Hurray! I finally have my Golden Owl
Yesterday I got my golden owl in German. Im so happy that I finally achieved my goal. Im also happy that I maintained my streak. I would actually have nightmares about losing it, they were really scary! I just hope that everyone staring Duolingo will stick to it because it's a great habit to get into.
Ich liebe deutsch und Duolingo!
When you complete all lessons in your language tree (ie, all lessons available in that language, not including extras that are purchasable in the lingot score), a Golden Owl* will appear at the bottom of that tree, as a trophy. It'll stay there as long as your tree remains completed (Duolingo adds new lessons from time to time, and when they do, this will cause temporary loss of your Golden Owl until the new lessons are completed).
*it looks more like a chicken in the latest edition but we're assured it's still the same bird
Thanks for your explanation. I always wondered about Golden Owls. Maybe someday I'll achieve one!
Hurray! Great job on reaching your goal. Don't worry about losing it - I've lost a few owls, but they always come back :)
When new skills are added to the tree, you temporarily lose your owl. Once you complete the skills, you get your owl back. It may be frustrating but if you are focused on learning it is great to have new vocabulary/grammar added to the tree.
Congratz! Don't know how you got a golden german owl before level 25, but either way you did a great job!
Congratulations! I got mine in Chinese today- it took me 9 months to get to level 5 in every circle!
If you complete all the skills in a tree, a Golden Owl will appear at the bottom, indicating that you have completed the tree. It's sort of like a trophy.
I am doing my best to be fluent in french language.I am waiting for that time.
I don't think you can become fluent using only Duolingo. You would have to visit the country as well. At least, I think so.
Yeah. Duolingo will give you a basic understanding of the language, but you have to fully immerse yourself in the language to become fluent (books, movies, conversing with native speaker, etc.)
I really love parle Francais, I promise , I would achieve it. I love France so much too.
might want to use parler instead of parle in that sentence, parler means to speak where as parle just means speak.
You are the third person to ask this question. Why don't you read the thread and find out for yourself?
It means that you completed all of the current skills of a specific language.
That's fantastic, I'm trying to learn Japanese but it is proving difficult. I didn't even know there was a 'golden owl'. What language are you going to learn next? How about you learn Japanese with me!
