Just wanted to pop in and say I am super impressed with the learning system here and the lessons for French. I'd been putting off learning French due to the conjugations, but this is really well done.
I'm really loving the way the course is set up so that I learn various verbs and tenses and conjugations in the context of sentences and phrases instead of in tables of words and pronouns. It's allowed me the freedom to learn without feeling the need to memorize frantically. I need practice that doesn't focus on the hard stuff (coughgrammarcough) but allows me to learn naturally, by picking up rules along the way.
I'm also really pleased with the practice system which allows me to go back over previously learned stuff in new ways.
I'm not terribly far in the course but most language courses I end up dropping after the first three days and I've almost finished my first week of Duolingo. I'm really loving it and I'd just like to say thanks.
I agree with you fully. This website allows us to learn in some new way for me. You don't need to look at tables and memorize all the rules, when you can here get same phrases all over time till you truly understand how something works. =)
Ah, French is a great language. I think that the patterns are more prominent in the spoken language as opposed to the written one. I might do another video...
