I used to be stoked each time I got to the end of a section and was rewarded by getting a trophy. I know it was a virtual trophy, but it meant a lot to me (sad I know). Now just completing another section it felt like a damp squib compared to how it used to make me feel. I really hope many people feel the same and that Duolingo will eventually switch back to how it was before!!
There aren't any trophies anymore? I didn't realize that. Did you get any certificates? Those give me a sense of accomplishment.
When doing a section we always saw a trophy we had to aim for, that's no longer there :( It used to give me something to aim for even though it was only a virtual trophy, other's must have liked the trophies too?
Sadly I never got any certificates, did you?
Yeah. You have to pay 20 lingots to take the test. It's in the store. It takes 15-20 minutes and gives you a certificate with a score. You can do this for any language you study and take it as many times as you want (although I think you have a pay each time). I like it because you have a good idea of how much you still have to study.
