Just spent two hours writing a duolingo application ! =)
I just applied again to contribute for the English for Latvian speakers course since Duolingo unveiled a few new courses this week, I thought they might add one to teach English. If any of you speak Latvian and English I strongly advise you to write an application so that we can help Duolingo and the World develop. :)
I actually think that you have a higher chance of getting a Latvian course for English speakers started. Duolingo does not really want to add any more interface languages at this stage. Therefore, they are only adding courses from already existing languages. I know this since we've been pushing for a Swedish-English course for ages (I'm a moderator for the Swedish course) and this is what they have told us.
But do apply for a Latvian course! I would love to study Latvian. I love the language and some of my best friends are Latvian.
Exciting! I am trying to learn Lithuanian at the moment and because I'm interested in linguistics I would be very interested in having a look at her sister language!
Veiksmi! Really great to hear you want to help your countrymen learn English :) And who knows, maybe some time in the future you'll get to help other people learn Latvian :D
I just want to point out that you didn't need to put 'an' in your title. :-)
oh god sorry haha i didnt notice that i wrote that ! :D I was originally going to write an hour and fifty minutes but changed it to two because its easier. :)
