500+ lingots and nowhere to go
Need some more skills/objectives for spending lingots. How about chat w/a native for lingots
That would be a good idea. I'm in the same boat, lingots mean nothing for me bc there's nothing to spend them on. I've also thought it would be cool to have extra lessons, like flirting and idioms, for culture, holidays, geography in that country etc
I'd like that. I'd also like to get some lessons with pure listen and translate to work those listening skills.
I definitely agree that there should be additional skills with listening questions only.
they had a holiday extra lesson around christmas. probably just seasonally exclusive which is why they took it away
More rewards are well overdue by now, doesn't even have to be anything TOO intricate, just something silly like words mini-games could be neat. Maybe a game where you need to correct a wrong sentence? So many options.
I really like the idea of minigames, especially your idea of correcting sentences. It would be a good way to review grammar. I know the folks at Duolingo have so much going on though. And are there any questions where it reads a sentence out, and you have to translate it? I think it would be a good way to practice listening.
I also feel that there should be more levels that have to be unlocked, perhaps with lingots or even by passing a hard test. Perhaps a level that you can access only through 20 listening questions..?
Extra lessons in the culture, history and geography of a country sound amazing! As does a chat with a native speaker!
Basically, I think more content that has to be earned through playing the game that duolingo is! :)
I had so many lingots that I actually bought that red suit for the owl out of curiosity. It looks TERRIBLE! Maybe they could hire some fashion designers and give us more owl clothes options.
I would love to see specialized modules -- academic language, medical terminology (beyond the basics), legal terms, business terms. I'd pay lots of lingots for appropriate ones. They could link it to the certificate that they are rolling out, so you could get a certificate in French with specialty modules in medical and legal terminology.
Your idea for specialized modules is a good one, but the thought of you dressing your owl... well that gave me a giggle!
Brilliant idea about specialized modules. I'm an engineer and I don't even know the most basic engineering terms in French. Like what a bolt is called etc. An engineering skill would be very useful for us who are thinking about relocating.
I love this idea. I'm studying nutrition and I would love to take a medical or science terminology module.
I can see a future for this even for academics. I'm primarily a sociologist. In English, we have a jargon AND we use some common words in uncommon ways. I'm finding, in the Durkheim immersion piece, that the French is not a literal translation many times. I'd love to have a sociology or social science add-on.
Is there some possibility that I could exchange my 345 lingots to bitcoins ?
wow you have many flags here above. Does it mean that you know all these Languages?? and what does the number behind each flag mean?
Oh hello hello audur, very nice to have a comment from you :) Oh no no, I am just a very very simple man who has a very mediocre size hram. I have a big passion to learn every language I can and be able to communicate with the whole world, I can just say that there's no way I could have a proper conversation in irish, danish, dutch or french. And the other languages, well as a humble man I'm not saying anything, only the people to whom I speak these languages can answer if I really know those languages.
Some day, some day I'll make a video of me speaking different languages. But it frightens me, I have a tendency to be very very shy and secretive about my secret powers
Don't be humble. We must get rid of this sentiment that is humility, it does nothing good to society. Be proud of your knowledge, sei der Übermensch.
Oh very exciting words from you clnoy ! you make my face blush and my mediocre sized hram erect in exitement with this new idea of being a übermensch !!!
Did you know there is an African language that is impossible to learn, unless you were born to that country? The muscles in your mouth and throat is what forms the shapes to make the sounds to speak that language. in that country, the language is so complex, for someone not born in that language it would be impossible to make the muscles in your mouth to form the sounds.
The flags stand for each language you are currently leaning. And the numbers behind each flag shows what level you're on in that language. So, currently, my French flag would have an 17 behind it.
I actually am going to france but i need to learn some skills with lingots can someone help?
I'm a programmer, (in training) and I would love it if there was even moderately technical terms for Spanish.
Minigames (e.g. for practicing words), skills like at the market, in the house, business, holidays, in the hotel, all kinds of other things which not everybody needs, but some people need them already after a month of learning a language.
And not only Christmas, but also per language a special holiday/speciality which can be different per language like Sinterklaas for Dutch, food for French, or per language the country's special food.
And, of course, per sth like 20 language the ability to do one or two lessons off line.
What do you think of these ideas???
