  5. I reached level 25 in Spanish…

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/m.tastic

I reached level 25 in Spanish :)

I'm so happy :) When I was a beginner, I always looked up to those who had level 25s. They seemed so experienced. And even though it's not true all of the time, I'm glad to join the ranks of many of the people I look up to. All I can hope is that I can inspire others to keep on learning, just as others helped inspire me.

Stay fantastic, -M

Congratulations! It`s a nice view from up here.

It's great, I agree.

Reaching level 25 always felt so impossible to me, and then one day there I was. It's a great feeling. Welcome to the club! :D

Remember not to tell anyone about the secret club.

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ferdo76

You must already be in some higher level of that club? As you have reached level 25 in two languages.

Just keep on going. It gets harder, but you'll persevere through it. :)

When did you begin, m.tastic?

June 18, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/m.tastic

107 days ago :)

June 21, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Suzy581476

Wow - I'm 110 days and only level 16 :( Did you spend hours on Duolingo every day? Or have you and advice on faster ways to move up levels... I seem to spend some days re-doing gold disks that need re-doing!

June 21, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/m.tastic

I spend more time than usual on Duolingo. Also, you can level up really quickly with Immersion. If you translate enough, you can get a lot of XP. Don't worry if it takes you a bit longer, everyone has their own pace. As long as you're learning, it really doesn't matter how long it takes for you to reach a certain level.

How on earth do you move on from 14? I have been working really hard but seem no nearer and I can't find out how much longer it might take, or how many points I have to get!

June 18, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/kelvin5473

You have to go to immersion in order to get more points

June 18, 2015

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

Ah! I only have an IPad mini and it is hard to do the translations on it! It moves around! However, thanks so much, I will persevere! I am on holiday and away from the home computer!

June 18, 2015

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

Just keep going! :-) I started my Spanish tree two years ago. I have only done translations maybe once or twice. Still you can reach the higher levels by keeping your tree golden. You can also earn more points by doing a time practice on the website (each correct answer is one point). That should also work on an iPad mini.

June 19, 2015

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

Not really, I really have not done much immersion. It will take longer.

Good luck :)

Congrats on your accomplishment. I, too, am chasing the vaunted level 25 and can appreciate the amount of time and effort it took to reach your goal. I wish you continued success with your language studies.

June 19, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/m.tastic

Thanks :) You'll get to 25 soon, it's inevitable.

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/m.tastic

Why, thank you :) And from the looks of it, it won't be long until you get to level 25.

June 29, 2015

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

That's excellent, but, is there something special about Level 25? Is it the maximum level?

June 19, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Usagiboy7

Yup!

June 19, 2015

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

Why is there a maximum? Couldn't Duolingo just keep rewarding you fer practicing more?

June 20, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Andreas83

I guess they could double the number of points until it is just ridiculously hard to go higher!

June 20, 2015

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

Congratulations!!! keep going! ;)

Congratulations, There are still so many ways we can improve our language skills. I have enjoyed a few passes through the 90 lessons of Complete Spanish , by Language Transfer ( worth a goggle and it is another great free resource). That has helped my speaking and on the fly conversation greatly. But the big thing is talking to people in Spanish! Find ways to do it. Enjoy!

June 20, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/m.tastic

I agree :) There's nothing that beats real human interaction.

June 29, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ZachAttack777

WOW! That sounds so awesome! I would totally Love Getting to that super HIGH level I now am making a statement by practicing every day for three whole months. Great Job to the people that are at such a high level. I will continue to practice...and for your outstanding work I will give ya five lingots

June 21, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/m.tastic

Thank you :) If you practice everyday, you'll get to level 25 in no time.

June 21, 2015

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

It's a great Goal you have set for yourself there! Practice every day! It's easy to have a 90 day streak! 26 days ago, I decided that I will go for a 365 day Streak. Why? Crazy? No! Simply saw people with even more! And, now a days, I wake up to Duolingo. Not my mail, not Facebook, Duolingo. I am still yet long way to go, but will get there for sure! Just like you will in 90 days :D

¡Felicidades! Espero obtener la misma en unos meses.

Ahora mismo tienes exactamente 30 mil XP. ¿Esto está a propósito? ¿Y por qué el foro todavía indica nivel 24? Debe ser un error de software. Acaso necesitas un punto más para que el foro muestre nivel 25.

Congratulations! That has been an important achieve in your learning, just keep the daily practice and go ahead!

Your experience is very inspirer for everyone here on Duolingo, thanks for sharing it with us. Besides, your streak is amazing too, keep it and increase it!!

I've achieved the level 25 in both trees, english from spanish and also my reverse tree, spanish from english. Now I'm trying to learn some portuguese for native english speakers (I'm a native spanish speaker and writing in english is still hard for me haha).

There are many new challenges waiting for you out there :)

Good bye and I wish you all the best for you!
