100 days streak in French :)
Hello everyone, today achieved 100 days in the language I'm learning. I am glad that I have managed so far and I wish to keep on going so that I can accomplish my goal of being fluent in French. :)
Congrats! How far are you into the tree?
I believe the best way to become fluent is first to complete the tree. Then you will need some kind of immersion. You do not need to go to France for that: you can read books, watch films, chat with people on forums and ideally also have audio conversations (that is the last step, in my opinion, when you are able to understand people).
Bonne continuation. :)
I was actually asking if you had completed the tree, or only done half of it, for example. The French tree has 3 checkpoints (not counting the 3 optional bonus skills, these sections contain 7 + 11 + 19 = 37 skills), and 41 skills after the third checkpoint. So there are 78 skills to complete, plus 3 bonus skills (the third one is only available during Christmas time, I believe). Are you almost done with all of them?
The levels, on the other hand, only depend on the amount of XP. They are a kind of incentive. First, to complete the tree, then to repeat all lessons over and over until we reach level 25 (with 30,000 XP). But they do not mean much, because it is possible to reach level 25 by doing the first lesson 1,500 times with timed practice.
Salut ! J'ai appris aussi, comme toi, le français sur Duolingo, et maitenant j'ai ouvert un blog en français. Si tu veux, tu pourrais jetter un coup d'oeil, et peut-être tu vas continuer à pratiquer le français, en lisant des courriels. Merci d'avance et bon courage ! https://lafrancaisedemd.wordpress.com/
