I'm so proud I posted my progress on facebook for the first time. Now, I need to turn it gold, raise my level, and someday do the reverse tree.

Thank you, duolingo!

    How long have you been on here? It seems everyone's finishing their trees way before me and I'm still halfway through

    Andrew, some people fly through it - others don't. Personally I don't advance until my whole tree is gold. I still have about 20 skills to learn before my tree is complete. Don't compare your movie to someone else's snapshot!

    Thanks for the advice! That's exactly what I'm doing but I thought maybe everyone was in on some secret I didn't know :P

    I was attempting to just finish the tree without "strengthening" and I had to stop and do the strengthening because I found that I just wasn't remembering earlier lessons.

    Andrew, I made a goal of 30xp, 20 was strengthening, and 10 was a new skill. Then if I had more time, I would keep that ratio up unless their were none to strengthen and everything went into new skills. It then became easier to keep the leaves golden. The higher you move up in the tree, it seems, the less often the lower leaves loose their bars. This kept things interesting for me and kept out the frustration. Once I had the tree finished and all golden, I moved onto the reverse tree and did the same to it while coming back to the regular tree to keep it golden. It's fairly easy now to keep them both golden. Good luck and keep up the practice.

    i really like that technique of 20 strengthening and 10 new. That helps me quite a bit. I'm going to try that.

    Consistency is key. If you want to succeed in learning any language, it requires daily practice. :)

    I've been on at least at year. Unfortunately, I don't remember exactly when I started. I travelled a lot this summer couldn't do duolingo as much as I try at home. I try to do a lesson a day. Keeping my streak is important to me, but I supplement duolingo with many other resources.

    like what resources? I've been trying to learn Spanish for a few years but now I'm using more than one resource. What are you using?

    I have taken courses in the past and I own many books, textbooks, and audio files. I've also used LingQ. I watch videos and movies in Spanish on DVD, Amazon, Hulu, and YouTube. The activity that brings me the most progress, though, is talking to people. What do you use?

    not nearly enough according to your list. I'm learning more from Duo-lingo than i did with Rosetta stone I feel like I'm progressing more. I've purchased some practice books. and I haven't had much luck watching films or shows on tv yet. I am going to the Mexican riviera for soon so i will try to speak more.
    That is soooo hard for me. But it's fun. I've never heard Ling?. What is that?

    And when you finished the whole tree, were you much more advanced than you were when you began? I think I have to go back and spend more time with the vocabulary.

    I had a base before I started duo lingo. Duo helped with some vocabulary and unfamiliar verb tenses. Lingq is a site with articles to read and ways to track vocabulary.

      Great job! Keep at it everyday. It becomes easy to keep it golden. I've completed both trees and now am able to end the day with each one golden. The longer you stay consistent, the easier it gets!

      If you do the reverse tree (I completed Spanish from English, so I'd be doing English from Spanish), will all my Spanish progress be deleted? Or does that only happen if a person learns English from two different languages?

      Just wondering because instead normally it says, "Start Course" but when I went to the English from Spanish course it says, "Switch to Course."
