Caution regarding your Spanish Fluency Score

If you make some typos or you make an error with an English word you can go backward in your fluency. I lost one point in fluency because there was turbulence on my flight and hit the wrong key a couple of times.

Don't think about the fluency meter. It's inaccurate

Your willingness to learn and how well you can speak the language will always improve over time if your heart's in it. I never paid any attention to the fluency meter because I talk when I have opportunities. An arbitrary meter means little.

Yeah. 50% fluent in Spanish = you get every second word wrong!

Most of us don't take the fluency score seriously and it will be going away for everyone in any case. However, I do agree that it's a good idea to avoid typos or errors in any language if you can avoid it. That said, you're unlikely to have learned less as a result of a few typos.
