“NOTHING WILL WORK UNLESS YOU DO.” –MAYA ANGELOU

Every now and again I get a negative impression from select posts.

Duolingo is not perfect but I think it's great. In fact I think it's awesome.

With that in mind I searched for a suitable learning quote.

Oh I wish I could agree, When I'm doing German I agree 100%. However, the recent changes to the French tree have made that an uphill struggle, with almost all of the answers refusing to accept English English.

I'm actually pretty fluent in French (7 years at school and read at Uni, though not my first degree + lots of time using it in anger in France), and was only doing it to keep it fresh, but I'm having to spend more time trying to get to grips with American English nuances and "guessing" the expected answers than I can dedicate to the French!

Have a lingot and stay cheerful - I'm dropping French to remain happy and keep what is left of my sanity.

You might try the English for French speakers course. It has its flaws, but maybe you'll find it less annoying than the new French for English speakers course.

I like that. Positive words can make people positive.

If at first you don't succeed google it. My modified and updated version of a famous quote.
