English for Georgian speakers
Hello guys. :) Here you can vote for the course of English for Georgian speakers. Who wants this kind of course on Duolingo? I would definitely moderate or contribute for it :) Vote here!
I loved this song and the video. I knew nothing about Georgia before. But now you have my support for addition of the language 110%
I don't know when I would learn another language, unless I give up sleep, but I saw one of your previous posts about Georgian and it intrigues me. I'll vote for it. :)
არა ჯერ, გააზირეთ ეს ფორუმი, რომ უფრო მეტი ხმა მოაგროვოს. ეს დაეხმარება შექმნას
Georgian Alphabet is very special and lots of my foreign friends asked me to teach them Georgian language, but its a little bit difficult when you have a little time to share the skills.Thus, To add Georgian- English / English- Georgian course would be really great possibility for many tourists coming to Georgia, and for people who are interested in languages as well as for many Georgian people. Dear Duolingo Hope you will take into consideration all the above comments and great desire of site member in favor of the course "English for Georgian speakers" / Georgian for English Speakers "
Duolingo is real good resources for learning English and we hope that it will be available for Georgians too
I seem to recall a push for English in place for Russian back in 2010. How successful was the initiative?
It was successful, Georgian teenagers don't learn Russian anymore, but it's still necessary for the jobs in Georgia. In order to obtain a job, you need to know both English and Russian. I'll try to add Russian for Georgian speakers too but after adding English for Georgians, as it's easier to make it :)
Georgian for English Speakers and the reverse, and Russian for Georgian Speakers and the reverse are both courses I would like to see. I wish you the best of luck <3
Fantastic idea! I'm maxed out with my two languages, but there are many who would like it.
As an aside, I have a Georgian cookbook, and I've been experimenting with the food, which has been fun. But language...that's a different story. I applaud your initiative though!
yes yes a million times !!!! I have been waiting for Georgian so long, this NEEDS to happen !!
Dear Duolingo, it would be great if you add Geo-Eng language course for Georgian speakers
Definite vote from me for Georgian for English speakers and English for Georgian speakers. გაუმარჯოს!
Thank you, Tamuna10, for this great idea! I hope it comes true one day and I would love to help you guys if I can be helpful in any way. Gave out all my lingots as well. Good luck!
და რა მაინტერესებს, ხმების რაიმე განსაზღვრული რაოდენობა არსებობს, რომლის მიღწევის შემთხვევაში ადმინისტრაცია ყურადღებას მოგვაქცევს?
არა, მაგრამ ერთი რამ ვიცით, რაც მეტი, მით უკეთესი :) თან წერილიც გვაქვს გაგზავნილი და ეს დააჩქარებს პასუხის მიღებას. :)
გამარჯობათ, მე მაინტერესებს თურქულის სწავლა, მაგრამ ქართული ენა არ არის როგორც ჩანს, რომ ქართულიდან ვისწავლო და არა ინგლისურიდან... და როგორ მოვიქცეთ ამ შემთხვევაში?
თუკი ინგლისურის კურსი გამოვა, შემდეგ უკვე ადვილი გახდება ნებისმიერი ენის კურსის შექმნაც :) მაგრამ ჯერ ინგლისურის კურსი უნდა შეიქმნას.
ქართული ,ქართული, ქართული, ქართული, ქართული, ქართული, ქართული, ქართული, ქართული, დაამატეთ. duolingo.
Dear Duolingo, Please support English for Georgians and vice versa. It's a great idea.
please add Georgian language maybe it isn't so widespread but it is worth to learn by us. დაამატეთ ქართული ენა :)
Hope that it will be accomplished soon, also it must be important for duolingo to have course of georgian language for english speakers though I guess it must be hard to do, but course of english for georgian speakers is a must to do.
დაამატეთ ქართული ენა! + :)
I support it. Given the importance of English as a global language we need as many courses teaching English as possible. Hopefully one day almost all the worlds population will be able to learn English on Duolingo in their native language
How many votes are needed to get this course started? I remember it took like forever for some languages (for instance Turkish for English speakers) to appear on Duelingo.
I just love the website btw <3
It might take some months, but we'll do everything for Georgian to appear on Duolingo :)
Hey! I'm a student of Russian, but i've been to Georgia, so have exeperienced it's amazing landscapes, people and language.
I'm giving all the lingots i've acumilated (250+) to this cause, because I think everyone should have to chance to exeperience georgian culture!
Duolingo please allow Georgian for english speakers!!!
Dear Duolingo, Knowing English can empower Georgian people and bring an important social change. Millions of people try to master the language, although it is almost impossible to do it without expensive tutors. You make education available for free for so many people around the globe. Please, take our wish into consideration and help make our country a better place to live and develop.
