I've been using Memrise and Duolingo to dabble with leaning Spanish to see if I really do want to pursue the language and so far I've been really enjoying it.
Since I've been studying French, a lot of the words are similar and I'm familiar with the concept of the conjugations so it's actually been a breeze! I'm still only at the beginner stages so my opinion could change when I start grappling with more complex grammar!
Anyway, I've been learning Spanish from English via Memrise, and Spanish from French on Duolingo (so that I can also solidify my French).
Now that I know that I definitely do want to learn Spanish, I'm going to invest in some textbooks to learn Spanish from French. I know of the Assimil books but I need to have a look around to see what's out there before parting with my cash!
Got back on track yesterday. I used to have a nice streak on Duolingo, but got off the track. Now I'm back at it. But more then that, I started to relect on my passion and motivations. Why did I want to learn Spanish in the first place? ... Actualy, there's no clear answer to that - yet. I'm still thinking about it.
To make this more of a smart goal, I am going to say get all skills on duolingo tree (current expansion) to level 3.
i.e. max out the Duolingo tree
37% proficient on Duolingo and practising everyday
free if you know friend or some one that knows it
Get to 90% proficeny on duolingo
Currently taking a module in uni
Very helpful in getting started, fun, and addictive
