Hi Duolingo team, is there a way to only focus or set the mandarin course to learn to speaking rather than reading too. Some of us are only interested to learn how to communicate for travel or work and won't need to or aren't interested to learn to read or write. Is this option available? If not have you considered this? I look forward to hearing from you.

I will want to check this out. I am struggling with my Mandarin on Duo and I love it but its challenging. A simplified must just be what the DR ordered to take me oveer the 'hump'.

I know I'm going to struggle with it so I haven't begun it yet.. I do hope they give an option to just learn to speak... I left the Shanghai school of Mandarin for the same reason the curriculum was focused on reading, writing and speaking. I'm sure there are many many people who'd like to just focus on speaking.

I'm using Babel & Michel Thomas Mandarin course for now.
