Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese

It seems like Duolingo finally added Chinese yay!

But there's one problem that its in my mind, it's all in Simplified Chinese (of course, hence the China flag)? I don't really mind that i'm learning Chinese Simplified. But i think that many people would like to learn Traditional Chinese instead of Simplified Chinese, including me.

Now, i'm not saying that we should add another course just for Traditional Chinese, i'm saying we should add a button or some kind of switch to convert Simplified characters into Traditional characters.

For example; Simplified Chinese ( o) Traditional Chinese (All the characters will be in Traditional Characters) Simplified Chinese (o ) Traditional Chinese (All the characters will be in Simplified Characters)

I hope people can agree with me on this :) (Please don't take this personal <3)

You can input traditional Characters as answers with no problem, which is what I did.

BTW on the English course for speakers of Chinese, there was a settings option to display traditional that worked most of the time. So, it might happen on this course, but I don't think it will be anytime soon.

The course teaches Simplified, though it should take Traditional characters for answers.

I think we are learning Simplified Chinese.

I mean, traditional Chinese MUST be here in Duolingo but the thing is that Chinese course is just a beta, so there's no rush on this. The same happens with people who wants to learn Cantonese immediately, we need to be patient! :D
