9 hours....

Nine more hours until the Japanese course is released (I hope.) Are you guys excited? Are you gonna try it out? I plan on learning Japanese at some stage in my life however it seems like too big of a challenge for me right now. I plan on learning French, German and Swedish first then I might take on some Japanese, but what are your thoughts about it?

There isn't a Japanese discussion page yet so I have to post it here, sorry if it bothers you guys :P

Yes I'm so excited!! ^-^ Japanese is one of my favorite languages! I'm studying it with books and memrise but I'm sure also Duolingo will help me! :)

I think Japanese is amazing too. Duolingo is probably the most helpful language learning site in my opinion so it's amazing they're offering the course :D

I'm very, very excited! I've been waiting for Japanese to pop up on Duolingo since I started learning it a year and a half ago. I think it'll be a great way to improve my vocabulary, grammar, and writing ability and to prepare myself for my Japanese immersion programs in the summer.

Have they mentioned it's coming out at midnight GMT? If not, you'll need to wait another 17-21 hours on top of those 9.

Good point. I had forgot to think about other timezones, if i think about it now it will most likely come out at the PST midnight.

would they teach japanese font style as well ?


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

I don't really understand what you mean by "font style." What do you mean by it?

I have no clue about it. Only time will tell I guess

They've already added it


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

That's true, but it's not in Beta yet.

I keep going back and forth only because I don't see how I can use it in my life right now, but I do think it would be interesting.
