Finding the total number of XP
Your number of XPs and those of your friends can be seen in the friends ranking section.
Finding the XP of a given course
As of July 4 2017 it seems there is no easy way to see the XP of a given course in Duolingo. Duome shows the XP of the current course.
In addition to providing a way to track your daily activity and compete with your friends, XP also determine your language "level". This "level" is a measure of how much work you have put into the language. It is not a measure of your "level of mastery" in the language, which was measured by the now discontinued fluency badge.
The level can be seen on the web site.
- In "Your profile" page, in a box with a scroll bar.
- In Reset or remove languages. You can cancel this page after seeing all your languages at once.
- Above your comments in discussions.
Each level requires reaching a certain amount of XP. The maximum level is 25. The XP requirements for each level are shown in the table to the right.
In May 2019, language levels stopped appearing on the main page when hovering the language flag.
