The word "otoño", meaning autumn or fall, is not covered in the Spanish course. All the other seasons are covered in the course, so why not this one?

Yeah, thankfully I'm also learning Spanish in school, otherwise I would be screwed if I were to go to Mexico "durante el otoño."

Good question. I don't think I remember coming across that one either.

I don't think I remember them covering south either. East and west were. I think north as well.

I have seen south and north. But never east.

I definitely saw East! I remember because it sounded just like "this" (este)

I noticed the same thing some months ago when I started the English from Spanish tree, because it is there. You expect to find some new vocabulary there, but a season? That really caught me by surprise. And now I'm a little surprised it's still not there!

Wait, it's in the English from Spanish? I just looked in my Palabras tab and I don't see "fall" or "autumn". I just finished Negocios and am on Modal Verbs.

Try going back up to Fechas, then Leccion 6. Look at the preview word list. It might take a few runs though the lesson to actually get the word, what with the recent changes.

So it is! And now that I practiced it, the word is showing up in my Palabras tab.
