Well, that was fun! Enjoyed it much more than the Idioms!

Just an idea, but I think it might be better to push the option to pick up those units farther along in the tree...? There is actually quite a bit of grammar - reflexive verbs and more advanced tenses in particular - in them that hasn't been covered at the point when they are offered, which can make them quite frustrating.

Maybe add some more fun units, some less challenging ones, at different points in the tree?

Did really enjoy this one!

I agree, I purchase the idioms skill around level 3. I thought something was wrong with me because they were so hard. They shouldn't have been available until 2/3 of the way through the tree.

Hi, I've just completed it. Some good phrases to use over the holiday time, but I'm not sure how useful - 'Los buñuelos son redondos.' - 'The fritters are round.' is going to be. I'll have to slip it in to the conversation at some point!! ¡Feliz Navidad!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EAJames1991

Yeah, I like that it threw in some traditional holiday dishes- buñuelos, tamales, turrón. But they don't really translate to English very well.

Here's a few more. Have enough?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HomergingPerisee

Yah, but I don't have 30 lingots.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/IvoryLizzy1

I gave you one ! :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bcturner59

Me to. You should have enough now.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HomergingPerisee

Um, I think I have too much, who gave me some, and I only have sixteen


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RigobertoArana

I bought that recenlty, and yes, it has terms used for Christmas by native speakers... good idea to have them being part of duolingo!!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KristenDQ

I'm done with the Italian one, currently working on the Portuguese, French, and Spanish ones!

Feliz navidad, y ¿donde vives?

When does the 2017 Christmas Bonus Skill come available?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MasterGrant

I know, I'm still awaiting it. I really hope I didn't miss it.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Denise1419

5 days prior to Christmas, yet STILL NO CHRISTMAS BONUS SKILL. Duolingo really dropped the ball, on this one. I've been checking every day, for the past 74 days. Major bummer.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/millylearns_25

Has it become available yet? I'm wondering if I missed it.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/pabloanqn

Thank you very much!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Suprnova123

Thing is, I don't even know what a tamale is. :/


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/drmisterh

From wiki "A tamale is a traditional Mesoamerican dish made of masa, which is steamed in a corn husk . The wrapping is discarded before eating."


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mark-Fisher

Tamales son muy populares en Mexico y en los estados unidos en navidad


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JimIsCurious

Really? I don't see it yet. I have the lingots, but I don't see it in my bonus skill sets.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mjhillman06

Did you look in the Lingot store? You have to buy it there.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JimIsCurious

No, I missed that. I have it now. Thanks!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/911544

Are they going to post the Christmas skill for 2017? I have not seen it available yet prior or after Christmas.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SuperMCEMJ

Hi. I'm finished with it already. I know. You don't have to tell me. I'm awesome. ;P


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WaddlesNMabel

Oh, it's back out? I bought it last year. Merci & Gracias, will spread the word.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Darth_Jujee

When you buy it, do you only have a limited time to use it and then it goes away? Or is it one of your skills forever?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TheQueenZerelda

I think once you've bought it, you have it forever.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WaddlesNMabel

You are correct. It stays forever.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WaddlesNMabel

It's fun but it's really hard. You have to know a little bit of advanced Spanish to understand the lessons completely.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mikemcdonald58

Queen, thanks. Got it and it is completed.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lily868

no bonus skill for 2018 though, kind of sad
