Is there a maximum level that you can attain, or can you just keep on going forever as you add points?

After reaching such a high level how would you rate your ability to speak to a native? I'm trying to figure out if this site is really worth using or should i move on to other things after a certain level of proficiency.

Just my 2 cents. Duolingo is awesome, but a long way from immersion. In an attempt to get as close as I can to immersion without leaving the country, I augment Duolingo with the following: I'm listening to Pimsleur audiobooks which complement the Duolingo progressions really well. (However, my neighbors must think I'm insane mumbling in Spanish as I walk my dog). I also use Audible audiobooks and Kindle eBooks that are available in Spanish. Sometimes (e.g. "Journey to the Center of the Earth") they have the same book in both formats so I can listen and read at the same time. I watched the mini-series "Destinos" (See https://learner.org/series/destinos/). YouTube has the "Extra!" sitcom and and many other videos in Spanish. Don't stop there. You can play "Trivia Crack" on iPhone and Android in Spanish. Internet radio (e.g. SiriusXM, Google Play, iTunes, etc) has radio channels in Spanish. Oh, and there are a lot of native speakers where I live, so when I feel brave, I say to shopkeepers, "Habla español? Yo estudio español. Puede ayudarme? Tiene tiempo?" My end goal is to watch "The Time Between" on NetFlix without subtitles. :-D
Buen suerte!

    Duolingo will not make you anywhere close to fluent but it will provide you with enough of a basic understanding of grammar and vocabulary to be able to go on and improve your language through reading, watching tv, etc

    You shouldn't rely just on Duolingo. To really learn your language, you have to actively use what you learnt in context. And do that regularly. See also my post below.

    So true. I see Duolingo as a coach so you don't procastinate about learning a language. It pushes you to do something rather than nothing at all.

    Have you checked out News In Slow Spanish? I think it's pretty great, but it's above my current level. It's a pay site, but I think it's only about $15 per month. My problem has been that there is a huge jump from this level of learning in Duolingo to actual, functional conversation in Spanish or to watching movies in Spanish. News In Slow Spanish is still beyond me (I'm level 10 in duo lingo now) but I think it's a good next step. I like it because you can hear a new story and then listen to it again while reading the text. It's a big jump from here, but seems like another good step between beginner Spanish and immersion.

      Yes, the limited number of lessons will only get you so far, and TV and Radio should help. But if you're already "hooked" on Duolingo, consider using the "Immersion" portion of the site.

      Not sure how many people know this, but Duolingo was inverted while searching for a system that will motivate already bilingual people to translate the Internet content (like Wikipedia) to other languages without a pay. That's why using Duolino is free. I started using Duolingo after watching this TED video. Amazing.

        Just my two cents, but to really make the most of duolingo, you have to actively use what you learnt in context. And do that regularly.

        For example, read a newspaper article (in your foreign language), listen to music, watch a movie or TV show, talk with actual people. The key here is regular practice, better to read one article a day (tip: read aloud) then read the whole newspaper on Monday and stop learning for the rest of the week.

        And I really like the suggestion of using the foreign language you just learnt as the base language. I wonder if that helps the brain to make the right connections?

        3 years ago

        https://www.duolingo.com/Sabrina453587

        it kind of helps. When i just started learning English, i would talk to myself in the mirror, or just by being alone in the house, or even with my cats. As stupidly as it sounds, it truly helps. I even remember starting to watch Youtube videos, and then eventually mimic some guests or youtubers, that has helped as well. Practice is the key.

        I hit it today too! How weird, all this discussion of lowering points earned for reviewing strong skills and then they add a new level, if only in a test. I took the screen shot to keep it as a real award. Hehe

        Hey, now you can start revising through a second language! So, you're level twenty five (or twenty six) in one, why not use that language to learn another? That way you revise not just the one you finished the tree on, but you build up another language. And it would be a great way to train your brain not to think in English in your target languages.

        I'm planning on doing that with German and French when I have leveled up to them. (Wish there was a way for folks to show what they are doing, but the option is there, and I think it's pretty stellar.)

        Well, I am also doing German as well (level 18 so far), but the point I was trying to get at was that I was using Duolingo to build up my Spanish, and now I've hit the ceiling with Duo. I wasn't using Duolingo as an end in itself, but as a tool to achieve a particular end.

        Ah, I see. Sorry I misunderstood.

        Yes, it's a shame - Duolingo offer a free course that gets you up to the equivalent of a first year at university, from what I've read. It would be great if, in future, they could offer more, but I don't know how practical that is given they are doing it for free. I have no idea how they fund themselves!

        I am still planning on doing a revision tree in dual foreign languages at some point, to cement my fluency and stop me thinking in English. Though I hope to 'test out' on the lower levels.

        I don't suppose anyone knows if Duolingo are planning further levels?

        When I notice a problem while answering the question, at the bottom you have a button to report a problem and you can explain what the problem is. So you have to do it while answering question (which obviously will take some time during the process), but they do make corrections and Duolingo improves.

        I am not so sure about mistakes, but certainly there is a Euro slant to the language and vocabulary that Canadians would not be familiar with. Since Duolingo does a Euro and a North/South American version of Spanish, I wish they would do a Euro and a "Canadien" version of French. Perhaps a "small course" on the different patois from Cajun to Haitian, to Caribbean would also be a nice adjunct to the course. Most of us colonials are more likely to be exposed to Quebec culture through television and travel than we are to the Euro/ France culture, so I see a Quebec french to be a benefit to the Duolingo language programme.
        However, Euro-vocabulary aside, I am much improved in my grammar and spelling as a result of using Duolingo.

