First, the crown system, now a whole lotta purple.

I, for one, am really enjoying the changes. If I hadn't reached a certain point in my studies, I might feel otherwise, but both the crown system and the extra Spanish purple seem very ZEN to me.

I've been enthusiastically language-ing for a couple years now, and I have reached a stage where I'm taking smaller bites, more frequently, and enjoying the sensation when the words (or sentences even) flow automatically, without thinking. Speaking German, French, Italian, Spanish, actually start to FEEL like speaking English in an accent.

For me, the crown system and the new Spanish tree support that kind of learning. Can't speak to the world, but it works for me.

I haven't gotten any changes to my tree yet, maybe they're still rolling out.

If I was a new user, I would think this is a much better tree. However, changing the tree after 60 days has really disrupted my learning. I tried to ignore the 50+ new skills that have been inserted in front of my old tree and tried to progress with the skills I had been working on (Present 2 especially). However, now my lessons assume I have learned the words and grammar in the 50 new skills.

I can't focus on trying to learn the actual skill I'm supposed to learn because so much new material is popping up but not being repeated enough to learn. For instance, I haven't learned how to use two verbs in a sentence but this is now everywhere.

They needed to give users the choice of when to switch or do a better job of integrating what you have actually learned vs the new skills they have inserted.
