Duolingo is the most popular way to learn languages in the world. Best of all, it's 100% free!

I finally finished my French tree after a long time of trying. I am starting Basic French at my university in the fall and am planning on doing a curricular sequence in French and Francophone Literature and Culture as well. Hopefully, I'll get to see exactly how the Duolingo experience reflects upon my class performance. Merci Duolingo!

Some notes: I finished the tree, but I am still unclear regarding certain verbs conjugations and forms. I would like for Duolingo to add some Tips and Notes, as in German, that explain key aspects of each verb form (how they're used, why, when, how to "do them", etc.) I'd also like more practice so that my vocabulary and my skills improve.

Lastly, can somebody recommend me what to do now in order to keep learning French? I've already "liked" some French newspapers on Facebook (haha) and I've started to see some French movies.

Bonne nuit et merci à tous!

I mostly watch movies and series in my target language to keep them Fresh, watch vloggers on Youtube, and the immersion tab is a good way to practice too. Other less common methods are lang-8 and WeSpeke, but they get the job done.

Congratulations! And as for the conjugations you'll start to be able to get them right after you practice for a while. I know I still get the imparfait, one word future tense and the conditional mixed up because they sound similar and the conditional has the imparfait endings but you don't take anything off the word.

Congratulations!

A very obvious choice is visiting Canada/France and using your French in real situations. Maybe you could start (this may be a horrible idea, just putting it out in the open) changing the languages on websites that you read to French to really test yourself. There is another website -I am not aware if it costs any money - called Babbel that teaches French as well. I think Duolingo is better, but some people swear to Babbel.

Hopefully this helped :-D

Babbel is also a great tool, the only reason it is not as popular as Duolingo is because it isn't free. I'd say that if they were both free the versus would be: more thorough (Duolingo) vs. More vocabulary (Babbel).
