Romanian is back !

I checked the incubator and Romanian was at 49.9% instead of 40%. Then I saw their update saying :

Bună! I am thrilled to announce that Romanian for English speakers course is back on track! First, I would like to credit Monica-Ioana, the newest addition to our team, who has put in a lot of effort over the past couple of weeks to create a new outline (layout) for the course. The new structure is a clearer one, focused on elementary and intermediate concepts, providing Duolingo users with both vocabulary and grammar knowledge. Some Information on our Progress As of now, we are at 978/2440 words completed. However, this is subject to changes, due to the modifications that will be made to the original structure. We have 67/100 words with images and hope to reach 100% soon! For more information on our progress, and all other questions, ask us HERE I simply cannot wait for the course completion and I hope that you all feel the same way! As Buzz Lightyear would say..."To Beta and beyond!"

I am really thrilled because I want to learn some Romanian before going to Bucharest next year. Thank you Romanian Team for giving me hope and keep the good work !

No reaction ever since... I would like to apply for creating a Hebrew course as well, but I don't feel like 'talking to the lamp', which is our Jewish saying for 'talking in vain' :) Could anybody educate me how the processes go in the 'incubators' area?

As someone correctly pointed out to me recently there's been movement in Hungarian in terms of the percentage displayed by the incubator. There just hasn't been any self-reported percentage change.

Indeed, a contributor of the Dutch course pointed out that now around 86% has been completed, so that's more than the self-reported 80% around 3 months ago. Don't know what it means, but still, it seems there is still some activity :)

If you installed it on Google Chrome, go to the incubator and it has to be a % next to the circle. Sorry for the unclear instructions, but I discovered that last night :P
