I've had my first conversation in French

[deactivated user]

    dude it felt so good that i could type with the guy. we were playing a strategy game called warlight and france was mentioned. because i really like the french language, i started typing in french and some dude followed me and we started to discuss the syntax of different languages. fortunately, i only had to use the present tense because i'm still only a lvl 10 and so i don't know anything about other tenses (a bit of the present perfect, kinda) but that's it.

    the one thing i can tell you is that it feels so good. if you're thinking about giving up, like me, because you've to do some lesson 10 times over and over bcuz you dont memorize the vocabulary, trust me, you're giving up on climbing the mountain that is to learn a new language. i'm not even at the top but this conversation was like a break during the journey, like i stopped climbing and looked to the horizon for a moment and said to myself "damn, nice view from up here."

    thank you very much duolingo staff and keep studying boys!!!

    Excellent! J'apprends le Francaise pour ma fille. elle est attendre l'ecole francophone. Je parle un petit peux, mais je pense que il y a un travaille difficille pour moi. Bravo And in English: keep on, keeping on ;)

    Elle est attendre ( She is reaching / she is arriving at ) should be Elle va à ( she goes to/she is going to ) .. l'ecole francophone. Ce n'est pas difficile d'apprendre le français avec un peu de temps et de patience. Regardez-moi ! J'ai su presque à nul l'an dernier.

    Keep it up! As an older learner with little success with languages in school I never though I had the aptitude for learning languages, turns out I just needed the right attitude for learning languages.

    I agree, attendre being the verb to wait in French. Put in that way is a mistake.

    J'aime Warlight aussi ! Veuillez continuer d'apprendre le français. C'est vraiment fantastique de le parler et comprendre.

    Je suis en complet accord avec vous! Le français est certes une langue que certains intitulent capricieuse (celle-ci possédant une myriade d'exceptions) mais elle demeure belle à entendre!

    Ô, je pense qu'il était moi (le kazakh). Néanmoins, féliciation! (Et la raison que je n'ai pas le français sur Duolingo est parce que j'ai appris le français il y a longtemps).

      I'm learning too. I try to break it down so I don't get overwhelmed.

      Just take it slow, one day at a time, and only move on when you feel you "own" what you have learned... You'll start speaking it before you know it.
