish. It was a good refresher, but not currently a priority.

Congrats! Navajo sounds intriguing :) May I ask how challenging did you find learning it? I know nothing about Navajo, so I would be interested to hear something about it.

I kind of barged my through it, but I am planning to practice it more and more.

The Navajo tree is still in the very early beta stage. It only has 11 skills and (sadly) no audio. The main challenges are bugs in the programming and, at best, you will learn a handful of words.

Still, I really enjoy practicing this handful of words. And look forward to learning much more as the course updates.

I recommend checking out this post: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/29155650 to hear the language and get an idea what you will find currently on the tree.

Ok, thanks for replying! I understand that developing a Duolingo learning tree may take time. Thanks for linking the post as well!
