I am thinking of completing Pimsleur and Assimil with ease before I dive into native materials and practice with people in person and online. But other than the resources I listed, I cannot say I know the optimal plan to achieve B2.
Try searching the forum a bit. There have been lots and lots of posts about this.
You might be especially interested in posts by PeterMollenburg, emk, Skynet, or others from the French learning group.https://forum.language-learners.org/vie ... =26&t=1575
Truth be told, I have posted a list of my favourite resources so many times I can't even procrastinate like this anymore
So, I'll leave it to others or your searching, no offence meant.
Kevin, our fellow member smallwhite uses what I think is a very easy to adopt, practical, straighforward approach. She doesn’t keep a log but if you put her name in the search function and the terms “chinesepod” and “method” you will get half a dozen posts that detail her approach.
Of course here are many members that have much to offer - and I think it’s a good idea to look around the forum - but you need to devote lots of time to actually learning french!
