Lack of features for Russian language

Does anyone know if Duolingo is in progress of adding more features for Russian? It makes sense French and Spanish have them because of popularity, but it would be helpful to have more feedback for the language..

Do you mean features like Words and Immersion? No, there aren't any plans to add these to other courses.

I thought it was just Immersion they weren't adding. They're really not adding Words? That's actually useful.

I personally find Immersion far more useful than Words.

Yes indeed, for practice. What I meant by "useful" was useful enough for Duolingo to keep on the site, as they've stated they weren't going to add Immersion to the rest of the languages. Words, on the other hand, I kind of expected them to add to everything, as it's a good way to see ones status with each word.

I see. I don't think they've actually added Words to any of the incubator languages. There is actually a hack to get into it which I tried a while back. It didn't work out too well for Russian, many words didn't display correctly.

Hmm, I don't recall any problems on that front, but some of the functionality isn't there compared to courses that actually have a Words tab.

Yeah, I just realized Words was missing from the course.
