When did you start? How did you apply yourself? Did you hurry on through the lessons or did you redo the lessons a lot? How well do you feel you have been able to assimulate the instruction? Do you feel it has solidly stuck? What are your plans for any furtherance of any more more study of Spanish, if any exist?

I created my duolingo account back in 2012, but I only really did it seriously about 40 days ago. I had randomly realised how amazing the website actually was and how stupid I was not to take that opportunity (no regrets!). That was when I had decided I was going to finish the tree by the 1rst of April - and I did! Surprisingly, it all just stuck in my brain, with very little effort (yay). I guess I can attribute that to the fact that, in addition to the amazing website, I would try to speak spanish as much as possible in my day to day life. For example, during my annoying classes I would just translate in my mind what the teacher was saying, or I would just imagine a discussion in my head, wich helped me a lot because it not only made me apply the stuff I learned here, but it also made the creation of sentences become so much more natural and easy for me. I was also really motivated and positive about the whole thing. I do indeed plan to continue my learning of the language until I achieve fluency, while I learn other languages. I best friend is Spanish so I said to him that I'd only answer him (in spanish) if he speaks to me in spanish... I am currently reading as much as possible and am watching some Spanish movies too.

What a great idea, creating conversations in one's head. When I finish the tree I will do that, if not sooner.

I want to be able to watch movies, too, with Spanish switched on. Don't need Spanish movies for that. At this point I can only catch occasional words, myself. But I am not yet even half way through the tree, got lots yet to learn, and I have no dead line set.

Thanks for the great and informative response.

I hear you! Some days, I can just effortlessly translate the sentences it presents me. Other days, it's like I've never seen them before. I'm that person who has to take notes when I learn something new, so my latest effort is to strengthen my skills without using my notes. I'm still terrible at verb conjugation, but at least I'm getting in the right ballpark for most of it. :)

A written conversation you mean, because for the speaking skills, Duo is not as good.

I can actually quite easily have at least basic conversations, enough to say I "speak" the language, but I still need to practice before I achieve actual fluency.

I'm also a junior! This duolingo thing, if you dedicate yourself to finishing it, will blow your spanish skills out of proportion and what you will be learning at school will be practically a joke ;) It was literally about 10X more efficient than school for me (for the time spent)
