New to Duo!

Hey all! I'm new to duolingo, and was wondering if you've got any advice for me. I'm currently learning French, waiting impatiently for Klingon and Hebrew. I'm a budding author and Sherlockian with a big heart.

Feel free to pop me a comment below. I'm always looking for new teammates!

Thanks, Renee

It all really comes down to preference and what works best for you. Try to stay persistent, take notes and use other websites and sources along with Duolingo to help. but don't rush through your trees. Just take your time with them and let the new vocab and grammar sink in. That's what I have to do lol. Good Luck!

Bonjour! Welcome to Duolingo :) My advice for you is to not rush it; make sure you really understand the material before you move on and review your finished skills often, try to keep your whole tree gold. It becomes harder to do once you get further down the tree, but refreshing the skills will help you remember things you've already learned. Also, I'd advise against learning two similar languages at the same time. I tried this last year (learned both Spanish and Portuguese) and it really screwed me up. Here are some Lingots to get you started and I hope you enjoy using Duolingo!! :D

Review a lot. Not just new words and language. You need to review to practice, and let your mind get used to those words. Like what others have said, use other resources, too. Find videos of your target language on YouTube to practice listening. Read articles online in your target language (once you're at a high enough level).

And I'll follow you, too!

Try to learn the language you are learning. Don't stress if you mess up. Even native speakers of any language can get tongue tied and mess up. Just try your best. Practice makes perfect. If you don't practice you can lose the skill to speak the language. And most importantly have fun!
