Japanese language

Does anyone know when Japanese will be available?

June 20, 2012


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

January 2, 2014

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

December 17, 2012

Anki and Reviewing the Kanji are indispensable. I studied the kana and kanji on my own with Heisig's books, anki, and, 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.

April 20, 2013

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

June 5, 2013

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?

June 21, 2012

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

June 21, 2012

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

December 10, 2012

Yes, please, Japanese!

January 23, 2013

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!

February 6, 2013

I want to learn japenese so bad

March 30, 2013

when will japenese come I need to knowwwww

April 1, 2013

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.

May 6, 2013

I too would love to see Japanese on here!

June 6, 2013

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

January 18, 2013

That would be amazing!

February 20, 2013

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

March 31, 2013

Please please please, let us know when Japanese will be available ."..................

March 31, 2013

Yes please add japanese!!

April 1, 2013

Please, Japanese!

April 18, 2013

This site is so awesome to learn foreign laungage! I wanna see how dualingo offer us Jpanese learning system soon.

May 16, 2013

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.


June 11, 2013

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

October 2, 2013

Porque você não ensina o que você sabe?

August 1, 2016

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

March 8, 2013

Japanese would kick ass!

June 11, 2013

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.

October 16, 2013

+1 for Japanese

October 27, 2013

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

December 16, 2013

quiero aprender japones ,de japones a español

March 18, 2013

March 30, 2013

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

May 8, 2013

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

May 8, 2013

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.

June 12, 2013

would love to see japanese

October 7, 2013

Japanese, please.

November 1, 2013

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

November 5, 2013

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 ?

November 6, 2013

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 :)

October 2, 2013

December 6, 2013

December 29, 2013

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 :) )

April 14, 2015

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.

July 2, 2015
