I completed the reverse tree referenced above some time ago, and have been working on keeping it gold. There has been a fairly major change just recently, which in my opinion is NOT for the better. The earlier lessons have much more of the feel of a phrasebook, and even some of the later lessons have been simplified. I also think there have been some skills removed, although I'm not sure since I've never counted them. I'm not sure that the 1st grade level lessons will keep adults engaged, although it may help with junior high kids who really aren't interested in learning. I will still recommend the site to my Spanish speaking ESL students, but I can't endorse it as strongly. Has any one else doing the reverse tree noticed the change? I SINCERELY hope that this isn't the wave of the future for other languages.

Yes I noticed the changes and quickly went through it. I honestly don't remember the details, so I don't have a particular feeling about them. It is good to know that improvements are still being made to the inglés>español and Spanish>English trees.

Keep in mind, you never know what will motivate or keep adults engage to learn a language.

I agree with the phrasebook reference. I am currently working on the reverse tree and felt it much like that. But, as it's a reverse tree for me, it's been more like a practice session where I use the knowledge gained in the Spanish course in real-world scenarios, which is not bad. Also, getting some new vocabulary as well.

If this was my primary tree, I may have had a concern (not sure yet as still early in the tree). I had enjoyed the way the Spanish course drilled in stuff, a little at a time, strengthening the fundamentals in the language.

I think they have added a few lessons to the first couple of leves of English from Spanish tree. I've gone and completed the tree again. I think the changes are pretty superficial.
