Spanish stories are getting more and more interesting

I used to read the stories just for points; now, i see that they are getting more interesting, romantic, and comedic. It is also getting more complicated so I am learning more spanish vocabularies. The audio portions also making me "hear" more of the accents. If you haven't tried it yet, go for it.

The stories are one of the best parts of Duolingo's Spanish offering. Even when I am unmotivated to do lessons, I usually do a story!

I like the stories, too. They provide a nice break from the lessons, and teach some good vocabulary. I've actually had several Duo lessons where I found I already knew all the 'new' vocabulary because I had learned it from the stories. I also like going back and repeating a story from earlier levels. I'll find that one that was really tough the first time is now much easier because I've learned more in the interim.

So finally you realized you can get something useful from them, that's great :) Like others said, it's a nice thing to do a mix of lessons and stories.

Sadly they removed the tiny card links, however it was a nice idea to put some easier stories at the beginning. In the past they were pretty hard for beginners (I guess...).

I like doing them all, although they are different (to me): Some of them introduce vocabulary I'm really interested in, others are nice and funny but I'm sure I'll forget about a few words quickly.. Anyways, there's something for everyone :)

¿Por qué no están escribiendo sus comentarios en español?

Porque no estamos todos entiendo español muy bien. Buena pregunta.

Creo que es porque no todos aquí hablan bien el español. Eso no me aplica a mi, debido a que el español es mi primer idioma.

We aren't writing in Spanish because we are all at different levels in the learning process.

Even though I understood what you wrote, I'm not currently fully able to respond in Spanish as well as I can in English.

Yes, this is the Spanish forum, however, it's more about the language learning process, not about us writing in Spanish.

You're learning English I see, so hopefully you understand most of what I shared.

I agree, stories are fun and well-acted for the beginners in Spanish, in my opinion. Accents are better to hear and learn in the stories, justlike you said - because of how life-like they are. Also, I am not sure if it is new or new just for me, but you can try new bonus skills - right now, I found only two, 'Flirting' and 'Idioms and proverbs'. It is always nice to have a change in practice and still be able to learn some new lines. Idioms especcially :) Athough, idioms are just translated into English idioms so we cannot be sure of single words meaning. I need to know more about idioms etymology and might be looking for it, to understand it fully (or just some more).

I legit find them funny and I normally like dry, British comedy. Some of them are so off the wall and silly but they crack me up. I tend to get such a high xp because I review three or four stories a day.

I agree with you but... I have finished the stories...

Yes, I started reading/listening to the stories due to a suggestion by another Duo member. I'm at the end of the first set and it's helped to improve my vocab so far. The stories are also kind of humorous.

I love the way DuoLingo does stories, but they're too easy for me. I'd like to move up to more complex stories, but the app won't let me, even though I am very advanced in Spanish.

I think you need to complete more stories, maybe.
