Finished my Spanish tree. Suggestions on what to do next?

I just finished my Spanish tree and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what to do next?! Any online videos/apps/resources that you would recommend? Thanks.

If you want to continue Spanish, GREAT! Try http://www.gospeaky.com/ if you want to speak with natives.

If you want to try a new language, try Portuguese. It is about 85% Spanish and most users can pick it up well after finishing the Spanish tree.

I wish you the best!

On Duolingo:

1) Keep your Spanish Tree golden. 2) Start working on immersion. 3) You can work on the reverse tree (Spanish to English) 4) You can work on your other languages from Spanish if possible.

I do 1, 2, and 4.

Outside of Duolingo:

1) Read in Spanish 2) Listen to music in Spanish 3) Watch videos in Spanish with Spanish subtitles. 4) Find someone to practice speaking in Spanish.

Yes! #1 is pretty much a daily activity and it seems like new words are added sometimes, which is good for continuing to grow your vocabulary.

I also do #4 and it is really intense!

For me German. The romance languages can be too similar. I have found that Spanish and German share some things that English does not have so they reinforce each other but it's different enough that you don't confuse vocabulary.

Thanks, that decides it. Next will be German from Spanish, and French from English.

I actually found a local Spanish speaking group that meets for lunch once a week where I live. It has been great to practice!

There is a Spanish group near me but I'm not confident enough to go to it as a lot of them seem to be native speakers. I am meeting up with someone so I can practise my Spanish and he can practise his English!

Yeah, if mine were mostly native speakers I would be way too intimidated to go! We are all beginners and it is great. :-)

If you go to school, or have any friends you know who speak Spanish at a fluent pace, practice speaking to them! No matter who they are, they will help with pronunciation, grammar mistakes/corrections, and lots more.

Even practice with that cute Latin american chick you have been eyeballing for years. ;D
