Duolingo Stories :-)
I would just like to say THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR INVENTING DUOLINGO STORIES!!!!! :-)
As a language teacher, this is truly the best thing I have come across in a very long time and I am now recommending not just Duolingo but also these amazing multilingual stories to all of my students.
I would also like to know whether there will be any Chinese (Mandarin) stories in the future. Does anyone know?
Now I am going to revive my high school French with one of the stories. :-D
I know, right? Duolingo stories are awesome! I listen to them all the time to improve my listening and reading skills. The Duo team really outdid themselves with this amazing addition. I'm actually going to listen to one now... :)
You really should edit Doulingo to read Duolingo, just saying, hope you don't mind...
Stories in Mandarin would have to be easier than the existing ones (it's a more difficult to understand language), thus I'd put my money on "not soon". But some time into the future there will likely be stories in "all" languages (on the condition that the people over at Duolingo don't consider the stories feature to be a failure).
Really? Why? I've studied Mandarin formally for three years and self-study before that and yet I've never found it particularly difficult at all (to read and write, speaking is a different matter, haha) and there's a beautiful logic to It, actually for me, it's easier than French, but perhaps I'm just weird :-)
It takes a longer time to get the same proficiency in Mandarin compared to Portuguese / Spanish / German / French and the Mandarin course (correct me if I'm mistaken) also teaches you less compared to the other mentioned ones.
Well yeah, in some aspects Chinese is really straight forward / simple but as you mention yourself, some aspects are difficult too.
I don't think there will be stories in other languages than the first 5 (and even in Italian they don't have them yet)
I agree! I am trying to learn Mandarin and I would really love to be able to practice reading here instead of in other places (children's books from my library)
Didn't I? Hehehehe, yes, I teach English and German. Although, I did teach beginner's Italian to Canadian expats at a school in my town some years ago, too. :-)
I just want to say that I love Stories so much! Please never stop making them :)
I can't access the next episode of the Portuguese story Gato com botas. I have now done the second episode twice, hoping that would help, but the rest of the story is still locked.
Can someone please help!
Odd as 2 and 3 are in the same chapter. Try this direct link to it, maybe it will work: https://stories.duolingo.com/lessons/pt-o-gato-de-botas-3
