Mongolian for English Speakers

I'll cut to the chase and ask, I am the only one who would like to this in the future?

Now for what would have been the pretense. Ever since I was a little kid, I've always had a fascination with east Asia. Japan and China mostly, but I've found countries in Indochina quite interesting, as well as the Korea's. But recently, I've been looking at Mongolia's history, culture, geography, ect. and have become very interested in learning the language and visiting the country and would like to see a course for it here on Duolingo. Your thoughts?

Hi all, I am really happy here in Duolingo . I am Mongolian. People say that Mongolian language is difficult to learn, specially pronunciation. Probably it's their right. I know many foreigners who speaks Mongolian very well. If you really want, you can learn Mongolian. Just make it happen. I think that our culture and history will make you wonder.

I have always wanted Mongolian! If it gets to the incubator, maybe be a contributor?!

May 14, 2019

I'll add my voice here. I've been rooting for Mongolian on Duolingo for a while now, particularly because my girlfriend is serving as a volunteer in Mongolia for 18 months and intends to teach me the language when she comes back. I hear it is difficult but logical and intriguing.

My girlfriend and several other people serving with her should be able to contribute to creation of the course.

September 25, 2016

I'd love Mongolian too. Like someone else said, let's hope a native speaker sees this thread.

I'd also love any new languages that aren't particularly common. Duolingo is a good platform for bringing lesser known languages to a large amount of people easily.

February 24, 2016

So true! I love that Duolingo is usually so good at bringing those lesser-known languages to the forefront. Mongolian would be a great addition!

March 11, 2019

Mongolian is insane. Then again, insane languages are my passion. Full support.

I'd definitely like to learn Mongolian on Duolingo!

September 20, 2015

Could be really interesting to get to know that culture. It has the world’s lowest population density, with 2 people per square km, beating Iceland with 3, and a fascinating, long-winding culture.

This reminds me of the time when I was sitting in Intro to China (I’m an East Asian studies major) when we were supposed to learn about Chenggis Khan and the Yuan dynasty. I was chatting with a girl next to me. She said she was Russian and looked clearly Asian, and since I’m Eastern Slavic by heritage and look a bit Asian myself I joked that ‘today we’re gonna learn about daddy’...

September 19, 2016

I think it would be fascinating. :)

September 9, 2015

Can I do it? I have lived in both Mongolia and the US and I am a native speaker to both so... Work together?

June 24, 2016

Hi, I can teach Mongolian.

September 15, 2016

Сайн уу! Чи Монгол уу?

September 15, 2016

Тийм, би монгол.

October 4, 2017

yes it would be wonderful (but I guess you are not on Duolingo anymore)

October 10, 2018

Сайн уу! Чи Монгол хэл заадаг юм уу?

    Hi Duolingoers! I would like to put Mongolian language on Duolingo!! Watch my proposal out and help me reach the Duolingo people:

    May 23, 2018

    I got inspired of learning Mongolian ever since I heard of Mongolian throat singing.

    May 9, 2016

    I know right! Same here

    November 1, 2017

    If you would like, I can help with any questions about Mongolian you have

    January 24, 2018

    hell yeah. all together now, here comes the chorus!


    December 30, 2016

    You can already learn Mongolian on, taught by a professional teacher with over 10 years experience. Tribalingual is a startup backed by the University of Cambridge Judge Business School.

    September 25, 2016

    I'd be willing to go very deep into debt to help fund a Mongolian Duolingo course.

    October 28, 2016

    I'm also excited about having a Mongolian course. It's a mysterious language and it seems interesting.

    September 6, 2015

    Check out for Mongolian language lessons!

    April 19, 2016


    April 19, 2016

    Does educatink still exist somewhere? The link doesn't work and I can't find it!

    March 11, 2019

    I learned Japanese then Korean on internet, then moved to Korea to find that I was almost fluent already! Then, I found out that the Mongolian and Turkish languages were related to Korean, I met Mongolians in Seoul and decided that I was going to learn this language too! Since there really aren't that many resources online to learn Mongolian, please guys, make a Mongolian course on Duolingo :)

    September 22, 2017

    Please yes! My dad's been traveling back and forth between home and Mongolia for a couple of years and will be spending the majority of this year there, but he can't find any good tools for learning the language! I would absolutely LOVE to be able to tell him Duolingo had finally created a Mongolian course :D

    March 11, 2019

    I would like to Mongolian too . Turkish and Mongolian have a lot of similarities also ! Turkish and Mongolian are relatives . (I'm a Turkish asdfasdf XD)

    September 6, 2015

    I've had slight interest with Turkish before, but my reasoning was more along the lines of wanting to understand Star Trek/Star Wars rip-offs. xD But, it's good to know that these two have similarities.

