Once I completed the English-German tree, two languages I am fluent in, in a few minutes. It was just for fun, and I have to say that I felt akward typing the German answers. They were all correct and good for learners, but not the way I would say it. I proposed some alternative answers, a few of which are now part of the tree.

Only completed Dutch, and it took around 38 days, but I wasn't rushing. I did around 150 xp/day, and it's hard to say, but it probably took about 1 hour a day or so.

Five days for Ukrainian. Don't remember how many hours/day. I didn't have any Ukrainian prior to starting, but my knowledge of Russian helped a lot.

Well, a bit - I mean, it's only really a basic course, and it hasn't been my top priority anyway :) But yeah, a bit. I don't think on its own it would get you fluent.

About 20 minutes, Spanish tree for English Speakers. I tested out almost the whole tree, then I tested out one unit left. Other than that, I usually don't rush through the trees, it takes me months to complete them.

A week for Esperanto, I think I spent a couple of hours a day on it. I think it would be an interesting challenge to see if someone new to Esperanto could complete it in a day (without testing out), since the grammar is so simple and the vocabulary similar to English.

Well, I am not finding it simple. I have problems with memorization of words.

It seems it is gonna take me some time to complete the Esperanto tree. It is not as easy as I usually read. It could be it is just my case.
