noe that i have completed my Spanish tree i was wondering how do i do a reverse tree?

April 28, 2017



hover over the spanish flag on the top bar, then click add new course, then click the "I speak" drop down and click Spanish, and then click the english language, then click switch to course


The tree you completed is Spanish for English speakers. The reverse tree would be English for Spanish speakers.

I highly recommend it!


It's simple: just turn your screen 180° degrees /s.

If you haven't already found it by now, direct link: https://www.duolingo.com/course/en/es/Learn-English-Online

On top just click the button to switch to the course.


Personally, I find reverse trees useful. I also find forward trees only grow more useful having finished them (namely, it seems there are more translations into target language). Reverse trees are good for the lessons, since the translations will almost all be into your target language, but they don't seem as good to me for "in depth" reviewing. The strengthening exercises will include super simple grammar exercises in English and multiple choices where you'll know the the answer just because only one option makes any sense, not even having to read the original Spanish.

So, in short, I'd recommend dividing further Duolingo Spanish effort between the reverse tree and reviewing/strengthening your forward tree.
