It depends on how much time you have to spend. Anywhere from 60 days to 2 years. If you really want to learn Spanish, I'd say minimum six months to allow time for things to sink in, and to review whenever skills decay. Also, doing a skill a day can be overwhelming, especially with the later skills, so two to three lessons is more reasonable.

Learning English took me five months, and learning my own language I am sure that takes more time. I know because I am doing it now. I am busy and I can't practice every day. But, if you can, in six months you finish it or less. Good luck and happy lunar new year!

Happy new lunar year too! The hard part of Spanish is verbs (conjugations, and use of tense and mood), they will determine your speed. That, in turn, depends on how much experience you already have with other IE languages (ideally romance languages). Good news: the rest is pretty easy and consistent!

I spent about an hour a day, and it took me eighteen months.

A warning: Do not underestimate the last third of the tree. ^_^

I took about 10 months to finish my Spanish tree. At first, I did several lessons per day since it was basically refreshing my high school Spanish course from long ago, but soon I slowed to one new lesson per day, plus 7 or 8 review lessons. Take it at your own speed, and be flexible with your goal, since some days and their lesson(s) are easier or more difficult than others. Make sure you understand something fairly well before moving on to the next topic. You may need to supplement your Duolingo lessons with other online resources, many of which are free, to make the best progress. Good luck!

Spending roughly 2 hours a day on Duolingo, it took me 60 days to complete the tree. If you complete one new skill a day, you should reach your target in roughly this amount of time.

This is a common question that you will find many response to if you check some of the other discussions, as it is a happy moment to let others know when we finish the tree. As others have pointed out, it is a matter of time, effort, familiarity with the language, and one thing you may not think of right off--how well you type. I suggest you try to really learn the language, complete with accents and punctuation, ¡! ¿? ñ é ü, even though Duolingo will give you credit whether you use them or not. To facilitate this you need to adjust your keyboard through your "control panel" so that you can transition back and forth easily between Spanish and English.

I've tried to do the minimum of 30 points per day, and have been doing so for ABOUT 4 1/2 months. One lapse in the streak. Some days I'm more committed and complete 5-6 lessons, but always the minimum. I'm through the tree, but only at 62% (the percentages move very slowly as you approach the end of the tree) but am still learning a LOT.

Good luck.
