How many levels in Spanish?

I noticed that another user is in level 25 of spanish. I am in level 12 now with only one skill remaining in the tree. It appears that when I finish the tree, I will be at level 13. So, where do all those higher levels come from?

Levels don't actually provide a true picture of the progress made on the tree. It's just a measure of the amount of time spent gaining XPs either on new lessons or revising already completed ones. Or time spent in immersion, for that matter. I, for example, am a long way from completing the tree though I have a higher level. So, actually my knowledge of Spanish is much lesser than yours :)

You are so right! It really is important to use a variety of Spanish sources to build your knowledge. A spectrum of reading, writing, listening and speaking activities helps tie it all together. Now finding the time is another issue.

Practice and Immersion will both give more XP.

Level 25 is the highest level, but most finish the tree long before reaching level 25. Thereafter you may re-do the tree, keep skills golden, do immersion or just randomly practice.

Also it takes more and more points to reach the next level. Level 24 is 26k and 25 is 30k points and anything greater.

Higher levels can come from practicing a lot. I'm on level 16 and I'm still only half done with my tree. I don't feel comfortable moving forward unless I know the material very well, so I end up reviewing the lessons over and over.
