Duolingo is the most popular way to learn languages in the world. Best of all, it's 100% free!

Just an Idea

I had an idea that maybe the Duolingo owl could be customized depending on which language's lessons are being taken, e.g. during French lessons the owl that appears can be wearing a French hat. Or even something more extreme like the owl during (future) Hindi lessons could be wearing a sari.

Of course this is not needed or anything (Duolingo is already absolutely amazing as it is :D) but it's just a suggestion which would, in my opinion, make the site just a little bit better. It would also touch on the cultural aspect of learning languages.

In my opinion, this is really really great! It would be just another idea to add to the shops (customizable objects) and it would be even more incentive for people to earn points and translate.

Duo already does this. Duo is wearing a different country's flag at the end of every language tree.

Or just a flag, as I think has been discussed at length!

That's right, but we could choose the flag. For example, if you learn French, you could choose between the flags of France, Belgium, Canada, etc. It doesn't have to be necessary the French flag. Same if you learn Spanish, English, or any other country.
