Duolingo Language Certificates?
I once was able to share my estimated fluency level in a language (at the time it was intermediate) on LinkedIn from Duolingo, but I cannot remember how to do this anymore. Does anyone know how to gauge your fluency level from Duolingo and possibly share this information on social media?
Luckily you cannot share Duolingo's progress anymore, because the Fluency% of Duolingo is not based on an official certificated language test.
Since a few months LinkedIn only accepts official certificated language tests
Duolingo's Fluency % is unreliable.
Recently appeared that the Duolingo staff had manipulated this "fluency %" for testing purposes
finishing the course in the App is much easier than in the web version
- you can finish the course without doing any "listen and write" and "read and speak" excercise
- Duolingo cannot guarentee, that you are the one who did all the lessons.
And wombatua wrote another good reason:
.... it shouldn't be put on a networking site. I occasionally hire people, and I'd look on someone who crowed about their linguistic ability by citing Duolingo as a candidate with poor judgment.
It's not an option anymore. Before they removed the links, you could click on it and fill it out yourself (they wouldn't autofill anymore) but that was the last I've seen of them.
