Japanese has reached 3 Million learners!
The Japanese course for English speakers has reached 3 Million learners! Congratulations to the Japanese team!
As the most requested course on Duolingo, I'm not surprised it's climbing fast! But still, WOW! :D
Am I correct in understanding that it currently ends at Olympics (for now, I suppose)?
Yes, for now the last two skills are Subculture and Olympics. Other courses on Duolingo have received updates over time. I don't think Japanese will be the exception. Those may or may not remain the last two skills, but 99.99% certain more content will be added somewhere to the tree over time. I would be shocked that wasn't the case. :)
I can confirm that a new Japanese tree may be on its way.
