Finally conquered the French tree in 61 days

After 61 days I've finally finished the French tree. I know it does not end here so I'll be reading French books for children which I hope could help me understand much more advanced French easily and speak fluently as well.

Thank you Duolingo for making me realize that studying really needs to be done regularly.

Finishing the French tree in 61 days is pointless, You haven't given your brain enough time to remember everything. That will be reflected because your tree will decay massively all at once. It sounds like you've done six new lessons a day to achieve completion of the 350 or so lessons and just skipped the practice. On the odd chance that you did practice these, it would still be more effective doing it over a longer period of time, especially because the average intended use is 3 lessons a day. (and a mixture of practice and new ones.) In short, Duolingo uses spaced repitition... It looks like you've defeated the purpose by not 'spacing'.

That's great. I really want to finish French on Duolingo by the end of August but I'm glad you made it :)

I don't know how you did that as I complete sections and when I return to the website it shows branches that were complete - incomplete. I am confused. Can you help? Or where do I get help from?

This is normal and encourages you to practice the vocabulary in that part of the tree after a certain amount of time. It happens less often if you practice some flashcards in the Words section each time you work on the tree. You can either continue through and do all the lessons then go back to make the tree golden through practice, or you can keep it golden as you go along. You probably retain the information better by practicing as you go along, but it also takes longer. Good luck with your French.
