Where'd my Esperanto culture bonus skill go?

When I saw a bonus skill available for Esperanto culture, I went ahead and picked it up in the store. I got through one or two of the lessons, but then it mysteriously disappeared. I don't even see a slot for it on the desktop app, and all the slots on the mobile app are blank - and the store still shows that I purchased it.

Ĉu mia Esperanto-kulturo lertiĝilo kabeis? Ĉu ĝi kaŝis sin en la gufujo? What's going on? If it's just been pulled back for retooling and will return soon, that's fine; otherwise I'll feel bad that I spent 30 lingots on something that just disappeared.

Ĝis! Dankon!

I never realised any Esperanto bonus skills had been released!
Having purchased the skill, the slot subsequently appeared:

I've just been through the first lesson and it seems to be working perfectly for me, albeit rather fewer than usual of the sentences have audio.

I purchased it awhile back, and have had the same problem for a couple weeks now. I also purchased the Flirting skill, and it shows up fine in both the computer and mobile screens.

Someone said if you type the direct link to the Culture class into your browser and do a lesson, the course will reappear in your skill tree. I tried that, did one lesson, and it appeared on the PC version of the skill tree for a day or so, then disappeared again. It never showed up on mobile, which by necessity is where I do most of my studying... Would really love to see this fixed!

I couldn't see my Esperanto Culture skill neither on PC nor mobile though according to my PC I am equipped. But I followed your advice and the same happened to me: again on PC, not on mobile. Don't know yet if it will disappear again.

Yeah, I tried again today after the person who created this thread said their issue was fixed. I figured maybe if I manually went to the direct link again and did a lesson, the skill would stick around this time. Nope. Same thing happened: it appeared in my tree on PC for awhile, then disappeared again. It never showed up on mobile.

I've seen several people with this issue over the past month or so, and nothing from Duolingo or the course developers about fixing it. It's a really weird issue, since I've never had any problems with the Flirting skill showing up (on both mobile and the website), and you'd think the tech behind it would be similar. Really hope it gets straightened out soon! It's a pain to try to do the culture lessons via the full website using my tablet's browser, but that's the only option I have right now.

Mine still isn't back, on either the full website or mobile. It's been weeks now...

I've picked up this skill too, but it's still not appearing either on the mobile version or on my PC. Does anyone know when it might be fixed?
