10 new Spanish and Portuguese stories are now available at Duolingo Stories for your reading and listening pleasure!

The wait has been longer than usual, but your patience has been amply rewarded! The latest batch of stories are longer than ever before so there’s a lot to get your teeth sunk into this time around.

Give them a try and let us know what you think!

I've been waiting too long for new Portuguese stories! They are my favorite! I always enjoy to practice with them because they are funny, entertaining, and well-thinked! I don't know who should I thank for the ideas, but I just want to say he/she is a genius!

One of my many ideas is to incorporate the making of stories. We can share other stories in our native language, or we can translate some stories. As a writer, I would love to share my writing with other people while learning/translating a language of my own. Sometimes, I hope they can make this option available. Everyone would love it!

Keep on going with the good work!

I don't find it pleasant for my email inbox to fill up with a childish argument not related to the purpose of this forum. Let's get back to comments that Duolingo can use to decide whether to continue the development of stories, which are now in the lab. They are asking for our feedback - let's help them, by telling them what we like or don't like about the stories.

My thought on this is that most users on duolingo are English speakers learning other languages. And English has a lot of material out there. I don't know any outside resources for learning English, but if you ask about it in your language's discussion board I'm certain someone can point you in the right direction.

He meant that those new stories for Spanish and Portuguese will get translated into French and German. I know, it's a bit confusing the way he said it especially when the comment above is about excitedly waiting for Italian stories to come out :P.

Thank you, I am aware of them. I’ve done each of the French stories at least three times and count the days until the next ones arrive. My friend does the German ones as eagerly as I do mine, so I get excited for her too.

You haven't lost your progress - promise! It's still there, but it's not gold anymore. Since the Crowns update, you can advance through five levels for each category. Each level gets a little more difficult. Once you complete all five levels in a category, it will turn gold again.

Strongly recommend the following three books in the meantime:

Murray, Giles (Ed.) (2003). Breaking into Japanese Literature: Seven modern classics in parallel text. Tokyo: Kodansha.
Emmerich, Michael (Ed.) (2008). Read Real Japanese Fiction: Short stories by contemporary writers. Tokyo: Kodansha.
Murray, Giles (Ed.) (2007). Exploring Japanese Literature: Read Mishima, Tanizaki and Kawabata in the original. Tokyo: Kodansha.

The difficulty level of these might be a little bit beyond the level of the Duolingo course, but well-worth it for the intermediate level learner. The stories in the first book might be a bit easier than the rest.

I have really enjoyed the stores in Spanish so far, and have learned new vocabulary, too, so I am looking forward to reading these. Not sure length is a good thing though. What if I can't finish an entire story at one sitting? Can I put it aside and come back later, like any regular book?

Also I am curious about whether these stories will integrate with core Duolingo - i.e., will it earn experience points that contribute to the daily goal, and update the word strength?

The longer stories are split into multiple parts and each part typically takes around 5 or 6 minutes to complete. So you can complete one part and return later to continue with the rest. Each of the following parts contains a brief recap to remind you of what happened previously in the story.

You do earn XP via Stories and they do contribute to your daily goal.

It takes me more than five or six minutes to complete a section. I go over everything three times to make sure I understand every word and also listen to it again without looking at the sentences to see if I would understand it if I did not have the words right in front of me. Everybody learns at their own level, but it takes me about 30 minutes and sometimes more to complete a story with 3 sections, but I'm not complaining, because I enjoy the stories so much.

Thank you for the reply, Steve. I am glad to be informed that the stories are broken into 5-6 minute sections. I can easily repeat a section if needed, or come back later to complete the story.

For some reason, one story I read did not update my XP or give me credit toward the goal. Maybe I failed to do the final exercise or lost my internet connection or something. I am glad the stories are designed to do this. Now I plan to learn by reading entertaining stories instead of spending long and boring hours repeating skill sets.

I love the stories. I hope Duolingo keeps this method of learning. I would pay for this type of additional content.

What about word strength? I noticed some words in the stories that aren't present in the skill tree. Those words that are only in the stories don't seem to have been added to my Spanish word list, however. Is anything like that in the pipeline?

I personally love the stories. I hope they plan on continuing to periodically release more. My only complaint thus far is that they seem to reuse the same stories across languages (I know that makes sense for efficiency but I don't have to like it).

Hey, how are you? Thanks for getting the latest set of French stories in -- now they're up through Set 4. They look to be parallels of what already exists for stories in Spanish/Portuguese (which are up through Set 7 with your new release). Any idea when Sets 5, 6, and 7 will be translated for French?

Also: any "estimated time of arrival" for stories in Italian? :-)

I seem to have bitten off more than I can chew with books like Subjekt und Selbstmodell, L'Anti-Œdipe, and Storia della bruttezza. This will probably help a lot. How are the options for reading between Wi-Fi hotspots, and how do I get to these from the Android app?
