STOP USING DUOLINGO FOR FRENCH if you are beyond the beginner level – my 2 reasons why.

If you watch my videos, you’re beyond the beginner stages. Maybe you agree that you’re feeling the limitations of Duolingo, or you are still using it. In either case, here are my reasons why you should stop using Duolingo or at least why you should give more priority to other resources.

Of course, there is no perfect tool and the content in this video is just my opinion!

I really want to know if you agree or disagree with me so let me know in the comments!

I know that from personal experience, Duolingo was good when I had no clue what I was doing, but now that I know better ways to learn a language EFFICIENTLY, Duolingo just no longer cuts the mustard (is no longer a good enough tool).

See below in this description for other tools and resources I recommend.
