Fluency update

Hi Guys. I recently discovered Duolingo and am learning French with it. As a native speaker in both English and German I decided to check out the German Tree to see to what level it takes you and I must say I'm very impressed. I found a bug though: Having completed the German tree and beeing level 11 Duo tells me I am 21% fluent in German. At level 5 French I am at 22%. The German fluency only changed with the first few excercises I did. Is this a general problem or just specific to my account?

Thanks for your time & answers! Rock on!

This is currently an experimental A/B test feature. Some/most users might not have it (such as myself). Anyway, my guess is that it works similarly to an old feature that claimed you could read a certain percentage of a language. The way it worked is that it depended on the word strength, that's probably why the fluency improved as you did exercises.
