The Stories ou raconter des histoires

I’ve been taking French lessons with Duolingo for about 7 months. J’apprends un peu de français et m’aider un mon voyage à Paris en mars. I hope I wrote that ok? Love your stories but I do have a suggestion maybe you could create an optional short quiz at the end of the stories to see what we learned. Anyway, keep them coming! J’aime le raconter de histoires qu’il prépare pour nous.❤️
