Japanese for English Speakers
Would love to be able to learn Japanese with Duolingo!
Japanese for English speakers would be awesome to have on Duolingo. I signed up to learn Spanish first and Japanese second. Im going to be teaching workshops in Japan in the upcoming year and strongly believe in the efficacy of learning a foreign language this way.
Wish they would get more on this, too. It's got to be one of the more popular languages that people want to learn. Not seeing a Japanese for English in the incubator at all though...
so where is the Japanese course for English speakers in Duolingo? I would love to learn
It's true it would be awesome, and they will normally make the course, but first the "English for Japanese course" will have to promovate to stage 3 of the incubator. Happy you want to learn a new language!
Not necessarily. :-) Currently, we have English-for-Russian in Stage 2 and Russian-for-English in Stage 1, for example. But I think the first course does have to be reasonably stable in beta before they start the reverse course.
First time I looked into duolingo was to see if they offered the Japanese course. 悲しい :(
It would be awesome, because I looking for a good apps like Duolingo for Japanese, soit if be here, I'll be very happy! ^^
It's clear that there is a demand for Japanese for English Speakers. That not need be debated. What is challenging is that it is one of the harder languages to teach. As a written language, it has a number of different scripts, each with their own multiple meanings, though the introductory grammar and spoken word is not too demanding. What remains to be debated is how this will be funded, for it needs native speakers with a passion to put this together, and the skills to interleave learning in the different written scripts. Mondly, a paid service, is an obvious model. Is it possible for the Japanese government - or some Japanese entrepreneur - to fund this open source exercise? And what are the Duolingo protocols about progressing such a suggestion?
Yes, I have trying to learn japanese by myself for almost 2 years now! By putting Japanese as one of the curriculars would be an unimaginable asset for me!
I also have been hoping for that too. My main goal is to learn the native languages of all the major car brands in the United States. I am working on German and Spanish and eventually I will get to Italian and Swedish, but I need Japanese and South Korean as well if I want to be more marketable for the Automotive industry. I plan to be an automotive design engineer and I would need to be able to communicate with the other engineers in the native countries.
Since Japanese to English is still in beta, it might be a little while before they start working on the reverse though. Well, I got plenty to work on in the meantime.
I can't wait to learn Japanese I'm checking duolingo every 10 seconds, and it said 64 percent so far I'm still studying Spanish.
Yo no puedo Espera. :)
Still waiting on the Japanese for English speakers course. Where could it be hiding?
If you go to https://incubator.duolingo.com/courses/en/ja/status it shows the status as released from Beta. But it isnt available to select anywhere. Even Klingon is available for English Speakers! Is there a reason it says released from Beta, but isnt available, even though other lower phase languages appear in the lists?
You're looking at the wrong incubator program, that one is "English for Japanese Speakers"
This is the one you're after: https://incubator.duolingo.com/courses/ja/en/status
It is still in Phase 1.
"Alvarez told the Trib that Duolingo expects to launch a Japanese course for English speakers in May in response to high demand."

Take this for what you will. I too would like to learn Japanese.
(sorry about errors, my Japanese is pretty basic)
YesYEs, I been waiting for this course since ever!! Why hasn;t anyone done this yet?
I am completely agree. I'm Spanish speaker and I'm interesting in Japanese for English speaker. Because I will be useful for learning Japanese and also for learning English.
I would love to learn Japanese, I've been looking for Japanese to show up on Duo in the "hatching stage" for almost a year, but it has never showed up. We totally need Japanese for English speakers. I so want to learn Japanese!
