Fluency is an estimated measure of proficiency of the vocabulary, grammar, comprehension and the ability to produce the language. As of November 2016, the fluency score was only available in Spanish, German, French, Portuguese, Italian, and English but since then the fluency score has also been made available in Polish, Danish, and Swedish.
Metrics used Edit
The metrics used to estimate user's fluency include:
- progress in a course;
- accuracy of the answers;
- frequency of practice;
- words learned; and
- importance of words.
The fluency score will either increase through continued practice or decrease if the user doesn't regularly practice. As of October 2017 one can only reach a fluency as high as 65%, which according to Duolingo is equivalent to an advanced proficiency in the Duolingo Test Center .
