So i have reached the bottom of the French skill tree (economics, sports, spiritual), i have mastered all the skills i see on the 'tree'. Does that mean am done?
One thing I have noticed, is I am only 1/3 of the way through is my speaking skills suck while I can read a translate fairly well, is that there are a couple of people here who translate all the time. I notice I am getting better at sentence structure and learning all of those odd ways they put sentences together. When I get to the end, in six months or so, I will keep on translating so I can learn more.
If you are feeling bold, you can join a francophone IRC or forum to put your skills to the test. It's how I learned 'real' English back then.
