Yesterday, 14 January 2020, I got my result for the French exam DELF, level B2, and I managed to pass it with the score 81 out of 100. I am very pleased about this result which will allow me to continue my higher studies in France. In this way, I want to thank Duolingo for the help. Probably there will be people who will say that Duolingo helps you just to reach a beginner level, A1, maximum A2 and probably I would not have achieved it without YouTube videos, reading the local press or talking with French natives online, but Duolingo helped to keep a daily learning routine of 15-20 minutes and to discover how beautiful learning a language is. So, THANK YOU Duolingo for this wonderful product and I hope you will continue to do this amazing job in the years to come. Next stop: level C2.

I'm exactly the same, slowly but surely I think is the way to go! I'm about 2 years into learning the language on duolingo (but my 5th year of learning it in school), all the best for your journey!

I'm SOO HAPPY for you! :) Congrats on getting to the level you have! I love working with native teachers in the language I'm learning which is why I'm going on italki soon. :) I too want to take french to "fluency" especially after having learned it for 8 years already. I wish you all the BEST going forward in your studies! :) This is just the beginning....and HEEERe's to the beginning! :) Bonne chance!

Félicitations!!! That is a great result. For how long have you studied french?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/D3XT3RY0NuT

Merci beaucoup ! I think I started to study French 3.5 years ago, but my streak shows the period of serious studying. :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DustyRicke

You are welcome!

I know people meme this app and some polyglots swear against it , but it's working for me. I use it for sentance structure along side YouTube videos and anki. I find it very useful but you will need another way to just build up a list of words that are not covered here.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KrystalnSe

I love duolingo i originally started using it because i find other peoples languages sound funny and i was so depressed and everytime i would practice i would laugh and i was really happy about finding a way to laigh in such a sad situation. The government where I live in Regina Saskatchewan is really corrupt and they made my life a living hell and duolingo gave me something to look forward to so thank you

Bravo! Congrats with the exam! Enhorabuena!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GoharShouk

Good on you man! Can you please share what youtube videos you used? I want to appear for the exams soon too!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/D3XT3RY0NuT

I checked a few vloggers who live in France, I watched football highlights for Ligue 1, watched several science, politics and history channels (Le Monde, Figaro, ARTE) and pretty much everything I liked. At the beginning, I even watched kids stories because they tend to use a simpler vocabulary and grammar. Good luck with your exams!

    Congratulations! Language learning requires that you don't give up. Kudos to you for sticking with it.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ToonyTelegram

    Congrats! It's awesome to see how little habits such as 15-20 minutes a day can help you learn a whole language!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/D3XT3RY0NuT

    Thank you! It is like a fairy story where you get super powers. :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/stupefaite

    Felicitations! Je suis heureuse pour toi !


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/D3XT3RY0NuT

    Merci beaucoup !


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nyagret

    Are you able to understand what speakers of your target language say to you? That seems like the weak link in Duolingo.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/D3XT3RY0NuT

    Yes, I am. If the French or English speaker speaks too fast, I can politely ask him/her to slow down a bit his/her speaking speed.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nyagret

    Well you're doing great then. That's the hardest part about conversing in the other language.
