J'ai atteint le niveau 25
I started my French tree about 18 months ago and it's been an amazing journey. Like most Canadians, I was forced to study French at a young age until first year high school. But I absolutely hated French. I found it really difficult and was happy to forget everything after my last exam, which was over 14 years ago. But after finishing my Spanish tree and a few months really studying the language using various sources, as well as having studied Japanese and Polish for some time, I took a stab at French again, a language I had given up hope on.
Now after 18 months, after finishing my entire French tree over 5 times, keeping it golden, practicing with pen pals through apps and Skype, watching countless number of Youtube videos, watching my favourite shows in French or at least with subtitle, I've gotten a fairly good grasp of the language and have tested at a B1 level.
I'm really thankful for Duoling as I learned more from this site/app alone in 1 month than 9 years of French in school. My goal is to one day speak about 15 languages and to be especially fluent in the 6 languages of the United Nation, English, French, Spanish, Chinese. Russian and Arabic. Without a doubt, Duo and this community has definitely been a big help towards my progress.
Je souhaite à tous bonne chance avec leur français. Si tu as la passion, tu peux apprendre n'importe quoi.
You remind me of my French learning 20 years ago: one semester of study and not touch any french words again. And i forget almost everything either. to meet two business partners from France next month, i began my duolingo trip 45 days ago by choosing French class for English speakers. Now i am in 15 level and pass though all courses twice.
Videos on Youtube are good(like Chez Mimi, Bienvenue en France), others reading materials either. however i want to say much more. i hope i can find a pen pal or someone language exchange ones.
I am a native Chinese speaker. any specific advises on how i can speak/talk much in French.
Merci pour votre sujet. Je viens de Chine Beijing. voulez-vous parler la France avec moi? :)
