How hard is basic supposed to be?
I tried to finish first basic lesson ten times without cheating (using google translator and so), but I'm not able to finish it. How long should it take to get through the first basic lesson? Or am I expected to cheat?
I don't think it's supposed to be very difficult, but if you're not familiar with any foreign languages or if English isn't your first language and you're learning from English, it could be. I see that you're learning French. Make sure that you understand the basics of verb conjugation and gendered nouns (read the tips section). If there are other specific things that you don't understand, try looking at the discussions of the questions you get wrong, or posting a topic about what's confusing you, and I'm sure someone will be happy to help.
