  5. Finished my French tree!


Finished my French tree!

I don't know how to say it. But it's over. The beautiful journey and experience on Duolingo...and things don't feel the same after you have been on this roller coaster ride.

Level: 19 Words learnt: 2624 Total XP: 13926 Streak: 488 Lingots: 1445 Time taken: ~ less than 2 years.

I took my own sweet time - I didn't have any reason to hurry up. Actually, I didn't really come to Duo for French. But since I didn't find the language I wanted, I started this. I don't know what I was thinking at that time, but I am glad I did it. I had done only the first 2 - 3 skills a long time back, but having new-found interest in languages, I came back and finished it.

I must say, this really changed my life! It makes me see a lot of things in a whole new way. The way I think has changed. It makes you a better person. I didn't want it to be over, but all good things come to an end.

To all those who would quit - DON'T. Stick to the end and you will feel a whole new sense of achievement and happiness at the end.

Also, the community here is a really diverse and a great one. Wish me luck on the reverse tree and the DELF/DALF exam :) A huge 'Merci beaucoup' to the entire Duo team and the French team! You can't learn a language the same, great way like on Duo. And you can't have that without such an amazing team.

Congratulations!!! And congratulations for finding and adding so much value to your studies!

I add my thanks to the French team who so lovingly put this together and answered people's questions so well on all the exercise sentences. Very well done! This was a whole lot more fun than French in high school!


Thanks! Yup, the team really deserve the recognition. You have got a great streak - you must preserve it :)
