Thanks to duolingo (and other external sources) I gained confidence in my Spanish. I actually applied for a job position that required fluency in at least 2 languages...I had to take an exam, which was terrifying. But I managed to impress the people with my "sub-par" Spanish skills and my charming personality. With my newly found confidence I started a youtube channel to practice speaking...(even if it is only to myself lol)

So thanks...I still have a long way to go, but having fun along the way.

here's my channel...if you want to help me with my poor grammar etc etc... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qogXqTIpLvw

Ciao

Wow, great story! That does sound pretty intense, taking an exam in another language entirely for a position, but sounds like you're making great moves in that direction! I watched part of your video link, and it looks like you're having fun along the way, keep it going!

I saw your video in youtube, singing is a good resource for learning, you speak very well...Did you reach that level with duolingo?

thank you, I used a combination of Duolingo, youtube videos, spanish language movies (with subs) and music...

my friend told me to watch a lot of telenovelas...and I tried but...they are too ridiculous lol

I am convinced reggaeton is a separate language :)
