Azerbaijani course on Duolingo
I recently applied for the course "English for Azerbaijani speakers". The Duolingo team replied to me and said that once the course appears in the incubator, they will let me know if I was qualified as a contributor.
If you speak both English and Azerbaijani, please apply for the course. Write about yourself, your language knowledge and more.
We can do this! I know that Azerbaijani speakers learn English from Turkish or Russian here. I learned it from Turkish :( Why do we have to learn English from another language other than our mother tongue?
Thanks. Its also good to see a post for a course teaching English to people instead of the reverse. While an Azerbaijani for English speakers would be nice, it is much more helpful for an Azerbaijani speaker to know English than the reverse (not trying to insult the Azerbaijani language, but English is a global language and important economically in a way Azerbaijani isn't)
I would really love to learn it, doesn't matter if from English, Russian or Turkish. I really hope it appears in the incubator sometime soon. :/
i was looking about azerbaijani to english language first. but i found turkish to english. i can help you from azerbaijan to english.
I wish there was a Azerbaijani course for Turkish speakers, but many people use reverse tree to study it. I hope it will soon come out :)
I really want to learn Azerbaijani but there are so few resources out there! It's a shame because it seems like such a beautiful language.
Thanks, I want to know my language better! Because I know only Russian and English. Thank you! :-)
Mən də ingiliscə danışa bilirəm, və həm də kursu düzəltmək üçün müraciət etmişəm
It is end of June 2019 and we still don't have Azerbaijani course in Duolingo. Azerbaijani is spoken by around 23 million+ people around the world. It is one of the Turkic languages. The only turkic language in Duolingo is Turkish.
I think we should keep applying to incubator as contributor. It seems to be happen only way.
I would like to know how different these two languages (Azerbaijani and Turkish)are?
You're totally right... you have the right to learn English from your mother tongue, I hope your application will be successful, and many other Azerbaijani/English speakers join you :-)
I wish you success. Since Prosinecki lead your team I even more wish you success. :)
So, the errors that you made are (not a lot):
I recently applied for English for Azerbaijani speakers. (((Course not needed) or you could say the English for Azerbaijani speakers course)more formal)
Edit: how you handled it is fine.
THE Duolingo team replied to me.
I learnED it from Turkish.
Those are all of the errors.
Thank you for the reply. I'm not fluent in English. I'm intermediate and I'm still learning the language :)
I wish you find team for discussing whole stuff about Azerbaijani → English course! Especially I want to recomend using the search through the forums bar for "Azerbaijani" word. Perhaps there were the posts about this yet.
Thank you for the reply. I searched it and found nothing. That's why I posted this discussion :) But maybe there will be some people after this discussion that is eager to contribute to the course.
HI ... it's a great start ... congratulations. But the goal should be a course that its target language is Azerbaijani and teaches Azerbaijani for English speakers. But as I said it's a good start. I speak Tabrizi and I don't know how to read and write Azerbaijani ... but if there is anything I can do ... just tell me.
Thank you for the reply :) . If I'm not mistaken, in order to create Azerbaijani course we must create English course first.
man engilisi for azerbaijani speakers da sabtinam eladim . chokh tashakkur eliram zahmatunnan . amma man ozum faghat biraz danisha biliram okhumakh va yazmigin garah orgasham .... buna khatiridi ki duolingodan darkhast eladim azerbaijani coursun goysun ta man ozum da orjasham ...
ginada sagh ol. man khabarlara muntaziram
I'd love Azerbaijani for English speakers! <3 That upside down e is the most beautiful letter ever.
Thanks for the reply :) Bye the way 'Ə' is pronounced like 'a' in 'can', 'lack'.
I am a native English speaker who is proficient in Azerbaijani. I had previously applied to work on an "Azerbaijani for English speakers" course, but hadn't thought of the "English for Azerbaijani speakers" course. I just applied to work on that one too! İnşAllah we can begin soon! :)
If I'm not mistaken, in order to create Azerbaijani course, we must create the reverse course first.
has Azerbaijani for English speakers reached anywhere? I'm really interested in completing my Azerbaijani.
is it in duolingo?
I have no idea when it will get to the top of Duolingo's list. It is unclear how many contributors are necessary, plus Duolingo has other criteria they use to decide what courses to develop.
I've signed up to contribute to/moderate both, but all I've heard is the same email Javidan_A received.
To get English-Azerbaijani and Azerbaijani-English courses up and running, we need: -Several people who are fluent in both to sign up to be contributors/moderators. -People who are interested in taking the courses to start asking for them.
Hey there! I speak English fluently and Azeri moderately so. Where can I sign up as a contributor?
I would for sure love to see Azerbaijani happen on Duolingo. It's hard to find a pretty good course on it.
It'd also be interesting to get Azerbaijani on here for English speakers after!
It has helped me. Grammatically it's very similar, although not identical by any means and a lot of the vocabulary is the same.
Almost every Azerbaijani speakers know, Turkish, because of the similarities of the two languages. So yes, it will help a lot.
I have applied too, but i dont understand why they ignore our thoughts.
Hello dear friend. As I'm intrested in learning Azerbaijani would you please let me know how can I learn it. I know Iranian Turkey as my parents first language us Turkey I'm familiar with it. In fact I can understand but can't speak!
