Obligatory "I finished my tree" post!

So, happily, after 125 days I have finally finished my tree! http://i.imgur.com/9LbyuG2.png It's been a long ride and I came close to burning out, especially at the beginning, but I settled into a schedule of five lessons a day (one review lesson in bed on the Duolingo app before I fell asleep, then two new lessons, then repeating those two new lessons) and that worked out pretty well for me. I'd always regretted how I basically forgot all the French I learned way back in high school, so this was a great way to get back into it. (Learning French is also much more fun when your grades aren't on the line!)

Now that my tree is done, I guess I'll be doing immersion full-time, and maybe give Le Petit Prince a go!

I also have a small contribution (and if this isn't allowed feel free to edit it out) - I was also using Memrise to supplement my learning, in particular a course called Duolingo French. But eventually I surpassed the lessons available in the Memrise course so I created my own continuation, which is now complete: http://www.memrise.com/course/383477/duolingo-french-continued/ So yeah, it's there if anyone wants to use it for the later Duolingo lessons. Woo?!

Congratulations! I feel your happiness, for I too am very close to finishing. Do you have plans for working on any other languages, or perhaps doing the reverse tree now? The day I finish my Spanish Tree is the day I begin it again - backwards! Maybe you should take one day off though. Just give one correct answer in timed practice tomorrow (to maintain the streak obvi), then log off and enjoy the serenity of completion!. ...Winning!

Ooh, you're right, I forgot about the reverse tree! Yes, I will probably turn to that soon... but, as you said, I will take some time off first. ;D Good luck with the rest of your tree!

Très bein mon frere. Keep it up. Also, you should be able to tackle Le Petite Prince already (I've already started myself). Get in to doing some immersion as well as help others who are starting to learn or even those who are rebuilding what they already know.

*soeur, en fait ;) And cool, that's great to know that you're already getting into Le Petit Prince. :D And yes, immersion does seem like the next logical choice!

Thank you! It certainly is, and I'm admittedly kind of impressed that I managed to get to the end. XD
