Try reviewing your lessons, practicing/refreshing. You should also try reading the Spanish discussion forum if you don't understand something.

You could also combine Duolingo with other learning resources. Keep in mind you should ask a lot of questions, be determined, work on it every day, so you remember what you've learned.

Speaking with Spanish natives should also help, and listening to Spanish movies/music will improve your vocabulary and listening skills.

That's basically it.

Keep your tree gold! My biggest regret is not keeping up with it and instead jumping ahead to new levels. Now I'm trying to level slowly while at the same time make my tree gold, which is becoming a really slow and painful process because I have to review about half the tree now. It makes me loose some motivation and momentum! To learn faster, really just put in the time! I signed up on the app to do 30 minutes a day, this is not always possible so I spend a lot of time during the weekend catching up. Also keep your streak going as a way of motivation, which bacily means you did a little bit every day. If Spanish (or any other language) is your first second language it's going to be a bit slower going, but as long as you are stubborn and committed you'll get there eventually. Just do a little every day! Also try to use additional information and resources. For example if you learn a new verb in a certain tense, do a quick web search to see what all it's conjugations look like, that way you can get a fuller idea instead of learning the slow way of trial and error. And find all the media you can in Spanish. for example 90% of all the music i listen to are in the languages i'm learning, it is lucky that I don't like that much music in English! :-) I'd also recommend that you look for Pimsleur or Micheal Thomas, those are 2 well know audio courses that could help you practice your speaking and grammar a bit more, though I wouldn't pay for them but instead borrow them at a library or elsewhere. Also there are 100s of Spanish podcasts on the internet, I even found podcast that does slow news reports. And importantly start speaking a little bit of Spanish immediately and make tones of mistakes so that you can learn from them! Learning a second language takes a lot of time, but it is one of the best investments you can do with your time! Best of luck!

What Senlando said "...if you learn a new verb in a certain tense, do a quick web search to see what all it's conjugations look like...". Here's a link: http://conjugation.org/ :)
