This is how earning Xp points contributes to leveling up: http://duolingo.wikia.com/wiki/XP

It depends on how much xp you have. It doesn't really mean anything, it just shows how much you've learned and/or practiced.

As AKicsiMacska and Epicalingo said, you earn Experience Points (XP) for doing and strengthening lessons. Each level takes more xp to reach.

You can see how many XP you need to earn to get to the next level by looking at your profile. Your profile says:

Romanian - Level 10

Next level: 660 XP

Total XP: 2340 XP

It's simply a measure of how much time you spent on Duolingo doing exercises for that language. It does not indicate skill, fluency, knowledge, or anything like that.

Finishing a tree without doing reviews usually earns between 9th and 12th level, depending on the course.

Levels indicate how many EXP points you've achieved from your language course. It doesn't tell you how fluent you are or anything like that; it's based on points which could easily be gained from practicing and re-doing lessons. For example, the maximum level, 25, is 30,000 points, meaning you'd need to do about 20 lessons a day for around half a year to get to the maximum level. It doesn't reflect how well you actually know the language.

You get XP when you complete something, and that XP is used to level you up! When you get a certain amount of it, you go to the next level, which means you are more skilled than you used to be! It determines how advanced you are at the language!

No, it just signifies point total. You can repeat the basics lesson over and over and get to level 25, eventually. It doesn't measure anything about how advanced a user is.

Xp = time practiced. One you have gained a certain number of xp, you move up one level

AKicsiMacsa is right it depends not just on the xp but and fluency in French
