After 2 long years I have successfully completed the French tree. All those who are still doing it keep on going, you can do it. Upvote if you think I am right.

Congrats mate! I have recently started German and atm I am still enjoying it. However I am curious if you feel like you can speak proper French now? Or if you are able to understand a French native speaker in daily life conversation? There are so many weird sentences in the German course and I have no clue if I will be able to speak properly or not.. Anyways well done!

Could you go to France and actually know what people are saying?

3/1/2017, 12:24:24 AM

https://www.duolingo.com/GeoNalugala

Yes. Probably, you want to hear them speaking a little slowly at first, but over time, you get what they are saying.

Personally, I listed to Radio France International, watch France 24 TV, TV5 Monde and CCTV Francais. I am able to understand the stories, though new words keep popping up; and accents vary, especially in African French.

RFI has a very good show. It's called "Le journal en français facile". They speak not too fast, and explain difficult words.

https://savoirs.rfi.fr/fr/apprendre-enseigner/langue-francaise/journal-en-francais-facile

But you could find even easier french news though podcasts, almost every major podcasts sites have some.

No, even if he gets to Level 25 and he completes the tree, he won't be completely fluent.

No you can't. It takes a lot more practice reading, writing and listening before you can do that but it gives you a good start.
