just joined !!...with spanish ,help me out with tips if you have any! :)

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 :)

Hello, I saw the link to the German group in your profile. Asked to join (my name is Olga Fyodorova). I speak Russian (native), English (fluent), French about B2, German I guess about A1 or A2.

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 :).

Do I need Google+ to join?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sanda.golcea

Hey Lenkvist, you do need a gmail account, and it is a google+ group that I've created, yes.

I've just sent a request for the community :) I'm learning only German at the moment...and also, English isn't my native :)

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.

i'm gonna join, but i don't speak german too good. putem vorbi in romana daca mai sunt romani prin zona. +jimmyhumuhumunuculucuapua on google.
