Quand sera-t-il des histoires francaises?

Je suis heureux qu'il y ait des histoires espagnoles et portugaises dans le laboratoire. Avons-nous bientot des histoires francaises?

(I am glad that there are Spanish and Portuguese stories in the lab. Will we have French stories soon?)

The short answer is that nobody knows yet if there will ever be French stories. Even Duolingo doesn't know. The latest communication is that there has been updates to the Spanish and Portuguese stories. (See the latest stick for more info.) Stories is a trial and experiment that is being tested in two languages only. If they decide to continue, it will probably be a slow process to expand and roll out to other languages.

In the meantime, I'd encourage you to look for articles, exercises, and other material at your level on the web.

Oh, sure. Just hoping to encourage it. Other sources that I've found include the Radio France app for Android (where a political talk show hosted by Jean-Michel Aphatie is interesting) the French In Action videos on the Annenberg website, Quebecois news radio, and working through Babbel.com (which seems a nice supplement to Duolingo). Oh, and of course, the Michel Thomas cds and the Paul Noble cds.

There are a lot of resources out there. I'm just hoping to encourage Duolingo to think about expanding learning opportunities in French. That's all.

Thanks for the recommendations. If you take a look here, it seems clear that Duolingo is aware of the interest. https://www.duolingo.com/comment/23601543

Hopefully, if all goes well, this will do well and eventually expand to other languages.
