Learning your Spanish tree all over again
Today I found out that a lot of my tree has been redone and needs to be re-learned. Although I am sure the extra material will help me speak better Spanish it is a bitter disappointment to find that I have to re-learn everything. I'm not here to complain, in fact the opposite. One can almost always find a blessing in something that is unfortunate. I'm excited that Duolingo is getting better and I look forward to the future of languages!
It is a reward of learning languages when you have changed the way your synapses fire to the point of THINKING in the new language.
The words and phrases in the early Spanish lessons are common words and expressions that you would use over and over again in daily life, just as English speakers use "hi" and "bye" and "sorry" and, it is to be hoped, "please". We don't NOT use those words because they are familiar or too easily remembered; we use them all the time because they are extremely useful. I am enjoying the new Spanish tree and hope DuoLingo is able to continue the good work with German, Italian, and French. Thank you, DuoLingo.
