Non-native with "87-99% Expert" I'm not surprised native speakers don't all ace the test. The test is supposed to be able to measure and separate even people at very high level which includes higher than just "random person" in UK, US, etc. With that said the fill-in-the-blanks tests are not good. Doing the test I had no doubt that a more intelligent person can score higher than someone with noticeably higher English proficiency which is probably why some natives are scoring lower than they expect (below 90%).
Practice test could definitely improve overall. I am a person who grew up knowing two languages, one of them being English. This test was not at all difficult for me. But, I do agree with others that the fill in the blanks could be confusing to someone who's learning English. That saying, to all the "native English speakers" complaining on here about how hard it was, you guys are absolute idiots to not get a proficient score. How embarrassing that foreigners know English more fluently than these people with English as their first language...
Wow I speak 100% fluent English and it gave me 50-66% advanced. This test is complete crap. The fill in the blanks were so hard for me I can't imagine a foreigner taking this test. I am currently using Duolingo to learn Spanish. I'm now reconsidering using Duolingo. Maybe I'll find a new app. This is crap. Fix the test for the poor foreigners.
91-95% I took the practice test and as person who lives in the UK I am appalled at the apparent lack of understanding of one's first language. I grew up around a multi-lingual household and I did fine. Those complaining about the blanks- IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE HARD. English is one of the hardest languages to learn as there are more exceptions than rules. Grow up, stop whining and learn your language. It is a brilliant app that is free and will help you.
Wow. Honestly, this is utter garbage. I am a native English speaker, and I was shocked at how downright terrible these questions are. They don't assess English proficiency at all, especially the fill in the blanks. It's crazy how terrible this is compared to Duolingo proper.
It's valid enough English is not my native language but scoring 99 % was very easy and I think they should make it a bit harder to distinguish one's level even further. I am more proficient in English than most native speakers, but there is still so much to learn.
Bug fixes and performance improvements.
