Reverse tree for me
Having finished my french tree I have started the reverse tree, learning english from french. Since i didn't want to lose my french from english lessons i have adopted a new personna. I hope that this is ok. I have noticed that those learning english struggle as much as i did learning french. Continue your study! You will achieve your goal.
Reverse trees force you to learn the grammar of your target language, something the regular tree fails miserably at. If you tire of English/English translations just turn off the mic/speaker at the Settings page.
I'm doing the same thing. I've done a ton of French to English translation and am getting very comfortable with it, but I still struggle to string together sentences in French. Initially, I wished there was a way we could practice English to French without having to create a seperate account but now I'm seeing that there's a definate benefit to having mostly native French speakers here - I've been answering Discussion questions in French which is stretch my skills and I'm learning a lot of their correction of my immersion translations into more natural and more nuanced sentences than a textbook translation I'd give.
