Will there be extra lessons for Spanish as well?

¡Hola!

Sorry if this has been asked before (didn't see another topic about it, though). I recently noticed that French and German had a lot of their lessons expanded. Are there extra lessons coming up for Spanish as well?

Could certainly do a lot of good. The later part of the tree feels very rushed and goes through some very advanced concepts in very few lessons.

Wouldn`t that be nice? Hope so!

We definitely need more lessons. Let's just hope the Duolingo team hears us.

I thought that the moderators were open to direct feedback. Why don't you ask them, and see what they say?

I started the reverse tree, and stumbled on new concepts right in the third-fourth lessons. Apparently, you can combine even more words into one verb for a short sentence - a lesson on that I'd like on an english-spanish tree. Por ejemplo, eh?

Can you give an example of this concept.

Like "dímelo" (tell it to me): di+me+lo.

"Dímelo" deals with direct and indirect objects. The direct object in this sentence is it or lo and comes after the indirect object which is me or me. "Tell it to me" is a comand making the object pronouns come after and attatched to the verb. I don't know if you were confused by this sentence but hopefully this helps others

Yes, I knew that. I was providing it as an example of what Java_91 mentioned, where a verb is combined with more words (object pronouns) to make a one-word short sentence. :)

well I notice this a lot in Spanish music as well. two or three words are mixed into one word.

I'd love too, but I don't remember =) I'll write it down next time I see it.

I've been wondering why Duolingo never offers these types of translations. It will accept them as correct but doesn't offer them as correct translations.

New lessons and a tree that fades out faster would be nice. I repeated the same sentences over and over so much and so often between levels 1-18 that my tree stays completely golden even when I decide to stay on level 19 for a month. I'll continue working on other sites and in books until my tree fades a little or some new lessons appear.

Yeah, I have the same problem: I've memorized most of the sentences in the Spanish tree. It also makes me look for other alternative ways of learning languages.

I was using Memrise last week. I started on Wednesday and my goal was to have the #1 number of points for the week. The #1 person already had around 1.5 million when I started. I was studying almost non-stop when I wasn't at work or sleeping and finished #1 for the week with over 2 million points. I learned so much, but I've been looking around at other websites today to find something like Duolingo. I like doing exercises in full sentences, and that's hard to find. I bought six or seven of the Practice Makes Perfect books and have been doing those. Also, I've been reading an online Argentine newspaper. I think Duolingo is by far the best site for someone starting out, and I have learned so much on here. But although repetition is critically important, so is new material.. There's not enough vocabulary either, but Memrise helped out on that. I just really need to do new material on constructing sentences.

"I was studying almost non-stop when I wasn't at work or sleeping"

Awesome! I've been using busuu.com on the side as well, mostly because they already have Japanese there. It's a good site, but you have to pay a fee for the extra lessons and the speech-to-text voice is very monotonous, really gets on your nerves after a while.

I know what you mean. There are defiantly concepts missing. Lucky for me, I am taking spanish in school and am just using duolingo as a practice tool. For me, duolingo and class fill in the gaps for each other.

Has German been expanded as well? I'm not seeing it so it may be another A/B test.

From what I hear, only half of the users have been given these new lessons, as part of a test.
