after 101 days I have finished my Spanish tree
Today I have finished my Spanish tree! It took me 101 days! I live since August in Spain, but I practice more with Duolingo than with the Catalans here. But when I have to use my Spanish, the people understand me.
In Budapest I made two Spanish courses, and I reached the level B1. In August, as I arrived in Barcelona I was checking my Spanish level with the test of Cervantes Institute. http://ave.cervantes.es/prueba_nivel/default.htm
The result of the test was B1, but I can tell you, that this knowledge was quite passive.
Some days ago I made the test again, and I am between B1-B2. So the improvement is not very serious, but I feel myself more sure with the language. I consider, that Duolingo is focusing on the everyday communication. That is fine, but not enough.
For those, who are somewhere on the tree: Don't give up! For those, who have finished already: See you at the article- translations!
A few days ago mkalbert finished his tree and in a post he said he would be willing to pay a small amount for an advanced course from duolingo. I agreed with him because I like the duolingo system. ¿Y tú? Quizas necesitamos empezar una petición.
Paying to learn a language goes against the founding principles of the site. Education should not be reserved only for those who can afford it. The site makes its money through article translations.
Good idea! I am also interested in helping to develop a Hungarian version.
Good for you! I'm still a beginner in Spanish, but it's always nice to see people improve and finish.
Wonderful!, that is something to really be proud of! But don't stop with just your Spanish skills, there is still more out there to learn!
Hey congratulations. Lucky you! Try to get out and practice with people as much as possible.
And thanks for the link. I've done the test and it told me I'm able to achieve C1.1 - C1.2. :)
Según esta prueba, usted puede realizar los niveles C1.1 - C1.2
del AVE. Consulte con su centro para que le sitúen en el curso
Congratulations! You've done well!!! Barca is the most wonderful city everrrrr!!!!
Felicitaciones Junius! Que suerte que vives en Espana. Estoy en la misma situación, nivel B1 - B2 y terminé mi árbol en 90 días. Esto necesitaba 70 - 80 puntos todo los días (insane) y dos semanas despues siempre hago approximadamente 30 puntos per día para mantener el árbol en oro. Con Duolingo yo he mejorado mi oído y hablo más rápido :-)
Congratulations! It's so great that you're feeling more comfortable speaking Spanish. :)
