I completed the French tree!
Hi everybody, I love Duolingo! I finished my French tree at Level 13 in 39 days with 71% fluency. I maintained the gold status of all the skills along the way each day. I had a head-start, because I completed Grade 11 French in high school in Canada in 1984, and I passed a graduate level reading requirement in university in 1993, but that was many years ago. At the moment, thanks to Duo, my French is better than ever! I felt good about my reading before, but now, I feel feel much more comfortable with speaking, and I am better at listening also. I tested at level B1. Now, I will do the reverse tree: English from French.
