What happens when you finish duolingo?

Duolingo does not make you fluent. Finishing the tree will only establish you as a beginner in the language. Keep using the tree to review, and also start doing the 'reverse' tree (learn English from your target language) for a whole new set of challenges. When you finish a language course, you get a golden owl!

Can you become fluent with duolingo?

You absolutely cannot become completely fluent with Duolingo alone. You can achieve limited basic fluency, as in very basic, but that's hardly a good definition. Duolingo will get you a high A2 or low B1. With other resources, expect a high B1 (B2 in reading if you use Immersion).

Is duolingo plus worth it?

The premium version, called Duolingo Plus, costs $6.99 per month. I tried it for a month, and, to be honest, I don't really think it's worth the price, unless you're traveling in a country where you don't have data service on your phone.

Is Filipino easy?

Tagalog or Filipino language is very easy to learn because it composes a very large bank of vocabulary from malay, sanskrit, chinese, japanese, spanish, english and arabic. For a Spanish-speaking person they all fairly easy to learn. Chavacano, further South is very much like Spanish, probably as much as 90% of it.

What is bronze league in duolingo?

The Leagues are a relatively new thing, you compete with other players in your league for dominance (through XP collected from sessions). The top 20 players in the Bronze League get promoted to Silver League for the next week. Then you can work your way up the leagues I believe by being promoted each week.

You can earn XP and rise in the ranks of your leaderboard. Then the top ten XP performers of that league will be “promoted” to a higher tier for the next week.

Why does my duolingo have health?

In Duolingo's own words…. Health is a way of pacing Duolingo lessons to discourage binging behavior, which is shown to be ineffective for learning a new language. You lose Health by answering incorrectly too many times. The way it works is like this… you start out with five units of Health.
