I've finished my Spanish tree! :)

I started with my Spanish seven months ago and had no expectations, just wanted to learn a few words. Soon after that,I started to listen Spanish bands and even found Spanish radio stations. That obviously wasn't enough :D, so my next goal was to find Spanish television series and someone here mentioned Gran Hotel. It was great, very interesting, I highly recommend it! My journey started with ˝a few words wish˝and today I know more than 2000 words! My next goal is to complete the reverse tree, to brush up my English skills as well. I'm not writing this to brag about myself, but to express my gratitude to all Duolingo developers and others who made this wonderful learn & play app. I really can't thank you enough. And also thanks to everyone in this lovely and supportive community. Muchas gracias por todo! ;)

EDIT: Just to inform you about how I learned it and how much I can speak (I copied this text from my answer in the comment section down below ): I can read and understand news, songs and some texts, of course not perfectly and I always have google translator with me to help me with the new words, but it goes surprisingly quickly. I can express myself in basic phrases, enough for someone to understand me (or I hope so :D ). It helps a lot when you surround yourself with the target language and when you use other learning materials. For example, you won't learn grammar good, but there is a wonderful site - Study Spanish. Then you have two great series for beginners- Mi Vida Loca and Destinos --- both super interesting and very, very helpful. Duolingo is a great app but don't expect to be fluent once you finish the tree. Every day is a new challenge for language learners, and Duolingo does just that- keeps us motivated to come here and do some learning. :)

Congrats! I just finished my Spanish learning tree as well. My experience has been somewhat similar to yours. And guess what, I have myself recently completed watching Gran Hotel.

Congratulations! Do you mind if I ask how much spanish you can speak by the end of the tree? Can you understand tv shows/books without much translations? I'm really curious about how much I'll be able to speak by the end of the tree

Wow, that's still great! I feel like I've become a bit impatient because I want to be conversing fully in the shortest time possible :) but I know that that won't be possible for some time. I hope I'll be able to become as fluent as you too :)
