I've completed five skills in Spanish. There are three bonus skills on my screen, but I cannot open them. When/how do I access the bonus skills?

I think you can only buy/access them when you reach the Possessives skill.

Thanks Lylloupe, I've finished possessives and clothing, but still cannot access. Don't know if they'll just suddenly become available at some point or if I'm doing something wrong when I try to access them. I'm new to this whole duo thing. Having fun, but this whole lingot store is a mystery to me. Not sure I know how to use the lingots either. I have 15 lingots, but it seems I can only use one at per lesson and they are not always available. Wish there was more explanation on how to use the store and how to open the bonus skills.

Personally, I wouldn't even bother with them until you've finished the tree, or at least have a lot of it completed. Even though these bonus skills become available fairly early in the course, their content assumes that you've mastered a fairly substantial portion of the tree. Buying them too early will just result in frustration.

Thanks, I figured it out. I see your point about the frustration of using them too early. They were difficult even after I completed the entire tree.
