Can't go any further?
Sorry, I don't know what the little icon on the very bottom of the page represents, but I've done all the modules in the French Duolingo and can't go any further. Supposedly I'm at 64% fluency. Am I overlooking some step?
The little icon means you have completed the course - congratulations!!
Duolingo will never make you fluent; it only teaches around 2000 words. You can
- Review and practice and make all your skills golden
- Do the "English for French speakers" course
- Learn another language from French, i.e. Spanish for French speakers - Strike out on your own and watch movies, read books, learn songs, find language exchange partners...
Saying the fluency metre is meaningless would be overselling it. Ignore it.
No amount of Duolingoing will make you fluent (in the real sense of the word). Since you have finished the course, I would recommend branching out. Read books and articles, watch tv and YouTube, listen to music and podcasts, expand your vocabulary at memrise, practice your writing at Lang-8, visit French forums, get a Skype/pen pal, attend meetings, talk to natives etc.
