The steps you have taken so far are a good start! Try French conversation groups (Alliance Française offers them i.e.) or you can offer English conversation in exchange for French conversation in your home town (1:1). Of course you can take as many lessons as you want but the ultimate learning experience is immersing yourself in the country and culture. Eventually you want to take either summer classes in France (French Canada would also be an option ...) or participate in an exchange program. To give you an idea: In order to become fluent in both French and Portuguese after High School I spent a year in France attending a language school, I also spent a semester abroad in Brazil attending a University program and in between I took summer classes in Portugal. There are many options, it does not have to be expensive, just research a bit (an au pair program is also an option). Good luck!
