I have completed the German tree and I have measured it. Here is the data (charts! yikes!).

After around 100+ hours of effort, I finally conquered German Duolingo skill tree. For those of you who find twisted pleasure in self quantification and analyzing Excel charts, I have written a post with daily self-tracked data, charts and analysis from my study:

I love reading the statistics. Interesting that you found Duolingo to be around 125-165hrs. This really makes me miss the old Vocabulary tab, with all of it's in-depth statistics.

But there's "Words" tab, right?

Wow. For the first time in forever I have the feeling to be special. Lol

Well, duo will implement it to everyone anyway so just be patient! :3

Hey, I don't have the words bar, is it special or what? :P

Not really, Duo usually implement a new feature to some Duolinguists(?) to test it, when they're ready they'll implement it to the rest of the Duolinguists(?).

Very good work spawarotti. I wish duolingo would improve there statistic view. Not just points also the time spent is interesting. It is also nice to see how you have worked over month and not just the last week. I study also mathematic at KhanAcademy.org and they have very good statistics. I recommend to study beside of duolingo also on memrise.com for more vocabularies. Cheers

I would be careful extrapolating hours of Duo to CEFR levels. They are based on classroom hours which would normally spend a lot more time on spoken, writing, and cultural items which are not very throughly covered here. When I branched out from learning French here I found that while I could understand a lot of written french, my ability to communicate in the language was still very weak. I'm finally comfortable with reading and being able to express ideas in written form, but speaking it still a challenge.

He kept track of his statistics by himself (he mentioned in an Excel spreadsheet). As of now you cannot view these statistics on Duolingo.

Oh okay, thanks ;) And do you know how i can detect my level of Deutsch? I think A1/A2....?

I don't think there's a way of telling your level directly from Duolingo--I'd do a Google search for "German A1 quiz" or something similar; you'll find quite a few free tests. (My first search brought up this link: http://www.prolog-berlin.com/en/german-language-course-online-test.htm )

Nice one, I wish Duolingo provided advanced statistics out of the box. Gamification is the real deal. But hey, one may argue that competition is not "good" for everyone. Where did you mine the data from? Is Duolingo providing an API or maybe simply allows you to export a user's data?

I logged manually my learning sessions start and end times in Excel spreadsheet.
