Christmas Bonus skill - next year, maybe?
I see that the Christmas Bonus skill was made available for other languages last week.
Does that mean that we won't be seeing any Bonus Skills for Irish until Tree 2.0 is finished, and released? Maybe in time for Christmas 2016?
Bonus skills are tree-independent (as in, they do not have to be released with a specific tree version). Our Christmas skill is almost ready, but unfortunately, Duolingo is not :/ They simply aren't ready to release bonus skills for Incubator courses (like Irish, Dutch and Swedish). It is down to the fact that bonus skill infrastructure is different to the main tree, and there are many bugs that still need to be fixed. So, to answer your question: 1) Bonus skills may appear before Tree 2.0, or a little bit after it 2) Yes, hopefully the Christmas bonus skill will be ready for release by next Christmas 3) Keep an eye out for other bonus skills in the meantime ;)
