Why can't I have Traditional chinese?
They don't let you have traditional.I do not know simplified but I know traditional.
If you use Google Chrome, there is a free browser extension that allows you to switch between simplified and traditional in DuoLingo Chinese lessons!
I wish I could remember who first shared the link to give them full credit (I'm so thankful!!) But the genius who made the extension is named Robin Card.
Hopefully this link will work:
(Some reviews complain about lag, but I haven't had any trouble!)
Happy learning :-)
Edit: I found a post that Robin Card made on Duo-- if you like the extension, please let him know! :-)
They made the course for Simplified Chinese only, since it is geared mostly towards the Mandarin spoken in Mainland China. But the option to use traditional should be implemented, since other countries don't use simplified.
