This has been fun. Looking forward to reinforcing my Spanish, reaching a 100 day streak (one week to go) and spend more time on French and Italian. Thanks, Duolingo.

What is the reverse course?

He must mean English for Spanish speakers, as a way to test ones knowledge of Spanish?

Yes, you can do it, it's good because you revise everything. I do it and that helps me remember somethings, my english's not good yet, but it keeps getting better day by day.

I am thinking that you mean what Skutir wrote above. I did think about using the English for Spanish speakers course. Do you think this is a good way to reinforce what I am learning?

I am almost finished with my Spanish tree. I did a French for Spanish speakers lesson and while it was a bit of a challenge, it was really fun to be thinking in two languages and neither of them are my native language! That is another good way to strengthen a strong language, and you get to work on a weaker language at the same time. It is fun, but a lot of work.

it's called triangulating, to learn a third language from a second. And it can be very reinforcing for the second language as well as the new one.

@CecilieO,

I never realized there was another word for it. Thanks for sharing! I'll probably still call it laddering because that's what people have been calling it here on Duolingo. But, it's good to know what else people might call it :)

I have done a few lessons now in the Spanish to English course (and I think the idea of using a third language to learn the second is a great idea). I think this will definitely help reinforce my usage of Spanish.

I would feel really bad if he was on a 99 day streak, and he forgot to log on, or there was connection failure on his internet. Hope I didn't jinx it. Good luck!

That's why they invented the Streak Freeze in the Lingot Store.

Be sure to buy the streak freeze BEFORE you need it. I didn't know to do that, and lost my 182-day streak a while ago. Good luck to you.

Thank you for the encouragement! I've never posted on Duolingo before and to get so much positive feedback (and some lingots...I didn't know you could give lingots to others!) is very inspiring. Thanks for the kind words.

I'm not sure that I can give you an accurate answer. I believe that if I was presently in a setting where I could begin to speak Spanish on a regular basis that I would grow in my understanding and use of it much better. I think completing the tree is a great start. I plan to redo the second half of the tree to reinforce what I understood and strengthen areas where I am still confused. I did this with the first half of the tree after I got to the mid section of the course.

Hope that helps. Buena suerte!
