Just for Fun: Guessing Next Incubator Languages

This is just for fun to amuse those of us who, like me, are fascinated by the Incubator :P

Which three languages do you think are next to be added to phase one?

I'm going to guess Hindi, Arabic, and Tagalog :)

I found an app that works a little like duolingo that I've been using. I wouldn't rely 100% on it, but it could help. It's called Learn Korean. Speak Korean by ATi Studios. It mainly teaches formal ways of speaking, but it is helpful as one of many resources you can use c: I highly suggest learning Hangeul first and then learning sentence structure (which you probably already did considering this comment is a year old (.`・﹏・´.) sorry.) There's also a lot of videos on youtube that can teach you simple phrases that you can look at and use. It's also helpful to find yourself someone who speaks both your native language and Korean to talk to (I've been using penpalworld.com and mylanguageexchange.com.)

Hope this helps a little bit!!
