Can flirting be disabled?

I teach 6th graders, and the flirting bonus is inappropriate. Is there a way to disable it for my students?

I found some similar posts about this topic:

Reaction from a Duolingo admin:

It is not possible for teachers to disable bonus skills (such as flirting) at this time, but it is something we might work on. Tell us more about how this would help you, and I will make sure the team is aware. :]

This was one year ago, so things might have changed but don't hold your breath ;) Maybe move this post to the "Educators" forum or "Troubleshooting" one to get more responses? Or post a message on vivisaurus her activity stream (she's the admin who wrote the reaction above)

Edit: I see you found the first post on your own before creating this one... would have been nice to include something like "found this thread... wasn't possible before.. is it now?" But kudos for searching before posting ;)

"Hi, beautiful." "If being sexy were a crime, you'd spend your life in jail." "Your smile is beautiful." etc. I would not recommend buying Flirting.

I didn't judge it to be more inappropriate for my 6th grade charge than it would be for anyone else, but I did make sure to explain to him that many of the suggested flirts are extremely corny or offensive and to use any of the phrases with extreme care!
