What courses are being worked on for people who speak english?
Russian, arabic or anything else?
If you mean, english as a native language, then there's french, german, spanish, portuguese and italian. If you mean you have any of those as your native language, then when you have learnt english, you can use it to learn the other languages, since you now speak english.
Currently, the emphasis is on expanding the Duo community by offering it to language blocs other than English speakers. Basically, don't hold your breath waiting for new English to .... courses to come online any time soon.
Duo already has you. Now they are looking at the billions of potential students who can't access Duo with it's present design. I mean how many English speakers might sign up for Chinese or Russian? 5000, 10,000 maybe even 50,000 max combined. How many Russian, Chinese, HIndi might sign up for a well designed, free English course? A hundred thousand, five hundred thousand, five million, ten million, who knows what the upper range would be?
You and I are but receding dots in Duo's rear view mirror. Life's a bitch.
I agree with the logic, but that seems like a very harsh and heartless opinion of Duo. By adding courses for other speakers to learn English first, they can structure the courses on the existing English courses, and then once those courses are built, Luis said the reverse courses are about 50% built already by transferring the data. This is simply the most effective route.
