Please create Duolingo stories in Korean!

I am sure that Korean language learners would love to read korean written stories. For it would help a lot in understanding sentence structure and being fluent. Please, create Duolingo stories in Korean.

I am sorry, I should have made it clear... I am a fan of a K-pop group. Congrats on your achievement! I visited S. Korea last year and it was beautiful.

thanks! Where did you go in Korea? I have been to Seoul, Daegu, and Pusan for the most part. Pusan was very pretty. I would like to check out Jeju-do at some point too.

It is the name of the fans of a Kpop group. The "Army" is their fans.

Unfortunately, the course is still in beta and only has 2 contributors who are volunteers.

It is unlikely suddenly we will have more volunteers to assist. The contributors are working really hard already.

Where can I sign up to volunteer? I am a native of Korea. (Mind my level 9, I just tried out the test out skills only)

To volunteer to help with course creation, the usual procedure is through the incubator page of the corresponding language here. I don't think they have an open call right now, but you can always try to be in their database. Note that to be selected, they have to "see" through your application that you have the right commitment and knowledge of the different languages. Saying "I like kpop" usually does not qualify to create a high quality course. Saying "you have C2 level in English and linguistic training in Korean" will probably increase your chances.

To volunteer for the Duolingo stories, I'd contact Duolingo directly. For now, I don't think they have worked with volunteers for this. All the translations are done in house by the Duolingo team (maybe reaching out directly to natives around them). Not sure though. Just a guess from my side.

Pretty much, is anyone a BTS army? I actually love Korean, and it would be a awesome idea to create Korean stories. It would help many learners. So yasssss.
