Suggestion: Bonus skill: Weather.
Hi, Thank you Duolingo team for creating such an awesome web site. I am not sure if it has already been suggested but I couldn't find anything related to this topic .I am so glad that new features are added to the website and I have a little suggestion. I believe that it would be a really nice addition to the web site to create a bonus skill called 'Weather'. I know that there are some words in 'Nature' section but I found that there a lot of useful words missing. There could all the basic word connected with the topic. If you like the idea, please upvote it, so that people from Duolingo would notice it. It could look something like this :)
Ha! My wife and I still laugh about the BBC weather reports from our last trip to London. Every day someone would come on and intone "A sheet of gloom over England today". Literally every day!
Now whenever we have clouds where I live (in a desert, so this is rare) we just look at each other and say "A sheet of GLOOM!" :)
Agreed! Another reason to lengthen trees or increase lessons: there are plenty of words that are in trees, but not in all trees of that language! "Huh?" I have seen words doing the Spanish to French tree that I never saw in English to French (all gold for a while now, thanks) nor English to Spanish (still in progress). So,eg, at the very least every word in French that is on any tree, should be available to those learning French from any other language.
A lingot for this suggestion :) , I really like this one and more themes. Like small talk, If there would be themes for beginners that travel to that specific country, they could focus on those courses instead of learning the language step by step. It would encourage people...
Wow! Your graphics for the mockup are perfect! Did you use Illustrator? Anyway, I want store clerk phrases! I work in a hardware store and we get Spanish speakers all the time. I would like to know how to say things like "Can I help you find anything?" "That will be $20.67" etc.
