Consistency is important!! I try to study every day, and the morning works best for me. If I don't have time for my usual amount of studying, I at least look at the French a little bit. I work one lesson at a time until I feel comfortable, and then I move on. It took me about three years to complete all the Premium Level 1 lessons, but I'm sure others can do it faster than that, even much faster.

Well. For those with busy lives, here is a rule: One lesson per day. I think that one lesson per day is fast even for a busy adult with work and family obligations. Well, look at how many lessons each level has and the Travelogue.
Premium: 97 lessons
Premium Plus: 67 lessons
Platinum: 67 lessons
Travelogue: 40 lessons
If the learning speed is one lesson per day, it takes 97+67+67+40=271 days to complete all the lessons here. If you say that you take 1 solar year=365.2425 days, 365.2425-271 days will equal to 94.2425 days. When I complete lessons, it takes one hour for me, and about 10 minutes to write a good forum opinion. You can use the rest of the free days to write your opinions in French to practice your typing skills if you want.
So sometimes my formula may be screwed for some people as they may get the benchmark tests all right by mostly guessing. Montagne is mountain, because mont is mount in french and mount is short for mountain. I think sometimes if you're very smart you might take a whole level in 5 days like the LEARN FRENCH WITH VINCENT channel. If you don't know what the levels are to the European Framework of Languages, here is a translation here. The brackets indicates what skills are required to achieve the EFL's levels.
Level 1: A1-A2 (A1: Good introduction about yourself. A2: Everyday conversations)
Level 2: B1-B2 (B1: Independent ideas for life hacks. B2: Long opinions about current events)
Level 3: C1-C2 (C1: GCSE level foreign language fluency. C2: Native language mastery)
Trivia: I took 15 minutes to write a full opinion. 10 mins= good opinion and 15 mins=full opinion.
Bonne chance! Au revoir!
