Thank you Duolingo!
Thank you Duolingo! I have been using you for nearly a month now and I can't explain how grateful I am for you helping to improve my French. I am taking French in school and started Duolingo to get rid of my rusty skills and to help me study for a contest, "Le grand concours," AKA "The National French Exam." With Duolingo, I got a 68/70 on it and am very happy! I won a national gold medal! (I was above the 95th percentile). I'm not sure how I would have done without Duolingo. Also, now, in class, I know most of what my teacher is teaching, and I can impress her by using vocab that we haven't learned yet and by speaking in the past tense! I am very happy that I started Duolingo and I will continue it for a long time to come!
Merci! Thank You!
Very Nice! I'm also in a similar predicament, where I decided to use duolingo to help me in my French classes and honestly, it was like a drop of water in a desert!
I couldn't be more grateful as i can now understand many things ahead of time, use new vocab and understand grammar better than most of my classmates!
It also helped improve my self-esteem, as before hand i hated French because i thought i couldn't do it, but ends up i was wrong! Duolingo helped me learn to believe in myself and that i can learn whatever i want if i Put my mind into it!
Hopefully you continue to grow and learn, and one day become fluent in French!! :)
