a question about percentage

[deactivated user]

    I am level 12 in English, and now I am 70% in it. is that high or what ?

    In my opinion, I would say that's pretty high. Though, the fluency meter is pretty pointless and inaccurate, so I'm not sure if it really matters, as long as you feel you are learning and retaining the information at your specified level.


    The fluency percentage is very inaccurate. Please read this thread (there are many ...) https://www.duolingo.com/comment/24828512

      oh, that. but as you know, I am a person that believes everything about Duolingo very much.


      Yes...and you are doing great. :)


      I've just achieved level 12 in English but my fluency is only 45%. So yes, 70% is pretty high.

        thanks ! :)


        On my French to English tree, I am at 69% fluency, which seems a bit low as I am a native English speaker. I am very familiar with the exercises and usually answer quickly and correctly. On the other hand, my English to French tree has me at 66% which is my highest ever in over 4 years of Duolingo. I don't know that the fluency meter is particularly accurate, but I have seen it increase with my practicing. 70% is higher than anything that I have seen.
