Chinese Alpha Testers: Can we post sentences?

I remember when I first filled out the form to apply to be a Chinese alpha tester that it stated that alpha testers are not allowed to give out information about the course. Does that mean we are not allowed to use the "Discuss" feature to discuss sentences?

So far, my experience as an alpha tester for Mandarin Chinese has been terrific, and I'm really excited to see my mom's native language on Duolingo. I'm very impressed and I can't wait to see it released into beta soon.

There’s an email address given in the notification email you received, to report feedback or questions. If you want you can write to the course developers and ask them directly what kind of information alpha testers are allowed to disclose.


Thanks for testing, and for asking!

We prefer if testers don't discuss the specific sentences they encounter in the course publicly until it launches. Alpha Testers can send their feedback via the report button or email chinese-feedback@duolingo.com to help our team improve the content before it's released to everyone :)


Trying to use the discussion feature results in a 404 error, presumably because the Chinese forum does not yet exist.

    I'm not too sure, but I am really excited to test it. I know there's a report button, as well as the email that you can use.


    I am really excited too! I think you can, I'm not exactly sure
