Finished German tree - TOTALLY GOLD !!
This is my first post.
I'm finally finished after 264 days with one freeze break, where I studied in the morning and forgot to go back to take a lesson later in the day. I woke up the next day in a panic, until I remembered that I "purchased" a freeze break. On the last question, of the last lesson, I hovered over the "Enter" key of my keyboard for minutes just so I could fully appreciate the anticipated completion of this great challenge. I've never studied a foreign language before. It wasn't required in school. This has been a wonderful experience. I plan on speaking some German during a toast that I'm giving at my son's wedding next week: Beatles - "and in the end, the love......" Thanks to everyone for all the questions posted within the lessons. They were very helpful. I know this is only the beginning - lots of vocabulary from the later lessons to try to remember, but I plan on continuing to refresh my skills daily, as well as visit the various sights suggested by other posts. Thank you Duolingo team!
Congratulations! And this achievement is particularly significant since you say you've never studied a foreign language before!
Congratulation to you on both your achievements, on finishing the tree and keeping it gold. I finished my tree but have a hard time keeping it gold to a point of thinking about giving up. I feel like Duo is playing Whack-A-Mole with me every day and new lessons wither. Anyway, my hat off to you on your double achievements
Hallo! Das ist wirklich super! Nur mal so aus Interesse: was glaubst du wie "gut" dein Deutsch dadurch geworden ist. Meinst Du, Du wärest in der Lage dich auf deutsch zu unterhalten, oder klappt das noch nicht? Got it? ND!
Das würde mich auch sehr interessieren. Nicht, dass man trotz eines Baumes aus Gold dennoch wie der Ochs vorm Berg steht...
I think I get it (sort of) but could you translate? I realize this is just the very beginning of a very long learning process, and douLingo is just one of many tools available to me. I am assuming that all posts to duoLingo are in the context of what the program provides as well as its limitations. Danke
Congratulations! I am only at level 6, but I will go all the way as you have. You are my newest role model to emulate!
Thank you all for your kind words of support. I've been refreshing six to eight lessons per day. It's funny, but it seems like the "pressure" is off now that I've finished the tree. I'm actually enjoying it more and am trying to fine-tune my learning and comprehension. Thanks again!
