Like many before me I finished my tree

I have always wanted to learn a language and never found it easy. And it was not easy even with Duolingo, but I feel that I've made a great start and can now read a little bit. Next I have to convince my wife to line up a return trip to Spain and get some real world practice.

Congratulations! It's a good feeling being able to read, even if it's just a little.

Just tell your wife the trip is a second honeymoon or something and you'll be a hero.

Thanks, she was raised in SoCal and speaks Spanish fluently. It won't really take any persuasion;-)

Congratulations man!! Duolingo helps us a lot!!! I have learned English and Spanish here because I have no money to pay for a language course. Now it's time to try to learn Ukrainian and others languages.

Congrats! I just finished my third tree yesterday too! I now have my Italian, French, and Spanish trees. Hopefully soon, I'll be adding Esperanto to that list!

I am impressed and envious.

I've also had classes in Greek, french and german way back in the dark ages of high school. I was not the best in the class. When I get comfortable with Spanish I hope to wind my way through Europe linguistically.
