I am a native spanish speaker and i'm willing to help!
Anybody who need to improve spanish skills can write me! I will be glad to help you! And also, I could get my english better if you speak it!
Hola JosGre1. Thanks for your offer to help in Spanish. If you need any help in English, please let me know. Muchas gracias. ¡Que tengas un buen día! ¡Saludos cordiales!
¡Hola sandeepa2! Gracias a ti por responder y por la ayuda que ofreces. I am available to have small talks and answer spanish questions, and I will definitely write you guys if I am not sure about something in english.
Now. For example: You are a good doctor! in spanish: "Tú ERES un buen doctor". also, you can say in a formal way: "USTED ES un buen doctor". Another example, but now using "They": They are my friends: Ellos SON mis amigos".
it depends on the noun you use. for example, if you say: you are, it is: "Tú estás / eres" or "Usted está / es". If you say: They are, it is: "Esllos están / son".
Hola! The Spanish course needs improvement! They expanded the French course recently, and I am hoping they will do the same for Spanish. I don't know if any efforts are under way, but if so, they will need volunteers.
Really? I thought they had it all covered. I was yesterday traying to get into the volunteers group, but one of the requirements was that I need a high level of english and I don't if my domain of english is that good, so I stoped filling the request.
Although, I remember that I clicked the "Test center" link at the bottom of this site, and the description sounded like I would be one of those guys that makes those certification test at the end of the tree. Can you tell me if there is any other option to become a volunteer to help specifically improving the courses?
Although the Spanish course is done and fairly good, it doesn't have as many vocabulary words as the French course. It would be nice if Duo added more words to Spanish. Some of the Spanish skills at the end of the course, such as imperative/subjunctive, could also be improved or at least better explained.
If you haven't already done the Spanish from English course (reverse course), you could try it. My guess is that as a bilingual you would be able to easily identify areas needing improvement.
Many people have questions about the specific translations in the discussion section for each question in the courses. In French from English, there is a moderator called sitesurf who gives excellent explanations, but I don't know that there is anyone in the Spanish from English course who does that consistently. Someone who is patient, respectful, and articulate would be very helpful.
I've also noticed some people posting detailed explanations of grammar in the general discussion. You might probably need to know the Spanish from English course well before doing that.
As far as the official volunteer options at the moment, I don't know what would be the best way to find out about them. Perhaps there might be a moderator who would know? It's possible that Duo is more focused on the test center at the moment because it plans to monetize (make money) on the tests.
