After a couple of years, I have finally finished the Spanish tree. The end was the best part because I could see that the end was near and it was so clear. My best accomplishment is finally being able to roll my Rs perfectly. I know that comes easily to most people but I considered quitting Spanish for a while since I could not pronounce the r. If I had to give advice to anyone out there, it would be: never give up, because if you don't understand something, it will definitely be clear to you in a few lessons. I found it best to just keep moving, even if something was unclear, because it always worked out after a little while. Spanish has been a gift to me, and so has duolingo. I would suggest watching "Diez Minutos", a beautiful Spanish short, or reading Spanish books. Anyways, now for German and the reverse Spanish tree!

Good for you! It's nice to hear that. I recomend you keep on the process of the language learning. Try to improve your new skills with natives or students. You are ready to speak Spanish. If you learnt language, it will be easier to learn another. Keep doing your best! Good luck. Have a nice day.

Congratulations! I couldn't at first roll my r's too! I was so jealous of everyone who could (now that's me with whistling)! Good luck on your next adventures!

Well said! Perseverance always pays off in the end. And I have to admit, it feels great to be able to roll those R's... especially none of the languages I know needs that. Good luck in your learning journey.

Hi! Did you notice any change in the way you hear and comprehend the spoken language? When I watch Spanish stations, I am currently catching a few familiar phrases and words. (Admittedly, you are further ahead in your studies than I am.) Thanks for your story.

Before, I was only able to pick out a few words, but as I have continued practicing, I have definitely seen an improvement, and I can now understand the meaning of things that I hear. I hope this helped!

Wow!!! Amazing!! Congrats, you are an inspiration. Question: You mentioned to keep moving even if you don't understand something it will become clear in a few lessons. I have a tendency to study one area for a long time before moving forward as I'm afraid I will forget or not learn thoroughly. Do you feel comfortable speaking now? Conversational? Or are you just able to understand? I'm trying to find ways to learn faster than I have been- and maybe going through my tree quicker is the answer.

For everyone, the method is different. At the beginning of the tree, I would do exactly what you said: move slowly through the tree, which worked fine. A friend mentioned to me that it would be easier to move faster, and so I tried this method. In my opinion, it worked a lot better for me, but that is different for everyone. I suggest you try it if you feel this could help!
