What to expect
I love the site, and have been moving along in French starting at having an almost 0 French vocabulary I am now at level 5 and building up my vocab and understanding. My question is what are some realistic expectations to have after I have finished the tree? What will I be able to do. Will I be able to do the translations in the immersion? It is my understanding that translating is a key component of this website. I understand that everyone is different, but I am just looking for generalities.
Yes, you'll be able to do translations in Immersion. You'll have all the necessary grammar for it, and the unknown words are easy to look up in the popup translations or in the dictionary. The more you read (or translate), the more words you'll add to your vocabulary.
