Long ago DL has a fluency measure. It was rubbish. They dropped it. If you want an official measure you will have to pay for a test. Or you could try talking to a native speaker about something beyond "Hi" and "I would like coffee". Maybe discuss how you spend your time in lockdown and what you intend to do afterwards.

However, if you are using only DL, even when you complete the tree, to level 5, you will still be way short of "fluent". DL is a good start - but only a start.

Here's what I do to test my English and Japanese on my own: record a (casual) conversation you had in your native (or native level) language. Listen to it, and try to have the same conversation in whatever foreign language you're learning. It would not give a percentage, but I'm sure you should get a good estimation yourself.

you are at the very beginning- please continue and reach a certain level to be able to measure

I think you want the highest - or not?

    On your duome page it will give a level of "fluency" on it for each language. This is based basically on how much of the course you get right.

    I think this is probably what people are talking about!

    No - this tells you how far you are through the DL course. At best when you are finished the DL course you will be at A2 (beginner) in reading.

      Beg to disagree here! In one or more of my languages, I've gone downhill at times, going from say 98% to 93%. Had started getting mistakes as it got harder.
      Then as I improved, the score shot up again!
      I have completed a couple of Duo courses before taking a break.
      You don't get 100% just because you've done the course. On completion one was around 73% and the other 86%.
      Of course this is no indication of fluency - just how well you actually did.

      Okay - so you are looking at "Strength" - this is a measure of how recently you have used the words you have already learnt. This is not fluency - nor a measure of how far through you are. For that you need to add /progress and it will give you how many crowns you have done and how many there are in all.

      This is different from the old fake fluency percentage.
