Opinions please - Idioms and Flirting lessons

Has anyone ever done the Idioms or Flirting lessons? Are they worth the 30 lingots?

I don't think it is worth it. You would be better off using Memrise and completing the "350 Spanish sayings" course or something similar.

The flirting lesson is fun but very cliché

The idioms lesson is very hard. You just have to learn them by heart, no explanations whatsoever. I don't really like it.

You want to be far enough down your tree before you do those, and even then, being idioms, it's a lot of trial and error to complete them.

Many people don't like them, but here's something to remember: When you are down in your tree and have a million lingots you can't spend, it's not really about them being worth lingots. Whether you want it or not is up to you.

So maybe when I get many more lingots and I have to either use or lose them

i agree that they're not very easy, so i'd wait until you're, say, half way down the tree at least, but the flirting one is quite funny.

The flirting one sounds like it might be cute and funny...thank you for the feedback

I didn't really think so, especially with the idioms. Maybe after you've completed a good section of the tree you can try them.

Thank you for the feedback. It sounds like the idioms are not really worth the effort (and the high amount of lingots)
