Duolingo doesn't have a dork mode for English speakers to learn Japanese by devteslain dontwatchanime

The reason for this that I've heard of - I have no expertise in linguistics, second language acquisition - is that Japanese can't be translated sentence by sentence without it resulting in a lot of gibberish due to some pronoun system thing or sumthing.

Duolingo is mostly fine for grammar, vocabulary, translation practice and sentence analysis. But to actually become conversant in a language needs lots of talking that preferably occurs over things you actually have a communicative need about, a lot of input by reading and listening in variety of registers and contexts and so on. I personally have seen much success, taking cue from that 'communicative need' criterion', by playing enormous amount of date simulators and needless to say it has also made me completely irresistible.
