Spanish tree

Hello everyone, I'm new on DL.

I finished first part (http://prntscr.com/j5mqxh). But before I finished Possesion, I was able to click on button which looked like this http://prntscr.com/j5mro9 where I could test my skills. Now as you can see, I'm not able to press that button.

Can you explain me what is that "test" and is there any way to take test from the first part ? Also if you can, give me some hints on how to go through tree.

Welcome to Duolingo! That test is to speed up your progress through the lessons if you have already studied the language somewhere else and already know what those lessons teach. I don't think it's possible for you to take that test anymore unless you create a new account.


Oh and here is a good way to go through the tree:

Someone suggested this to me and so far it's working well. I work in "tiers."

The top part of my tree is level 5 and shiny gold. A few rows down, though, are some skills at level 4, then the next row down is level 3, then 2, then 1, then newly unlocked skills that I haven't started, then all my locked skills.

I work on the level 4 skills and bring them to a level 5, then drop down and bring the level 3 to level 4, then the level 2 to level 3, level 1 to level 2, the newly unlocked skills to level 1, and this unlocks a new row of skills which I ignore.

I go back up to my level 4 and start working my way through all my active skills again.

In this way I have a good mix of new material in small quantities at an easy manageable level (the newly unlocked skills), more difficult and complex exercises of more familiar material in great heaping quantities (the level 4 working on 5), and a bunch of stuff in between for interest.



Thank you. I will try it :)
