I can't earn lingots
With my iPad when I finish a lesson within a skill (lesson 1, lesson 2, etc) with full hearts, I earn a lingot. But not with the computer (it uses strength bars now?? not hearts)
*** I would finish a lesson in German with the computer- no lingots.
*** I go back to the iPad, finish the same lesson again- with full hearts, lingot earned.
Why is this?
Leveling up Earn 1 lingot (multiplied by level reached)
Finishing a skill Earn 2 lingots for finishing a new skill
10 day streaks Earn 1 lingot for every 10 days on a streak (1 for 10, 2 for 20, etc)
Inviting friends Invite a friend to Duolingo and, if your friend accepts, you both will receive 1 lingot
Uploading documents Upload a document to Immersion, and receive 1 lingot every time someone upvotes your document
Note: Lingots are not awarded when you use a tree shortcut to level up or finish a skill.
There aren't hearts anymore :P
But one thing I don't understand is why are they getting rid of the good way to earn lingots? why are they making lingots so hard to get now
It seems hard in the beginning, but as you progress you end up with far too many, and wishing they were harder to earn.
The computer version does not have hearts, but rather strength bars. Don't worry, as you progress through the levels you'll soon hit the point where you have more lingots than you know what to do with. Good luck!
