French tree=COMPLETED :)
Finally I completed my french tree which took me 60 days...These are also my first 60 days at Duolingo, and I must say that I am really impressed with it and that there is no better and faster way to learn the language basics, grammar and the core vocabulary of a language all at the same time...when I look 2 months back I had only known Bonjour, déjà vu, enchanté, laissez-faire and some other words which I picked up from movies, news and media, and I was ful of prejudices about French (that it is hard to pronounce and the way how they spell and then pronunce their words, but now I think that it actually makes sense unlike in english where you can only guess how to pronounce a new word) but deep deep inside me I always wanted to learn and speak it. And now I can form whole sentences all by myself...Sometimes I like to annoy my parents and my flatmates by speaking to them in languages they don't understand, know I can do the same in French as well :D I just want to say Thank you Duolingo for giving us all this chance, my gratitude is immeasurable :) P.S. Is this sentence correct or shoud I use the subjunctive here: Il semble que notre petit déjeuner est à midi.
Congratulations! It seems like everyone is doing their trees so quickly now, mine took nine months!
Very well done!
Yes, a subjunctive would be most welcome: "il semble que notre petit déjeuner soit à midi".
Hey, I'm new to Duolingo, having been around for maybe a week. Would someone mind telling me what a "Tree" is?
In the simplest way I can put it, all the lessons, which make up your language course, combined form your language tree...so when you complete all those lessons you have completed your language tree :)
Félicitations à vous ! Qu'en est-il d'allemand ? Saviez-vous un peu d'allemand avant Duolingo ? Avez-vous fait les deux arbres en même temps ? Parlez-vous l'allemand mieux que le français ?
Je pense que vous avez beaucoup travaillé dans ces 60 jours. Je pense aussi que Duolingo est très bon pour apprendre à comprendre le langage écrit, mais pas tant d'être en mesure de réellement parler.
Duolingo vous donne une très bonne base pour apprendre rapidement à parler plus tard ( une fois que vous commencez à essayer ).
Meric beaucoup. Allemand est ma langue maternelle, ainsi mon allemand est très mieux que mon français :D J'apprends seulement une langue pour un temps, ma langue prochaine va être probablement la turque (je ne suis pas sûr si ça écrit dans cette façon) ou la russe, parce que je déjà parle une langue slavic, et je veux parler une autre langue dans cette categorie...Je vous souhaite bonne chance pour ton apprentissage d'allemand, vous en auriez besoin, j'ai trouvé le français plus facile en comparaison avec l'allemand, Il n'y a pas de declination dans français et j'en aime :) J'espére que je n'a pas beaucoup d'erreurs.
Hahaha, OK (I just thought you were studying French and German at the same time).
Yes, German is difficult to me (especially when I try to speak, I make a lot of errors :-) ). French is probably easier (and Italian more so, at least for me) but it may depend a lot on each person's native language.
By the way, what slavic language do you already speak?
I was tempted to start Russian or Polish here on Duolingo too, but I realized I am already studying too many new languages at the same time, and it requires a lot of free time (that I don't have right now :-( ), so I will postpone it to an indefinite future :-)
And how is Turquish? Do you like it?
My native languages are German and Bosnian, which is the same as Serbian, Croatian, and Montenegrin (sometimes we make jokes here that we are the country with the most polyglots in world since everyone here speaks and understands all these languages :D)...I would not recommend you to start learning a slavic language at this stage either, it is a whole new world compared to the languages you are learning already, you should rather stick to and keep improving the languages that you are already learning, and after that try your luck with a slavic one (I heard that ukrainian is the least complicated one, and the one that is most similar to old churchslavonic, much like the relation between Italian and Latin)...
As for Turkish, I used to learn turkish in the past since I had intentions to study there, but unfortunately it went wrong and after that I lost my motivation...but it kinda gains importance especially here in my country Bosnia... I found it kinda different compared to other languages I already speak, the verb comes last is something you have to get used to.
I think I will give it another try, all those differences between turkic languages in general and indo-european ones are tempting me, they are truly unique in their own way :)
