Finished my German tree! :)

Really, really great experience for me. I've studied German outside of Duolingo before coming here, so I was prepared... lol. :)

Thanks for bringing me this experience!

I would do a screenshot of my amazing golden owl, but unfortunately, I'm not sure how I can upload it on to a discussion. : )

What is your final "% Fluent" score in German, after finishing the tree?

December 16, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/SamijaH.

I finished my tree as well and my final % is 48. I am having 48% even though my tree is kept completely golden all the time.

How many words have you learnt?

December 17, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/SamijaH.

All of them. 1941 Words

December 17, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/ytide

I wonder why there is no way to rise above 48%? Maybe future updates :D

December 18, 2015

I'm at 49% and I'm not quite done with my tree. I've only got one set of lessons left, but still, I'm over 48%. No clue how or why.

December 18, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/SamijaH.

It is normal. I heared some people had somewhere around 52% but that is highest that I heared about.

December 20, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/multilingue87

I tested my way through the whole French course for fun. I reached 54% in about 10 minutes and it never went up after that.

Interesting - just finished the German tree myself and I am 49% 'fluent' and level 24; took about 2 years to do it. Must be related to frequency not just number of words learnt. I did get to 52% at one stage then obviously deteriorated.

December 21, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/nancypurple32

I finished my tree in 6 months, at level 17, all golden, but only at 37% "fluency." I think its because I do a lot of my practice on the bus, and have frequent typos which the program picks up as mistakes. Really not sure what factors they look at.

It's not how fast you finish, but rather if you can actually use what you've learned. Keep up the good works. :-)

December 16, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/Rejistania

Some people's study habits are radically different. I personally always keep my trees gilded so I am at some freakishly high levels for what little I learnied.

December 16, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/CodyORB

Even though I am level 6 in Irish I only just passed the first checkpoint, because it's a difficult language that needs plenty of practice. But my Spanish tree? It's super easy and I'm around halfway done :)

December 20, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/solopipe

Cos you review and keep your strength bars up . You know more German than someone who races through the tree without ever revisiting a lesson.

      Congratulations! As far as the % fluent, it depends on how you test out. I was stuck at 48-52% for the longest time, and then I took a progress test and got a 4.9/5, if I remember correctly and now my fluency level is 66%, according to the green owl itself.
