Cultural icons

The cultural icon section just popped up in my profile/friends area. Can anyone explain what it is and how it works??

Same for me. I checked Duo's fan wiki page, duo'site and there was no explanation. I hope it is a good addition.

Tapping them gives the explanation: 'Keep reaching your daily goal for a chance to unlock this item.'

I would show you a screenshot, but the tab has now completely disappeared. This may be similar to the double XP option, which is only available once a week or so.

I think mastering a language gives you one icon

Hm... I'm not sure it's that. There are 9 icons, and on 2 of them I can recognize the silhouette. One is Eiffel Tower and another Notre Dame. Both are in France, and I'm practicing french, so one icon is not equal one language.

Yeah. And it's just in the French course not even Spanish. All are French. I don't know how to collect them.

Doesn't make sense. I have a gold tree, L3 in Hebrew, and it only popped up for French once I switched to the French tree. It wasn't there before. It's only French cultural icons. Once I switch back to Hebrew, it disappears..

Agreed. I see it on French, but not Italian. I think it must have been added at the same time they added new lessons a few days ago.

I just want to add that there are no icons in Portuguese either.

I guess if you go to the Eiffel Tower you win the Eiffel Tower's sticker, and so on... in the old days Duo had a medal that was bestowed to you if you went overseas; I guess they brought that idea back.
