Are there 'Bonus Skills' for Norwegian?

I want to be able to learn how to flirt and how to speak with idioms. I hope that I get the option soon. I have not yet... I hope they have them available.

No, there are currently no bonus skills for the Norwegian course. The flirting skill is quite naf and you would probably get laughed out of the group if you tried any of them on. Also, as the Norwegian language has lots of idiomatic phrases in every day language so you probably don't need a separate bonus skill to cover them.

As psionpete already said there are no bonus skills at the moment, however the Norwegian team have developed two I believe (Nynorsk and Norway?) which probably will be available somewhere in the future as Duo allows it and all the bugs are solved (some users have reported being able to buy them somehow but mentioned lots of glitches). So stay tuned ;)

At some point a glitch made them (or at least part of them) available, so long as you typed the right url (not hard to figure out). Not anymore now.

I have been slowly chipping away at the Norwegian tree for months! But I still love it and I would like to see some bonus skills in the future! :)

Same. I hope that they come out in one of the near future updates. Norwegian is so beautiful.

Currently, there are no bonus skills available for the Norwegian course, but hopefully there might be some in the future! Idioms & Proverbs, to me, is the most helpful and necessary.

No, there are not bonus skills for Norwegian at this time, however, if you have some extra time, Norsklærer Karense on youtube has some very nice videos and TONS about idioms. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbrUYR892qBNQyY3DEqfTBg
