How long does it take to finish the DuoLingo program in Spanish?

I probably do around 100xp a day. What is the highest level too? Will DuoLingo teach all of the grammar rules?

DuoLingo teaches a lot of the grammar rules, a person could theoretically test into third semester Spanish with DuoLingo (though they'd have less vocabulary.)

The highest level is 25.

The XP don't necessarily determine how fast you'll move through a course. If you do a lot of immersion, strengthening skills and timed practices (which I highly recommend) you will receive a lot of XP but won't necessarily be finishing new lessons or modules.

You can guess how long it'll take you by setting goals for completing a new skill. If you're trying to learn a new skill each day, and you have 80 skills to learn, then it's going to take you 80 days to complete the tree. If you complete 3-5 skills per day you're going to complete the tree much faster.

Do I understand correctly that there are 80 skills all together?

Skills and lessons are two different things. Skill are the main unit, Lessons are the units inside of skills.

I have no idea, it was just a random number as an example, since different courses have different amounts of skills. I think it is somewhere around there, though. Oh, wait, let me see if the trophy mentions it.

Hm, including the bonus skills I think it's 67? Anyway, I don't necessarily recommend burning through a skill a day - some of them are ten lessons long. I tend to burn through DuoLingo skills so I can apply them to speaking with people, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it as a standard :P I have native speakers to build my skills with, so I build a base fast and try to expand in the real world.

The highest level is 25. It takes 30,000XP to get there. People usually finish the tree before reaching level 25 though. It takes either a ton of review to reach that level or working in Immersion.

Each lesson is worth 10XP. So if you counted the number of Lessons in your tree and multiplied those by 10, then divided it by 100, you'd know how many days if you don't do any review. (But, review is often a good idea.) I am terrible with number though, so it's not a task I can take on.

I finished my own tree in around 90 some odd days.

Buena suerte con sus estudios! :)

Using the dashboard, I discovered that's there's no uniform answer to the question, "How many lessons are in _ language." For example, there are 638 lessons in Portuguese, 357 in French, 411 in Italian, and 306 in Irish. (I can't see Spanish because I was finished with it before the dashboard was introduced). It took me 48 days to reach level 25 in Spanish and 94 days to reach level 25 in Portuguese (and now I know why! 638 lessons??!??)

You can also learn more grammar rules at the bottom of the lesson, and the highest level you can go to is 25.
