Stories available on iOS — and what's next
Stories, Stories everywhere!
Great news, everyone: the beloved Duolingo Stories you have been enjoying on the Duolingo website are now available on our app on iPhone and, as we finish releasing this feature on iOS, we are setting our sights on rolling it out on Android. We are close to being able to do that in the coming weeks, and hope you are as excited as we are!
Where is the language I am learning, it would be great to see it on Stories!
Ah, remember when Stories was only available in Portuguese? Now you can enjoy them in Spanish, French, German — and also in English from Portuguese, Chinese, and Spanish! We’ve been working on bringing everyone all the Stories so more and more people can benefit from them. We <3 them too.
Have you given Stories a try yet? Any favorites so far? Let me know in the comments!
Stories stories everywhere - um, not quite I'm afraid. We Italian learners are extraordinarily patient, still waiting, but happy for those with Stories!
EXTRAORDINARILY patient. And all the other languages that want stories. At least I can do German stories, but that’s not my focus language.
Assolutamente! Mia sorella studia spagnola e lei mi racconta che le storie sono fantastiche! Maybe we should write our own in italiano.
I am learning chinese... No stories? ): I would love having English -> Chinese stories, but I don't they exist. Can I write my own somehow?
How do you comment on everything? I mean I see you comments on almost every post.
I have iOS and cannot access the newer Spanish stories either. Anxiously waiting!
I wish the stories gave you the ability to go back and listen to the entire story at once instead of just one sentence at a time. This would be a nice feature to have.
We're currently experimenting with new experiences during replay. Stay tuned!
I also would appreciate to choose the speed the same way like in other parts of DL - manually. Not twice full speed and then slowly.
Same, I would love it if the audio of the stories could be made available (on iTunes, etc). so we can listen to the stories and train our ears.
Hey Cindymayberger! :) I LOVE listening to the stories in French! :) I go back to do them over and over to get myself speaking more quickly along with them or after them! :) Unfortunately, my fave so far "Follow The Arrows" is stuck and I reported it but they haven't restored it yet. That story is the one I found the most "fun and mysterious" for the beginner level. I hope they get it working again. :) I'm SOO GLAD that more people will be able to listen to these in a different language! :) This is WONDERFUL! I applaud Duolingo for moving forward in this direction! GREAT job! :) I do my lessons via the Web so,I don't use the app. I'm just impressed with all the updates that Duo is doing for more of it's learners! The cunning owl never ceases to amaze! :) Good luck going forward! Here's to all the languages that are available and that are coming on and to the owl being more and more content as more users Enjoy language learning! :) Bonne Chance Cindymayberger! :)
It's great that you're redoing Stories for speaking practice! And we're glad you're such a fan of this feature overall. That said, I'm sorry to hear that "Follow the Arrows" is stuck!? We'll look into it right away...
Hi, "Follow the arrows" works for me just now on Google Chrome browser. I also really appreciate the Stories. I hope it wiil be also in English for Chech learners, for my wife, soon.
I am re-learning some French with DuoLingo. And I love the stories! My only complaint is that I wish you could add some more stories in the easier levels. I have gotten into the more difficult ones and while I know I need a little more difficult content in order to learn, I sure would love to see some more stories added to some of the more elementary levels! The stories are really helping me a lot, I feel. I'm so glad you offer them now. Thanks.
We hear you and are working on writing more Stories for earlier in the course.
Wonderful! I love the stories... they are a great break from the usual lessons. I'm so glad I can access on my phone now, too.
Thank you, DuoLingo! =D
