NEW BONUS SKILLS!!!!!!
Sadly there are none...
... and there haven't been any for quite a while. Sorry for getting your hopes up :( We've had quite a few Holidays and important events pass us by that would have been perfect, however still no new Bonus Skills. I'm sure there are those of you just like me who check at least twice a day to see if there are any new skills available in the lingot store, and just like me are always disappointed that there is never anything new.
It would be wonderful to have some sort of update on whether or not we will be getting anymore at all. Or even better, why not allow an incubator type of thing for users to create bonus skills? This could be a wonderful add on that would keep all of us users happy who have completed their trees and are yearning for more. There could be hundreds of bonus skills in every language generated by users who are fluent in those languages!
Anyway, if you too are yearning for more bonus skills and would like some sort of update on their status, upvote this topic!
Vamos todos juntos con Duolingo!
At the moment they are more focused on the new courses being created, but I do like your idea of an incubator section for bonus skills, I would be more than happy to assist with that.
I don't want bonus skills. Bonus skills aren't well incorporated into the system, so you have to practice them separately. I want expanded trees! That's something I can work with. :)
I'd definitely contribute to make bonus skills if an incubator section for such was made, great idea you have!
Great suggestion! Here are some ideas for bonus skills:
Por vs. Para
Uses of "se" (reflexive, passive voice, etc.)
Family 2 (nephew, niece, grandson, mother in law, stepfather, relative, related, ...)
Feelings 2 (laugh, cry, shame, ashamed, guilt, guilty, anger, angry, bored, boring, boredom, exciting, excited, fun, funny, ...)
Medical 2 (more body parts)
Household Items 1 (pillow, blanket, bed sheet, sink, faucet, toilet, shower, drain, doorknob, trash can, AC outlet, ...)
Automotive (brake (verb), brakes, accelerator, transmission, steering wheel, bumper, headlights, turn signal, tire, park, parking lot, garage, steer, truck, van, gas, gas station, ...)
Technology (device, keyboard, mouse, touch screen, power adapter, charge, recharge, user account, user name, password, upload, download, application, app, hardware, software, data, ...)
And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Seriously, these things are more basic than "penguin". I volunteer for making contributions or being a lesson beta tester. Maybe there can even be an upvote feature for user-created lessons. I dunno.
More elective lesson ideas: Cooking/Kitchen items, Gym, Restaurant, Defense Against Insults, etc.
I would like more bonus skills as well, because I have only discovered three.
I have been waiting for more ever since I realised they were a thing! I also find it strange that it would appear that if you didn't grab the Christmas one at Christmas time you missed it
