Another tree down! :-)

I have never posted here before, but this post is mandatory, isn't it? :-) So, finally, after just 211 days, I have conquered the German tree! The golden Owl is smiling at me and I am smiling at him back! Actually, this is not my first tree: I have already finished the French and the Spanish ones, but I had previous knowledge of these languages, while I started German from scratch. So, what else to say? Thanks Duolingo, and thanks to this community: as I said, I never posted before, but I found a lot of useful tips and resources here; so, thank you all! ;-) Keep on learning, guys!

Danke schön! I will try to keep my trees golden, and to learn also some Portuguese. But most of all, I have to focus on my master thesis in Mathematics :-)

Many congrats. I admire your commitment. I was just wondering, as someone who has completed the tree, was it worth it? Just wondered how comfortable you would feel in your position to, for instance, hold a conversation? Or read and understand German articles maybe...? I'd be interested to know.

Thank you! Well, of course I'm not very fluent in it, but fluency comes just with a lot of practice, both in conversation and in reading... Anyway, finishing a tree is a great starting point, and it is also very satisfactory! So yes, I think it is worth it :-)
