  5. Finished my German tree! :)

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?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/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.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HortensiaDean

How many words have you learnt?


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

All of them. 1941 Words


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ytide

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


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ScottInBrooklyn

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.


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

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


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/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.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/.KonoDioDa.

{@style=color: red}58%


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/shosta_k

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.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/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.

{@style=color:lime} OK

Wild - I'm level 18 and still haven't even reached the last checkpoint.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/heschmat

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


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/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.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mattenhall

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 :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/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.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/.KonoDioDa.

Well, I hope you finish it soon:)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TiimedArts

I wonder if it works


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Teacuppy

Herzliche Glückwünsche :)

      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.
