This might have been a good category to make a "bonus skill" that you buy with lingots like in the French, German, and Spanish courses. Then, people who are interested in this topic could learn more about it (and the module could even be expanded for their learning pleasure) while those who aren't wouldn't need to do it to complete the course.

In any case, I hope the Japanese course gets expanded. It is much shorter than almost all of the other courses.

They might do that in the future, but it's still in beta. A lot of things seem to be barely working right now.

okay, dressing up as a maid when you're not is subcultural, sure... having a maid at your house, wouldn't that just be being wealthy?

7/29/2017, 4:20:17 PM

Ah, but isn't wealth a subculture in and of itself?

This lesson is literally called subculture and those are japanese subculture things. Also duolingo said they made all the beginning lessons more practical and left all the fun things to the end. Including the Olympics since Japan is getting it in 2020. So I think you can survive a few funny sentences.
