I Tested Out of Latin :)

It's one of those days where the little victories matter. I dunno, but I was rather proud of myself that I finally completed a language. I know, I know, it's only in beta and it's still rather short, but I'll take my victories where I can find them. Today it's Latin on Duolingo, tomorrow it's all of Gaul!

My ten years of Latin have finally paid off...I guess.

Okay, back to trudging my way through my usual languages.

Congrats ! But why do we see only level 3 on your latin?

Levels are based off of XP. Testing out doesn't give you very much XP.

Honestly, I don't know how the levels work. I'm most of the way through Spanish, but I have only 14 levels in it. In comparison, I have 10 levels in Italian, and I'm not even to the third castle on my tree.

I think that testing out of portions gives drastically reduced levels in order to encourage people to go back and work through the tree (which makes sense because that's how to reinforce language skills).

Congratulations!

How many lessons did you go through the non-test out way to finish at level 3? Or did you do the entire course by testing out?

I did the entire course by testing out. But there are only three levels so far. Or at least that there is only a castle with a "three" flag above the golden owl. There's not an option for me to take a higher level yet.

Are you all able to access higher levels?
