Level 25 in French, but no fanfare!
Hi Duolingoids, I made it to Level 25 in French today, after 294 days, but there was no fanfare, no celebration, no anything... except, of course, a feeling of accomplishment. (I was on Tree 3 if anybody is interested.) I have been very pleased lately about my vast improvement in listening ability. At the beginning, I needed to use the slow feature for many of the listening exercises, but now I have to use it barely at all. Duolingo works!
Just the fact that I can understand your post easily is proof that Duolingo works!! How can we share this magical site with the rest of the world? Canada is supposed to be a bilingual country, but most anglophones here speak English only, despite the fact that we start French in school at nine years old. Sadly, our French language teaching in the modern school system is inefficient at best.
