Here in duolingo, what is the best course for you? I love the French and Spanish course, but I think German did the best job. The skills contain fewer lessons (not like the Spanish course with 10 lessons in consecutive skills causing people to be less motivated-ish). Also, in the German course they add all necessary tips and notes that are accessible and very useful (French and specially Spanish have few/ no tips and notes in the latter part of the tree where help and guidance to that skill is highly demanded) German also teaches more useful daily phrases and sounds modern and colloquial.That's all. How about you? Share your experience below :)

The Russian course is simply amazing, incredibly well thought out. Clearly the Russian team put a lot of work into it, and I like the lesson notes that are complex yet concise, and not dumbed down in any way.

True! I appreciate their effort but some are not comprehensive (i'm not a native english speaker) but still thumbs up for the russian course!

I'm enjoying the Russian course. I studied Russian for fun at university for 3 years, but that was a long time ago. I reckon I've learnt more from the DL po-russki course in a month than I did in 3 years of classes.

I will try the French tree soon, I don't know about the Spanish one but the German 2.0 tree is incredibly good!

Well, I'm only doing the French and German trees at the moment, and I have to say that I love them both. I do agree that German has the more, as you said, modern tree, and there are a lot of sentences that I would never use in English in the French tree. But I think they are both brilliant!

I personally agree with you, French and Spanish trees are good, but not as good as the German one. I also love the Esperanto tree, it's one of the best trees I have ever worked on ! :)

Italian and Portuguese are pretty good. Let's see how Catalan and Turkish go once I'm done

Though admittedly I can't compare it to any other Duo trees, I've been pretty happy with the Esperanto tree. I'm about 70% of the way through, and every lesson has had significant amounts of notes and tips, and most sentences have human-recorded audio. I also appreciate that tips I sometimes get when I use a word that's close to, but not exactly, correct, such as "soon" instead of "immediately". It's not perfect yet, but for still being in beta I'm favorably impressed.

Yeah, I enjoy the German tree for English speakers. I've completed German through one for Spanish speakers, but the one for English speakers is simply enjoyable.
