How is the 'Percent Fluent' calculated?
I'm working on my Spanish (currently doing the 'Time' lessons) and it's telling me that I'm 40% fluent, but by my calculations, I'm only about 13% of the way through my lessons. Can someone explain this? Am I going to be considered 100% fluent before I have the tree finished, or do the later lessons mean a lot less than the beginning ones?

I don't know what it means I wish they would say, maybe someone will. I'm sure they are using a different definition of "fluency" than we would use. I think it may be how well you know what you've already been taught, like if you can do the skills and never make a mistake or hover over a word you'd be at 100% even if you only were on the first lesson. But that is just a wild guess, I have no idea.
After reading the statement that jrikhal posted, it looks like it is an estimate of how well you know everything that they can teach you. Words/lessons are weighted depending on how important they are in every day speech.
It shows up for me as a golden shield with a percent on it, but apparently only half of us have it.
Suddenly, I have it! I swear it wasn't there yesterday. DL is trying to make me believe I'm crazy. >.>

I started the day at 50% fluency in Spanish. After opening a new lesson and taking my first shot the meter immediately went to 49% and after finishing it I am now 48%. I will admit this has been the hardest lesson so far.
