Hallo. I am sure this query duplicates other posts, but I have been having trouble loading discussion threads that have more than a few comments; they overwhelm and lock up my system.

So, please, could someone tell me whether bonus skills are available for Swedish (from English)? If so, are they the same skills (Flirting, Idioms, and Christmas) as in the Big 5 languages (Spanish, French, German, Italian, and Portuguese)?

Please don't link me to other discussions; as I said, I am having trouble with most of these longer threads; that includes those threads which most likely already have an answer to my question, alas! Therefore, if someone could just answer the question plainly I would be most grateful.

Peace! -G.V.P.

They are not available. Two have been prepared - a long time ago - and are ready for release, but we're still waiting for the Duolingo developers to fix some technical issue before they can be opened. Unfortunately we have no idea about when that'll be, but it's been quite a while already. :(

These are not the same as in the larger languages. The Swedish team hates the flirting lesson so that definitely isn't coming.

Thank you for your swift reply! Do you happen to know what topics the dormant bonus skills cover?

That's hilarious that they don't like the Swedish flirting lessons. Meanwhile, I'm learning Swedish so that when I move there in a few months I can impress some Swedish chicks. I have a feeling they will not be impressed haha. Thanks for the update though!

Most people here and elsewhere are impressed by social skills, wit, and intelligence - not by being asked if it hurt when they fell from heaven. :)

I agree. The Flirting skills feel creepy to me. Although I bought them for each of the Big 5 languages, I don't believe I have completed any of them!

Perhaps you should try finding some chicks that impress you rather than the other way around? ;)

Afraid not. I'm not sure we'll ever be able to release them.
