Traditional characters for Chinese

I started learning Chinese with traditional characters because my books were from Taiwan and I was learning Hong Kong Cantonese. (I personally think that it is easier to learn traditional characters first, then simplified characters can be picked up and recognized more easily because it does quite work the other way around). It would be great if traditional characters would also be available for Duolingo!

Robin Card: I made an extension for Chrome that uses traditional characters for Duolingo (video inside) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u_KTmfXUO9c&feature=youtu.be

This is the link for the Chrome Extension:



Thank you so much! Now we need to get them to put Cantonese on here as well!


Is there some version for android devices?
