so im studying spanish with just duolingo right now but im wondering if theres anything else kinda simple i could add to duolingo to help further my learning
just small things though like...well i already changed my phone and my Wii to spanish and im planning on getting a harry potter book in spanish
im not opposed to making lists of things that are a little harder for me like when to use usted instead of tu and whatnot
does anyone else out there use things other than duolingo to help supplement their studies?
Supplementing Duo is a great idea. However, it might be a little early for you to jump into reading such a big book if you're still struggling with things like tú vs. usted. There's no shame in reading picture books and then working your way up. I remember when I was learning Spanish, I tried to read a book way earlier than I should have and it really discouraged me because I thought I would be able to understand a lot more than I did. Still, those little things like changing your phone and Wii are great starts :)
Check out the unofficial Duo Wiki It has suggestions for language learning in general and then language specific sections.
Try out the Extr@ series on YouTube. There are several copies out there but this playlist has closed captions which is pretty handy if you have trouble understanding spoken Spanish. It's a 13 show series designed for intermediate level Spanish students.
