Day 102, Level 17, A Golden Tree in French

Celebrating a small achievement here. Really excited! Thank you Duolingo! I would have to review the grammar points again and try to practice the pronunciation more though. Any suggestions to take it from here?

Next step: translating.

I'm currently translating La belle et la bête from french to English. After that, I'll translate Beauty and the Beast from English back to french.

Read the news. The singer Prince died recently, and twitter and every news outlet from french to English covers it. It's a tragic thing, but these kinds of events are great for us. It's like learning a hundred ways to express a loss and sympathy. The same vocabularies are repeated over and over again that you will remember without writing them down.

Create a blog/a journal to jog down those finer points of grammar and practice writing.

THAT is WONDERFUL idea ! And it's sad that he died , too ... But there might be news in french , like on television , too , and if make it show dialogue at the bottom of the screen , you might see familiar words there !

WooHoo!

Try the reverse tree and you will have to answer in French instead of in English.

Congratulations, dear, well done for all your hard work! Even if all you do is listen to French news, French music (Stromae is always a favourite of mine), and read articles aloud slowly, it will help. Also, translating will certainly refresh you constantly in terms of grammar. Still, well done! :D

I would suggest taking a different class in French as well as reviewing duolingo. Duolingo doesn't teach everything you need to know.

If you are just starting I recommend improving your listening with something pretty easy. Extra French is made for the beginning student. You won't know all of the vocabulary -- but if you watch repeatedly, first with subtitles, then without, you will build comprehension fairly quickly. Here is the link:

Now that you have finished the French tree.... You should try doing the opposite... Complete the English tree pretending you are a native French speaker
