A suggestion for Lingot Store
I LOVE Duolingo, but I'd like to make a suggestion. Can we have more and varied things in the Lingot store? Perhaps another practice set like "Flirting". Perhaps we could have "Dining" or "Driving" or "Going on Vacation" or "Meeting new friends"?
It's kind of a coincidence they're the only languages I'm learning. Dutch - I want to learn because my some of my family is Dutch, French - I'm learning it at school, Czech - it's similar to Serbian, a Slavic language I'm trying to learn, and English - reverse tree. I might do a language without red, white, and blue next time lol.

recently I heared about uTalk (did not test it)
Or asking for directions, ordering from a menu, buying items in a boutique. Things that some of us really do when we go to France instead of, Are you a model? Seriously, even the lamest guy wouldn't say that anymore. I have 253 lingots, and a zillion Gems, and like ThomasBur, no incentive to add more because what am I going to buy.
Since I don't know where else to leave a comment, I am doing it here . . . even though it has nothing to do with the lingot store. I just want to say "thanks" for getting rid of the annoying "screaming" noises that accompany correct or incorrect responses! They even bothered my dog in the other room!!
