Will there be a traditional Chinese course? (Either from English or from Simplified?)

Would be very useful for people wanting to go to Taiwan.

ChineseSkill and HelloChinese has a setting to change the characters into traditional, However there is a Duolingo Google extension that changes the characters into traditional here:

Traditional is superior to simplified except when it comes to writing. Can never remember how to write the damn characters. I can read traditional better than simplified though.

I started familiarizing myself with the differences between Traditional and Simplified characters when I started developing interest in Chinese while visiting HK and East Asia in 2013 and easily recognized the differences. But since I started learning Chinese on Duo and other apps I fixated myself on Simplified these days and learn mostly Simplified now.

I wish! I've mainly learned simplified over the course of the last four and a half years or so, but I wish I had started with traditional. I hear it's easier to go traditional-->simplified than the other way around, and I can attest to it.

It is extremely easy to learn traditional Chinese once you know how to read simplified. A common misconception about simplified and traditional Chinese is that they are completely different. The only thing that is different is how the characters are written. And, 80% of the simplified Chinese characters are the EXACT same as the traditional ones. Once you know the basics of traditional Chinese, you can usually guess the rest. I feel that the best way to learn to read traditional Chinese is immersion.
