Does anyone know if there will be Duolingo Stories in more languages besides Spanish and Portuguese? I was having a look at them in Spanish and they look awesome! I am pretty sure I could strength my skills a lot using those stories. Maybe they posted something about this before, but I missed it, so my apologies about that.
I would appreciate any kind of (official) information.
- You should release it in French/German/Russian/The language I am learning!
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. =]
I eagerly await Duolingo stories in Italian. For now I am relying on Ollie Richards' short stories for Italian beginners. Very helpful!
