Turkish word list? Immersion? Idioms?

I'm curious as to why the German (for English speakers) course has more features than the Turkish? I'd love to be able to look at the list of Turkish words that I've learned as there are specific ones that I continue to misspell.

Also, the German course has fun little bonuses that one can purchase with lingots. Not to mention the opportunity to read articles in German. Will these features be added to the Turkish course at some point?

We have no control over the Words tab. No course from the Incubator has it and we have no idea when it may come (if it ever comes). In terms of the bonus skills, we already have two made (Bonus Phrases and Extended Family). We are currently making one on Turkish proverbs. A bug is currently being ironed out by the Duolingo staff and these will hopefully come out sooner rather than later. :)

I'm in Mass learning Turkish! Unfortunately, I don't know that many Turks here though... Maybe we should have a meetup.

Also... If you live in Boston... can you recommend a good Turkish restaurant here?

It isn't strictly Turkish, but Oleana is truly fabulous. It's near Inman Square.

That looks very good, but also a bit on the expensive side. I'll check it out, but maybe for a special occasion.
