Resting on your laurels
I finished my French tree ages ago. But as I like to keep in practice, I often go back to revisit lessons. It never gets boring because most of the time, I find material that wasn't previously covered.
I am just starting and I love French. I do it in school too. How long did it take to finish completely?
It would be unfair of me to say without first mentioning that I began studying French in the 7th grade. Even so, it took me about a month to get through my tree. I spent another week going back in order to make the icons gold again. Some days I would rack up 900+ XP. But, as you say, I love it!
That is impressive. I only do one new lesson a day because I think I can only remember a few words at a time. I'm constantly going back to make my tree gold, which seems to wither rather quickly.
I worked really hard in high school to be a D student in French. Math was easy for me, but not French.
Perhaps I should try a 900 point day.
I think level 9 in 34 days is pretty good. I'm shooting to finish the tree in 2 months since I have no previous french experience.
Not that there is anything wrong with a 900 point day, but remember that daily practice will do you far more good than occasional marathons. Don't burn yourself out!
Always remember that in your new lessons you cover the new lesson plus everything you have already learned up to that point.
My advice would be not to worry about 'trying to remember' every new word before moving forward. A lot of the time what was really strange grammar that i had no idea could possibly make sense, soon revealed itself to be obvious once I just had a larger grasp on foundations of the language.
