Persistence and repetition. It’s not hard to learn languages - kids do it all the time - but it takes a lot of time.

Also, as much as possible find people to speak with. I’m probably B2 in reading and A2(-) in speaking, as I have a fear of making mistakes.

I wish that I had repeated every phrase out loud right from the beginning to try to help my fear of speaking.

Don't stress about new modules that blow your mind, a week later they will start to make sense. Persistence is definitely the key, for me anyway! :-)

When you realize you're struggling with a specific word, write it and/or put it in a list. When you've finished with several Duolingo lessons (and redone them), you will have a list of "priority" words- words that need much more attention than other ones that you aren't struggling with. This method works well for me personally, but we all have different methods. Just a suggestion ^^

Put to use what you have learnt.

Do the things you like, it is going to be a long haul. Focus on the parts you are most interested in.

use visuals with note cards and matching games and immerse yourself in films and music.
