Fluency percentages

I've completed 5 skills and apparently I'm 14% fluent already :). What's the highest percentage in Danish? Is it the same as other courses?

The fluency bar is not accurate at all. Not to be so negative but you're probably .005% fluent, if fluency is something you can measure. You can usually get to 50%-65% after a while.

I'm supposed to be 44% fluent, and I'm in Denmark and I can't understand a single person.

OK. I will try to salvage something positive about the fluency percentages. As others observe, the fluency percents mean about nothing about how close you are to being fluent. And there percents are wildly exaggerated. However, relative to your own previous scores they are interesting. The fluency percents do show me something about how much I am learning--for forgetting--relative to my own previous work.

I have been stuck at a 67% ceiling for months (on the Duolingo scale). I figured this must be the upper limit for this language, but today I hit 68%. I have completed 65/70 skills at this point, so it's clear that one cannot achieve 100% in the Danish from English course.
