Is there an option for traditional Chinese?
I did the placement test in traditional (then deleted the course so I could focus on my other picks) and found no problems with getting the answers accepted, so I wonder if there's an option to switch the text to traditional generally.
I hope a moderator will reply to this post. I personally have used simplified and traditional characters, and I think so far they are using Mandarin Chinese (Simplified) with Pinyin. I hope they also release a traditional Chinese/Cantonese language for English speakers, but for now I cannot say if they will or will not release traditional Chinese. If you feel inclined to help make it a language, please see the following link to make an addition to Duolingo: https://incubator.duolingo.com
Currently the course teaches only Simplified Chinese, and Traditional characters are accepted throughout the course. :) But I too hope they will add the Traditional course too, eventually. ^^
