Avatar??

Hey, Just had a cool idea! On Duolingo, you could make your own avatar, unlocking a certain level in Srench, get a beret, in Spanish, get a sombrero, etc. On the lingot store, you can purchase hair, shirts, and accessories. Let me know if good idea!

Thanks, -Jag

Well, I didn't realise that this site had suddenly become Club Penguin for 10 year olds...

You can buy outfits for your Duo owl from the iOS app lingot store but you cannot see them on the web interface. Gamification of the learning process can be a good idea but you can take it too far.

Yes, not Gigantic gamification, just a little tiny bit of fun. Or another way to use lingots

Ok, since people are wanting to avoid stereotypes, then maybe we could just have regular avatars with different kinds of clothing

I agree with that, like Xbox

Yes, let's gameify national stereotypes, what a great idea! So in French you could unlock stripey shirts, strings of onions and supercilious shrugs, or getting a high enough level in German would allow you to unlock Poland. I can't think what could possibly go wrong.

And for Russian, we can unlock a bottle of vodka!
