Sad/ happy owl

It always makes me sad when the crying owl tells me I am out of hearts. It makes learning a new language a little depressing. Can we maybe get a happy owl when we finish lessons with all three hearts? Not that we need too much praise for success, but who wants to disappoint an owl all the time without a chance to cheer it up?

Thanks for the suggestion! We are thinking up new ways to motivate Duolingo learners.

Yes ,true.it can also be slightly depressing seeing a sad owl all the time.I would like it if the owl was happy more,it would also cheer me up a bit as well :p

I agree. There should be a happy owl for getting the lesson right. The sad owl was very discouraging when I first started.
