My French Tree Is Completely Gold!
I know it won't last for long, but for today, my French tree is completely golden! Tres genial!
That's great! I think we all know how hard it is to keep your tree gold:) My Norwegian tree is currently gold too!
Congratulations! How much French did you know when you started? And do you feel comfortable speaking and reading French?
I knew absolutely no French. I have used several learning tools, including watching a lot of French movies and television. But I would say Duolingo has been the most helpful. I feel extremely comfortable reading French. As for speaking? Well, there aren't many francophones in my city, so I don't get much opportunity to speak. There are a couple of French restaurants, and I have tried speaking with the owners. My wife and I are traveling to France later this summer, so that will be the big test. Let me put it this way. I am comfortable with making a fool of myself!
How about you? How is your French learning going?
Very nice! I am always curious to see how comfortable people are with their language after starting from scratch and finishing the tree. I hope your trip to France goes well!
My learning is progressing far better than I thought it would have. I would really love to master the language, so I'm taking it slow rather than rushing through. My current plan is to do two new lessons a day, and then do review / timed tests until I hit ~100 xp for that day. So far so good! My goal is to be fluent by the time Duolingo releases the Polish course (fluent enough to learn Polish from English and French simultaneously). We'll see.
cool good job on getting it all gold
do you have any tips and tricks to get a gold tree
Bon courage! I have just a little way to go, and I take each lesson fairly slowly and try to refresh past lessons each day.
I'm full of admiration! I wish you every success in French language. You have to wish me the same :-)
I know you can do it. I'm happy to see you're learning English. What is your native language?
My native language is Polish. For the time being I learn only French on Duolingo. I'll be studding my English later.
Well done! May I ask what the number on your "fluency shield" says? Mine won't go further than 57% and my tree is also completely golden.
Mine is 57 %, and it hasn't budged for awhile. I would like to read some documentation on how Duolingo determines that percentage.
Not 100% on this but I think you need to increase your vocab and grammatical exposure by getting up your translation tiers. Should start pushing up then!
Félicitations pour ta réussite!
I've just completed the French tree but I've never had my fluency go any higher than 59%. I wonder if there may be a maximum limit that can be reached.
Once you learn a new skill, you'll see it become gold-colored. Eventually, the color will go away. It only stays gold if you practice it. So, in order to have your tree completely gold, you have to learn AND practice every skill that Duolingo offers.
