7 month progress Video

Hi everyone,

I hope everyone's french learning process is going great.

I recently finished the Duolingo skill tree after six months on Duolingo.

In total, I have practised French for about 7 months now. I started from scratch in the beginning of 2017 where all I could say was Bonjour and Merci.

I made a progress update video on my French learning in French. I still make a lot of mistakes and struggle to express a lot of things but I think it's going great so far.

I hope those who are new to French can get inspired by this and the veterans can give me feedback on the mistakes I made so I can improve.

Thanks, Orgil.

Oh my gosh! You speak like you were born French. Keep up the good work!!! ;) And Congrats!

Haha thanks for the compliment but I am nowhere near there yet. I hope to speak like a native one day but still got a long way to go :D

This is really encouraging to read :) I joined Duolingo a week ago and have started the French course. Starting from scratch just like you, so it's amazing to see that there's hope with some hard work and practise


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Orgilicious

Thanks, and keep practising :D I think I've invested around 200-300 hours in total. There were moments when I thought I wasn't making any progress but I just kept at it consistently. With hard work, anyone can do it :)

How is your listening comprehension by now?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Orgilicious

It's not bad but I do get lost when people speak really fast or use complex sentences on a native level. I watch a lot of animated series like How to Train your Dragon or Troll Hunters with french audio on Netflix. I understand about 70-80% of the conversations there. But I sometimes play Counter-Strike with French teammates and talk to them on Team Speak and that's a whole another challenge. They speak really fast and use a lot of native slangs and things so they are much harder to understand in comparison to the animated films.

Congratulations! You're doing really good and I actually understood everything what you said, but my speech is not as good as yours. I'd probably stutter way more haha. Good luck :)
