Spanish Tree 2.0-Now testing?

Several posts have been circulating lately, with users noticing slight variations of Spanish trees. I looked into it, and created trial account to see if I could view the new tree. Indeed I did. The most noticing everyone variation is the addition of a Food Two, as well as the addition of a Vocab 1-3* in place of the Abstract Objects skills. Some skills are longer, but few of the, have been split Which is honestly a disappointment. Overall, any improvements are nice, and great job to the Spanish team for making these updates!

So, what does that mean for those of us who have finished the tree? Will we find certain skills no longer golden so we can try the new exercises? Personally, I would like to see new units added to the end of the tree or a whole new tree, which is what we could really use but I welcome any improvements.

thats exactly what happened to me,a bunch of skills were uncompleted when i logged in,but there wasnt like a lot of new content,you most likely finish them all in a few min.yeah a whole new tree would be a real improvement, like a beginer tree and an advanced one

Great comment. I haven't seen or noticed a new tree, but I am starting to concentrate on Spanish more now, and feel disheartened at the size of some of the lessons, "past" for example. That lesson needs to be split in half or even thirds. Repetition is the key to success and there is so much new material there that the new vocabulary doesn't get a chance to sink in (at least for me...).

Great comment. Anything over six lessons is too long in my opinion.

Recently, there has been similar updates to English from Spanish tree. I appreciated new vocabulary associated with these new units. It is good to know that similar changes are coming to Spanish from English tree.

Where do you create a trial account or whatever to try it ?

I think he/she just made a new account simply to see if the tree is available. Since it was for the trial of the Spanish tree, I guess she/he called it a trial account. Just my guess.

That's exactly what I did. Good guess!

I haven't quite finished 1.0 yet but bring on 2.0!

I didn't see much difference. Plurals, Prepositions, Conjunctions and Colours have been removed, some additional vocabulary in Food 2, and Abstract Objects seems to have been renamed to Vocabulary. I hope the words earlier taught in the missing skills are still taught in some of the existing skills.
