Too easy... or too hard?

When I started learning, Spanish was fun. Now that I understand the grammar, it is only a matter of learning vocabulary, which is boring. Give me your suggestions so I don't have to quit.

te recomiendo que leas libros, artículos, blogs, etc. en español, y escribe aparte las palabras deconocidas y luego las consultas por internet o un diccionario, eso te ayudará. saludo y bediciones

If you're not the type who wants to memorize flash cards, remember you're not alone—many people have this problem. Think about how you learned your native language, AKA, the natural way. Reading books, having conversations, watching television. That's all there is to it. Surround yourself with the language and you will pick up vocabulary. Now, some words are harder, and you really should look them up in the dictionary (just like in your native language), but the great thing is that you don't have to if you don't want to!

We usually say "you're right" in English instead of the literal translation "you have reason". :)

I've got a similar issue, dynamic_puppy. For me, I've basically reached the end of what Duolingo can offer in Spanish, as far the lessons go. The next step is obviously to read books or watch tv/movies in Spanish, but here's the rub:

My vocabulary is at the level of a small child, but all of the content that I have a prayer of understanding (content with limited vocabulary) is boring to me. It's hard to find that sweet spot of content that's engaging, but that uses simple enough words where I don't have to pause every sentence and look up meanings. It'd be nice if there was more (free) content around like the @Extra series on Youtube.

(I know, not super helpful. Just thought I'd let you know that there's others in your position.)

I read/watch things that I've seen in English before. That way I don't lose the story when bits are too hard and I can pick it up on the next page or scene.

Youtube should have your favourite movies scenes in Spanish.

Lang-8 is a site where you write something in the language you're learning, and then native speakers correct it. You can try learning a little bit of vocabulary, and then being creative with it. Helping other people with your native language is also fun.
