Regular and reverse tree
Hola a todos! I am almost finished with my Spanish tree and wanted to start the reverse tree simultaneously. Have others done this? I was trying to add English (as a Spanish speaker) as another course, but don't know if I can double dip so to speak. Apreciaría yo cualquier consejo de lo mejor manera hacerlo.
I did the reverse for a while and didn't get excited about it, although I know tons of people do it. For me it's more fun to learn a new language from one I've already learned . Like Portuguese from Spanish.
The reverse tree will give you a better grasp of Spanish grammar than the regular tree.
You can do them both at the same time. I am doing it with French and English. You will not lose any of your progress. If XP matters to you, though, it's been my experience that when Duo thinks that I speak French, it doesn't add to my XP from my other account. Both remain separate. Does that make sense?
