Golden Tree

Day 350, 58% and all is golden. Almost a year in the making, but it is nice to see after never having touched the German language before finding Duo. Thanks Duo for making something to assist in learning a foreign language!

Europeans test their knowledge of a foreign language based on Common European framework of reference for language. Here the link of it in Wikipedia https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_European_Framework_of_Reference_for_Languages

I would say B1 by what the chart describes. I also take a private lesson weekly. I read quite a few books in German and listen to music in German while I'm driving. I'm unsure what I would be if I was only using Duo.

What books did you/do you read. I have some German Children's books, but even those are difficult for me to understand completely. I have about half my tree done so far.

I suggest to start with cartoons for young children such as Peppa pig or a little bit more difficult curious George!

I'm also on level 23, but my fluency is only 43% although I do several (average 10) lessons daily with little difficulty and maintain the tree all golden. The only thing I can figure out is that when I have to speak, I sound like Andy Griffith doing Romeo and Juliet in his hillbilly comedy routine, haha.

I'm not sure how it determines the fluency %. I specifically went through over the past 2 weeks and redid every lesson making sure that every answer was correct whether speaking, listening or typing. The highest I've gotten is the 58% now. I figured if I answered them all correctly that I would have gotten higher than that... Who knows...

Yeah, I think the fluency is a little wonky. I'm on level 16 and had 45% yesterday. I've completed additional lessons today and kept my tree green, and it went down. I don't really struggle with a lot of the older words and phrases, and I feel I've been getting better at recognising the roots of words and making correct guesses on new words. Not sure why it went down.

I'm at 50% and on level 13. Those two values don't really correlate. I have some previous knowledge of German so I don't need to repeat as much which is why I'm not so very high level (I just passed the second to last checkpoint, for reference).

Can someone say how can I stop decaying Abstract Objects 2,3,4, Business 2 and Politics which constantly got three bars even though I strengthen them to gold day before. My whole tree is golden but I also see that in Words tab I have overdue words which are never practiced with strengthen option.
