german B1 portuguese A2-
so how would you polyglots feel about it?
hey ronnie, where are you from?
for spanish you should try to listen to bachata and salsa song, if you have spotify just search for a bachata playlist, it's very passive, but it does develop your listening skill a lot, and helps you remember words. Bachata and salsa songs are 90% in spanish so you can't go wrong looking for that. If you're in the USA go to salsa classes - a lot of people going there are spanish-speakers. In europe that's not really the case.
Then look for movies. If you're a netflix user just go to foreign movies, put english subtitles, and watch.
and ofc, do a lesson-a-day on duolingo: while songs and movies help the hearing/listening part, duolingo is great for the writing part :)
My biggest tip for you is not to exagerate and make a spanish-speaking movie marathon. but instead to do something in spanish every day :)
Hi Olga, you're in the group now, I know I haven't really made it official, so this is the link : https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/106458927019187206531?cfem=1 . it's meant to be a conversation table (stammtisch) for us on duolingo to practice german :).
Hi my name is Tim and I'd like to join the group. I can read basic German pretty well (had 3 years in school, but also forgot a lot), and need practice/experience actually writing and speaking it properly. I live and normally work in the Netherlands, but we're part of a large German company and will be visiting again next week. I have Google+ already.
