German Tree in 100 days.

Finally, I finished German tree and would like to thank this wonderful and helpful community for being here and volunteers for not giving up courses.

I made my own strategy for Duolingo, is finishing 1 circle a day for first level, writing down all the words to my Telegram's saved messages and make the same circle lvl 2 on the second day. Every evening before going to sleep I check my saved messages for words from previous lessons and make my own sentences with them in order to be sure that I never missed a word. So basically i never got a circle higher than level three, but I devote this time to translating German songs, watching German movies ( I mean, everything i could do not to be limited to duolingo only ).

I would like to hear you strategies a lot!

P.S. Time to check duolingo stories

When I was learning German years ago, I found listening to German music helped. Music is catchy and you tend to sing along with it if you like what you hear, so I was choosing artists I liked and began memorizing lyrics and singing along to them when I played their music.

I also find reading children's books and nursery rhymes helps because you - as an adult - know how the stories go, so when you read them in a new language, you can get the gist of what's going on without having to look things up.

Also, if you use Twitter and follow something in the language you're learning such as the German national fu├čbol team - don't translate their tweets and try to comment on their tweets with what you know. It can get you talking to others in German just by following a German-speaking account.

I think you have a good plan! Re a fun series to watch, you might check out "Deutsch Lernen Extr@" ... if you haven't seen it before, I'd be interested in reading what you think of it.

Just out of curiosity what other German series/films would you recommend? granted I'm a beginner but I feel I could definitely benefit from them haha

Also you might check out "Mein Weg nach Deutschland" by Goethe-Institut - I think it's also A1/A2 level, and good not just for language exposure but also for insight into how to get around in Germany. (I'm not native German and have not been to Germany YET - but when I finally get to go, I would like to be able to get around on my own!)

Wow! 100 Days! I keep going over past lessons just to drill in sentence structure and vocabulary over and over again. I only have three more branches to finish till I've reached level 5 on every lesson. Congrats! And I think that you will enjoy the stories, some of them are actually super hilarious. :D
