Bonus skill disappeared.

I bought a bonus skill in the English from Spanish course, it took my lingots but didn't give me the skill. Can I fix this somehow, it cost 100 lingots!

Which skill was that? Nothing for me costs more than 30, and I have never, ever seen a price above that!

I chose the skill "fiestas y celebraciones" in the English from Spanish course, not the Spanish from English course. There are nine bonus skills listed, and the prices vary, one costs 10, and the others cost 30 or 100.

It even says it has been equipped in the store, but when I go to the tree, it doesn't show.

That is definitely very frustrating. You can submit a but report here, but, as far as I know, there's not much else you can do.

I have the same problem! I bought Everyday Colloquial for Ukrainian but it disappeared and when I go to the store there was written that it is equipped.

I have the same problem with the Flirting bonus skill when I'm learning French from English.

There are a bunch of fake skills in the lingot store of the Spanish to English course. None of them work including Musical Instruments, Pasatiempos, Make vs. Do, and a few others. The only bonus skills that one should buy are Piropos, Modismos y refranes, and Navidad.

Really? How does that happen?

There's a lot of talk about it over in the Spanish forum. What I gather is that the Es-En team was making new units in the Incubator, but some "escaped" as these unusable bonus lessons. They made the units a while back, but there were technical issues ... Eventually some of them were added to the updated tree, but not all of them and not for everyone.

It has happened to a few people before, some kind of glitch I suppose. Hopefully they are getting ready to release some new bonus skills.

I have a similar problem with bonus lessons in Bokmål. I bought 2 available bonus skills but one of them, Nynorsk, doesn't work at all, and the second one, Norway, has just disappeared. Needless to say i've lost 55 lingots :( I've already sent the bug reports. We'll see what happens...
