Hey I am new
I have been on and off with duolingo for the last 2 and a half years and I am starting anew learning french. Just saying hello to the duolingo community. Any advice for someone starting out?
Buy a streak freeze. Read the Tips & notes. Remember to revise earlier material, but don't become enslaved to the re-gilding process.
Edit: iOS now has Bots in French. Worth borrowing a device if you don't have one.
Welcome! I personally find keeping a language notebook or file useful.
bonjour et bion courage! Try to practice every day for at least 30 minutes for steady fluency of the language. Find some french friends and conversate with them as much as you can.
