I know getting about halfway through the Spanish tree put me wwaaaay ahead of my college Spanish class.

But Duolingo will not get you near fluency. Most agree it's a great way to start learning a language, taking you to a high beginner, and occasionally a low-intermediate level, where you can start to use more interesting learning materials.

It's not gonna teach you to fluency, but it is a great base. The only real way i think that i would ever become TOTALLY fluent (no matter what program i use) is by going to the country and being forced to use it.

My speaking ability in Italian is pretty poor, but I can read reasonably well - if slowly - and am reading a few books on the Kindle app to expand my vocabulary. It's quite fun being able to do that!

i i have tried that way with children books for vocab and reading practice its really helpful just not the best for my speaking and listening practice. but i will try the reading thing again
