How fluent are you when you complete a language tree?

I have been learning Spanish for just over 5 months and I am about 2/3 to 3/4 through the tree. At the moment I can say almost anything I want but I have to think a lot before I say. And I can understand most things when people talk slowly to me (I have also had a lot of help from Spanish family). So can someone who has finished their Spanish tree tell me how good there ability just after completing the tree?

Edit: and I also have learnt more vocab by using 'Wespeke' and learnt a few other tenses.

You may be able to 'say anything you want' but that is a far cry from fluency and probably reflects the relatively simple things you want to say, unless you have learned things (subjunctive, conditional, a great deal of vocabulary, etc. ) apart from Duo. :)

Yes I've also learnt the conditional tense and a lot more vocab outside of Duo. And i've also used 'WeSpeke' to talk to people in Spanish :) But not the subjunctive

Echoing what others have said, not at all fluent. Duolingo, for all of its strengths, will only get a user to mid-level reading comprehension. To understand a spoken language you need to clock serious immersion time.
