900 French words learned.
have a sunny sunday everybody.
Do you also have the feeling you know them from long term memory? I apparently 'know' 750, yet when I look through the list most I might recognise but not know in an instant, others I have no idea but 'passed the word because I could make up the meaning through the other words in the sentence. I think only one third of the 750 I know by heart. But even that feels wrong as I can not recall much in an instant except sentences I do not need like 'j'aime les hommes calme et riche', lol, I am not even sure that's written right. Maybe my brain is getting old!
Donc, je n'ai jamais su que vous pouvez voir le nombre de mots que vous avez appris, jusqu'à maintenant. Bravo!
Congratulations! I have a question. Just signed up for duolingo after reading rave reviews. I have some past experience with French, but didn't test out enough to advance so started at the beginning. My question is this, I've been using the course for at least 3 hours, keep advance to the next level, and yet the format is still the same, i.e. I am a boy and you are a girl or some variation. There have been NO new words introduced, merely a repitition of of this. Each segment even asks the question what is French for Yes, or No. What is English for Oui or Non. Multiple times, I feel like it's a bad dream where everyday I wake up and nothing it's the same day over and over again, much like Ground Hog's Day. I'm about to quit, I keep hoping things will change but my patience is running out.
Can you offer any help with this? I realize this is not the topic of your post but I'm grasping at straws here.
Did you click on the next set? One you completed one set of subject, you can move on to the next and they have new words.
3 hours ?? have you done again and again the very first basics of the tree ? !!
In one unit (the rond thing with several lessons in it) there are from 2 to...maybe 6 lessons to do . Once you have done them an other unit is available or maybe 2 or 3 at the same time . The units which are available that you havn't finished yet are purple . The ones not available yet are grey, you can't go into them .
You probably level up the crowns level in very few units that you have repeated a lot ! The best (especially for the begining of the tree) is to do the minimum lessons required to make new units available ...and do those ones ! Otherwise ..it would be very annoyiiiinnnng......
Bonne continuation :)
