Polish and Japanese
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.
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.
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
I'm glad it could help. The course should be released very soon (I'm excited also!)
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.
Soon is better than nothing. Thank you :)
Ah yes I imagine so because of the change in script and kanji.
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 :)
course is going so well. I can go into a polish shop now and understand some words :D and that is from knowing no polish. So glad this course was made
Thanks I just signed up and tried it. It seems go so far but not as good as duolingo. But it's something to help the wait for the duolingo course. Thank you
Hi:) I am from Poland so if you have some questions don't hesitate to ask, even the polish course will be not release Pozdrawiam
Thank you so much. Once the course is released I may have many questions. I followed you :)
