Hi everyone.

I'm using the duolingo for my German studies. I really love it and I find I'm much better at reading and listening to German from using it. My goal is to finish the tree, get to level 25 and then do the reverse tree. It's really motivating me to keep up my German after school.

I was wondering if there will be a course for Polish and for Japanese, because I am also studying these languages. Could anyone let me know a date when they will be released? If they are.

Thank you.

Scott

The Polish course is almost ready to be released. You can see their porgress updates here, but just know that the Estimated Completion Date is wildely inaccurate. my guess is Polish will be released sometime in early 2016.

Japanese has not yet been started, and there are a variety of reasons for that, specifically with the way Duolingo builds courses. you can read about the current problems with the Japanese course here.

happy learning!

Looks like I was wrong. For all those waiting for the course: it has been released!

Thank you this information is very useful. It seems like they are 99% complete the course so the beta should be released very soon.

Ah yes I imagine it's because of the script and the kanji

Will you learn Polish too? I can't wait for this. And I'm not going to use any other sources until I reach level 25 on duolingo polish so I can really see how well duolingo works :) then I'll watch films and listen to music etc like I do with other languages

Duolingo works well to get you to a decent level, but i really suggest using other resources to maximize your learning. Your call though.

I will probably learn polish sometime, but I don't have the tie now. i'll probably do the first lesson though, just to get my feet wet.

I understand, because I use a number of sources for Japanese and German and I will defiantly use other resources once I get to level 25 on polish. I just want to see if I can learn language from scratch with duolingo and how much I understand after reaching level 25. And I also have many polish friends to practice with.

Nice :) that's a good idea. At least you will have made a start and then you can come back to it then.

Polish is coming soon. No date yet, just soon...

Japanese... well, a quick search through the forums will reveal the difficulties in getting that onto the Duolingo platform.

Estimated completion date for Polish is December 9th, 2015.

I'm afraid there is no available Japanese course, or one slated for completion in the near future... :(

Oh that is today's date. Is that correct? If so it should be released very soon :) I'm very excited, thank you for this.

Oh that's a shame. I think it would improve my Japanese a lot. Oh well I'll just stick to my memrise courses on Japanese and my textbook and audio courses :D

The release date is widely incorrect because it is a machine calculated date. As o three weeks ago, the team still has to double check all translations and hints (there are thousands of them!), and finish up some testing. Expect the course, soon, but not necessarily according to the date. There is a lot of stuff that the team has to do that the computer doesn't recognize :)

You may want to try Linguti.com in the meantime. I really don't like it anywhere near as well as Duolingo, but they do offer Japanese and Polish, so it will be a good alternative for now.
