I started thinking in Spanish!

Finally, after 11 months of learning Spanish, I finally did it!

I was reading the words on this image, and completely forgot they were in another language. I didn't even subconsciously translate them into English in my head.

All the hard work really does pay off =D

Really good!

I had the same experience, when I was learning English (English is not my native language).

The most awesome experience was to dream in English. I am looking forward to get the same experience with Spanish.

Nice! I was writing a paper in Language Arts, and halfway through it I started writing in Spanish, and I didn't even notice until I went back and read it all.

That's so cool! Have you only been using Duolingo, or do you take an actual class? For me, I take a class and use this app. I can think in Spanish - or subconsciously translate some things!! I'm so excited to keep learning Spanish!

https://www.duolingo.com/Selma-Ibrahim

Nope, I've never taken a Spanish class. There aren't any here, anyway.

Everyone talks about peace,

but no one is trained for peace.

In this world, people train for competition,'

And competition is the beginning of every war.

It wasn't a literal translation, but I did my best =)

Congrats! Have you been learning only on duolingo or have you been supplementing with other things?

2 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/Selma-Ibrahim

Of course I've been supplementing with other things.

I watch YouTube videos and read books, I've translated articles and I used to write in Spanish in my diary (went back to English though :) I've also had several language partners and I listen to Spanish music :) Basically everything that invloves the language helps.

Are there any videos you can recommend?

https://www.duolingo.com/Selma-Ibrahim

Well, I'm learning Castillian Spanish, so I watch Youtubers from Spain. I don't really watch many videos in Latin American Spanish, in case that's the one you're learning.
