Mastering a course??
How can I increase my language skills? I've been doing German classes for more than half a year now, I have mastered all the lessons but my knowledge has stuck on 67%...
https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/articles/205933480-What-does-my-Fluency-Score-mean- this also says it caps around the 60+ level
I speak German fluently myself and I am stuck on 62%. I don't really think it has anything to do with your mastery of the language. Also, I have never really understood the whole XP thing...it was only recently explained to me. I see others with a 22 or 25 next to their German icons. It still confuses me somewhat shrugs.
ExpatQuebe, it is simply the adding up of how many XP's you have done. Duo has certain thresholds that when you do a predetermined X amount of XP's then you are at Level 1, or 2, or 3 etc. If you do 10xp's a day then in 300 days you will have 3000 XP's; this will automatically put you in a certain level whether you have gone through 1/2 the tree or just practiced 1 lesson 300 times. You achieve the level which is determined on how many XP's you have done and not on how far you have gone or how many times you make mistakes.
I am on 72% in French but find Duo very limited at this level as most of the work entails repetition of very easy vocabulary and phrases. They seem to favour words that are similar/identical to the English making the translation impossible to get wrong. I wish there could be more vocabulary and less of "The (word) is important". What about the hundred other adjectives I should be revising. As a result I do the lessons too fast and make typos so do not expect to progress. Maybe it is time to move on.
