It's time to add some cool stuff in virtual store!
please add some new stuff, you know it's got kind of boring and I cannot find any use for my stored lingots. it will bring some motivation after all.
Yes, I'd like it if they had something to do with the lingots too. It'd be nice if we could have different outfits for the owl. If they ever get Scottish Gaelic on Duolingo, it'd be cute to see Duo wearing a kilt and maybe even if we could buy some bagpipe music with our lingots. Or better yet, use the lingots to pay for bagpipe lessons for the owl so he can learn to play the bagpipes next time he goes to Scotland.
It may be perpetuating stereotypes, but that would be awesome for all the languages to have outfits corresponding with their culture and/or history.
I wish Duolingo could offer their cool t-shirts for Lingots. They could price it at 1,000-1,500 Lingots or more and make it something for which to strive. In reality, though, doing so would probably be cost prohibitive for them.
that's an excellent Idea.... it would be great ... the only thing that concerns me right now is if they read these comments. ;))))
Looks like we help one another often in these discussions. Maybe we should come up with some extra lessons via group-think then request DUO to offer. Even if we only provide the English and the sequence, maybe the official translators would implement. We would have some resources from the non-native English-speakers who are studying English via DUO. Of course, I don't know how we'll form our working group? maybe the incubator would work for us? I would very much like to see a MEDICAL lesson in all my languages, even if for emergencies only.
good thinking .... I'm always surprised by the potential of the group discussion and the things that are produced out of it ... your own idea for instance ... very creative. thanks for taking the time and replying ;-)
Couldn't agree more. I'm up to my eyes in lingots and tend to give them away to people at random. Here - look I'm giving one to @soheyl.moheb now. There's nothing in the store I'm interested in. My friend uses duolingo on a phone app and she was able to buy a golden tracksuit for her owl. It's not available in my store though. It's not fair. I want to pimp my owl too.
Do you use mobile? You can buy Duo some formal attire, a gold track suit, or (limited time) a lunar New year Dragon outfit.
I bought the formal attire and now I can't switch it off. I want my standard green owl back but can't see any way to revert to the default!
unfortunately no.... but I'll try it on other devices to see what they are... thanks a lot for the update. I didn't know that But they are gonna have to add something new to the store after all right? because most of the users mainly use computers and more important thing is that lingot have lost their attractiveness.
I don't have an option to purchase a dragon outfit for my owl. I saw this mentioned a couple of days ago and went shopping. Alas, no dragon wear then or now. :(
I agree with you. I don't have tooooooo many lingots....but I don't exactly have a way to utilise the ones that I have. Well, while there is nothing to buy, you can give away lingots to others. :) Here, have a few. :)
you know ... although I'm not learning french to earn lingots... but motivation is an essential part of the education ... and I can't agree more with this discussion thanks for posting it . ;-)
I don't think you should be able to buy any t-shirts with just lingots. But if they had special t-shirts you could only buy with money and high Lingots, that would be a great incentive. So you can show your dedication in the real world, as well online!
That's a great idea! Duolingo already sells t-shirts for real world money, perhaps they could offer a Lingot discount.
Yes please! What about Easter lessons, lessons about summer, winter, different tests, etc?
Perhaps lingots could be used to unlock extra lessons such as for example Adjectives 5, 6, 7 etc... This area is quite limited at the moment with only a few bonus skills. Expanding the vocabulary for each category of lessons into bonus tiers that can only be unlocked by spending lingots. In turn these lingots could be earned by completing previous lessons correctly without error since XP has now been reduced in this area. This might give people more incentive to practice and practice older lessons to perfection rather than racing through the tree to make it gold without necessarily absorbing all the vocabulary first. I would rather have these extra lessons to spend lingots on than new outfits for the owl.
We need TF2-like hats, or different skins or more specific lessons like the Christmas/flirting ones except on different topics that might be a bit more specific vocab for things.
yes! I'm looking for medical Spanish to volunteer at a local clinic. Medical would be great for all the languages! Just think, in case of witnessing an emergency. There are French and Arabic speaking students in my college-town. It would be great to be able to help out if needed.
that's why we are such good friends you never turn down a competition but I won't play easy this time either LET THE GAMES BEGIN!!!!!!!!!
It's just for fun after all we'll still be friends (Sweetypieb and I are best friends) and I doubt you're not creative
Are you jealous Ari or you want to redo the competition this time adding more people
You just have to make great ideas then tell others they will judge and the winner gets the fame and 5 lingots from each player (I normally win, but you can beat me this year) normally we keep it between our friends, but we want to use it to encourage others sooooo blah this is too long Ari continue my hand hurts
well you practically said everything it would be cool if Sarah beat you, I will have something to laugh at
at least I hope you find some good use for it :)))) but I hardly doubt so ;)
It would be awesome if we could customize our owl. IDK if u can already do that though... but still...
