Japanese going into beta in about 3 days!
An announcement by Hideki tells that Japanese is actually 99% ready!!! May 18th is the estimated release date. Thank you Contributors for making this happen! Check out the announcement https://incubator.duolingo.com/courses/ja/en/status
Yay! I'm so excited to be able to talk a little with my Japanese friend in a language he understands better! So excited! Thank you contributors!
Finally! I've been wanting to learn Japanese for years but never got around to it. Been waiting for this since I had my old account. Looking forward to this.
Indeed, it's coming very soon! Be prepared to jump right into the Hiragana! :)
I'm excited as I couldn't learn Japanese elsewhere in the internet. I hope it doesn't turn out as a disappointment.
