Please a Japanese section!!! :)
I would love to learn Japanese on this awesome site. Can any one agree?
Japanese would be difficult in this format. There are three different alphabets in common usage, not to mention romanji (latin script). You would have to have drop down boxes for EVERY character in EVERY alphabet for people not using Japanese keyboard layouts.
It would be so much easier to add Romance, Germanic, Uralic and even Slavic languages.
I think a lot of people have asked this already. It may not get put up at all. Even if it does, it will be a long time coming, due to Japanese being written in kanji, romaji, katakana and hiragana. If you want to learn Japanese now, many of my friends have praised this website called Memrise. Apparently it's almost as good as Duolingo and would probably be a good place to go in the interim.
I agree. It's why I came here, it's the only language I want to learn right now. But I'm doing the French course to help out with beta testing.
I know the written Japanese is a problem, but couldn't we use the English alphabet for input, like a phonetic script, even though we'd be reading it in kanji etc? I just saw the last reply, about Memris, I will try that
