Duolingo Stories

Why are they only in Spanish or Portuguese? I am learning French so they are not much help to me.

Here's what staff had to say to people who ask this question:

We would love to! As is likely with any project in Labs, there is a tiny but mighty team behind it, and the staff involved use the resources available to them to test a concept. So it is safe to assume that the plan is to just keep polishing it in Spanish and Portuguese to see if Stories is successful in its goals. If it is, it could launch as a full-on feature and then expand to other languages. Also, in addition to spending resources in an experiment, the more languages we add at this stage, the more work (and time) it would take to refine it. These requests are a great sign to us though—shows us that you are excited about the feature and can’t wait to use it. =]

Perhaps because there happened to be DL staff proficient in ES and PT available to develop it at the right time.

Staff answered that question:

Q: Why Portuguese and Spanish though?

A: A prototype cannot be too picky. Those were the resources available to the team working on Stories when developing it.
