Duolngo is a pretty good way to learn languages and French is pretty easy to learn using Duolingo. If you got any questions about french ask me. Learning French is pretty neat. Once you get the hang of it is becomes super easy. You should practice lots of times and do it ooften or you might forget some french! Good luck on learning French! =)
I have to agree with ya! French is pretty easy if ya know a little English! :D I do learn a little French in School since I'm Canadian so I do use Duolingo to improve it :)
Being canadian,would you mind to tell me what type of french language certifications approved in canada as a proof for knowing french.I am a physician and seeking to work in canada.
Learning Duolingo French is pretty easy but I've just come back from a short trip to France and it only fortified my understanding that I am still very much a beginner. I can say pretty much everything I need to say as a tourist but understanding what is being said to me or conducting a conversation at a normal speed was way above my level. Still I know that with work and the addition of the other resources I am using as well as Duolingo it will come good in the end.
Do you know anywhere were I can practice French conjugations? I realized that my poor skills with them is the main reason I have trouble understanding spoken French.
The pronunciation is really hard for me, give me advice... (my native language isn't English, although I use English for my base language)
You can try to listen to French songs (they have some great songs!) and follow the lyrics, you can easily find any lyrics on the internet, and if you learn some you can just sing along, like in Karaoke, it may be lots of fun this way, cause singing always smooths things out
Just listening to the language improves the pronunciation. You don't even need to understand the words, your brain gets used to the unfamiliar sounds when you listen while you do other things. You could try audio books from LibriVox https://librivox.org/search?primary_key=2search_category=languagesearch_page=1search_form=get_results There always is a link to the written text on the catalogue page.
Duolingo is good but it doesn't help you get fluent at French. I use Duolingo to help me better understand French class and what my teacher is saying so....
It actually sort of does you just have to listen to it over and over again, see how it's pronounced and you can check the meaning to know how it's used, what it's used for and the pronunciation It just doesn't really give you it directly and you could also use other resources on the internet
first it's the original word for saying like Je aime (I like) Tu aiment (You like Singular) and vous aimez (you like Plural) and if that doesn't work jut try to sort of remember them and say them and the french meaning a couple of times
They sound the same, but Tu aimes is correct.
- J’aime -Tu aimes -Il/Elle aime -Nous aimons -Vous aimez -Ils/Elles aiment
Truly, unfortunately, there is no way to learn the verbs without memorizing the conjugations; it’s truly necessary. All regular ER verbs use this conjugation.
Thanks , I thought so. Aiment is used for the plurals only is it not?
Correct: aiment is only used for the third person plural. Also, remember that you never pronounce the “ent” at the end of it. In other words, never pronounce the “ent” ending of the third person plural.
If you got a question about learning french in Duolingo you can ask me! =)
Everyone learns a language at their own pace. For me, French isn't too hard, but I have reached some problems on the way.
I mainly use duolingo for vocabulary purposes. I find it helpful to buy some french books and do grammar their instead of Duolingo, because Duolingo goes at a much slower pace than me, and possibly many others; I'm still not fluent in French, but I know a lot more about it due to outside research (I'm not saying Duolingo is bad, i actually love the website/app.). The key point of this paragraph is that it is helpful to learn a language from multiple resources, because it can help you find out which resources you prefer the most.
