Certificate Exam gone from Lingot Store?
I no longer see the Certificate Exam option in the Lingot Store. Has this feature been removed? I understand that a new official Certification option is available in English for $20 . This is unbelievable and likely a life-changing opportunity for many around the world. It would be unfortunate, however, if the free Certificate Exam function were removed with the $20 official exam serving as a replacement as they serve very different functions. I didn't need the exam to prove language proficiency for job or education opportunities, but I instead used the Certificate Exam as a way to track my progress along the way. It was one of the few options in the Lingot Store that had a substantial repeating cost, so it gave extra motivation to built up ligots as well. Is this feature gone forever, or just temporarily?
That's nuts! I didn't realize they removed it until you just mentioned it. What's crazy is that I was contemplating about taking the Certificate Exam a few days ago, and ultimately decided to just go for it. Thankfully, I can still see that I earned my Portuguese certificate. I was definitely going to take it again in the future, and I'm surprised that they did remove such a useful feature.
That makes perfect sense. Thanks for the quick reply! I think what you're doing to make education and opportunities available for everyone is just amazing. Keep up the great work!
Do you know when it is coming back? It is nice to take every few weeks to see where I am!
Yeah so where is it? How about that Vocabulary Page that was coming back in uh Late April or... "Early" May.
Whoops, I was just searching for the certificate as well and was wondering where it was :D
I also like to see my improvement with the certificate from time to time and I am highly interested what the mentioned "new" certificate will be like :)
They have brought it back,but now it says "Progress Quiz" instead of "Certificate Exam".
It seems to be the same. It gave me my new results and when I viewed all my results it appeared in the list with the old results. Yay!
Cannot find the test anywhere - please advise. Finally got through the whole session and with over 1000 lingots saved up was looking forward to some serious practice.
If you click on your "lingot" total, it will bring you to the "Lingot store". Here, you can find the "Italian Progress Quiz" under the "Practice" subsection.
Thank you but it is no longer there under my login. I only see Timed Practice. Could it be it is gone because I have completed all sections and got to 60% fluency? Or is it part of the overall revenue model changing?
I read on another thread that it's gone now due to the website upgrade that's being rolled out. It's not clear if or when it will come back. I can't seem to find the thread where I read that, or else I would link to it :-)
