I always recommend reading the Tips and Notes section of each skill.

Practicing a little bit every day is better than doing a marathon every weekend.

Say the sentences along with Duo even if it's not a pronunciation exercise.

Review a lot. If you are bored, do a new lesson or two. If you are at all confused, quit doing new lessons and stick to reviews for a while.

Have fun!!

My advice, based on my experience, and based on how Duolingo is designed:

  1. Practise every day. Little and often works better, and is more fun.

  2. Above all else, keep the tree gold. Weakened skills are how duolingo's spaced recognition algorithms tell you the best time to revise each word. If you revise the skills at the times Duolingo suggests, you'll find it works really well.

  3. Peek when you need to, but not otherwise. Peeking helps you learn the words you need to know, and it tells Duolingo that you need to practise them more often.

  4. If you're comfortable with the difficulty of the skills you're strengthening, and you're getting most questions right, (and if you have time,) do a new lesson or two. Otherwise, use strengthen skills.

  5. Use review lesson after every lesson, to remind yourself about the correct versions of what you got wrong.

  6. Don't worry about getting questions wrong. Your aim isn't to be perfect now, but to be better in the future. Getting questions wrong is part of the process.

  7. Use Wiktionary to look up the etymology of words you find hard to remember. Knowing where a word comes from and where it fits really helps.

  8. Read about the grammar of the language you're learning. It's loads easier to have the patterns explained to you, rather than figuring them out for yourself. Read them briefly, and don't worry if you don't understand them the first time you read them. Come back to them from time to time to help you sort out the bits of the language you're finding difficult. The tips and notes sections are fine, but there are plenty of resources elsewhere on the web, most of which are more comprehensive. I like Wikipedia's grammar articles, e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_grammar

Good luck :)

I guess you just try to learn and study every day? Maybe? That's what I do, but I usually do it when I'm at school and supposed to be learning SOS but anyway... Try learn it in your spare time maybe

-i found spanish conjugation hard to learn. -I thought it were the disenchantments of aging. But then i read repetition, repetition......So practice means reps. It's easy to get speed blind. . Yes, story of my life. I tried to get more and more, now i take steps back. Repetition

I would never give up! If you ever get frustrated or confused, try reading the notes and tips in each section or ask your fellow duolingo users! Also I would practice a little everyday! Practice makes perfect. And, if you ever struggle to remember something, try writing it down or saying it out loud. Sometimes writing something down can help you remember! Good luck with your learning!

i would start learning an easy language or one you kind of already know, then work your way up to the harder ones. if you practice a lot every day, you can fly through the courses and learn a bunch of different languages.

you could also start following people and discuss different languages with them.
