I think duolingo is great! recommend it to all your friends!
Hi duolingo users, starting to learn a little f French over here. Seems pretty difficult but we would see, my native language is Spanish and I learn English by my own, so, I hope to do the same with French and some other languages. See you around.
You'll have a lot of help here, every time you don't understand something, go in the forum and ask for explanations.
You might find it actually a bit easier than English, since the grammar has a lot of similarities with the Spanish one. If you need some help with grammar in the beginning, check this discussion. It's a list PERCE_NEIGE and I started with references to good French grammar tips in discussions around the French forum. Along the way we got help from a few others, including Rémy, the Duolingo staff member responsible for the French course.
