Easiest lesson to achieve a perfect score?

Easiest lesson to achieve a perfect score?


Hi everybody! I was just wondering which lessons other people have gotten perfect scores in, so that those seeking the "Star Student" badge would know where to start.

I had been having trouble typing fast enough in the recall section of the flashcards, so I chose lesson 1.8 about numbers and time, because it was mostly short. For the long ones (e.g. "son las cuatro y cuarto") I typed them in another window, and then copied and pasted them.

Anyone else want to share their tips and success stories?

I'm here to learn Spanish, not to achieve a perfect score. Good luck to you! - Alicia-53, AGO 16, 2009

I did both the Learn Spanish and Learn English series. I found that I usually scored a little higher on the English lessons (surprisingly not much-which says something either about my Spanish or about my English, probably the latter).

So if you are only interested in going for a badge (and I hate that concept and one that I brought up before they implemented the reward system) then do the English lessons.

I've been complaining since my first lesson that they are more of a typing test than a test of your knowledge. Before it didn't matter before, because the points meant nothing beyond a gauge to measure your progress, but now they're trying to provide a reward which I disagree with.

One good benefit for me was that I used to use a desktop virtual keyboard where I could click on the Spanish symbols to type them. That took too long for the lessons so I was forced to learn how to install a keyboard capable of making the letters. A much better method, so the "typing tests" helped me.

I fully agree. I think the time you have to type before a point goes down should be based on the length of the word, eg. 1 second every 3 letters or something. I sent the suggestion, but I'm not expecting much. - randomraccoon, AGO 31, 2009

la sección 1.1 es el más fácil
