Hi everybody,

I was wondering about the amount of words each language is teaching. I have finished two trees until now - Italian and spanish, and starting now the german one. In Italian I have learned about 950 words, in spanish only 500. And as I said I finished the trees so it seems pretty final.... Why such a great contrast?

I can understand if Italians use more words in a phrase but such a difference? Or is it just that the Spanish tree teaches less, and if so why? can it do more?

All the best Gaddiel

PS : can anyone tell me how much words I'm gonna finish with in german?

I can only tell you that there have been some recent changes. At the moment the Spanish word section says we know 502 words, but in reality more words than that are used on this site.

Why such a great contrast? I'm guessing that the group that created the Spanish course is different from the group that created the Italian.

Curious where did you find the amount of words in the tree. I never looked it up.

Oh, I thought he was discussing the total amount of words in the Spanish tree compared to the Italian tree.

No me importa sobre la cantidad de las palabras lo que Duolingo cree que sé.

I'm just hoping that it's part of an update that allows for a new section of more advanced topics.

By the way - I discovered some online Quechua audio files: http://www1.radiopublica.ec/interna.php?c=1197
Which Indiana Jones learned and used in the most recent movie. Unrelated, but interesting.