Georgian is such a beautiful and fascinating language! And visiting Georgia is on my bucket list! I support.
I am currently serving as a Peace Corps volunteer in Georgia and would love to keep brushing up on the language. A DuoLingo course would be extremely helpful.
Hi, here is a Georgian language course which teaches Georgian alphabet and simple conversational phrases.
As I'm half Georgian and speak English fluently, I would happily contribute to this course if it was ever to be made.
Actually I'm Georgian and don't know the language.... ups!.... it would be very helpful, you know to help me impress my grandparents. I vote for it.
Took 2 DNA tests and both came back with a decent amount of Caucasus. Kind of explains my look and facial structure. So I would totally love to learn the Caucasus languages!
It’s such an unusual language with a tiny population of native speakers, in very real danger of disappearing, that offering it on duolingo is not only a good idea, but a morally sound one as well.
3 წელი გასულა პოსტის გამოქვეყნებისგან. არვიცი ჯერ კიდევ თუ შემორჩით მოხალისეები, მაგრამ vote^ ჩემგან :დ
Please add English language course for Georgians. It's necessary for us to get at least normal job here. To get a college degree
we want duolingo English course for Georgian speakers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hi, Duolingo, let's add ENG for GEO at least you will get some new members, and i'm ready to contribute, for free :)
I am Georgian and i learn English here.Duolingo is very good and popular resource. So learning for me and my friends will be more easy if Georgian language will added. For more people it is very important. Thanks for support and understanding.
I definitely vote for Georgian. -- Time to add my 41st language to my Memrise. I better get a head start on the alphabet.
add pleaseee! :)))) :((((( :( i learn with english but it's so hard for me couse its not my national language and it is hard to learn
I can help. I'm a native speaker of English and know Georgian fluently. Let me know how I can help.
Hi Frank, thank you. There are two ways, 1. you can share this post. we need to get as much likes as we can. we have 500+ now. Most liked language request in Duolingo topic is Arabic with 1300+ likes. 2. you can fill contributors form
Common Georgian!! on of the oldest language in Eurasia <3 :))) good Luck ;)
გამარჯობა!! როგორ ხართ? მე ვარ პოლოელი. :) That's all I can type in Georgian (probably some typos somewhere ;))... but, I love this language, the country, the culture :) I vote for the course :)
Hi, thank you for support, would be great if you could share this to get more likes :). Happy to see Georgian on Duolingo, at least in comments :D. p.s. პოლონელი :)
I am a native English speaker and I'd like to learn Georgian.
I up voted this comment because I'd like to see the English for Georgians as it would likely lead to Georgian for English speakers too!
Yes, we plan to make Georgian for English speakers, as well :). So if you know someone else who would like to learn Georgian, share this discussion. We need more votes :D
My spouse is Georgian, a lawyer from Tbilisi, who now has lived in America for several years, speaks English and is married to an American, me, and applied last year (2016) to be part of the Georgian Duolingo team. It is 2017 now and nobody has replied.
As far as I know Duolingo doesn't respond to all applications but they do take into account how many people have applied. Also to votes on this forum. For Georgian it will be more difficult to get on Duolingo because it's not very popularly and well known language, so we need more votes on this forum and more people to apply for contribution. We must show that there is demand for Georgian language :)
I just started learning georgian and having duolingo would be amazing! I vote yes!
რომელი უფრო მნიშვნელოვანია ჩვენთვის, Lingot-ების დაგროვება თუ კომენტარების რაოდენობა?
განხილვაზე „ლაიქების“ რაოდენობა და კომენტარები. ერთ ადამიანს ერთი ლაიქის დატოვება შეუძლია, ამიტომ მაგას მეტი წონა აქვს. ახლა სადღაც 600-ია და 4000-ს გვინდა მივაღწიოთ, რომ ყველაზე პოპულარული განხილვა გახდეს ფორუმზე :)
აიღეთ ჩემი ლინგოტები ან რაც საჭიროა, ოღონდ დაემატოს. უბრალოდ, მე არ ვიცი, როგორ უნდა ვიმოქმედო სხვანაირად. წარმატებები.
Ask Luis when will they add Georgian :) https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/6bxr2v/i_am_luis_von_ahn_coinventor_of_captcha_recaptcha/
მინდა მალე დაემატოს ქართული ენა. დაამატეთ, გთხოვთ. განა შეიძლება მსოფლიოს ერთ-ერთი უძველესი და უკულტურულესი ენა არ იყოს ამ პლატფორმაზე? წინსვლას და წარმატებებს ვუსურვებ ქართულს.
