A message from Team Korean

    Hello Duolinguists

    as of 2017-08-04, the Korean for English speakers course is 96 percent complete (1708/1787) We hope to launch somewhere around late-August to early-September. An exciting news for you all, Korean will support the all new character challenge initially developed for Japanese. However, would mean that Korean will initially be released mobile only due to constraints currently existing on web for character challenges. However, the web version will be released as soon as character challenges are implemented, so no worries on that part. Thank you for your understanding. We are working hard to bring you the best Korean course in the history of mankind, and hopefully we do not disappoint! :)

    This message is also posted on the Incubator. However, due to the nature of the message, I felt it warranted another post. Team Korean values communication much. :) Thank you all for your support!

    If any person from Team Korean reads this, can you please post the notes on a secondary website and post the link in the forum? I've lost all interest in Japanese because I don't have the notes to support my learning of such a complicated (different) language. It would be nice to read the notes for each section in order to obtain a better understanding of the grammar.

      Awesome! Thank you for giving us a Korean course, Team Korean! I highly doubt anyone who takes the future Korean course will be disappointed. Thank you so much for your work in the Incubator. So many people have been waiting so long and so desperately for this course. Totally awesome that it will soon be released in beta.


      I agree, this warrants a post in the forums. Great news!! I'm looking forward to seeing this course when it releases, and I know you're super conscientious and doing a great job. Thank you!!!


      Are you going to learn Korean?


      Do you happen to have any information of how far Duolingo is with implementing the character challanges on the web?


      Does this mean no typing in Korean then? I was personally looking forward to typing it out with duolingo to get use to the keyboard more :(. If I remember correctly in the Japanese course you only tap words to form the sentences and only type English out. Sure there is memrise on web, but I don't care for the timed aspect when practicing typing lol.

      I am still excited though! 감사합니다!


      You do indeed remember correctly. Sadly, the lack of typing in Japanese and lack of tips and notes make it very hard for me to learn, at least for the moment. It's currently on my back burner. =(


      Thank you for bringing this to our attention!
