I started since May 4th, I actually started the Duolingo with learning French, and in the middle, I started learning Spanish at the same time. And then in the middle again, I started learning German.

I was learning Spanish since a long time ago, but then while learning 3 languages at the same time, my school tasks and homework had gotten a lot more, harder, etc. So they took my time a lot. Even though I was finally free of those things, I wanted to relax so I was really lazy to even refresh one lesson. I opened Duolingo everyday, hoping that I would get the motivation to start again. Although I open Duolingo every time, I did not play it at all.

And then 2 months ago, I started it again. I was confused what language should I be focusing on. Then I ask some of my friends for suggestions, lots of them say French. But in here (Indonesia), French and German are super popular as a foreign language. Lots of them would answer "French" or "German" if you ask them what foreign language do they want to learn besides English.

(P.S: Exception for people who like K-pop and Anime/Manga/J-Pop, they would answer Korean and Japanese respectively.)

Since those languages are so popular, while Spanish, it is not very popular. I don't know why though. But, I see in Duolingo, Spanish is the most polished language here as I can see. There are many people who know German and French here, while Spanish is very rare. So, I might be useful for people who want to learn Spanish since in Indonesia since Spanish is very rare. (It's even so hard to find a Spanish class here, I looked everywhere and I still couldn't find it. Geez!)

So, 2 months ago, I started Spanish. But I was only refreshing the decayed skills, instead of learning new skills. But then, I braced myself and started learning new skills. The 1st skill was Adverbs and since then I continued learning more and more new skills until I conquered the tree skill.

-The end-

My tips are:

  • Focus on 1 language first before start learning the new one.

  • Do not just use Duolingo as your media of learning languages, try YouTube, Google, Netflix etc to find some entertainment in a language you are currently learning, such as music, movies, etc.

  • Find out all things that you have not understand, or things that are not taught by Duolingo (such as conjugation of vos in Spanish, etc).

  • Write down everything you've learnt, such as grammars, vocabularies, exceptions, idioms, etc.

  • Keep yourself motivated.

  • Never give up.

(P.S: I just looked up on my Spanish book, I started learning Spanish since Thursday, May 9th 2013.)

Well done, I am taking your advice and put German and Spanish on hold. It all is getting a bit to much.

thanks for the 6 tips! I also found it easy to start with multiple languages, but found it impeding my main [language] progress when I reached around 1/3rd of the way through the tree.
