Now Duolingo is working on its very first African language course. I do believe Duolingo should follow that path and continue to work for the promotion and diffusion of more African languages. Spoken by over 30 million people and through 8 countries, I think Hausa would be a great option to endure the track.

I would love to study Hausa! For us the in the US, resources for most African languages are very hard to come by. It's mostly Arabic and Swahili, and not much else. I hope when Swahili gets released there will be more interest in African languages and maybe we can get some speakers of Hausa to put together a course.

Duolingo is dependent on volunteers, so if you want a certain course probably the most you can do is to try to encourage anyone you know who speaks the language (especially people who have experience teaching it) to sign up as a contributor.

    Duolingo has done a great job on European languages, and yes, it would be great to expand to other continents.

    It is pretty hard to learn Hausa due to the lack of available materials. The addition of a Hausa course would be really helpful!

    I am Nigerian. It is one of the most popular languages in my country. But I don't speak or understand it.

    O yes, I also think hausa is the most systematic and pheasible option duolingo can work on. I will be the first in the line to learn.
