JAPANESE STORY MODE (Labs in general)
WHY IS JAPANESE NOT HAVE ANY LABS FUNCTIONALITY. For some reason, Japanese (now the number 4 language on the platform) keeps getting the shaft compared to other languages, like Portuguese. FIX THIS, Duolingo
All of these additional functions are contributed by volunteers. The team already has their hands full with the new tree, and if you're really desperate for all these extras, consider joining them.
There are also external sites/apps you can use for Japanese reading material, such as PIBO Reader for Japanese childrens' picture books or NHK NewsEasy for Japanese news with simpler vocabulary/furigana and comprehension tests at the end of every article.
Everything in good time, let's see what happens after this new Japanese update they've got planned but yeah, I would like this too.
I agree! I was looking around on the story lab and was a bit let down due to the lack of Japanese content on there. If anyone has any information on the subject, that'd be useful :/
