I believe I could speak the language with a few grammar mistakes. Now that I'm finished I'm focused on solidifying the information I learned on here and taking that knowledge and using with native speakers which I do on Lang-8.com. A great site for writing paragraphs, short sentences, etc in your target language to be corrected by native speakers

I just created a Lang-8 account, it's addicting, and it made me feel great that I had less mistakes in my Italian than I expected to.

It took me about six months but I only did a few lessons every day (about 15 minutes) and took time out for moving and holidays etc. I'm sure if I'd done it steady it would have taken about six weeks instead. Everyone moves at their own pace depending on how much time you can dedicate to learning.

It depends on how much time you have on your hands. If you use it on your lunch break or on the train, metro, subway, whatever to work or if your summer is free and you have hours a day to do it. For my first thing, I would say six months to a year, but with my second one, as the incredibly talented E.T.s_Son did it on a month, so about a month or two for the second one. It also depends on how well you know the language.

Spanish didn't take me too long but I'd studied Spanish in high school and college (30 years ago, so forgotten most of it but it came back quickly).

I'm doing French now and it is much slower. I think it will take me about a year or even 18 months to finish the French tree. I do a lot of reviews though. It takes me a ton of repetition before something sinks in for the long term. Short term recall is good but long term.. a bit of a struggle for me. I do some every day. Some days I just get a few points, like if I have company or am super busy with something, but most days I try to get 50-100 points.
