It seems I can click on a word to see the translation but there is no full sentence translation, is there? Without it, it's hard to learn idioms and expressions.

RE: What happens at the end of a course?
@carlosquintanillaa That's a lot of work you put into it. Where do you want to go with this if speaking is not what you're interested? Last year when I was studying with Duo, I didn't care about speaking either, but then I noticed that my listening comprehension didn't improve. I realized I needed real world interaction for my brain to react quickly to verbal communication.
I recently took lessons on verbling and italki. I like both but italki is cheaper. We're talking about $6/hour cheap. Since you can afford to pay Babbel, I would suggest you pay for italki. I still can't speak much but after a month, I don't feel like a babbling idiot anymore. Now I seek out other language partners so I can speak and don't have to pay. My advice is for a month or two, pay $6-$8 a day to speak with a french tutor/teacher for an hour (different teachers each day). That's $30-$40/week = $120-$160/month. So the total cost may not be much.
Personally I have teachers for conversations and teachers specifically for pronunciation, liaisons and enchaînements (I'm already strong on grammar and vocabulary). Good luck!
