Anything I need to learn?
Is there anything I need to learn separately, or anything that would be helpful later on now I'm at this point? I'm up to clothing/questions in the Spanish tree and was just wondering, from other sites, etc. (Duolingo is great though)
Hi, this is the general "Duolingo" forum, and most people on Duolingo do not study Spanish. Could you please edit your original post and use the drop-down list at top left to change the topic from "Duolingo" to "Spanish"? That way it won't clutter up the general forum, and the answers you get might help others who are learning Spanish and browse through the forum looking for new info. Thanks!
Well, I'd say the fact that you are level 9 and only at the clothing/question part is pretty amazing, as I am level 6 and well past that part.
But I suppose that just means you practice A LOT.
I would say that there is always something you can do. You can listen to spanish music on youtube, or listen to people talking, watch movies in Spanish with subtitles (spanish subtitles, not english), listen to podcasts, use memrise or tinycards to drill vocabulary, etc. I still suggest using Duolingo to finish the spanish course
My advice is to get at least 2 thirds of the way through the course before doing anything outside of Duolingo. If you start trying to watch Spanish news too early you'll realise there's still a lot to learn and you'll most likely start getting stressed out and put off.
Duolingo is great because even though you have A LONG LONG LONG way to go it simplifies it down to you and trust me, by the time you finish the tree you'll then be amazed at how much you've learnt.
I'd then recommend start trying to find natives to practise with, start watching videos and start doing more advanced courses on Memrise.
Hope this helped! :D
