I have managed to finish the Spanish tree in 38 days. On average, I was spending about two and half hours on Duolingo each day. It is incredible how much one can progress in such a short period of time by using this application ! After having finished the tree, I will just try to keep it golden. I will use the remaining lot of time to do immersion (still very difficult though), watch some TV shows dubbed in Spanish and read online articles. I also want to start doing verb conjugation drills, any reccomendation for the website/app which makes that less of a challenge ?

This is a fantastic community, I think I am hooked !

¬°Felicitaciones! Very fast! Don't be afraid to jump into Immersion at all. :) There are plenty of verb drills here.

For Immersion, there are two main Spanish translation groups:

The Sobremesa Coterie

  • Focuses on more idiomatic language (short stories and essays)
  • Serious in translations, more light-hearted with each other
  • Up to 3 articles active at a time

Mar Plateado

  • Focuses on articles, either from other sites or Wikipedia
  • Serious in translations, willing to discuss differences
  • 5+ articles active at any one time, in different stages.

If you need more information, just drop by my stream (I am a member of both).

So, congratulations on the completion of your tree, and here's to the rest of your journey! If you want, I can put your name in the Hall of Fame. :)

Thank you for your reply, I find it very helpful! Hall of Fame, why not, I plan of finishing a few more trees anyway. :) May I ask what do you mean by translation group? I am not familiar with those - until a few days ago I was using Duolingo exclusively from my phone, so all of these options are rather new to me.

Happy to help! :) Translation groups upload articles in Immersion, and support each other as they translate the article. :) Both groups are made of about 6-10 people currently. They upvote each other, discuss the language/grammar used, and offer constructive criticism. It's a good environment for those who'd try to avoid downvotes as often as possible in the lower tiers. :)

You may find some of the Spanish courses in memrise.com helpful, as a continuation (it's just a suggestion, I haven't done them)

I recommend the reverse tree. It has a lot more practice using object pronouns and imperative and subjunctive moods than the first tree. Also I am learning some additional vocabulary.

I've found a lot of good information on this guy's website --> http://www.mezzoguild.com/ It's not Spanish specific, but he has a lot of good tips about how to become naturally fluent and to really incorporate and solidify the language in your mind. He recommends lots of other great resources too!
