Are there any English stories?
I only see stories in Spanish, Portuguese, French, and German. What about English?
What does not make sense is investing stories in german, portuguese or french and avoid the english.
It makes economic sense if Duolingo's source of income is primarily tied to English-speaking communities learning other languages. I think I once heard they get funding from US states for helping schools in those states.
Why not in the language I want?
This is an experimental Duolingo Labs feature, meaning we are testing a project on a small scale to see how it does before investing time and money into expanding into all the languages/platforms, etc.
That is how Duolingo Labs projects work, as @karint mentioned in her Labs announcement post. We want to invite the community to help us try out new ideas and give you a glimpse of little projects we are working on—even if the idea is not yet fully fleshed out or available in their favorite language. We hope you all enjoy the early peek of these fun prototypes anyway!
I need english stories!! How many people are learning english? Think about It....
Yes! I think we totally need stories in English so that English students can get some practice beyond sentence level.
A mí también me gustarían escuchar historias en inglés!! Por favor!! Muchísimas personas aprenden inglés!! Necesitamos listenings en inglés!!! No puedo entender por qué solo los podemos escuchar en español, portugués....y el inglés????
