Finished the German Tree!

[deactivated user]

    It has been a long journey (8 months) but I finally did it! I completed the German tree!

    All I can say is, thank you. My skills in German improved a lot since I started Duolingo. I wanted to learn German but I didn't know where to start, I looked up many sites but the information they gave was limited, only things like "What's your name?" and "How are you?". Here I learn many types of words and sentences, not only the beginner stuff.

    Now I will move on to some harder stuff, listening to podcasts and talking to actual Germans. But I will continue using this site, strengthening my tree and translating articles! Maybe I'll even do reverse tree (English for German speakers).

    Vielen Dank!

    German is indeed really hard (even for the native speakers), so congratulations!

    Deutsche Sprache, schwere Sprache

    Holländisch sprache, schwerere Sprache

    Du meinst vermutlich: Holländische Sprache, schwerere Sprache - so viel zur Schwierigkeit :D


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

    Klar, deutsche Sprache, schwere Sprache - aber soo schwer ist sie dann auch wieder nicht, zumindest nicht für diejenigen, die damit aufgewachsen sind, wie mich. Allerdings muss ich zugeben, dass es in unserer Sprache immer wieder Dinge gibt, bei denen ich mich frage, wie man sie als nicht-Muttersprachler verstehen können soll.

    So, das war jetzt für redarkblade - als Übersetzungsübung :).

    "Wie man sie als nicht-Muttersprachler verstehen können soll." Das tun doch auch viele Muttersprachler nicht wirklich ordentlich (zumal es teilweise ja auch noch Interpretationsspielraum gibt). :)

    I'm so jealous. That should motivate me.


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

    you are jealous of something you own, the word here should be "envious"


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

    Thanks, help on diction is always appreciated. I did mean being envious of success of others as in rivalry, one of the possible uses of "jealous," though, of course, I meant it to be lighthearted.

    Congratulations! As for the reverse tree, I have found it really helpful and highly recommend it. I also think that a great point to start it is just after finishing the original tree. And indeed, strengthening the original tree is a must also, until you start to feel that there's no challenge anymore. (I'm still a long way from that).

    Congratulations! You are a example for me and other German students!

    That's honestly, beautiful. I'm halfway through my Spanish tree! ^_^

    nice! so can you help me now? {I am a beginner.} :{

    I always remind me a sentence that Richard Porson once said : "Life is too short to learn German". He probably didn't know Duolingo. Congratulations to you anyway, now you can say : Life is too short to read and speak auf Deutsch ! ;)

    Herzlichen Glückwunsch! Gut gemacht! Arbeite weiter - es lohnt sich.
