Duolingo Stories for Italian
Duolingo Stories are wonderful. The best innovation in duolingo. :-) They are already available for several languages, but not (yet) for Italian. Does anyone know when it is planned? Please let the duolingo team know here, if you would like it provided!
Although the stories are the same across the different languages...at least the German and French ones that I have completed...they are enjoyable and I think they are a great way to improve idiomatic vocabulary. I certainly hope they get extended to include Italian and other languages.
That would be terrible if they're the same. I compared the French and Portuguese ones, and they're different. When my Italian is strong enough (and once they launch Italian stories), I hope it's different. Otherwise, it defeats the purpose if I already know the story.
I've been doing them in all languages currently available (German, French, Spanish, Portuguese), and many stories are identical from one language to the next. I agree that it would be better to have completely different sets in each language, but that might slow down Duolingo's rollout considerably, so I'd rather they just make Stories available in more languages now and then expand to a different set for each language.
(I've also sometimes found it useful to see the very different ways of expressing the same sentence in each language.)
Some of the Portuguese and French stories are the same unfortunately. Nevertheless, I think these stories are a great way to think in the language.
Just based on the number of users for a particular language, Italian would be next. This excludes Asian languages.
I have read and enjoyed all the Spanish and Portuguese stories! Are there plans to provide stories in Italian? This is a great method to increase listening comprehension!
Yes, having Italian stories would be very helpful. I was disappointed to see that there weren't any.
Yes, it would be great to have Italian stories next please. Grazie DL in anticipo!
STILL no stories in Italian despite all these requests! Does anyone at Duolingo read these discussion comments???
