Yay! I finished my Spanish tree! I had two skills left today. After I got about halfway through Abstract Objects 3, I started thinking "I know a lot of vocabulary, I'll just test out"... so I did that, and finished Conditional Perfect, and got my golden owl!

I signed up for this class: https://www.miriadax.net/web/espanol-salamanca-a2-3ed that starts on May 5th... it's an advanced Spanish class. Then I think that I'll just concentrate on reading Los Juegos del Hambre and keeping my tree gold, as far as Spanish is concerned. I'll be able to spend more time with German and start advancing in French.

I started Spanish a long time ago, back in college. After three semesters, I was no way near fluent.

For years, I didn't use Spanish at all. Then, my husband and I were going on a cruise. It was going to stop in Mexico for a day. I figured that it was a good excuse to relearn Spanish. So I started Rosetta Stone. Eventually, I finished all 5 levels.

After that, I read the Divergente trilogy. I also got a subscription to National Geographic en Español, and when I found a word that I didn't know, I put it into Anki. After all of that, I knew a lot of vocabulary, but I was lacking when it came to grammar.

I was going through the FSI exercises to learn grammar (it's pretty boring) until I found Duolingo. It's much more fun!

Duolingo is now my favorite language tool. :-)

Congratulations! I guess we've just finished our trees at the same time! I started Duolingo in February 2013, I had a long break, but now I'm done! Yeah!

Perdona pero suena muy mal lo que has puesto. Me imagino que quieres decir: "He terminado mi árbol" Un saludo.

¡Felicidades, Brooke! I liked reading a little bit about your previous experiences with Spanish, and what you will be working on next. Keep going! If you have the time, check out the reverse Spanish tree. I found it to be much more challenging! I love the fact that you have a subscription to National Geographic en español. What a great way to learn the language!

I just started the Spanish->German tree. I like the idea of laddering languages.

In the Eng->German course, I tested out of about half of the tree, but I started with Basics 1 for this one, since it's more of a challenge.

Should be quite an amazing feeling to complete a whole series in a new language. I look forward to the day when I can proudly say the same. Congratulations!
