I conquered the dutch tree!

I proudly finished my dutch tree last week, right before I went on vacation. I had started my journey at the beginning of 2015 after learning about duolingo and a classic new year's promise to myself. And I am really proud that I made it this far.

In the last months I tried to do several new lessons each day to keep improving but I also made sure to practice existing skills every day. What worked really well for me was the "Practice Weak Skills" feature, which I did every day (and I will continue doing it!)

I live in the Netherlands and I can already see the positive effects of Duolingo in my daily life. I am much more confident when it comes to small talk and even real conversations and my reading skills have improved greatly.

Thanks a lot to everybody working on this awesome website, you helped me tremendously with learning a new language!

Cheers! Markus

Awesome! Congratulations on completing your tree and keep it up! :) What are your plans to further your studies now? Perhaps using the reverse tree (the English for Dutch speakers) to further your knowledge? :) If you need more resources to help with other aspects of Dutch, I have made a document here which is full of links to help expand people's knowledge whilst learning Dutch :)

Blijf oefenen op Duolingo tot je geen fouten meer maakt.

Er zijn op internet nog veel andere nuttige sites om je Nederlands te verbeteren.

Veel succes toegewenst.

Thanks everybody!!!

And thanks Jane for the document! I will study it :-)

My plan right now is to keep my tree gold on Duolingo and join some of the language activities here in the Netherlands to practice talking. But I will look into the different resources as well.
