the German course size

I was wondering how many words are in the course right now.. and it would be nice if an estimation of the time that will take you to finish milestones based on your current speed.

Hi Rezan,
the German course currently has 3000 words to play through. We will be adding more over the next few months.

An estimated time to finish milestones is a great idea! We have talked about some as well and will consider adding it at some point int the future.
Let us know how you like the German course!

Happy holidays!

How many words are there now, almost seven months later? I'm trying to estimate how long it will take to go through the course but it's difficult without knowing how many words there are. I also second the suggestion about estimated completion time.

I don't think it's useful to try to set a target end date like that. It will lead to you slacking or going too hard. Plus if they add words, then your target end date becomes wrong forever.

@SMN, I'm a regular user who has "finished" the course. According to the Vocabulary bar, I've studied 3942 words, so we can assume that's the current amount.

I finished the course and the current vocabulary counter is 3937. What would be really useful would be some community extension. But this is a more general topic idea that has probably been discussed elsewhere in the forum.

@pascal-geoloeg_ist-gula Hey Pascal! Congrats on finishing the course. :) Can you explain what you mean by 'community extension'?

Hi @Lisa-Lingvist ,
let me rephrase! :)
I would like a way for the community to enrich the vocabulary of any language pair. A pretty advanced example is (http://dict.cc) for pure dictionaries. Those additions would then be available for review by the community. And when seeing such a new card on the main app, it would be recognizable by any sort of additional UI element, a small icon next to the help/microphone area for example.
I would be in such case a big contributor! :)
Cheers,
Pascal

Ahhhh, I'm so close to finishing! The past couple weeks I've gotten single-digit new cards so often, though, so it's slowed to a snail's pace! 3800 down, 150-ish to go. I used to do that many new ones a week. I'm losing my grip on realityyyyyyy XD

@Mateusz-Wojnarowicz you can keep up-to-date with the course size in this thread.