    September 6, 2015

    Anatolian turks have little to no relation to Altai turks, and completely no relation to mongolians. You'll have better luck finding those armenians that went missing, than a link between anatolian turks and mongols :-)

    June 9, 2016

    I do not care about ethnics but languages :D

    June 9, 2016

    An unusual request... but I like it :-)

    Let's hope some Mongolian native speakers read this and apply for a course...

    September 6, 2015

    Well, I wouldn't have bothered writing this if I saw it on here all the time. :)

    September 6, 2015

    I'm very interested in Mongolian history and culture. Please, make it happen!

    September 6, 2015

    Pretty random language to add, but nevertheless it's another language, it only helps. I can ensure you that it's not near the top of there list. But then again I don't know a word of Mongolian.

    September 6, 2015

    I don't expect it to be, I'm mainly just interested in seeing who else wants to learn it.

    September 7, 2015

    I dream of a future where many more courses can be created on here, and much less labour-intensively (i.e. faster). Absolutely no idea how, but like I say, it's just a dream right now :)

    December 30, 2016

    It should definitely be more transparent/democratic/automated too and based on number of interested learners and volunteers for course creators

    November 1, 2017

    May your dreams come true!

      November 25, 2018

      I've been interested in learning Mongolian ever since I saw a video of someone speaking it for the Teen Polyglot Challenge. It sounds really cool. Apparently it is really hard but I would still like to learn at least a bit sometime.

      September 7, 2015

      I want to learn Mongolian! (And I am going to learn it, somehow..) It is one of my goals in life ^_^

      September 8, 2015

      Mongolian is a quite structured language, but pronounciation is difficult, so unless you have a Mongolian teacher or live in Mongolia, it's really hard to learn it. In any case, it's a fascinating language that would be worthy of DuoLingo.

      February 10, 2016

      For Dutch people it's a bit easier since the biggest issue is in the g sounds we have in Dutch as well.

      I live in Mongolia

      January 27, 2017

      Goed nieuws voor mij dus.

      January 27, 2017

      Goed news tot een zekere hoogte het is een taal waar woorden bijna hetzelfde klinken.

      zoals water en haar en fout en regen.

      en als je een woord iets verkeerd zegt begrijpen mensen er niks van. (soms is het omdat ze niet verwachten dat een buitenlander Mongools kan spreken.)

      February 1, 2017

      I just like listening to Mongolian rap.

      August 10, 2016

      Having a mongolian course seems like a good idea. However, you may run into some script difficulties, like typing in either Cyrillic, or any other Mongolian Scripts. Good Luck if you make the course

      February 12, 2017

      I would definitely use Mongolian

      June 25, 2017

      I think cyrillic would be the way to go, and Russian/Ukrainian/etc... courses already require typing in cyrillic

      August 26, 2019


      April 28, 2017

      A mongolian course would be fantastic!

      August 9, 2017

      Yes! Somebody please make this happen!

      September 2, 2017

      Sure.. I want to learn mongolian.. I love Yuan Dynasty

      September 23, 2017

      [deactivated user]

        Saying, that Mongolia belongs to a historic, now non-existent empire is a great insult to the Mongolian nation. Be careful.

        November 25, 2018

        I would also learn Mongolian because the culture is fascinating and almost unchanging over the course of history!

        April 10, 2018

        kinda out of topic but the Indonesian course ( Also asian country) just finished

        June 12, 2018

        I try to learn mongolian. But with few resources. A book with the basics in grammatic and writing, and internet videos.

        So I would looooooove to have it on Duolingo :)

        October 10, 2018

        Oh yes, this would be lovely to learn, such a beautiful language~ <3

        November 8, 2018

        Yes please. How can we make it happen.

        December 26, 2018

        I would absolutely love to learn Mongolian! It’s such an interesting language, and it’s one of the few Asian countries that I personally think is quite interesting.

        January 26, 2019

        As someone who will be doing research in extremely rural areas in Mongolia, this would be very useful.

