I am level seventeen in french ( 17 )
French stories were a great addition from Duolingo. Stories pronunciation is much perfect comparing to google pronunciation. The interactions are well planned and the two styles of voice speed enable us more. Here is my duty to say " thank you duolingo ". I hope one day duolingo becomes more capable to push us more by facilitating the voice chat between a learner and a native volunteer.Up till now,that goal is hardly achieved because most natives want " money" for that effort. It is my duty to thank those real french maximum level passers like " Olja" and " Username ". From those active participants,I became motivated and they were like a flag over a mountain in front of my eyes. I hope every one here (including me ),to find himself catching the flag of 25 of his ( or her ) beloved language .
I had 70%, but now I have 69%. I'm pretty sure 70% is near the limit of how high you can get. Try keeping all your lessons golden. Also, don't worry about what it displays on duolingo; try reading French children's stories or interacting with other French media. It'll do more to improve your ability.
