Japanese !!! countdown !!!
Am I the only one who already access to the course? I updated the iOS version (unfortunately, it's only available there) of Duolingo around noon PDT, and I've had full access to the Japanese course since then. I was surprised that I didn't see at least 10 posts titled "JAPANESE IS HERE!!!" or the like, but instead saw no activity in the discussion about the course. Oh well, I guess I'll enjoy it by myself until it's available to others or until people discover that an update is available.
One of the contributors explained it in the updates section. Wait, I'll go get a link.
There it is!
