I finished my French tree!!!!!!
I finished all 5 levels of all lessons in the French tree. Yeah!!!! I've now finished both the Spanish and French trees. I think I'm going to take a break now. :)
I did that and really enjoyed it. (My level 19 is from the EN for ES course.) There was vocabulary in it that I hadn't encountered in the ES for EN course. Also, it had me typing in Spanish a lot more than in English, which pushed me to really have to learn the Spanish, rather than just recognize is. :)
Im on my phone so it's hard to follow the nesting order of comments. I think youre asking if people have taken a course consisting of two non-native languages. They have. It's a strategy called "laddering". :D
Often, if the options allow, people here will complete a "Standard tree" course, where their native language is the base language and the target language is what they want to learn. For me, I took Spanish from English.
After finishing that, they do the "Reverse" tree. So, for me, I learned English from Spanish.
Along the way, I also took a Standard course, learning Japanese from English. If there was a Spanish from Japanese or Japanese from Spanish course, I would take that tree. This is a type of "Triangle Laddering" people can do to gain more experience with their target languages.
A second type of strategy just called "Laddering." This strategy is to study a completely new language from one of the learner's target languages. So, for me this could be learning French from Spanish, or French from Japanese. It's learning a totally new language from a previous language one studied here that was a non-native language for the learner. (I hope that description makes sense.)
These are all popular strategies for people who want to keep using Duolingo to further their studies after finishing a tree. It keeps them in contact with their target language(s) longer and in new ways without have to leave Duolingo. :)
Focus on one language at a time, mate. After you finish the first one the others are much easier, especially if you're doing some them from a language that you already know. Also, I take advantage of the Test Out feature a lot. And of course, don't use only Duolingo for language learning. ;-) Try to read news in French at least a few minutes per day, in the beginning, its boring, but after some time you'll see the progress. Use google translate chrome extension to help you with that.
Asgerfo, Duolingo doesn't advertise as getting people to fluency. It was created to help people get a really good handle of the basics. Using the CEFR rating, if people learn everything in the course, they can reach an A2. They will generally need more listening comprehension and practice speaking to reach a B1. For people learning Spanish from English, the Duolingo Spanish Podcast can help get them closer to B1's listening comprehension requirements. Duolingo's forums offer people an opportunity to ask the community for additional resources that will help them continue to advance. :)
Salut ngraner, quelques astuces pour ton apprentissage du français. La langue n'est pas capitalisée, tout simplement 'français', tu dois conjuguer la verbe 'lire' en 3eme personne sing. ici 'lisez' et pour la phrase finale, 'bien' fait plus de sens que 'bon'. Bien qu'on dise 'c'est très bon comme livre' il faut dire 'le livre était très bien'. Bonne chance et j'espère que ça aide!
