Progressing to the Next Level

Can anyone help? I've finished level 11 in French, which is the end of the "tree". I keep getting emails from Duolingo telling me I need 320 XP to progress to level 12 but without offering any information as to how I can get those 320 XP (or otherwise progress to level 12). If there even is a level 12 in French...

Any guidance most appreciated.

just keep reviewing the lessons. As you do you will continue to level up

And there will be new words and phrases added to learn as you xp progresses. 25 is the highest level. But xp is unlimited.

When you finish the tree you just have to practise to get up to level 25. Thanks

Congratulations on completing your French skill tree!

You will learn much more French words and more difficult sentences by using the "Strengthen" features.

Other ways you could improve your French:

Apart from that

  • read a newspaper article every day and try to learn its new words
  • listen to podcasts, watch movies with or without subtitles
  • converse with a native speaker as much as possible
  • write smaller texts, upload them on http://translatihan.com/ and let them be corrected by native speakers
  • more information in:
    "Can you give some links about French?" https://www.duolingo.com/comment/23462458

There are numerous possibilities. Duolingo will only bring you to an A2/(B1) skill level in reading/writing and A1 (maybe A2) in listening/talking.

Info about language levels:

Read from "Common reference levels".

Good luck.
