Plans to add Dutch stories?

Hello!

Are there any plans to add the stories feature for the Dutch language? I find that feature very useful for my portuguese, and would love to have it for my Dutch!

Any plans to add the feature for Dutch?

The stories are only there for the original languages,(English, Spanish, French & Portuguese) not for the incubator/volunteer added languages.

While there might be plans to add them to other languages, i wouldn't count on it. :-(

Pity, cause i like them a lot as well. (^.^)

Mijn fout; vanuit 't Engels zijn de verhalen in het Spaans, Frans, Portugees & Duits. (^.^)

Do you know why some languages get stories and why others don't?

Omdat die eerste talen zijn ontwikkeld door professoren. De andere taalcursussen die later zijn toegevoegd, zijn door vrijwilligers gemaakt.

.

Because those first languages were developed by professors. The other language courses that have been added later, were made by volunteers.

I have no information about this, but personally I doubt that Duolingo will add Dutch stories in the next few years.

Hey Simius, thanks for responding.

Is there a reasoning behind why some languages get stories and why other don't? Is it a matters of users per language?

Yes, the number of users is a large part of it. The most popular courses are developed in-house by Duolingo and therefore have features that volunteer-made course do not. The idea is that eventually these features will be expanded to all courses, but in practice that rarely happens.

Is there a precedent for that?

Does there need to be? Everything needs to start somewhere. I'm sure that the developers would love that people are interested enough by their platform to make a petition

Yes, I agree that Dutch stories should be added, but I thought Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Norwegian, Swedish, or Danish stories would be added first.
