Do you enjoy duolingo?

I enjoy duolingo much more than other ways of learning languages. But now when I've finished my duolingo French tree I think I don't enjoy always strengthening my exercises as I've already done them a lot of times. What is your opinion about duolingo?

I love Duo especially Discussion, but I sometimes find it a little boring.

Hi, Duolingo is best seen as a basic course. Try doing the reverse tree, French to English. This is my second time of doing the complete tree. I also us "French fo Summies, the 8 in 1 book is excellent. Buy used copies on Amazon. It is difficult to learn all the grammar. Also, translate your own statement and practice!! Bonne chance.

It's good for beginners, but learning a language with it alone won't work out. It only teaches you grammar and vocabs and some (at times stupid lol) sentences, but not how to communicate/speak. And it also can get boring cuz it's always the same but,as I said, for beginners really a good thing :3

Then there's this thing with the lingots. A bunch of people already complained that they can't spend them on anyting, they have too many. I'm excited for the Duolingo Stories tho, although it'll probably take quite a while till it's finished :>

You will learn much more French words and more difficult sentences by using the "Strengthen" features.
Here is the link to "Best Way to Make Your Tree Turn Gold and Stay Gold"

Other ways you could improve your French:

Apart from that

  • read a newspaper article every day and try to learn its new words
  • listen to podcasts, watch movies with or without subtitles
  • converse with a native speaker as much as possible
  • write smaller texts, upload them on lang-8.com and let them be corrected by native speakers a.s.o.

There are numerous possibilities. Duolingo will only bring you to an A2/(B1) skill level in reading/writing and A1 (maybe A2) in listening/talking.

Info about language levels:

Read from "Common reference levels".

Good luck.
