I finished my French tree

It took me more than a year to finish my tree, but now I finally have my beautiful golden owl to accompany the trophies from German and Swedish. To put my newly learned skills to good use, I plan to read some French novels during the summer starting with Le Petit Prince and Candide. If that goes well, I will try something a bit more demanding: I already have a copy of Stendhal's Le rouge et le noir. My ultimate goal, however, is to read À la recherche du temps perdu by Proust next Christmas. And then there is the Italian tree that needs to be completed.

I hope you all have a great summer. :)

J'aime »Le Petit Prince« et je veux lire ça aussi. :) (After I finished my tree, too, which is still going to take a while....)

Congratulations! Le Petit Prince is a very good book, and I recommend you to watch the spectacle as well! You can search for it online on YouTube! It's a very touching story and it's a good way to practice your listening skills. I hope to master my french skills and read a few novels myself. I was a bit unsure of which to start with, but those that you are going to read sound quite interesting!

passez de bonnes vacances aussi!

Congratulations! My goal is to finish my Italian tree so I can see Italian TV, listen to Italian songs and get the meaning and also read Italian books! When I've finished with Italian I really want to study again my Swedish even though they are in a very bad level right now... Anyway good luck with your French and I hope that you'll end and your Italian tree :)
