How can I practice French if no one I know speaks it?
I don't know anyone who speaks french, so are there any ideas on how I could practice it other than duolingo?
http://www.conversationexchange.com - you create an account and then search for practice partners. You can search by various criteria such as gender, age, nationality, hobbies. You can search for pen pals, audio chat partners, or video chat partners. You can use their internal messaging service if you don't want to give out your email address.
Also check out iTalki, weSpeke, Busuu, HelloTalk, Tandem, and goSpeaky.
Yes! But you have to be at least 18 to use the service. (Please don't anyone mention their age here on Duolingo; it's against the guidelines)
Try writing consistently in a journal in French, just about your everyday life. You get to quickly improve your skills and also get to figure out what words are missing from your vocabulary. Really helped me a lot.
Here's another one I forgot about, because I only recently learned about it. It's like the old Verbling chat service, where you can just hop into an impromptu chat in the language/difficulty level of your choice: https://www.free4talk.com/
And a link to an online article that talks about the various strengths and weaknesses of online language exchange sites: https://www.lifewire.com/free-language-exchange-websites-1357059
have you considerd paying a visit to any french-speaking countries? If not then you might wanna find online ways to chat with french-speaking countries. Or if that is not available as well then just practise on your own by speaking out loud..
For now i will just have to go online because I don't have enough to go a french speaking country. I will definitely in the future though
You've received a lot of good suggestions for outside duolingo, which I am totally npting down for myself.
In addition, might I draw your attention to these two threads right here on the duolingo forums, which I and another user have organised for French practice?
I highly recommend listening to french music and looking up the lyrics because it shows you how french people really talk (which is fairly different from the way we learn on duo and in school) as well as news/tv programs. There exists a program called "News in Slow French" for people who are learning and it has beginner and intermediate news. Listening and speaking practice is the best to improve your language skills as well as the way you think (if you can think in the language, your ability to use it gets exponentially better). Those were mostly listening tips but I just like singing the songs in the car to get my pronunciation going.
Fortnite, play fortnite and you will meet french people, sometimes they are bad people, but sometimes they are good ;)
Ehhhhh, a bot can't give you proper feedback, and it's own grammar / responses are just as likely to be incorrect
What is you native language ? If it's English you're lucky, many French people search an English speaking partner.
you could get online textbooks or explore more check online. you could als watch videos for french
i play a mobile named werewolf online where you have to guess who is a werewolf by chatting with other people, you can change the language to french, in my case i changed the language to german and i learned a lot of new words used in common conversations
Check the "more" tab for Events near you. Mine shows a discussion group at a restaurant every Wednesday evening. I've been thinking about taking my daughter to it, since she has been studying French at a novice level and would benefit from some conversational immersion. Bonne chance!
