I've started the French from Spanish course and so far I love it. The only thing I wish is that I would also gain experience and level up my Spanish at the same time. It makes sense too because you're practicing them both. Anyone else agree on this?

Well, not really, since that would be on a native english speaker's perspective, and the course is designed on the most part for native Spanish speakers.

That makes no sense to me, the course is meant to be for proficient French people to learn Spanish. Why would one level up on a language on is expected to know well already?

Because people like me that aren't native in Spanish are obviously going to use it as well.

Well, points are only there to motivate you and are completely meaningless in terms of knowledge. So, in my opinion, there is still no point to it. If you wish to get points for French, you can learn french, if you plan to learn spanish, then do so. You simply can't have your cake and eat it too, for now at least.

Yeah but by doing this course and translating between the two languages I'm practicing and learning them both.
