Reached Level 25 in French - Finally!
I FINALLY MADE IT!
YAAAAASSS! Uh, no offence to you guys, but... I'm amazing. :P
Congrats! And I really like your clips! (But I'm wondering why there is a 24 by your French icon and not a 25. If it's a glitch in the system, I would want it fixed! I know how much work goes into this. Also, it's pretty nice to be acknowledged by this community, as friends and family don't quite understand!)
Ikr?? Also, yes, it is a glitch. :( Just go to my profile page and it will show the real level.
Thank you very much! Wow, that feels very gratifying; to be congratulated. Really, thanks. :) Also, I love your picture; are you a Star Wars fan?
Your welcome! :) Thanks! YES! Are you? unashamed Star Wars fan over here :D
Of course! How can one NOT be a fan of Star Wars? Even if it's a little bit cheesy, the movies are extremely fun to watch. You can't say that movies and 4, 5, 6 and 7 were bad. They weren't.
They really weren't! I loved 'em. Although, 1, 2, and 3 were bad acting. (I still loved the actors though :P ) I think it was all on Lucas. :P
Yeah. I'm sure the actors/actresses did their best. Ohh! Sorry to turn your awesome discussion into Star Wars :P
Totally agree with you! I don't think it was the actors/actresses' fault. I read somewhere that the dialogue and action were hard for them to work with.
Putting up five million streamers in my room and blasting the music up to the highest volume while eat cupcakes with the French flag on them. But other than that, no, not really. :P
How confident are you now, when it comes to writing, talking and reading in French?
COMPLETELY confident. I feel that I can easily carry a conversation with a native. I've been practicing speaking faster and faster French and now I'm pretty sure I can understand a native! Very excited, my mother is planning a trip for me to visit France this summer!
Thank you sooo much! I'll see if I can keep my streak in France with my laptop. :)
Oh wow that's fantastic, great to hear that. It seems like Duolingo is pretty effective. I'll be working hard on notching up my levels.
I got almost I hundred from here...but I knew she wouldn't let me return them. Lol
Google 'Duolingo Level 25 Hall of Fame' and join a most exclusive club. The statistics are there. Also 'Duolingo Golden Owl Hall of Fame'.
Just a suggestion - try the reverse tree - English from French. Will provide a slightly different perspective on the language and you'll probably get the owl in a couple of weeks.
Congrats on reaching 25. I was pretty thrilled to reach 25 myself, wish I had thought of doing this. Also weren't those early Starwars meant for kids, thus explaining the acting style??
I'm pretty sure that it was meant for all ages, but I think the directer/creator didn't do a great job with the script :P
Well done! I've thought about carrying on to level 25, but really I'm going to do whatever route is best to reach CEFR grade C1 or C2.
Congratulations! You must be so excited at the thought of visiting France... :)
for this i am giving you 18 lingots ( sorry thats only how much i have currently)
Please don't, they should go to you! You need them to get French skills so you can learn more! Here, take them back.
One, two months maybe? I had my native French grandmother helping me, though.
Congratulations Erica!!! I am so happy for you, I can't wait to that level as well. Wishing all the best
Absoluement formidable, Erica! C'est la travaille superbe! Je vous envie le voyage à venir. Toute mes félicitations et mes mielleurs voeux pour une très belle experience en France! C'est avec plaisir que je continuera de vous suivre - un jour, au vingt-cinquième niveau aussi. (Et j'adore les extraits de vidéo aussi! Quelle rigolote!)
Merci, mais c'est bien moi qui a un superabondance des années! J'ai connu que les règles d'usage de tutoiement ont changé, mais pas que "vous" implique une certaine age! Probablement mon usage est démodé, mais c'était simplement que je ne voudrais pas supposer plus de familiarité qu'elle trouverait confortable. Politesse obsolète, apparement, mais par estime. On n'est jamais trop jeune d'être respecté. :)
Eh bien! Tu (si je peux ;) me fait me souvenir de quelquechose comme ça, appris il y a longtemps et oublié plus tard. L'erreur doit être la mienne, bien que ce soit difficile d'avoir des regrets. Le coeur a parlé plus lucidement que le cerveau - un sentiment presque français si je ne me trompe pas. :)
Amazing giiiiiirl!!! :))) How did you get there? I am three lessons away from finishing the tree and i am only on level 13 :S ! x
So cool, congratulations and I wish you good luck with French, keep working hard! I really love the sound of French language, after learning German it will be my next goal, for sure! ;)
You should give French a try - it's amazing! Thank you for commenting! :)
I am getting into it big time as of today. Not sure what finally clicked, but before I was just getting tripped up on how hard it was, after watching a TEDxTalks video with the "language hacker" and deciding I really want to immerse in it and deciding I WILL master it, I'm just enjoying it so much that today I destroyed a ton of lessons in the duolingo app on my phone then I had French words flying through my mind as I tried to sleep so I got up and got on the computer and started doing stuff here on the site and realized that there's a full-fledged version of what I had on my phone on the computer (and then some!!!) I'm really loving getting into it.
Hey, don't say that. I thought it was hard, too, but I persevered. And now I'm at level 25. Even if it is hard, just try your best and you'll get to the top. I know this sounds like a cat poster, but it's true.
Congratulations Eric!!! So happy for you, can't wait to achieve that too
