Where are the lessons??

Hi - it seems that there are 2 options - one is 'Strengthen Skills' which seems to be quizzes, and the other is 'Real World Practice'. Are there any actual lessons that I can go thru before I take the quizzes?? How/where do I access them?? tks

The quizes are the lessons. They start off easy and gentle, introducing you to basic words. You may like to get a dictionary and a book on grammar although there are some students who do not need them. Otherwise, you learn by doing the quizes. It is surprisingly effective.

All the skills of the tree are the lessons. You start with the Basics 1 and so on. The "Strengthen Skills" is for practice (But in general, I mean: Of all the lessons you've learned), while the "Strengthen Skills" in each lesson is only for that lesson, which is really useful. I know it may sound strange, but it's not! That way, you don't have to see a list of words you have to memorize or a lot of lines of explanations. Not at all! You only have to enter to the skill and hover the new words. That means, you learn vocabulary and sentence structure by writing funny sentences.

Yes, I know! :D That was what I meant, lol, I guess it's not clear, like: "The lessons are here, inside. So, she has to click there to find the lessons". But thanks! :D You're always there, @Usagiboy7 ;)

What is that real world practice, I don't have that. Or maybe I need to get to a certain level?

The real world practice is in the Emerson tab at the top of the screen. It allows you to translate documents from your target language. You can select from pages that others have uploaded or you can upload your own pages. However, unless you already have prior knowledge of Spanish, I suspect that level 6 is insufficient for you to translate anything but the simplest of documents. If that is the case then keep to the lessons until you feel confident to take part in the Emersion programme.
