Completed Spanish Tree!

I'm happy to say I completed my Spanish tree. :) I downloaded Duolingo on September 25, 2016, but /actually/ started learning on January 24, 2017, and finished on July 30, 2017. There were some hard lessons, but it was quite easy and a lot of fun. Writing everything in my Spanish dedicated notebook definitely kept me going, it made things a lot better. I'm going to try the reverse tree soon!

I just have one question, what kind of stuff is in your Spanish notebook? Im think of making a Dutch one.

Well, each time I started a new lesson on Duo, I'd put the lesson name at the top of the page, then write each new Spanish word down with the English translation next to it. I'd try to keep it as neat as possible. Every day, I'd open up my notebook, and read out loud everything I've written down, memorizing it. You can write down names of TV shows in your target language, and really anything else, as long as it's related to the language. Go on different websites and write down anything useful, like tips on pronunciation or slang words. One thing I suggest is learning how to pronounce the words as best as you can, so you don't have to write the pronunciation of each word down (it takes up a lot of space.)

For aesthetic reasons, I'm going to put Mexico's and Germany's geography map on the outside of my Spanish and German notebook. Just have fun!

Here's a little example of what I do (I can't make it spaced out properly on here): La fruta (fruit), La fresa (strawberry), La comida (food), El azúcar (sugar), El arroz (rice), El huevo (egg)

¿Cómo vas a usar tu idioma nuevo? :)

¡Bien hecho, Jaclyn!

¡Por supuesto! Pero, estoy nerviosa y tímida cuando se trata de hablar en español... Yo hablo español con mi amiga Venezolana, pero cuando se trata de hablar con extraños, tengo problemas y no puedo encontrar las palabras. ¿Cualquier consejo?

Parece ser un problema con tu confianza en tu mismo. Habla con tu familia en español, aunque no te entiendan. Necesitas hablar más para que puedas hablar con cualquiera.

Tienes razón. Yo estaba haciendo que durante un tiempo, pero me he detenido. Voy a empezar de nuevo. Muchas gracias mi amigo. :)

De nada, mi amiga. :)

Congratulations! (I also write down my words in a notebook for school and stuff because then it's easier to go through them and everything.)

Exactly! Makes things less stressful.
