First 50 days of French

I know it's no huge achievement. But, I feel great that I discovered Duolingo and I used fifty days of lockdown to learn French. Still a long way to go, though.

Congrats! Although the quarantine has been something negative, Duolingo users have taken the opportunity to learn without problems! Keep on learning and progressing with French! It is such a great language!

French is amazing!


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

Felicitations; c'est extraordinaire! Bon courage!


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

Merci beaucoup!

Bonjour Sushan, Félicitations pour les 50 jours d'affilée. C'est très bien d'apprendre un peu tous les jours car cela donne une motivation encore plus forte. Bonne continuation. Patrick de Nice ( France )

Bonjour Patrick! Merci beaucoup pour ton appréciation.

Reaching level 19 in 50 days is a pretty big achievement!


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

I don't know how the levels work. I was wondering what the 19 was. And, I just noticed, you're level 5 in High Valyrian! Do you learn dragon commands too?


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

The level is based on the XP you got so far for that language -- about 10-15 XP per round. See duome.eu for more details.
As for dragons, I'm still looking for the dragon eggs; was hoping to find one for easter, but all that came out of the one I found was a chocolate bunny. Will keep trying.

that's a lot of languages your learning


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

Haha! Bon chance!

Good job.. are you new to french. It's a really hard language at first.


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

I took French lessons some 15 years ago. But, I had forgotten most of it for want of practice. So, it's not terribly hard for me.

Mais, je suis d'accord avec toi. Ce n'est pas facile. Je vais souvent au Canada, et je peux utiliser ca la-bas.


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

That's such a great thing to do during fifty days of lock down! Keep it up!


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

Thanks! Will do!


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

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

I ve done 50 in a row of German Well done


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

Nice! Well done.


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

Who was it that gave me a lingot? (I will follow that person)


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

unless I am allready following him (or she) !!!


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

I did. Because they're sort of the replacement of likes.

Here's another. :-D


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

ok thanks How many lingots do you have?


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

I don't even know why I have more and you have less. I haven't done much to get them.


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

Did you come in the top 3 every time?


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

Yes. I did finish top 3 five weeks in a row. That must be how I go très très riche! ;-D


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

Like 650 or something. I don't know what else to use them for other than to wager them and get more lingots.


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

That's a lot I was proud of myself but it s nothing compared to you


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

Good job keep that up


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

Nice job! I am very happy to hear that you are happy and I think you should treat it as if it is a huugge achievement because it is a huuuge achievement! Do you like Duolingo?


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

Thank you! Yes. I love Duolingo so far.


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

Formidable! Here is to fifty more days towards fluency in French. Bonne nuit!


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

Bon courage à toi ! ;)

Do not hesitate to watch France24 TV on live https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yN20t84GCPE

Merci! Et merci pour ton recommandation! Je vais le voir.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/kathleenb1989

Well done! :-)


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

I've been watching an episode a day of this amazing French language learning comedy series on YouTube called EXTRA. The actors speak clearly in simple language to help improve your listening comprehension. You can turn on French subtitles to help understand even better. Link below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EaNqp4FXh-s&list=PLhAxKCm7GPvi1fmbLUbhYhQcLGTZ2Fqwq

It's helping me a lot. And, it's pretty good fun to watch!


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

Antoine, we are neck and neck. Let's keep our streaks up.

A wager perhaps? First one to slip up pays the other in lingots equal to the number of days? The stakes go up with every passing day. How does it sound?


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

I don't know. When I go back to work I stop doing it but if I win yes


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

otherwise the more point per month wins


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

I'm beating you allready


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

Are these your first 55 days on Duolingo? Or 55 days on the present streak?

In my case it is the first 55 days ever.


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

Ok so the more XP (in one language of choice) wins 20 lingots from the other?


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

Although, there are some really easy ways to rack up XP.


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

I’m already back at work. But, I've stepped up my French because I’m really enjoying learning it.


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

You started chinese (it's hard)


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

I started Chinese just for a change of flavour from my rigorous French regimen. It is hard. So, I decided to conserve bandwidth for French for now.


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

Please do not use Plus


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

What's wrong with it? I got upgraded for a week because of referral.
