  5. No levels after 15 in Italian…


No levels after 15 in Italian. The next symbol is an owl with no instructions.

Reached level 15 in Italian yesterday. There are no symbols allowing me to continue. What is next?

You've reached and completed the last skills of the Tree.

Levels are something else: they only reflect the number of XP your earned up to now. So the Tree is finished but you still can earn XP points by strengthening your italian or, said the other way around, you can strengthened your Italian by keeping your all your skills golded and this will (little by little) make you progress up to level 25 by earning XP.


Hey Jrikhal, what's your native language? I noticed some minor errors in your post:

"So the Tree":

Tree is not a proper noun, so it shouldn't be capitalized. This should instead just read as "So the tree..."

"You can strengthened your Italian by keeping all your skills golded":

You shouldn't be using past tense here. You should say "strengthen" (present tense) and either "gilded" (past tense of "to gild"; to make something gold) or "golden" (to be gold). So your sentence should read thus: "You can strengthen your Italian by keeping all your skills (gilded|golden)."


French. ;)
Thx for the corrections, it really helps.

Arf, strengthen seems so not like a verb to me that I always make mistakes on it. ;)

Again: thx, I really appreciate it!


If immersion is available in Italian, you can also earn xp by doing translation.


This means that you have completed the entire course. Congratulations!


Thank you for being very helpful. Not knowing level 15 was the last, I decided to go to the beginning after level 14 and review all lessons including the first sections that I had tested out of. Essentially I have done the program twice. Since I have studied Italian on and off over the years with other programs including Rosetta I am very disappointed that my Duolingo fluency is only 18%. Does anyone know how this is measured? I don't want to give up my daily practice . In addition to the strengthen skills feature I will begin again and use the Test Out feature instead of the individual lessons. Best of luck to everyone!


Not knowing level 15 was the last

It is not the last level.

Does anyone know how this is measured?

You can find some elements in this official statement.


All of my lessons are greyed out! How do I continue?
