Is the Japanese word bank workaround gone?
Can't seem to use the old workaround:
"Step 1: Set language to something that has a Words tab (e.g. Spanish)
Step 2: Open a new tab and make sure you are on the Discussion section
Step 3: Go back to original tab and change your course to Chinese/Japanese/Korean. You could even do this on a separate device
Step 4: Go to the tab that is on Discussion and still shows that you are on the course with a Words tab, then click on the Words tab and it should show you the "secret" words of the Chinese/Japanese/Korean course.
The trick is you have to access the words from Discussion or you will get the 404"
Anyone else able to access word tab in one of the Duolingo non-original languages (i.e. not spanish, italian etc).
Ah. I knew this would happen soon. It's because Duolingo are rolling out the forum upgrade. My testmoogle account is still on the old version, but one of my other Duolingo accounts got switched over to the upgraded version of the forums today too. People who've been switched over to the upgraded version of the forums can no longer use the "Discussion" page for the trick.
However, the "Discussion" page wasn't the only page you can use for this trick. Luckily, at least one of the other pages currently still works for it. Here's an updated step-by-step for you. ^^
Step 1. Switch to Spanish course.
Step 2. Click "Add a new course", which should take you to this page: https://www.duolingo.com/courses
Step 3. Duplicate tab. (So you now have two web browser tabs, both of which on the Spanish course and both viewing the "Add a new course" page.)
Step 4. Current tab: Switch to Japanese course. (Can close this tab once it loads.)
Step 5. Other tab: Click "Words".