        February 2, 2019

        Yes! I spent a month in Mongolia last summer and all the English-based Mongolian language apps just plain suck. It baffles me that Duolingo prioritizes developing content for invented languages like High Valyrian instead of a language like Mongolian that has millions of living speakers.

        April 3, 2019

        The Vikings of the East. Or should I say the Vikings were the Mongols of the West?

        Either way...YES. Especially if traditional script could be used.

        May 9, 2019

        I don't want a Mongolian course in the future. I want a Mongolian course now!

        May 11, 2019

        I would love Mongolian!

        May 11, 2019

        I am also very interested and think Mongolian would be a great language to learn. Fingers crossed it makes it into the Incubator soon!

        June 5, 2019


        February 29, 2016

        Hey guys, check out for Mongolian! :)

        July 18, 2016

        New Mongolian course for the win!

        June 13, 2017

        I would LOVE to have a mongolian course

        September 30, 2017

        I would love to learn Mongolian!

        October 25, 2017

        Yes please!

        November 2, 2017

        my family is Mongolian and I'd really like to learn!!! Can dueling please put Mongolian on here!!!

        November 10, 2017

        I am totally for it! My wife is a total fan of Mongolia and wanted to learn it for long. Unfortunately all the books to learn it from English either do not exist or cost as much as a travel to the moon....

        December 7, 2017

          I can speak Kazakh, Kyrgyz, & Uzbek but i swear i lowkey understand mongolian because i guess central asia is tied with Mongolia.. Some words sound oddly familiar and I want to learn Mongolian now.. it is also an altaic language

          May 11, 2018

          Confirmation bias perhaps? I've read/heard stories of people who heard of Altaic in passing and were convinced they understood Korean despite speaking Turkish themselves. To be clear, Altaic isn't a real family, there's just been a huge amount of borrowing between Turkic and Mongolic because of all the contact. A relation between Mongolic and Tungusic has also been largely discredited, and Korean and Japanese are in no way related to any of the languages previously considered "Altaic" either.

          May 11, 2018

          [deactivated user]

            The group "Altaic" (or the concept) exists just because they have similar sentence structures, that is it. There are absolutely no words similar or shared between Mongolian and the two of Japanese and Korean.

            November 25, 2018


            Where did you learn Kazakh, Kyrgyz, orUzbek? Thanks

            May 11, 2018


            If they have a language like Esperanto or fictional ones like High Valyrian, there shouldn’t be any excuse for leaving Mongolian out

            May 11, 2018


            Very much seconded! It's somewhat difficult to find information on the language on the Net, and I for one would jump at the chance...don't suppose there's a poll, is there?

            May 17, 2018


            Hey, I could teach you Mongolian.Cause i`m a native speaker.And can you teach me English?

            August 21, 2018


            Very nice proposition... But I'm French. Zut alors !

                November 25, 2018


                I also have found Mongolia very intriguing. I love history and cultures of many countries. The fact that Mongolian seemed to have been able to keep their traditional ways through the centuries attracts me to no end. Mongolia is in my top 5 countries that I really want to visit. I live in California and when I went looking for books on Mongolia I found a serious lack of books and even less on the language. I really hope that this is one of the languages added soon.

                February 7, 2019

                Сайн байна уу! I learnt Mongolian with other resources, but I think having a comprehensive course on Duolingo could help. Btw, I used to learn it but gave up, and I don't think I can have much of a conversation with someone.

                April 11, 2019


                I'm learning Mongolian now! But there is no course on Duolingo

                Hello, I am Mongolian. Mongolian language is easy to learn. Although cyrillic mongolian grammar is very difficult. Traditional mongolian script too easy to learn. I will suggest traditional mongolian script. Chingis khaan used this script. ᠮᠣᠩᠭᠣᠯ ᠪᠢᠴᠢᠭ ᠪᠣᠯ ᠬᠠᠮᠣᠭ ᠊ᠤᠨ ᠬᠢᠯᠪᠠᠷᠬᠠᠨ ᠳᠥᠷᠢᠮ ᠲᠡᠢ ᠪᠢᠴᠢᠭ᠃

                I would love to visit Mongolia some day, but I feel like I should know some Mongolian before going. Duolingo has done a fantastic job educating me so far, so I think a Mongolian course is a great idea!

                July 10, 2019


                sounds fantastic, one of my best friends is Mongolian, would love to have this course- question though would it be traditional script or modern? probably modern, sure, but traditional would be a fun idea :)
