I finished my French tree!
Hi everyone. I just finished my French tree after over 1 year and 5 months of being on Duolingo.
French is the first language I started, and hopefully, soon, will be my second language.
I also started Esperanto a while back, and finished my tree. So this isn't my first. :)
For all of you who are still working through your tree, I find that it helps to do at least 20 minutes of it every day. The streak is a great motivation.
Another great motivation is XP competitions. After I did my 20 minutes today -Musicatrix-'s XP competition motivated me to get more XP and finish that tree today. If it wasn't for her, I would have finished it a day later. :)
Here are some of the people that helped me a long the way..
All my siblings and my dad.
Lapakiboy7 (deactivated, sadly)
ALoUSyUseRnaME (aka Airehn)
All of the mods (just to name a few: lindakanga, Lrtward, Usagiboy7, and sitesurf)
And especially, the entire Duolingo staff. I'm sure we all thank you, for all the hard work you put into this free site.
Thanks for reading,
Congratulations! And do you know what's more impressive than completing the French tree? Getting a level 25 in it!! Amazing! So a double congratulations to you. :-)
YAY!!!! Grabs your hands and dances a snoopy dance with you I'm so excited and proud of you dear, and its so sweet of you to include me in your list! You were one of my very first Duolingo friends, and you (Along with Katie (M.L), Sophie, and Lexa) really made me feel welcome when I didn't have anyone else in the beginning. Y'all are the best!! Hugs tightly, tearing up and laughing
Awwww....so do I. I thought you were like, the best thing since sliced bread, Maybe I still do. Grins and hugs back 3
Amaaaazing work, Emily! :-D
Completing these trees is not an easy task, especially if you really put the time and effort into studying each skill.
I remember completing our Esperanto trees together in that tree race a couple months back (well, sort of together - you beat me by finishing it way before me!) and I feel like I learned very little in that time. I know that French is your 'jam', however, and you've been working on it for a long while! Keep plugging away; repetition is the key to success!
And so... Congratulations Emily (a.k.a. Amazing Potential Girl :-) )
Enjoy a disgruntled kitten gif on me!
Awesome job, Em! Congrats! Thanks for the mention as well! I'm so glad to be your friend. :D hug
Please tell me if learning French on Duo lingo also means you can have normal conversations with native French people?
I would like to finish my French tree too and even try to be "100%" fluent on duo lingo.
Hopefully this will happen this August or September.
But I want to know how much is it useful in real life?
(English is not my native language so sorry if there are some grammar mistakes)
You will never get to 100%. It only goes up to 74%, but most people end up to around 50-60%. And to achieve real fluidity, you will need to use outside resources. I think a short conversation would be achievable, though. Best of luck!
Thank you! Good thing you told me about the 74% or I would try to reach something impossible. You too, Good luck!
If Ermaly was the one who gave 101 lingots... you just accomplished making Hairhen mad! >:( xD
I didn't, seriously!!! looks at haaaaaaaarehn and hopes that she will believe me before things get ugly
Thanks for including me, and congratulations!!! Well done, Emily, you are... so inspiring. Keep going! :D hugsssss
bravo! Vraiment c'est génial !!! J'espère que tu es fier de toi parce-que honnêtement ça vaut le coup :) bravo encore, c'est vraiment super pour toi !
Congratulations Emily! I'm so very proud of you! :D
Thanks for the mention, btw. ;)