I'd love to see a Georgian/English course in Duolingo and would be glad to contribute to it (I'm English but have learnt upper-intermediate-ish Georgian). It's a really beautiful country and language.
Yes. My spouse, a native Georgian speaker, educated there now living long-term in the United States applied to contribute last year as well, but never heard back. I wonder why this is. I would encourage all willing and qualified contributors to apply again.
OK, I applied for a second time.
Translating my pompous motivations from English into Georgian - as the application form requires - proved an appropriate challenge ..
It's really hard to say yet. But I believe we can make it sooner, the more votes we get :)
4000+ რომ გახდება, ყველაზე პოპულარუი პოსტი იქნება ფორუმზე. ლინგოტები, ხმები, კომენტარები – რაც უფრო მეტი იქნება მით უკეთესი :)
გასაგებია, ძალიან კარგი! ვეცდები თანაკურსელებში და ნაცნობ-მეგობრებში გავავრცელო. FB-ზე პოპულარულ ჯგუფებშიც თუ დაიპოსტება კიდევ უკეთესი.
თქვენი გვერდი და ვიდეოები ვნახე FB-ზე, მაგრამ სამწუხაროდ ცოტა გამოხმაურება აქვს ძალიან.
ჰო ეს ლინგოტები რამდენიმე ათეული შემოვწირე ამ საქმეს და რამდენიმე ასეულის გაცემა შემიძლია კიდევ. ამაზე უკეთეს საქმეს არ ვიცი რას შეიძლება მოხმარდეს :დ
მადლობა ^_^, ჰომ რაც უფრო მეტი იქნება მით უკეთესი.
კი, ჯერ-ჯერობით ცოტა იცნობს, მაგამ ახლა ვგეგმავთ პიარ კამპანიას. მალე უფრო მეტი იქნება :)
Hello, I'm 55 years old, I decided to learn English from Russian. And Duilingo is really good site for this. Although it would be very useful for all georgians if there is English from Georgian. Wish you good luck for this great project!
an English-Georgian course, or FrenchGEorgien or German-Georgian, whatever is more practial. In the meantime I will explore all the links given in this discussion.
It might sound crazy but my dream is Georgian to be most learnable language on Duolingo, that is English-Georgian and French-Georgian and German-Georgian and so on, and so on, and so on. Also, for Georgians to be able to learn ANY language they would like from our native language.
Please add Georgian for English speakers! It's such a beautiful language and good learning resources for it are so scarce!
This is really a nice project... I'm Italian and I have friends in Georgia and I would really like to learn your beautiful language... Is it going to be possible?
Hi, Mattia Yes! First, we plan to create English for Georgian speakers. But after that... my dream is to see Georgian as most learnable language on Duolingo ^_^. And for Georgians to be able to learn many languages.
Every Language for Georgians, Georgian for Everyone :D
სულ წიხლზე არ ვკიდივართ დუოლინგოს?! tsesieri contributor aravin iqneba da ra azri aqvs qartuli enis damatebas... dasakhvets, sashinel platformad darcheba :\
ირაკლი(?) გამარჯობა, კურსის ხარისხს რაც შეეხება ჩვენი ფონდი, Educare Georgia შექმნის. სასწავლო პლატფორმების გადმოქართულების გამოცდილება გვაქვს უკვე (ka.khanacademy.org code.org და სხვა). დღესაც მზად ვართ დავიწყოთ, მაგრამ სამწუხარო რეალობაა ის, რომ ქართული ენა არაა პრიორიტეტული დუოლინგოსთვის (ამდენი ხანია ხალხი იაპონურს ითხოვდა და მხოლოდ რამდენიმე თვის წინ გააკეთეს). ამიტომ უნდა ვაჩვენოთ დუოლინგოს რომ ქართულ ენაზე მოთხოვნა მაღალია.
ახლა ყველაზე პოპულარულ პოსტს დუოლინგოზე აქვს სადღაც 4400+ ხმა. გვინდა ისე ვქნათ რომ ყველაზე პოპულარული ეს პოსტი გახდეს, მინიმუმ 5000 ხმა რომ იყოს :). თქვენც შეგიძლიათ დახმარება, გთხოვთ გააზიარეთ http://duolingo.ge/
How would I vote? I've tried learning, Georgian, on my own. I've only successfully learned, "Gamarjoba". Hello, I think. I really love, Georiga, and I want to get to know it's language. So, please I want to help anyway I can, to get, Georgian, on Duolingo.
