Irish Words?

Irish was my first duolingo course, but I recently started Spanish as well.

I notice that Spanish (and presumably others as well) have a "Words" section that is conspicuously missing from Irish. Are there any plans to add this to the Irish section? I think it would be helpful.

My apologies if this has been asked elsewhere. If it has, a link will be more than sufficient.

Irish is fresh out of Beta, as you probably know. It'll probably come after the remaining bugs are crushed and errors fixed.

I had assumed it would be something like that but I wasn't sure what the progression of things normally was.

Thanks for the responses.

The thing is Irish is the first course for English speakers out of Beta. So we're sorta still setting precedent here.

But now it's 4 years later and no Words section :-(

Duolingo only ever offered the Words tab for language courses that were developed in-house, as far as I know. Other languages developed by volunteer contributors in the incubator don't have a words tab, and I believe that the tab was removed for some users at some point in one of the many A/B tests that Duolingo does.

There are workarounds available for accessing the Words tab in Irish, but the simplest approach is to access your profile on, and click on the Progress link. There's a Words tab there.
