From lingots to gems

  • 1510

Hey guys! Does anybody know what happened today? I am studying Japanese, and instead of lingots I suddenly show gems, 1000 to be exact. The shop looks complete different and very sparse. Can only power up for a streak freeze of one day. And there is a Health button now. No clue what that means... Sioety

Thank you for your help! I guess I should check the duolingo website once in a while. S.


For now, that switch appears to be temporary, though.

With me, it happens when I go from French (definitely on the gem system) back to Japanese - all of a sudden Japanese has gems, too. But if I leave the app, or just do one exercise, I'm back on the lingot system.
