What Happened to the Bonus Skills?

While replying to another thread, I noticed that both Bonus skills have disappeared from the Ukrainian tree! Back in the day, there were two - Idioms and Holidays, you could purchase them at the Lingot shop, now they seem to be gone.

Does anyone know what happened? Were they removed on purpose or are we dealing with yet another bug after the latest site upgrade? Just wondering.

Oh that's terrible! I just started in March and I have even commented that the course needs something extra. It's irritating to know that it was once offered and is now gone. If they have the material somewhere for it, I hope they bring it back! I'd love to know some idioms and expressions for holidays in Ukrainian!

Yep. BTW, that was your thread to which I replied (Re: Adding more content to the course) :-)

Thanks for that! It doesn't seem fair that these other languages have them, and they leave the other languages out. I began the German course and French course (the French one I deleted) and I couldn't get over the difference in quality. The other courses use digital voices. Ukrainian has actual human speakers. It's so superior! You'd think with this sort of detail that they would improve with introducing bonus skills.
