Finally, I have slain the French dragon!

In November 2013, I started a quest to conquer my French tree. Little did I know that the road to success would be long, hard and bumpy. Now after 4 years of blood, sweat, and heartache, I am proud to announce that I have completed this quest and mastered my tree!

Victory is mine and oh how sweet it feels! I'm basking in the warm light of success and enjoying all the spoils of warrrr!

I just want to thank Duolingo for being awesome and providing this platform for free!

Now I shall start new quests and pray that the journey is smoother and SHORTER lol.

P.s. I'm looking for some cool and active penpals to help me practice and improve my French. Any takers? :) .

The fact that it was a hard-won victory must make it all the sweeter. Congrats!

I've had good luck finding pen pals on ConversationExchange.com
You fill out a profile and then you can search by gender, age, nationality, common interests...

Congrats on your tree! It sounds like you really earned it! I took the slow and mostly steady road as well. I followed it up with Memrise courses to increase my vocab and I recommend them highly.

Great job! Now all you have to do is the reverse tree! :P

If you want, I'd love to have a penpal, too! (I've done the English-French tree twice and the French-English one once, so I understand French pretty well.) Let me know what you think!

February 25, 2017

I would love that!

the reverse tree? Is that just going from the last lesson to the first? or is there an actual reverse tree?

I think they mean do the French to English course

It's what kat612831 said: the "reverse tree" is making the language you were learning into your source language, so the reverse of the English-French tree would be the French-English one. Thus, all the notes, settings, and original phrases are in French. The only thing with it is that you should turn off the speaking exercises since it's not very helpful. :P

Congratulation! I suspect that your tree is all gold now :) I try to do the same. First, I always make repetitions and then move on. I am on the last branch, but still there is a long way ahead of me.
