More translating exercises from english into language of choice please!!!

I think this is crucial to truly understand a language. I feel there are more exercises from (desired language) into English, but what I feel is essential is to be able to start thinking in the desired language of your choice.

In my case, I feel somewhat confident listening into conversations, or reading in french. But when it comes for me to speak, I freeze and I can't seem to engage.

I feel the way Duolingo is right now, is very helpful to understand, and translate, but not enough to really engage in another language. You can only truly learn, by starting to think in the desired language of your choice and making mistakes.

I would suggest a full round of exercises where you have to translate sentences from English into whatever language you are practicing.
