A Little Disappointed in my Spanish Tree
I have really enjoyed learning spanish with DuoLingo, however I'm finding the last five parts of the tree impossible. There seems to be a quantum leap from the other parts to all of a sudden understanding tenses and modals and parts of speech I don't even understand in English (my native language). The learning seemed to be quite gradual to this point, and now I find I am just frustrated and about ready to quit. I keep going back to do the rest of the tree, test myself in timed tests, etc, but whenever I get to the last five it's like hitting a wall! Please give us some more intermediate steps!!!
You have discovered one of Duolingo's weaknesses--at least with Spanish. I can't reference the other languages. The only way I got through the last part of the tree was repetition. Those topics remain my weaknesses, too. The conditional and modal verbs are most difficult. Buena suerte.
Don't give up on this. I am in the same boat. I finished my tree a couple of weeks ago and I struggled with the same last three parts and barely got finished. I knew that I just pushed through them and didn't really know them well or if all. I got them gold and in not time they were changing colors. I have been so frustrated because I can't seem to remember them and spend a long time everyday on them getting them back to gold. All we can do is keep practicing and like someone mentioned go to studyspanish.com. as well as other sources.
Thanks everyone. I have been using Study Spanish, and I think it's a great partner to Duo Lingo but Modals has me whipped! I will try the other resources. As Dory says "just keep swimming, just keep swimming,.. swimming, swimming.... :-)

The way the subjects are displayed, stacked in kind of a triangular fashion, resembles a tree.
