I was wondering how to get Lingots. I think it is a new feature since I never seen it before I would love is someone told me what it was and how to get it.... Thank you so much.

Check your store tab and you'll find this down at the bottom below the items you can purchase with the lingots:

What is a lingot? A lingot [ling-guht] is the Duolingo virtual currency. The more you learn on Duolingo, the more lingots you'll receive and be able to use in the store! They can be earned through:

<pre>Leveling up Earn 1 lingot (multiplied by level reached) Finishing a skill Earn 2 lingots for finishing a new skill Full hearts Earn 1 lingot for finishing a lesson with full hearts 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 </pre>

Note: Lingots are not awarded for leveling up or finishing skills while using a tree shortcut.

Thank you so much for your help! :) Danke!

You're welcome! ¬°De nada!

Darn! I just leveled up in Spanish while doing a translation. So I didn't get any lingots. If I had done a lesson I would have gotten 19. (BUYER BEWARE!!!)
