Off to eat haring, pannekoeken, kaas, and who knows what!

I came into this with native English skills and a decent German knowledge, so I figured "How hard can this be?" As it turns out, not too hard at all. Lots of fun, really.

Along the way, I've determined my limit was 2 Duolingo courses at a time. (Right now, also doing DE->FR.)

So finishing up the Dutch course is just about perfect timing, as I plan to dive into Turkish as soon it goes into beta.

Dank u wel, Team Dutch. Keep on riding bikes like a boss!

Well done:) I have ten skills to go. By a strange co-incidence I'm working on De->Fr too, and am also eagerly awaiting Turkish.

About 4 1/2 months start to finish. I made it a point to do at least one set every day. About 6 weeks ago, I was within striking distance of the end, but was tripping over a lot of exercises. So I went back to the start and reviewed each skill, before finishing off the tree. Reviewing definitely cemented a lot of knowledge in my mind.

Still extremely quick though. And smart of you to review although I'm sure it was very tempting to finish the tree. I have quite a journey ahead of me.lol Good luck with your French :)
