petesede Posted November 22, 2013 Report Share Posted November 22, 2013 I´ve used both of these sites and think duoloingo is better. My reason is mainly based on the way they test you. Spanishdict uses a system where you earn 10 points for a correct answer, but you lose possible points very quickly based on the time it takes you to answer. My typing is pretty good, and I even have a few of the special spanish characters memorize for typing. But when taking the tests, I always feel like it is a speed typing exercise more than a spanish lesson, especially since spelling errors result in a wrong answer. There are times when I know the answer right away, but still earn 7 of 10 points based solely on having to correct a typing mistake before I submit my answer.duolingo doesn´t time your answer, and also gives partial credit if you closely mispell a word. With this site, I definitely feel like I am being tested on my spanish, not my typing speed.Duolingo is also more streamlined.. which is good and bad. Spanishdict has videos of an actress practicing a bunch of stuff, then you move to the drills and testing. Duoling, you go straight to the drills and testing and there isn´t a lot of fluff. It depends on your own personal scheduling, but I would prefer to just get to the meat of it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
