German->English/French/Spanish trees

Has anyone tried doing the German->English tree? Or French/Spanish?

I got bored doing the G/E tree, as it was loads of the same content, so now I'm trying it with French.

How have you found it, learning from German? It's pretty tough because of the cases - you have to know exactly how nominative, accusative, dative and genitive work. But for that reason, it's great for advanced learners because you can revise the key structures.

Have you learned another language through German?

I'm German learning Spanish and English. All in both directions because a walk looks different when going the opposite way. Nevertheless, vocabulary appears to be limited and all three courses are using similar or identical phrases.

I have recently finished the "English from German" tree and I am half way there in the "Spanish from German" and "French from German" trees (previously I completed the "German from English" and "German from Spanish" trees).

I really like all these trees.

I've completed the English, French, and Spanish trees from German and would definitely recommend it. It reminds me of the good old days when Duolingo lessons actually requested L1->L2 translations more than 2% of the time :).

I've done the German from Spanish and German from English trees. In both cases it required way to frequent repetition of things I knew well. I also got a little annoyed how many times they made me review the future tense, since really you are practicing the one verb "werden" over and over again. Same for conditional ... but it was worse since I had to type the "ü" in "würden", which is not on my keyboard :-)

Don't shoot me, but I was thinking of doing German to English and/or Spanish, but on a different platform/ap. Any suggestions for a good German to Spanish program?
