French golden tree = 46% Fluency

Just in the interests of research, I have been working like a dog to complete my French tree, which I half finished a couple of years ago. In the last 48 hours, instead of lying in my dog bed - actually on the sofa when my human isn't looking - I have been beavering away.

I have either tested out or completed individual skills to get through the lessons as quickly as possible and try to keep my tree golden throughout. I now have 1913 words in my vocabulary list. Where necessary, I have used the new flashcards feature to touch up the gold leaf where it was peeling a bit.

What do I get for a fully-gilded, 100% completed, tree? A 46% fluency rating. Do I feel more of a French poodle than when I started? Not a bit of it, unless French poodles suffer from very sore paws.

It is now well past my bedtime and I'm dog tired. I'm hoping that, if I print off my golden owl, my human will let me off walkies tomorrow morning and give me an extra handful of kibble instead.

Good doggie. Let me get you a little bit of bacon. You like bacon? Good job little doggie.

One other thing I forgot to mention. My fluency was 24% two days ago. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?

I was at 54% from the first day I got the fluency shield, and late last week it dropped to 46% for no apparent reason. I'm trying to get it back up, but so far with no success. It makes me wonder if they tweaked the calculation.

My fluency is at 47% while I only have completed half of the tree and only half of that is golden. How can it be?

Are you a westie? ^_^

Félicitations ! The fluency measure is very strange though... I did the "Clothing" skill for Portuguese, and my number went from 7% to 20%. Apparently 13% of what Brazilians talk about is clothing?
