Friends Learning French
Hey, we're learning French!
Hey Emily, I started this discussion yesterday, and now it has over forty comments!!! Hardly any of the other new discussions have that many comments! So, we're both on level 16, although I only have 82 lingots. Erm, I'm up to the skill 'past imperfect' although I have heaps and heaps of skills which I need to strengthen, coz their 'bars' have gone right down. And I've just realized; 'Verbs: past imperfect is the same skill that you're up too!
I had a look at the link, but I couldn't see your name! What section do I look in?
All of my skills are gold except for 8 skills, and I keep trying to strengthen them! On the streak hall of fame, I have a 870 streak and a silver owl (or medal?) and the SHoF gets updated every Sunday, so tomorrow there will be a new streak hall of fame post. What stuff have you bought from the lingot store? Did you know that on Christmas day (and a little before and after, I think) a new french skill comes up on the lingot store called "Christmas", so when Christmas day comes, don't forget to buy it! (I have got everything from the lingot store including "Christmas", "Streak Freeze" and "Double or Nothing".) BTW have you got timed practice?
LOADS of my skills aren't gold!!! Lots to strengthen!!! Erm, I've bought everything I can from the lingot store (except 'double your lingot wager' and 'streak protector'. OK, I'll remember about the Christmas skill! and I've managed to find your name on the streak of fame at last! Keep it up!!!! Just wondering, have you bought the streak protector just in case you accidentally miss a day?
What does that mean? And yes, I have timed practice. and I've just seen that yes, you have streak freeze. Oh, I think I see what you mean now by 'cross edited.'
Yes, it has saved me so many times! Once we went on a weekend holiday without WI-FI, so on the Friday, early in the morning, I did duolingo, and I also did duo late at night on the Sunday evening, so on the Saturday, I didn't lose my streak!
Good. so I guess you always have a streak freeze in handy!!! one way to use up lingots, although you'll always get more lingots as your streak gets better, I suppose!
Wait, I have actually got a 877 streak! Why does it say that i have a 876?!
Oh, it's fixed now! (duo saying that I have a 876 day streak when I actually have a 877 streak)
no idea...I wrote something and it's at the bottom of the discussion. And, what's fixed??? The cross-editing? and we could start a new discussion 'Elizabeth and Emily' or something like that...
Hi Emily, I've started a new discussion on England, check it out...however we can talk on this discussion too. Remember, we HAVE to keep our comments Duo related, otherwise they WILL be deleted!!!
J'ai 52% de maîtrise en français. Et toi? Devons-nous essayer de parler plus français comme ça? Also, why don't you favourite my knitting terms in tinycards? It has 39 likes so please make it 40!
my French fluency is 44% (that is what you asked, isn't it?) and, I've favourite your tinycards.
Bravo, c'est exactement ce que j'ai dis! Merci pour le favouritisme ma "TinyCards"
Shall I start a discussion where we all ask questions in french? You could say things like "where do you live", (in french) to which you could answer something like "in a village next to a forest" (even if you live in a big city). Or if you ask "how old are you", you could answer "1843 years old" (even if you are 2 years old!) and also, I could put a law up saying: NO GOOGLE TRANSLATE!
EDIT: I have now posted it here :https://www.duolingo.com/comment/24228535 please upvote it!
BTW for a few days I have changed my "I love duo" picture to a purple flower that I grew. I also took this picture with my camera!
nice picture, by the ways. I don't really know enough French to be able to ask lots of questions, but I'll join your discussion anyway and do my best!
Hi Emily, let's carry on talking on here too, as my French skills aren't great at the moment!!!
Uhm i am not Emily, but i am learning French, too. Nice to meet you, i'm Chi ! What is your name ?
Hey Cindy, can you speak Albanian, or do you just want a course in Albanian?
Yes i can speak albanian is my native language and i just want other people learn it
Merci! Comment ça va? Mon nom est Lara! Qu'est-ce qui je peux tu appeler?
Hi Elizabeth! Some comments I can reply to, and some I can't, so I will just tell you the good news here: ALL OF MY SKILLS ARE GOLD!!!!!!!!
AWESOME!!!! I'm a long way from there...ah well. Keep up the good work.... Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We're learning French. Woohoooooooooooo!!!
When did you start learning French on duo? It tells you at "Learning since" in: Settings, Profile. I have been learning since 2015-02-15. (And I can't be bothered to type this out in French!)
And also, which picture do you think i should stick with: the purple flower or the "I love duo" heart?
that's fine, but you don't have to know Welsh to use the discussion!
BTW there are 2 of my comments/questions near the bottom of my discussion...
I've started learning in May 2016....well, you could swap between the flower and heart. Flower one month, heart another, and so on. I'm not sure which comments you mean on your discussion, BTW.
The comments about fruit and XP are the ones that I mean. Did you learn any french before duo? I learnt a little when I was younger. Good to see you but I forgot to ask you for your email! I'll have to wait until next week. See you soon!
BTW shall we have a kind of xp contest against each other starting on monday?
Yes, I learnt a bit of French using Rosetta Stone!!! Yes, good to c u too...and I forgot to ask for your email as well! Hopefully one of us remembers next week, coz then we'll be able to talk properly...
So, what kind of XP contest do you suggest? Something like, who gets the most on each day? Then we add up the number of days that we've got the highest XP, and the one with the highest number of days wins? Or just who gets the most XP in one week?
I mean (for the xp contest), that on the leader board, it says each month, week and all time how much xp we have got in one week. So we could all work one week try to get as much xp as possible, and on Sunday we can see who has got the most. ;) BTW I have a 888 streak!
I think just you and me to start off with, and we could start on monday!
Hi Emily, let's keep the XP challenge going. AWWWWW! did u get my email yet?
Hello people! Nice to meet you all! My name is Woof. I can only speak English but I'm learning French, Spanish, and Japanese.
Hello Woof!!!!! thanks for joining the discussion. Keep going with French.
Oh no! I think there are 25 levels in French! You're doing well with Spanish.
Merci. But you can finish the tree before level 25 actually. I have seen some people who finished theirs at level 11. Are you planning to take other languages when you finish French and Welsh, or will you take your them further, or neither one?
yes, I think the trees vary in length. I'm not sure whether I'll take my languages further yet. How about you?
