Wouldn't it be awesome if we could all have a buddy on Duolingo that would talk to us like a normal person and in my case in French! If you got stuck with a word in the conversation with them then they would help you out and teach you how to say and spell that word properly! It wouldn't be a real person but just a mechanical person that is programmed to respond to different words with their own. Just a thought but please let me know what you think!!!
You can enter the French discussion forum and ask if anyone wants to practice conversation via Activity stream. :)
