Is Greek for English abandoned?

I have not seen any progress in a long time, which is really too bad. I hope to see it start up again in the near future, instead of perpetually sitting at 34%

I don't think it has been "abandoned", per say. However, it is more likely that the contributor(s) are very busy with their lives outside of Duolingo, and haven't gotten to work on the course. Hopefully they will get some time to work on it soon, or otherwise admit some new contributors. I have also been anxiously awaiting the Greek course, and hope they get to work on it soon!

Eh. Probably not. I hope it doesn't end up like Hungarian, though.

If it ended up like Hungarian then that would be better than it being completely abandoned since the Hungarian team is back now. It's worst fate would be it ending up like Yiddish which hasn't shown a sign of life in months.

Yiddish never really took off, even at the beginning. Greek was actually doing great for a stretch and then... nothing.

I saw that one of the contributors posted a few days ago that she and a few other people on the team had departed it -- but that the remaining contributors were actively working to bring new people onboard, and hoped to start making progress again soon.

I am worried about the yiddish course, the contributors seem to be completely inactive.