Native US-English speaker here. I would love to learn some Georgian because I sing Georgian folk music in a chorus. At the very least I'd like to learn how to read the alphabet. I could probably teach myself, but it's more fun to learn in a course. :)
I notice that all the comments (as well as the original post) are from 2 years ago. So whatever happened with this? Is a Georgian course in development? I don't see it offered.
მიდი თამუნა!! ძალიან მინდა უფრო კარგად ვისწავლო ქართული, ამერიკულა ქართველი რომ ვარ. მპა, მპა, და მპა! (კოცნა!)
Yes, There should definitely be a Georgian Course!!! The Caucasian Languages are so interesting!!
- my vote :-) ისე კარგი იქნეოდა ხმის მიცემის პროცედურა უფრო მარტივი რომ ყოფილიყო :-/
მადლობა ^_^, ჰომ :/, კი ვფიქრობდით რამე ხმის მიცემის პლატფორმაზე დაგვედო, მაგრამ აქ დაგროვილი ხმები უფრო წონიანია https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/articles/204979660-How-can-I-suggest-a-new-language-course-
What you Georgian speakers who can contribute need to do is look at the Language tree of other languages, and start writing the course without the code, but get the vocabulary lists and the sentences just like what they use for the other courses. I would duplicate those questions and answers but put it in Georgian such that you have a good mock up of the Georgian course from Beginner thru Intermediate. Then, I would submit a copy of that, with all the contributers signing for its accuracy. This should help Georgian get moved up the line. Best Wishes!
This is a very good idea! And if duolingo is still not willing to support the work, the project could be shared on another platform. My spouse is Georgian, came two the USA four years ago and is fluent in English and willing to contribute. How can we draw wider attention to this idea???
Thanks! Comment to those on this list who said they would help. I'd see if its okay to exchange email addresses. You can get gmail addresses specifically for this purpose. Best wishes!
Me! Me! Really want to work in Georgia, but need to learn some of the language first. Gee, the writing is so pretty!
I vote for Georgian! I am a non-native, fluent speaker in Georgian, and would love to contribute.
Thank you for participating Paul? Have you submitted an application to the incubator? How did you learn Georgian?
Hi! I support georgian as a latin american person who wants to learn this caucasic language!
By the way, how many votes need this post to be considered to the start of the creation of this course?
Hi John, Duolingo doesn't give a specific number. One of the factors, they look at is "how high is demand." We took 5000 votes as a milestone because with that amount this post will be the highest voted one on the forum! Please share this with friends to help us get there http://duolingo.ge/en.html
I'm with you. I wonder what it will take for Duolingo to get started with Georgian. The technology and the volunteers are there. My spouse is Georgian, living in the United States for several years, and has applied.
Kartulad, rogor lamazi ena! Tu sheidzleba! Yea, my Georgian is terrible. Would really love some resources to practice.
As an indonesian who is interested in learning languages, I absolutely vote for georgian course
Terima kasih! As strange as it may sound given the distance that separates them, Georgian and Indonesian sometimes have similar words, no doubt due to Persian and Arabic influences. For example, 'I think' is 'Saya pikir' in Indonesian, and მე ვფიქრობ ('Me vpikrob') in Georgian.
Yes please this would be so useful to me, I struggle with finding the right words sometimes but I do speak it fluently and I think this would REALLY help.
I use Duo and love it. As a native Georgian, i'd gladly contribute for it if it's necessary <3
I would love to see English for Georgian speakers on here and it would make an incredible difference to a lot of people in Georgia!
English is the key to so much more in terms of education. Does anybody know how the current state of the process looks like?
You are absolutely right. As little as it sounds, knowing this one language could've opened so many doors for so many people here. Sadly, the state of affairs regarding the matter doesn't seem promising. I've personally volunteered not just as a contributor, but a moderator as well. In fact, I've volunteered twice already, but there has been no approval. The most frustrating thing is that I have no idea what requirements they have. Does the number of volunteers matter? Are you supposed to have a sufficient diploma/certificate to qualify? I've no clue whatsoever.
My Georgian spouse, who lives here in the USA now for a number of years and speaks fluent English, has applied several times as well. No response. It is frustrating. I would love to see this project begin.
[⚠‼⚠‼ Important! For some unknown bug, we have lost more than 700 votes :(. Please vote on this bug report as well to get Duo's attention so they will bring our votes back https://www.duolingo.com/comment/25398737. But keep on sharing this post too, we need more votes!]
English is very important for Georgians. It's necessary for us to get at least normal job here. To get a college degree.
