Unlike the website, the Duolingo app on Android doesn't display any stats for how many people are studying a language AFAIK. Thus, I was just wondering if anyone knows how many people are currently studying the two mobile-only courses, Japanese and Korean?

When I want to change a language on my phone (Android), it shows how many learners there are in each language. There it shows that Japanese has 316 k learners. It says nothing about the Korean course, though.

I think it displays the learner count once it reaches 100k.

My OP is slightly wrong: Android does say how many learners there are for each course, but, like yourself I've tried to reach level 2 in as many courses as possible, and once I've started a new one my phone just tells me a number of XP I have, instead of how many learners there are. Strange

The number of learners is shown when you change the language, that is when you press "add a course". When you are learning from English, it shows the numbers of other languages, but if you change to, for example, English from German, when you want to go back, it shows the number of the learners for all the courses from English.

I assume that number must be bunk in some way. For one it would imply that it's only getting learners at a rate maybe 50% higher than Swahili and Hungarian. Yes, it's mobile-only, but 80% of users are on mobile, so that's not enough to explain the difference. Also the 316K figure hasn't changed in at least a month.

It may well be wrong, but bear in mind Swahili and Hungarian use the Latin alphabet, and Hungarian especially has been around on here for much longer

Japanese was supposedly far and away the most-requested course for years. Also, I accounted for the extra time Hungarian has been out. It has twice the mooted number users while being out about three times the time. Hence 50% higher rate.
