Max Fluency?

I finished my french tree yesterday, did it fully golden today but still my fluency is 55% instead of the max 60%. Does the fluency also depend on my level ? If not, will practicing further increase it ? And one more thing, my word count is now 2402.

Yes, further work will increase your fluency score. The program does not end when you complete the tree. I have 42000 xp and am still experiencing new material and vocabulary. I am now rated at 63% and have remained the same for quite some time. I have heard some people have been rated a bit higher. The tree will fade if you do not practice. I select "strengthen skills" when I practice and the program decides what I should work on.

On the duolingo helppage above it was given that the max fluency is between 50-60. But now based on your reply , is it possible to achieve even higher levels i.e. , maybe even 75% by practicing . Have you heard of any such cases or is it just a bug ?

I have heard people say they have been in the high 60's. I am not really sure how well it translates into ability to speak. One thing I look at is the word list section. I am now at 2874 and growing. I can now read some newspapers in Montreal and can communicate on a basic level. If you get to a point where you feel you need to hear more, I suggest watching some french programs and movies with subtitles. There are also apps like "Hello Talk" where you can match up with a native speaker who is learning English. You can connect through texting as well as voice messaging. I am just starting but others have told me that it has helped them become pretty fluent and they are now living in Montreal and working in French.

Thought I would give you an update. Today I reached 64% and have 2884 words. I still see new material appear. Also, I mentioned watching french films/TV. I find using closed caption so I see french written as the subtitles. I tried English subtitles and found it difficult to see English while hearing French. Hellotalk

Thought I would give you another update. I still work one or two hours each day and now have 68%. New vocab and sentences are being introduced. I really feel much more confident and capable with each passing week.

Hi, this is the French forum, for getting help with French grammar, vocabulary, resources, etc. Could you please edit your original post and use the drop-down list at top left to change the topic from "French" to "Troubleshooting"? That way it won't clutter up the Frnech forum, and the answers you get might help others who look in Troubleshooting with the same question. Thanks!
