After Duolingo

Hey everyone,

I was wondering, I am since a few days very busy with spanish on Duolingo, but what will be my level of spanish if I have finished all the excercises in the European way of A1/2 B1/2 etc. ? Ofcourse, I know that I have to go on with repeating everything, but I am so curious what my level will be... Can someone please help me with finding out?!

Bye, Teijmen (The Netherlands)

It will be quite low, maybe A2. You need to do much more than Duolingo to be fluent, but Duolingo certainly helps. I'd recommend listening to Spanish radio, keep reviewing on Duolingo, checking out other language websites aswell. Reading Spanish books will also help.

If you graduate from Duolingo, it is probable that you can start with a textbook without much pain that beginners usually suffer, and it is possible for you to learn a textbook by yourself. Before buying a textbook, you might have an online placement test.

P.S. Meanwhile, if you like reading a grammar book, get and read one. If you want to prepare yourself for a language examination, make sure to read (and remember?) a grammar book.

A grammar book/text book can help for an exam or reviewing words, but if he wants to be fluent it will require a lot more resources.

Thanks for pointing out that. I learned German with a textbook, a dictionary, and a grammar book. Now I can speak German, but in some complex cases I have to close my eyes so that a grammar exercise appears before my eyes, and I fill in the desired words very quickly, and then I read it out. If I had had more exercises in some other, practical forms, I would have been better off. If I want to obtain a nice score in TestDaF, I will look for a better learner or a native speaker to speak with, rather than reciting my three books.

Meanwhile, my English is taught with a sea of exercise problems at school in 8 years, about tens of thousands of problems. They are so numerous and so repetitive that in my vision the correct answers were highlighted when I sit for examinations.

That will depend entirely on you. How much you put into it and if you use other resources. There is no magic competency level from finishing a course.
