Japanese?

I see more languages have been added to the incubator, but still no Japanese. Does anyone know why this is, or when we can expect to see Japanese avaliable to be developed? I understand it takes lots of time for these hardworking volunteers to develop a course. I just find it frustrating how limited to options to develop new courses are. Thank you for any answer you can provide!

Good news! Japanese its on its way. English for Japanese is already in phase 2. After that course finishes they will start building the reverse course. You can follow which courses Duolingo is building by going to http://incubator.duolingo.com :)

Japanese is in the incubator....

Japanese learning English is in Beta, and English learning Japanese is being developed.

To clarify, Japanese for English learners (which is what the original poster is interested in) is NOT in the incubator currently. It is possible that information is available on it elsewhere, but it does not show up in the list of any of the phases.

@Noderoom, that's true. Right now Duolingo is starting with English for x learners and once those finish will be building x language for English speakers. The Incubator will let you see once Eng for Jpn moves into Phase 3. It is sometime around then that Jpn for Eng will enter Phase 1. :)

Why is this being downvoted? I looked through the incubator and managed to track down English for Japanese, but there is no information on Japanese for English. Seems like a fair question...

Sometimes people down vote if you make a discussion without first using the search bar or looking through recent discussions. My guess is that is why. It happened to me 186 days ago when I asked about Japanese. I wouldn't take it personally. It's just one type of communication :)

I'm not one of the downvoters, but probably because people are tired of seeing the exact same questions being asked on a daily basis.

Thanks for all of the replies. I did not realize this had been asked so often, I appologize If this post annoyed you. I had been following the incubator though, and when I saw that new languages were added, I wondered why Japanese had not been.
