Finished Spanish tree one day before leaving for the Dominican Republic

My journey with Duolingo has been going on for over a year now as I have been reconnecting to Spanish and learning some other languages along the way.

Here is my owl: (http://imgur.com/8P4dM1y)

I am travelling to the Dominican Republic tomorrow for my spring break in order to volunteer in a rural school helping children to learn English. I am so happy that I have come so far in my learning and I am excited to apply what I have learned here and elsewhere! It will be very rewarding to connect to another culture on such a deep level.

I have enjoyed this journey immensely and will certainly keep up with my Spanish as well as continue to pursue other languages as well. It has been a great journey so far and I look forward to many more years with Duolingo!

Hello! The trip was amazing!! Although knowing Spanish was not a requirement (as we were meant to fully immerse the students in only English) it helped immensely especially if the kids were not behaving or did not understand something. It also helped me to talk to some people in the community. This trip made me realize both how far I've come as well as how far I have to go. It was truly amazing! The group I worked with is Outreach360 and they are such a fantastic organization. I recommend everyone checks them out.
