You say that's not a big deal? I think you might be wrong. Completing the whole tree is a very big deal and very impressive. Congrats! Siga aprandiendo y buena suerte con tus estudios.

It would not get 1100 lingots if it was not a big deal...

Yeah, that’s a lot of lingots

Your stats are impressive. Never saw so many lingots on a Discussion not yet twenty minutes old...bet you break a thousand before day is out.

Edit: 5 hours later and up to 780. 220 to go...

I have also finished all the Spanish stories and thoroughly enjoyed them. I read quite a few of them twice since it's such a long time before new sets are added. It's a great experience when you go back to the earlier ones and notice how much easier it is to understand them than it was the first time you read them. I'm anxiously awaiting new ones. I've enjoyed the stories more than the podcasts, perhaps because they're more amusing.

May 14, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/Adriana456080

Where do you find the stories? Or is each level considered a story? I am taking Italian so maybe there is a difference in the languages

May 16, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/groolover

Sadly there are no stories in Italian yet - just Spanish, Portuguese, French and German (I think).

May 16, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/Adriana456080

No wonder I could not find them. Thank you so much

May 16, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/groolover

I really hope they add them to Italian (and Russian) soon - they're really good! Entertaining AND useful!

    Honestly, that is a big deal!

    How much Spanish did you actually learn after completing all the stories?

    May 13, 2019

    https://www.duolingo.com/rustywolfefrank

    Not the OP but I'm only through like 5 of the 17 sections and I LOVE them for their vocabulary building. Usually hear about three new words per story and I add them to my Anki deck to study :)

      May 14, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/groolover

      Well done! I've been working my way through them all (as well as the French and German ones) for quite a while, but I came to a juddering halt tonight when I finished Set 14 (having done every story up until then) and found that everything after that is still locked! Can't understand why they'd make it visible if it can't be accessed. Did it let you do all 17 sets?

      May 14, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/MuchMyriad

      Take a look through what you've completed. I just had to do a story over again for it to become gilded and unlock the next set. Nothing in the story had changed, so I can't figure why it had returned to its former state.

      Perhaps you're experiencing a similar issue.

      May 14, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/893tQMne

      Yes, I had the same experience where a story I'd previously read was no longer gilded and the star removed. I simply re-read it and the star was returned. Some people have complained that some of the stories have been changed and made easier. I haven't noticed that.

      May 14, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/groolover

      I haven't lost any stars and I haven't noticed any stories being changed - but I have solved the problem! There's a story called "The day you left" and its picture is gold to start with, so I didn't notice that I hadn't done it because it looked the same as all the gilded ones! I've just done that story and now the next set is unlocked. (Also that story is ADORABLE! Possibly my favourite so far!)

      May 14, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/MuchMyriad

      I'm definitely glad to hear you've solved your issue!

      May 14, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/MuchMyriad

      A few days ago, there was also an instance where a story didn't receive its star after I finished it. When I immediately went back and redid it, it did have a lot fewer sentences than it had just a couple minutes prior, with those it contained also being much simpler than before.

      May 14, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/groolover

      It was all gilded... I redid the last one to see if I'd missed something, but it didn't work... but I've just solved the problem. There's a story called "The day you left" and its picture is gold to start with, so I didn't notice that I hadn't done it because it looked the same as all the gilded ones! I've just done that story and now the next set is unlocked. (Also that story is ADORABLE! Possibly my favourite so far!)

      They are not on my iPhone app but there is a Stories tab on the home page when I'm on my iMac. After doing a story, it may send you an email for the next story. Then, you can open it on your phone. Awkward!

      There are no stories for Italian yet - just Spanish, Portuguese, French and German. Hopefully they'll be added to other languages eventually.

        They are only available for french, spanish, german, if you have none of these selected it won't show, but otherwise it should be next to the "discuss" and "shop" tabs.
