Just wondering if any alpha testers were able to access the Japanese course with their existing account, and if so, did you lose progress in other courses? I don't want to create another account.

Yes (I didn't read it properly); no progress lost; no changes at all that I can see. The course itself doesn't work properly in the browser, however, and the website will force you to switch to another language when you use it.

Yes. Some Japanese audio isn't working, and some words aren't defined, but apart from that it all seems to be functioning all right.

Garpike-That's an impressive mix of languages. How many trees did you complete and what were they?

I accessed the glitch before i was accepted as an alphatester, and it didn't mess up my progress. But the email did say that they recommend that you do create an new account, so i did just to be safe.

I'm an alphatester, and I use this account for alpha testing. Before I started (yesterday) I used the hack to learn Japanese. It's a very safe hack, and doesn't affect Duolingo in any way.

And as you can see...I'm perfectly fine so far.

Thanks! No lost streak or levels? I learn a lot on Duolingo, but for me the most important is the motivation I get from the game aspect of it. If I lost my flags, levels, streak, I'd probably stop using it.

Nope, if you see that my Italian suddenly went back to 0, I voluntarily resetted it.

Are they still accepting applicants? Or am I too late?

I've tried emailing a couple of times, but I still can't use the Test Flight invite. It was sent to the email account I use for my principal account, and I can't connect it with the new account I set up. I tried just using it with my regular account, but I don't get the option to use the Japanese course.

I'd recommend getting another account, like me, this is my alpha account. Just to be safe.