        Not sure you are right about there being two versions of Spanish on Duo - I have only seen what is faintly Central American Spanish labelled with a Spanish flag. If you learn to order a sandwich with Duolingo, you won't do very well trying to get one on in Madrid (unless the person attending you happens to be from Mexico).

        The problem here is 'where do you stop' - for instance your suggestion of a "small course" on different patois. I speak decent French, learnt in France, so can get by with Québécois, but trying to understand Haitian French is a different animal (spoken on a linguistic range depending on the speaker and who they are talking to - and that's just a little island). An American will hit similar problems trying to understand some varieties of English spoken in England, eg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a55iAwMXylo

        Not sure Duo is the place to get too diverse on the varieties of languages as it's really for getting a basic foundation, not a full solution. Increasing the content of courses would probably have more value for language learners. At the moment they weigh in at around 3000 words, bumping that to 5000 would get close to operational vocabulary.

Change that and you will have a page of languages from you can learn from that language. It is a little bit of a pain if you want to switch back and forth but once you get it down it isn't too bad.

          Start translating (see the Immersion tab) as soon as you feel comfortable. Not only does it reward you faster with points, it also helps you learn the language faster. You can score 200 points or more from one document if you're patient. (I wish I discovered this earlier because I spent a year earning points the slow way.) And it's fun!

          Hi. This is my first Duolingo post.

          I recommend you don´t give too much importance to the shield and the percentage inside. I am a Spanish native speaker and after years of study, practice, an MBA from Arizona State University, and most importantly, reading a lot of books in English, I consider myself fluent.

          I have seen Duolingo in action since my wife started using it to learn English 6 months ago (she is at 34%).

          Yesterday, I decided to see how it would work for me and started working with it, going directly to the tests where available. I got over 1,000 points in about 45 minutes and scored 59% (considering a few missing accents in the Spanish translations, a couple typos -I did it using my iPhone-, and a couple of silly mistakes by trying to do it as fast as I could).

          Today I continued with some additional exercises and no mistakes, and the percentage went down to 58%. Suddenly I got to the end of the tree and got my golden owl.

          So these are my $0.02: Don´t worry too much about the percentage. If you are 50%+ you should have a very good level to immerse yourself in book reading or TV watching. Reading has the advantage that you can make a pause and look up any word you find in the dictionary (I use the Merriam-Webster iPhone App). I just finished reading "The Adventure of English" by Melvyn Bragg, and I had to use it quite a few times.

          In a few months, the real progress will be evident after several books have been through your nightstand (and you have also been through them).

            Thanks for your comment. I absolutely agree. I am very comfortable in French, I have spoken nothing but French for a year 12 years ago and it's coming back thanks to Duolingo. I finished my course with level 18. I am much more used to speaking French than writing it. I recommend practicing as soon as rising and right before sleeping to imprint it more into the subconscious. Cheers.

Took Spanish in high school for two years and always had fragmented knowledge over the years. Duolingo is a good refresher and have also started watching numerous Spanish language news service on YouTube and read online journals to push my knowledge further. I have Spanish sounding name which makes things worse for me, as I am actual an Indo-Portuguese Canadian LOL. Everyone presumes I speak Spanish. I think daily i try to think in Spanish and message my friends around the world in Spanish to get practice. Or call them up and try to blend in a bit of Spanish. And i take no offense to correction, they help me out. Golden Owl. Geez i learn something new each day. I hope to get the covetted Golden Owl, hopefully before than i have a decent command over the language.

            It seems i've completed Spanish at level 11, so how do people get up to level 25?

            Same here: I just completed the Spanish tree and am just at level 11, and 55% fluency. How DO people get to 25? Is it all translations from here on?

            How did you get 55% fluency? I have only 45% and I'm past you.

            I reached level 25 in French and 64% fluency about 6 months ago and there is no level above that, but still practising Duolingo every day and finding that new words and phrases are constantly added. Now I try other Apps on my iPad for Immersion. I understand that you can do translations on Duolingo to earn more points if you wish.

            Try watching films in your new language. It will get you to a point of fluency you never imagined! (Of course, speaking with native speakers is also a great challenge due to the speed at which they speak)

            Can I ask something also: if you're achieving 700+ XP per day, in how many days would you reach level 25? (e.g. three weeks, two months, nine years, that kind of thing)

            Of course, it would be awesome to reach the highest level asap but would the vocabularies, etc really sink in the long-term memory with such a pace?

            I think, seeing as (at least until high school started back up) I was earning 700XP+, if I continue to do so even after I reach level 25, it should still stick? after all, gotta keep those memory bars up :)

            can the percentage of speaking in Spanish reach 100% fluently

            I doubt it. And even if it did, it wouldn't mean anything. It estimates fluency by how much work you've done in the language, not by competency. I found this out because I didn't think my fluency percentage was correct for French, so I started a module that I am 100% fluent in (Spanish). It says I'm 53% fluent in Spanish. The only way for me to increase its estimation of my fluency would be for me to spend more time "practicing my skills." This is, of course, useless and meaningless because I can't get any more fluent in Spanish than I already am.

            You have to go back and strengthen your vocabulary and essentially go back and start over ....I skipped over the first few levels . I'm taking french and I got the same "trophy" at level 15. I'm now at level 16.

            The levels depend on points achieved. The higher the level, the harder it is to get to the next one. I'm on level 22 in Spanish with still over 1,000 points to get to level 23, which started at needing about 3,000, from what I remember.

            i recomend that on every languaje youre learning dont rely only only on Duolingo even if its as good as it is, ry to make post-its with the name of things and stick them arround the house so you remember the way its writen every time you see certain objects. Visits may think you are cazy but you will know how to say crazy in many languajes hahaha

            P.D. and yes for some reason level 25 is the maximun level on display, maybe Duolingo is teaching us to de humble ;-)
