    Hey !
    - watch 10min of french news everyday
    - start watching your movies/series in french (settle in french with english subtitles) and try to relate the words you read/hear
    - read a bit of french before sleeping

    Je pense que ça revient au même, et justement quand tu regardes les films avec les sous titres tu peux relater la signification , d'autant plus qu'avec le jeu d'acteur ça aide à peu près à contextualiser :P Tu crois pas :3 ?

    regardant les films ont tendance à améliorer votre vocabulaire sans doute mais encore ils peuvent être très dur à suivre voire avec les sous titres, d'autant plus qu'avec la vitesse parlée par les Français.. que penses tu?

    Je suis d'accord mais justement c'est ça qui est bien ! Moi j'ai appris l'anglais comme ça, au début on est un peu perdus, mais à force on devient de plus en plus à l'aise ^.^ et surtout c'est génial pour entendre les bonnes prononciations :yep:

    I use apps like Duolingo, is there any better ways to learn French?
    - Duolingo as you've said
    - Memrise
    - Mondly
    - Lingvist
    = all good for vocab, if mondly is paid then don't bother but i got it for free so -shrugs-

    As for other things:

    - Listen to French music
    - Try and watch French films with subtitles
    - Try and watch French TV as already suggested.
    - Try and talk/type/write to people in French
    - Try and integrate French into your everyday life e.g. when counting, count in French instead of English.
    - Read French childrens books.
    - Watch YouTube channels that are for French viewers
    - Change your browser, your phone (if you're willing), your websites etc . languages to French
    - Read French newspapers as already said
    - Listen to French radio
    - This is really odd but if you enjoy games like cooking mama, just download that on google playa nd change language to french - you'll learn some ingredient names in french that way xD
    - Set up a blog to help you practice your French if you want; if you use tumblr, there's a #langblr community for such a thing.
    - Ensure you do something about it every day, even if only learning 1/2 more words

    Hope this helps soz if I repeated anything already said.
