I saw job postings for people fluent in Japanese months ago, so I assume they have people working on it. If you are learning Japanese, in the meantime I would check out Anki, All Japanese All The Time, Reviewing the Kanji, and Fixoodle.

Japanese for English speakers please

Thanks for posting this, I got caught on a tangent on the second URL, and really discovered some cool stuff.

show your support for the japanese language addition :) http://img38.imageshack.us/img38/7919/5tei.jpg

Anki and Reviewing the Kanji are indispensable. I studied the kana and kanji on my own with Heisig's books, anki, and kanji.koohii.com, and then enrolled in a first-year college Japanese course. Of course I continued using anki in the class. I too would like to see duolingo offer Japanese.

I know japanese but i want learn more with duolingo method.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/duolingojay

I can't wait to try, but it doesn't sound like it is a top concern (I keep reading that Chinese and Portuguese are next up)... how good is your Japanese?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Wolf_of_Salbura

Unfortunately, I am just a beginner. I know the Hiragana and Katakana characters and some Kanji.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/kennethjor

I'm currently learning Japanese and I think the tools here would help me out a lot! +1 Japanese


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/cyboteur

Yes, please, Japanese!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/lorena_mal

JAPANESE PLEASE! No matter if you have some years studying it, it's a never-ending-learning language, and having the audio help and easy practice could make a huge difference, please duolingo!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LPSRanger

I want to learn japenese so bad


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LPSRanger

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Gonzalezcaa

I am ALL FOR JAPANESE! I can imagine the potential for it on this awesome site, but they'll have to wrestle with the alternative scripts, since the most they've had to do so far was accents in latin letters.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LiamNoir

I too would love to see Japanese on here!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/egately

I very much would like to use Japanese using this method. I just found the site and have been brushing up on my Italian.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Salman6896

That would be amazing!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Smillerr

Pretty please do Japanese soon :) I'm fairly competent at it but this would really help!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Trees55

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sakurahan18

Please add Japanese! I've been trying to learn it for the past few years but everything I read tells me something different. I want a reliable resource to go to to help me learn. I've learnt some kanji but nothing else.

Thanks!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Fernandamauric

Japonês é magnifico, faço curso e seria muito bom para ampliar meu estudos.日本語のコースをしてください tradução por favor curso de japonês


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BellaSpencer

Porque você não ensina o que você sabe?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Chris_A

This site is great! I'd love to see Japanese added!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/c4dynamic

Japanese would kick ass!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/blindcat97

I'd just like to say that this would be a fantastic use of Duolingo's resources. Using their group translation project, they could get into the main industries that drive most American's to want to learn Japanese in the first place: anime and manga. They would both be highly profitable by adding it, they would be benefiting a massive number of people. Personally, from what I've seen, it would be much larger than Portuguese.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EmiliaKin

when is japanese going to be added to doulingo God danm it


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/yana1964

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LPSRanger

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/loogawa

I would love to know when and if this would be available


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Trees55

Why is it, that nobody gives us an answer??????? Does it ever come????


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/spacedet

I too, would love it if Duolingo had Japanese. Of course there will be technical challenges with the Kanji and even with the Furigana, but the huge amount of new users should make up for it.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sophieza

would love to see japanese


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/fretrand

Japanese, please.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/nukefluke

Damn!!! I want to learn japanese too!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ohnhai

I saw on the incubator page that English for Japanese speakers was being hatched. Which means you have a bi-lingual team working on that... How hard would it be to do the Japanese for English speakers at the same time ?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Fandekasp

I had lot of fun learning a bit of german, but now I have to focus on Japanese, and I really regret not being able to use duolingo for that. Hopefully a good surprise will come soon :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ethan_Fukuhara

i hate that there is no Japanese because i want to learn it !


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sam_likes_bio

Ja-pa-nese! Ja-pa-nese. Yah!!

Yes, I agree: Japanese!

Please Japanese ASAP!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ohnhai

would love Japanese but Chinese might be fun :) then I can play at living in the 'Firefly Verse'. Shiny !! :) (note: in Joss Wheedon's space western Firefly, English and Chinese were the dominate languages and our 'heroes' swore like troopers but only in Chinese (A:to foil the network censors B: 'cause it's cool :) )

I like it, I love it, I want some more of it. Studied Japanese for 3 years and studied abroad over there. Would be so grateful for an easy way to practice.

Man, 3 years and still no JP. Well, you can learn from youtube in the meantime. Check out this kid who is learning Japanese (in Japan) and makes videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCaeHnskkJIyzrLK1cwbjWCg

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Cloud312504

And it's available now :) I think we can improve our learning Japanese a lot if we use good materials. During my learning process, I must thank to these resources: App: Dictionary: http://bit.ly/Mazii_iOS Learn Kanji: http://bit.ly/iOS_Janki Read news: http://bit.ly/iOS_EasyJapanese
