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!
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 "
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 :)
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!!!
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 :)
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.
Hi, here is a Georgian language course which teaches Georgian alphabet and simple conversational phrases.
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.
Ask Luis when will they add Georgian :) https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/6bxr2v/i_am_luis_von_ahn_coinventor_of_captcha_recaptcha/
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.
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/
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.
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???
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
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.
You are learning a lot of other languages too! Impressive. I am hoping Duolingo will listen to its user base and add Georgian as soon as possible. I am curious. What resources are you using to learn Georgian? I think others trying to learn Georgian would be interested to hear as well.
[⚠‼⚠‼ 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 ^_^

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
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
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 :)
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/
