I just finished my tree after 40 days :)
Yes, it is done at last. I only wonder whether i missed something, why am I in Level 11 and some are in much higher levels when they finish? I have noticed that you get more points on the ipad but i haven't used it often because it felt like cheating since it is much easier.
Many thanks to the duolingo team for getting me on track even close to midnight when i felt like.. "oh no, not today i'm so tired after work and cooking and so on."
you are fantastic, you kept me on my toes for nearly 6 weeks!
And yes it helps already.
Now here is what I still need to learn very quickly - fruit and veg like: el calabacín, el pimiento y la zanahoria o piñas, cas y lima. Guess we all know cilantro :)
kitchen utensils the ironing board and the broom stick.
the stuff from the builder's merchant, shovels, hammer watering can flower pots etc pp.
also I have no excuse left not to read workshop manuals in Spanish :)
I am only here since 15 days, though I could be wrong, but I don´t think, that you have missed something.
To level up you simply need more experience points, which you'll get from daily practice - even though your tree is golden. It's just another lure to get you to practice almost daily ;-) Because practice makes perfect!
https://www.duolingo.com/comment/1358479 -> Under this link you can find the points at which you level up.
To learn some new vocablary you could try the "Wlingua"-App on your Smartphone. It's pretty good, especially for the day to day dealings :-)
Congrats! The level, in essence, tells how slowly you did the tree — mine took 18 months and I was on Level 25 by the time I was 2/3 through, perhaps before then.
Shall you be doing the reverse tree?
Thank you JK, that explains it. Reverse tree? No I don't think so. I might do Russian or Serbian one of these days
