It would be nice if it were possible to not be asked to go into another language 'while you wait' for Japanese to come to the web as we now have this forum. This would be a sensible redirection as someone using the app on their phone would likely come here to ask a question but then be asked to start studying another language. If I come here while I have the Japanese course up on my phone, it's really unlikely I want to talk about Spanish or something. It's also especially annoying if I want to go to courses learnt from another language. The Catalan for Spanish speakers link takes me to that same redirection for courses in English if the Japanese course is still the most recent one used on my phone. It means to get to Catalan on the web, I need to chose an unrelated language in English and then go to the courses in Spanish or I have to remember to get out of Japanese and go into another unrelated course from English so that the Catalan link will work normally. I realize this doesn't affect everyone, but the general redirection does, so I would recommend a change.

Strongly agree with this. Right now I'm split between an old iPhone, my current Android phone, and my desktop- the redirect is annoying on Android (and it is not lost on me that "1-2 weeks" will be up in 5 days) but it's nowhere near as jarring as it is on PC. Basically redirecting to any part of the site other than the redirect screen we have now coming from Japanese on mobile would be preferable IMO.

I agree. The redirect is just never where I want to be. Anywhere else would be more likely.

Yes, I find it to be inconvenient as well, but they will change this when they release the web version (whenever they do), which is sometime later this year. This timeframe is not very specific, so I'm assuming it will happen in at least a few months from now. Until then, I guess we just have to wait.
