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.

Congratulations. Learning a language is a beautiful thing, you are quite right! Bon chance pour tus estudies en France. Sorry for the mistakes, I learnt French a long time ago...


Thank you very much! And "Bonne chance pour tes études en France".


I want to do the same thing for german. Hope that i can get there one day! This really motevates me to keep learning!


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!


Thank you! That's very sweet!


Congratulations passing the DELF is a HUGE accomplishment it's going to help you a lot in the future and stay with you forever. Hope you do great in your next test.


Thank you very much for your kind words!


Congrats! No better exercise than to speak to people directly


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


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


This is great and a huge accomplishment. We are all happy for you. It's the main purpose of this forum to teach us in our desired language. Congratulations for passing the DELF and we are hopping that you will pass the next test that you will take.


Thank you very much!


Good luck and happy learning. :)


Thank you very much!


Thanks for coming back to give us an update! It's encouraging!


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.


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


Great news! Good luck with your education.


Thank you for sharing your experience and congratulations


You are welcome!




Thank you very much!


Bravo! Congrats with the exam! Enhorabuena!


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


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!




Congrats!!!! Feels good doesn't it? Good luck in your next studies :)


Thank you! It feels really good!

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


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


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


    Felicitations! Je suis heureuse pour toi !


    Merci beaucoup !


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


    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.


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




    Congratulations on your achievement.


    Bien joué! :)


    Check out my post on how to make Duolingo posting even better! (You can change the color of your text.



    Félicitations ;)


    beside duolingo I use youtube videos foe learning Hebrew. and i think that duolingo and invonative languages are the best 2 free programs to learn a new language


    Woah!! Passing DELF is a big achievement! Duolingo can be a huge helper!
