Hello everyone, I just started learning Russian and Spanish on Duolingo and I have to say the site is amazing. I have a question though: why are the fluency percentages showing for for example Spanish, Swedish, and French, but not for Russian? It is nice to see and also motivational for me :)

Actually, this counter is just a piece of garbage, which works in an absolutely unknown way. There were rumors that it's gonna be completely removed from the site.

It's only left in several courses and will never appear in the new ones.

I noticed the app on Android (running Marshmallow) has the percentage for Russian now. It doesn't move though. Also, I think fluency goes down if you make wrong answers on some of the lessons. The more "correct" streaks you make, fluency goes up as it thinks you're a native speaker not getting any wrong. That's just my theory. It's encouraging for me. I just really want a Words and Immersion tab now. Those are 200% more useful than knowing your "fluency".

While I'm sure it could be improved, I think it does add another way of motivating you to advance and refresh your skills.

I have an achievement called "Apprentice - Achieve 10% fluency in a language" and fluency is not shown anywhere. I am running duolingo on my mobile mainly (Android Nougat) and on the web page. On both it is not showing your fluency at all, it is not existing. That means I will never fill in all achievements because of fluency. Why are there these discrepancies? Very odd...
