My French tree is done!
After 244 days I finally have finished my French tree with 9723 XP's, fluency 41% and at level 15.
Merci beaucoup Duo!
Thanks, I just made no break days and regalarly bought a double or nothing option from a store.
I joined a few minutes ago and I am at 8%. I definitely need a lot of word. Well done Romtex!!!
15 in on the low side for completion. You move along briskly through tree! I hit the Practice Weak Skills button so often that I'll have more than twice that many XP before i complete the tree.
Yes, you're right, that was the plan to finish the tree quickly to get a big enough vocabulary so I can actively use it. I like to use the language not just to study it.
I'm at 42% fluency and I'm only about halfway through my tree. How did you finish your tree?
Duo is my main mean of studying the language, but not the only one. I use other means too - watch French TV, films with subtitles, read newspapers and French segment of the internet, use the dictionary all the time.
And with a time you realize that you can understand the language, that is a pleasant feeling. After that you'll never stop adding new words and mastering the language ever.
You just raced towards the end, or did you keep every skill gold on the way down?
My first half of the tree was very slow because I couldn't get the verbs and all theirs forms/tenses (I'm still working on it).
Then as soon as I was able to understand simple sentences I've begun to try reading/listening to French where it was possible (TV, newspapers, films etc ) I moved faster and was not caring much about keeping all the skills gold.
Now when I've completed the tree I can understand most of the simple French. I'm still polishing the skills but I can understand simple language and now it is not that depressing as it was in the first half.
Well done Romtex. Now you must try to keep your tree gold so that you don't forget and it will also improve your fluency.
Congratulations. Thanks for sharing the things you did along the way. Have another Lingot.
