LinkedIn Percentage Question
Hello! If I get to 100% in a language, and then add it to my LinkedIn profile, will it stay at 100% on the profile, or will it decline as it does on Duolingo if you don't practice for awhile?
Thanks in advance
First of all, I'm not sure it's possible to raise the fluency indicator to 100%. Unless it's been changed recently I think most of the languages cap at some random percentage that's quite below 100. Before the German tree was updated I was just before the end and had everything gold and yet I was still only at only around 50%.
Secondly, if you link it to your LinkedIn profile it wont show any percentage but rather something like "Duolingo German Fluency: Advanced (Estimated)". That was what came up when I linked it at about 48% 'fluency', which is a huge overstatement for me in any case.
Lastly, I believe it doesn't degrade if you stop practising on duolingo. Once you have linked it it'll stay on the same level.
It's not possible to get to 100% fluency. Judging by what other people have reported, the possible fluency level tops out at somewhere between, say 55% and 65%, depending on the language.
You are correct in that it doesn't get up to 100% in any tree -- the only 100% score one can get from Duo is in English through the testing center (that's where I got my nifty little profile pic - I took the free test for giggles this morning). Through the Duolingo language tree system itself the highest one can get is low-mid 60%
