I believe there is one more step not included in this map: the Evil Black Hole of Keeping Skills Gold...

That's a Duolingo - specific issue, I would have included direct/indirect pronouns but I'm sure some one would add:

  • rolling r's
  • understanding fast-talking native speakers
  • the difference between españa y latinoamérica

and many more challenges

I'm missing something from the picture: the dark forest of verb conjugations.

What do you eat inside there? ¿Tapas o tamales?

One advantage of being confidant of my ability NOT to learn a new language is that I can stay on the sunny path without guilt. I am delighted when I understand anything and my ambition is to speak like a toddler...so no scary subjunctives for me : ) Really enjoyed the much, much too truthful cartoon though…trying to learn a new language reminds us of how complicated communication can be even in our native tongue.

The subjunctive is a bit inscrutable, but also there's the issue around the preterite and imperfect past tenses, and when to choose which one. All three of these are tricky for English speakers, because we don't quite have those exact concepts in English.

Things were cruising along for me until I reached subjunctive. I thought I had a good handle on present, past (preterite) and future. I was even understanding used Gerund. And then subjunctive appeared. shiver
