A new course has just started, German for Arabic speakers. Meny people have been asking for it since the refugee crisis started, and now Duolingo has answered, as quickly as it could. Thanks Duolingo!

Edit: when I noticed there were 25 courses in the incubator I thought it would be Welsh u.u, it's a fantastic idea though! :)

BTW, it's been mentioned in threads before, but Hebrew <-> Arabic courses would be incredibly important. I've worked with peace groups in Israel/Palestine and the language barrier is an extra challenge. There are people on both sides who want to learn each other's languages, but many just use English as a bridge language right now.

Speaking of courses for speakers of languages other than English, support for Hungary, and language learning being the topic of the Duolingo forums...

...which additional courses for Hungarian speakers do the people taking the English for Hungarian speakers course request? :)

I have seen threads at https://www.duolingo.com/topic/1 where people ask Duolingo for more courses for English speakers.

I have seen threads at https://www.duolingo.com/topic/216 where people ask Duolingo for more courses for Spanish speakers.

I have seen threads at https://www.duolingo.com/topic/836 but I don't know enough Hungarian to know if any of them are from people asking Duolingo for more courses for Hungarian speakers. Probably some are!

Is Finnish as popular on the forums for Hungarian speakers as on the forums for English speakers? http://aboutworldlanguages.com/uralic-language-family says that they're on different branches of the same Uralic language family. Finnish for Hungarian speakers might be easier for Duolingo to make than Finnish for English speakers...
