Please comment below on what could be the next new bonus skills. I think we are all aware that there are only two choices (Idioms and Romance), unless it is December. If you want more choices to spend your enormous bank account of lingots on, comment below and upvote please. I want all people to unite together to make a big difference in the Duolingo community. Let's make Duolingo a better educational site for everyone worldwide!

Some words could include: defendant, plaintiff, appeal, parole, plea, prosecute, felony, misdemeanor, settlement, statute, verdict, contract, personal injury, intellectual property, property, due process, constitution, evidence, jury, indict, convict, injunction, fine, restraining order, opinion/judgment, lawsuit, and litigation.

The words would definitely have to be carefully-chosen to be accessible to non-lawyers, too.

In my opinion, the bonus skill should vary among which language you're learning and what's important in their culture.

There should be some sort of bonus skill on holidays, especially about holidays belonging to that specific language's culture.

I would appreciate elaboration on something. Say you are learning Spanish and you love animals. Duolingo has an Animals skill in the Spanish tree, but it doesn't focus on something. It would be nice if you could buy extra animals.

That is unnecessary, though, because you can find more of specialized topics on Tinycards. I was able to learn a lot more animals through Tinycards, and I think that it would be a good replacement for missing bonus skills.

For more advanced learners, it would be cool if you had to pay a lingot fee to learn a Tinycards deck. You could preview the first few cards to see if you like the deck before buying it.

Of course, every idea has its problem and I haven't thought much about this, so any constructive criticisms are welcome. =)

These ideas pop up from time to time. I have always felt that the hardware store would be a worthwhile extended bonus skill, words like hammer, nails, screw, ladders...

One that would be good today would be a lesson asking things like "where is free wi-fi for my device" or "where can I charge my smart phone?"

I'd love to see a bonus skill about history- one that gave you historical facts about the country or countries that the language came from.
