Norwegian on Duolingo android app?

Guys, I truly love you for creating Norwegian course as well here, I can not describe my joy!! :)

But tell us, the app for phones, tablets, it does not support yet the Norwegian, right?

May 28, 2015



The Norwegian course is in beta, which means the current launch is a "test" version where users are trying it out and reporting any errors. Whenever a new course begins beta testing, it is first released to the website, as multi-platform support is a recipe for more errors and extra work for those involved in creating the course (both the course's volunteers and the Duolingo staff). Once the course becomes more stable, as measured by the average number of reports per 100 users, it will be released to the app via an update. Based on previous courses, this should take a few weeks. I think the most recent beta launch, Turkish for English speakers, took around a month to become available on the apps.

In the meantime, you can access the course on your mobile device through your web browser. There's a mobile version of the site that looks very close to the app and supports languages as soon as they're released to beta. You can also switch to the desktop version (while still on your mobile browser) if you'd like to help out the course creators by reporting errors (the report a problem button isn't in the mobile version of the site), but it's a bit clunkier to use.

Hope this helps!


Yes, thank you, you were more than helpful! It's not a problem, I guess I have net everywhere so when I study on the move, I'll just use Duolingo online directly from the website on my tablet. I tried it, it works of course, quite good. I just needed to know is it something wrong with my app of there still is no Norwegian available there. Thank you so much for the detailed answer again. Tusen takk! :)


it always takes a few weeks after a new course is released into beta phase for the app version to become available.


Well, thank you :)
