Hi everyone! Thanks for clicking. I would like to start a Duolingo discussion group where we can help each other learn French by asking questions or reading a story and coming back to all talk about the questions we didn’t get about it. Please, please, please join! If you are joining, good for you! Below, say your French fluency, your level of French and even a little about yourself!
PS. Please follow me!

Salut tout le monde ! Je m'appelle Kayla et j'étudie le français depuis plusieurs années. J'ai tendance à ne pas utiliser DuoLingo très souvent mais un de mes buts de 2018, c'est de completer ENFIN le cours de français. N'hésitez pas à me poser une question si vous avez besoin d'aide. :)
Je vais suivre tous les membres de cette discussion. Suivez-moi si vous voulez ! C'est un plaisir de vous rencontrer. :D
Hi everyone! I'm Kayla and I've been studying French for several years. I tend not to use DuoLingo very often but one of my 2018 goals is to FINALLY finish the French course. Feel free to ask me a question if you need any help. :)
I'm going to follow everyone in this discussion. Follow me if you want! It's a pleasure to meet you. :D
Alright! Thanks for joining and following! Before I get started forgetfulunicorn asked “is this a discussion group.” To answer your question, yes it is if you need any more info go ahead and ask as many questions as you’d like. If anyone else has questions.... Just ask! Anyone can answer we are here to learn and help each other do that with questions. So back to French, has anyone read any Duolingo stories? If you have, say which set you are on.
Thanks again! ~ The creator of French Learners click here!!!!
Update: I'm a French tutor and I let my students choose a DuoLingo story to read together. J'ai suggéré « Au camping » mais ils ont choisi « La boîte secrète » (ce que je n'avais pas encore lu) et c'était bien bizarre de lire une telle histoire avec eux. [SPOILER] The husband is some kind of secret agent and his wife threatens to leave him??? Ce n'est pas exactement ce que j'aurais choisi de lire avec mes élèves. Il me semblait que l'histoire les a plus, au moins. Moral of the story: Always preview material you plan on sharing with your students. ^^"
Par exemple, je suis toujours un auteur français très faible, quoique je puisse lire pas mal. Donc j'utilise Reverso pour traduire quand j'essaye de dire quoi que ce soit plus que "j'ai un chat noir". Je triche bien sûr, et la traduction ne sera pas parfaite, mais au moins je peux transmettre plus que "j'ai un chat noir" et je fais observer la traduction en mouvement, bien que ce ne soit pas parfaite.
I would like to join this group! I was thinking of starting a post for conversation in French, but this fits the bill quite nicely. Thank you for starting it. My DuoLingo fluency is at 53% and I have been learning slowly for several years now but I'm really trying to get fluent(-ish) now. I am just starting Tier III of the Stories.
Hey everyone, I just want to make sure that this group is still active. Also, I have an idea for the "study group" portion of this discussion. This site has public-domain books with parallel texts in French and English. We could start one of those and any specific questions can be asked in here for help. It will also be incentive to read however much we decide to read because there are other people reading it and a defined end date that we have to read it by instead of "I'll get to it eventually." If someone wants to do a "yes" post and a "no" post so we can vote on the idea without gumming the discussion up it would be much appreciated.
