I finished my French tree!

October 18th to January 18th, 94 days!

Edit: Also, what about reverse tree? Anyone think that it is useful? Should I use it, or should I learn some listening skills because mine is very, very bad. :(

I tried the reverse tree, I just got tired of it because I had to switch interfaces and all that. I felt like for the work it took, I was better off trying to get more comprehension practice in. But to each their own.

My recommendation would be to keep up with the spaced repetition provided by Duo, then really focus on building those skills that consistently give you trouble (for example with me, the subjunctive).

D'accord. Merci pour votre suggestion !

Congrats. I am almost done with my tree. I don't see why you wouldn't want to continue to brush up on your skills to further cement them in you brain. I would also suggest that you listen to rfi.fr (french radio) to get you accustomed to natural french conversation. After a few months of daily listening you will begin to see your comprehension skills improve.

Now if you can give me some advice on where to brush up on some conversation skills, I will be in your eternal debt.

Bonne chance!

I love to listen to rfi.fr. It even has a studying channel. :)

I can't really help with conversation skills, but what I did is think in French. It's good :)

Bravo! I think anything you need more help with for now is something you should do before anything else, of course, you can do other things like reverse tree, but maybe wait and finish listening skills! ~<3

Congratulations. I can't comment on whether the reverse tree is useful or recommend how to improve listening because I haven't gotten there yet but I do have a plan.

I'm going to work on listening and pronunciation using the methods that Idahosa Ness recommends (and I may buy his french course): http://www.mimicmethod.com/

Also, I'm going to give a private teacher a try through italki.

I'm 80% done with the french tree now. I debating whether to push through and finish the french tree before starting in with italki or not. I'm leaning toward starting with the italki lessons now and finishing the tree in conjunction with the private lessons...

January 19, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/heschmat

congratulations, :-) I haven't tried (FR => EN), but I'm learning French from German, this helps both. Perhaps, now that you are learning German, you can try learning German as a French speaker. Just a suggestion. :-)
Also practicing conversation is good. Reading interviews - because daily conversational words are used in them - also is a good practice.

keep up the great work :-)

Merci ! Thanks for the suggestion! I will definitely try that idea.

Félicitations! + The reverse tree is very useful imo it fills in some gaps that the original (EN -> FR) course didn't have. It really helps, especially if you want to know how to construct simple French sentences using proper grammar.
