I've finished my French, German and Portuguese trees...
Thanks! I've just started Italian, but I'm also doing it to reinforce what I already know.
Congratulations! I've heard that it can be fun/challenging to go back and do the trees in reverse order - ie. if you've done English->German now do German->English. Have fun with it, though!
Nice. Will you push them to their maximum levels one day? I hope you find Duolingo helpful. It sounds like for someone already fluent in the three languages, it would be easy breezy!
I'm using this comment to ask what is the maximum level of each language. And also to ask is there a way to find out when I signed ay a DL course. Thanks in advance!
The maximum is 25, and I hear that by this point, it's difficult to keep the tree golden. :)
thanks, i'm pretty convinced it is so, because i'm close to finish my french tree, but it is really hard to keep the tree golden. especially when there are more than one language courses that you are taking :)
I believe the best way to advance is to repeat each lesson until you get the thirteen points (and one lingot). Doing so, you can strength your skill and leave the lesson for a longer period before it claims to be strengthed again.
I wish there were little gold rings around our language icons by our usernames to show off completed trees. I kind of just want to show off.
pretty consistent at 16 17 and 17. I am thinking that I will be done with my spanish tree at around 17.
Thanks! I was already fluent in the three languages, though I had not studied them as I might have done. Duolingo seems to be good to reinforce what you already know about a language. I can help you with your Spanish, as it is my native language (I have both Argentinian and Spanish citizenships). Hugs! Pablo
Wow.. congrats! :) I've finished my Spanish tree... but French is really challenging!
Thanks! French is not really difficult. At least, it's easier than Spanish and much easier than German. If you could finish the Spanish tree, I'm sure you can do the same with the French one. Where are you from? Greetings from Buenos Aires.
Well... I'm sure I'll finish the French tree, because I'm addicted to duolingo :D.. but I guess it will take ages :) I'm from Poland.. but I live in Greece :)
You will certainly do it! I visited Poland years ago and I enjoyed your country. And I went several times to Greece; my last visit there was in January. Have you already learnt Greek? Greetings! Pablo
Congratulations!! I'm curious... how do you feel now about your capability to speak those languages? Could you have a comfortable conversation in them? Does Duolingo teach you enough for that?
You say that you have finished the trees but they are not maxed? Is it your own personal tree or... ?
What do you mean when you say that they are not "maxed"? I've finished each tree at the thirteenth or fourteenth levels of each language. After that, there is nothing new to be discovered in Duolingo. You can only go on practicing or translating if you want to get to the twenty-fifth level, but you won't get more vocabulary.
Congratulations on that.
I finished my french and English (Dutch-English) tree. But i resetted both. French because I went to quick and did not remember a lot (now i do it again but more slowly) and English because I wanted to do Vietnamese-English. I am interested in Spanish too, but I am afraid i mix up things with the French if I start that.
How do you do in the quizzes for those languages? I scored 5/5 for the Dutch-English, but do very poorly in the English-French one.
Thanks for your congratulations! I've been born in Buenos Aires in a family originated in Italy, France, Spain, Ireland and Austria, more or less like any other Argentinian family, as long as this is an immigration country. I travelled since childhood all around the five continents, I spent long periods in Switzerland, France, Italy and Germany and I return to Europe every year. I have both Argentinian and European passports. Languages have been important in my life since the very beginning. I learned French, Italian and English when I was a little kid. I studied German and Portuguese later. As I've written in my profile, I was already fluent in all those languages before starting with Duolingo. I'm just doing the Duolingo trees to strengthen the basics of all languages. In order to achieve that, I never give up a lesson before obtaining the thirteen points and the lingot. It's funny and I do it in my free time. I'm actually doing the Italian tree and I'll try to go on with Dutch later. Be careful with French and Italian: the girl who reads in both languages here has an incredibly bad pronunciation. If you want, we can keep in touch and try to chat on Skype in any of the languages we are interested on. Hugs! Pablo
