Why no immersion in Irish?

Many other courses have an "immersion" section where to translate documents in the target language to your native language. Especially when you have finished the tree this is a great way to practice and add to your vocabulary. Why is there no such section in the Irish course? Seems like it would be a great addition!

Hi! Duolingo have stopped developing the Immersion feature. The other courses which do not have Immersion will probably never get it. I hope this helps:)

No problem! If you live in Ireland, you could easily access some Irish books or media to use as an alternative to Immersion.

Don't live in Ireland any more. But with TG4, litriocht.com and other online sources it's easy enough to find source material -- but immersion has the benefit of other people checking on and improving your translations. ;-)

Because Duolingo dropped that profit model and has no plans to implement it for any incubator language.

Ah, good to know. GRMA!

I knew it was part of their original business model and was a wee bit skeptical of how useful it was for learners, but surprised myself by doing bits and pieces of it (in Spanish) and enjoying it! Oh well...
