  5. My first golden tree!

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JCFal

My first golden tree!

I have got the golden owl quite a long time ago, but only today has the whole tree turned golden - all lessons are now level 5! It feels like a small accompilishment.

I have spent too much leanring German and finally I can seriously consider make French my priority now. :D

EDIT: Thank you all for the kind comments! Hope everyone enjoys learning at Duolingo!

Geil! Hast du das photoshop-t?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Gh0stwheel

Nicht auf diesem Gerät.
I used a far less capable free program called Junior Icon Editor.
Nochmals herzlichen Glückwunsch zum Vergolden Ihres Baumes.

Shouldn't that be "gephotoshopt"? Just kidding. Cool!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JCFal

hhh danke dir. Ich fange heute mit dem umgekehrten (?) Baum, nämlich DE-zu-EN an. Ich hoffe ich kann ihn auch so bald wie möglich vergolden. :p

@MarkHouseholder Ich würd wahrscheinlich sogar "gephotoshoppt" verwenden. Die richtige Konjugation von Verben aus dem Englischen sind selbst unter Muttersprachlern recht umstritten. Ich persönlich würd allerdings "gephotoshopped", "gephotoshoppt" und "gephotoshopt" richtig zählen. Ein Bindestrich ist hingegen nicht notwendig, kommt ja in "normalen" deutschen Verben bei der Konjugation auch nicht vor

How did you find such an interesting Duo image?!? Das ist aber schön. Wo haben sie's gefundet?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Gh0stwheel

Duolingo has created over the years many images of Duo dressed in traditional clothes. Just search on your favorite search engine.
Then, it's just a matter of combining them or editing them, resizing and saving on a free image hosting site.
I have a folder of links to such images I've saved/edited/created.
Feel free to use any image I post.

Congrats on achieving this big milestone.

Au contraire, mon frère, that is no small feat getting a course up to Level 5. Kudos for your time and dedication.

Gratuliere für die nun völlig Goldene Eule


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WilderBeest

Make FRENCH your priority, but never, ever forget your DEUTSCH !

Congratulations!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Douglas459054

Well done! It takes a lot of work to go from Golden Owl to golden tree.

Good luch for the future.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Theluji

Herzlichen Glückwunsch! I wish you the best of luck with your French.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Genesis_1_1_B

Great job! Have fun learning your French.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Harold172355

Congratulations! Duo 28


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/isabelleBrown14

Wow that's awesome! I'm learning German right now.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Betelleo

Das ist wundervoll! Herzliche Glückwünsche!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/2LearningSpanish

Wow! JCFal, that's a lot of studying and work on a long German tree, in between learning other languages, too! Bonus lingot for your jewel collection!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JCFal

Merci beaucoup :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/partyofthegrons

Congratulations! That is an amazing accomplishment!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BenColeman19

JCFal what level of proficiency do you think you are now after completing the tree?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JCFal

I have learned german years ago. I am only using Duo sort of refreshing my old memories so I cannot give you a useful answer. Even though most say it is likely to be level A2 I found some materials in the german lessons quite challenging.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mdfmk

Congratulations! I wish to be in the same place you are one day


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SeanHamilt4

Congratulations on your accomplishment and bonne chance avec le français!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/7BNJRF6e

Herzlichen Glückwunsch und viele liebe Grüße aus Nordrhein-Westfalen!!!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JCFal

Servus! Wir sind ja nicht weit weg voneinander, ich wohne in Bayern. Was für einen Dialekt oder Dialekte spricht man in Nordrhein-Westfalen? Also, Ich würde gerne außer Hochdeutsch auch Boarisch lernen, es ist jedoch viel zu schwer für eine Auslanderin wie ich. :(


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/7BNJRF6e

Die Dialekte hier in Nordrhein-Westfalen kenne ich noch nicht so gut. Ich komme eigentlich "us em Ländle" - sprich aus Baden-Württemberg. Und bin mit einem der dortigen Dialekte aufgewachsen. Ein paar Wörter "Ruhrpottisch" kann ich allerdings schon. :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Caterpillar1938

Fantastic! Well done you!
Perhaps this golden owl will become your most satisfying and rewarding Christmas present ever. :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JCFal

That's quite a fresh and original way to see it. Hmm I'll soon start to get my hands on the next golden owl for 2020 Christmas!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NickAmok

Congratulations!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/milant23

Congrats!!! Have you complete the stories as well?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JCFal

Thanks! Stories not yet. I am "struggling" at set 10, but will definitely finish them in December.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JBm4j1

Congratulations on your amazing achievement :-) With all that dedication and ability French has no chance of keeping all it's secrets from you :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ALEXan20033

I’m proud of you for reaching that milestone. I recently reached a 100 day streak, after being on Duolingo for years! I hope you do start to learn French, I think that it’s an amazing language!!

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/m.j.alexander

IGNORE. This link has been in nearly every post in the forum - whatever the language.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Linda7Italian

M.j. Which post are we meant to ignore, not sure;-)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jawad-Dawdi

@ m.j.alexander : This is the only way that I can use to communicate with good people!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Linda7Italian

Jawad. Your most recent thread could have been as entertaining as the first one, but this one became pretty gruesome for a mixed age forum, hence people dvd it. Che peccato.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jawad-Dawdi

Yes - but you can ignore the gruesome part and add instead whatever you want


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Andrew316818

why are there so many downvotes on you?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Vu7xENbj

Better not to ask. It could be contagious.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jawad-Dawdi

Hahahaha - (-10) - You have to downvote the whole post to make my comment disappear! - You must visit A psychologist!