After Geo-Eng course is done it will be possible to make Eng-Geo course for many tourists that visit Georgia
Georgian as a language is at risk http://www.lingua.ge/pages/unesco/atlas_e.pdf
Georgian will be first Caucasian language and will be a good example for our neighbors to add their language on Duolingo.
And many other reasons. So please Duolingo let Georgian join this great movement that you have started ^_^
Also, please put this image as profile picture on Duolingo https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwuWy3f6skD3YXJuU1JfeGNxRkU/view?usp=sharing
p.s. A List of Georgian Lessons https://www.duolingo.com/comment/9660890
p.p.s. gave all 50+ lingots to this just to show how much I want this. Would give more if had :D
Great initiation!!! I was thinking making something like that as well and after a bit research being a super happy to see this post out here? Is that in process? Will be happy to contribute for development!
Thank you :). We need to get as mush votes on this discussion as we can, 3500+. You should fill the contributors form. And we are planning to do more, details will be here https://www.facebook.com/GeorgianonDuolingo/ First step is to show Duolingo that there is demand on Georgian language, so they would let us to create course
Hey, can you please explain how I can help by giving lingots? I've never done this before. What kind of votes do you mean? Thank you in advance!
If you can speak Georgian and English, please apply to be part of the team. You can click the little up button on any or all of the comments in this thread to show your support. Most important is to click the little up button on the original post in this thread. You can also give one or more lingots to the first post on the thread. You do this by clicking the Give Lingot button to the right of the up and down arrows just below the post. Your browser will probably prompt you (Are you sure you want to give a Lingot away? If you do, you click yes or ok. I hope this helps.
Hi, votes are the arrows (up/down) on the left side. As of today we have 580 and the plan is to get 3500+. 3500+ because most popular discussion in Duolingo topic has <3500 votes. If we make this most popular discussion, Duolingo team will definitely notice and let us start creating the course. Giving lingots helps as well but votes are more important. Thank you for support :)
I think that Georgian speakers should get a course. Of course they should if English is not there mother tongue then I think Duolingo should create the course to improve their English.
There is no some specific number. The most popular discussion in Duolingo topic has 3400+ votes. So lets aim to more than that :)
+1 Please add Geo-Eng and Eng-Geo course to Duolingo. It is very important for both Georgians and tourists as well.
უკვე უყურადღებობა და უინტერესობა კი არაა უნამუსობას აქვს ადგილი Duolingo-ს მხრიდან. მე სამუდამოდ ვწყვეტ ამ აპლიკაციით სარგებლობას.
გიგა იმედს ნუ კარგავთ ^_^. პირიქით, უფრო მეტი ხმების („ლაიქების“) დაგროვება გვჭირდება! აგერ ფინურ ენას 2000+ ადამიანი ითხოვს და არ არის https://www.duolingo.com/comment/3377185 და ჩვენ ჯერ კიდე 1000-საც ვერ მივაღწიეთ. მაგრამ მივაღწევთ, მეტიც – გვინდა ყველაზე პოპულარული იყოს ფორუმზე. სულ რაღაც 5000 (:დ) ხმა გვჭირდება. გააზიარეთ :) http://duolingo.ge/
გამარჯობა ხალხო მაინტერესებს რატომ არის ლაიქების რაოდენობა 14 რადგან მახსოვს რომ ადრე 700ზე მეტი ლაიქი გვქონდა
ლუკა გამარჯობა, რაღაც „ბაგის“ გამო განოლდა :/. არ ვიცი ზუსტად რატომ. მივწერე ამ პრობლემაზე, ფორუმზეც დავდე მაგრამ პასუხი არ არის.
It's been years since the discussion started are they never going to make the course??
How do I vote?
Btw yes I think it would be important. I am more interested in Georgian for English speaker, though.
In addition, I believe a Russian for Georgian speakers (and vice versa) should follow them as well
ხმაც მივეცი, განაცხადიც შევავსე კონტრიბუტორობაზე და მოდერატორობაზეც დავთანხმდი. რამდენიმე დღე გავიდა და ჯერჯერობით პასუხი არაა :( ვინმემ იცის, რა კრიტერიუმებით ხელმძღვანელობენ, გარდა იმისა, რომ ორივე ენა კარგად უნდა იცოდე?
Thank you for applying to work on the Georgian course, Mzevar! I have a friend who has applied several times, who was a lawyer in Georgian, and now lives in the USA for several years, works here, is married to an American and lives in an American family. He speaks both Georgian and English very well. He has never received an answer though. I don't know what the criteria are as far as language proficiency are, but if you do not get a reply, it is not necesarily because you don't know English and Georgian well enough. I would really love to see this Georgian course begin. I am looking for ideas on how we can convince Duolingo to start.
