Duolingo is the most popular way to learn languages in the world. Best of all, it's 100% free!

What language do you want to learn? What language that is not on Duolingo that you want to learn.

The title really says it, but I will say it again! What language do you want to learn? Also what language that is not on Duolingo would you like to learn?

I would like to learn Irish (even though I have started a lesson)after I have completely mastered Swedish. I want to learn Korean that is not on Doulingo.

crazyhorse653, I am glad to hear that you are interested in learning Korean! We on the Korean Team cannot wait to get started on the reverse course, but I must warn you that Korean is not a language for the faint of heart. In fact, it is considered one of the most difficult languages for English speakers to learn. Most can learn the script in under an hour, but mastering Korean grammar requires time and effort.

While we wait for Duolingo to give us the go-ahead, we have already started preparing an outline of the course we hope to develop. We have now roughly mapped out the first 54 units of the course.

Duolingo has added most of the languages I'd like to learn. I'm mostly interested in the Romance languages, so right now I'm doing Catalan. I'm waiting for Romanian and for Welsh, these two are still in the incubator. I'm also planning to dabble in Hindi, Guarani, and Swahili when they become available. What I would like to have added is Tagalog or Cebuano.

I want to learn Danish. I have family ties to the language. I also heard from someone who has completed several trees that it is the funniest tree, and that it has the best skill. The last one, which is called, "once upon a time".

But I like the idea of having more than one tree for a language. So I wish they had a Danish to English tree, or a French to Danish tree.

There are many languages that I'd love to learn, but I'll settle for one of the lesser mentioned ones here, and that is Arrernte, There are very few resources online, but I have been using a grammar book I managed to get my hands on. I'd love for there to be a Duolingo course for it one day, but I'll likely have to wait years before seeing it.

I am from central Australia. My family speak Kaytetye and Arrernte. I would love to coordinate a team of bilingual volunteers for ARRERNTE to get it up and running in the incubator! After speaking to a number of people, I have found 15 native speakers (who are fluent in English) and a few linguists who would be keen to contribute. I am not sure if Duolingo would be interested in a language with only 3000 native speakers, but it has the opportunity to attract so many Australians and international learners who want to learn more about Indigenous culture. Using duolingo architecture, we could ensure the language prospers for many years to come!! Hopefully I can gain some traction and support from people in the duo discussion, maybe one day soon we will have Arrernte available on duolingo, that'd be fantastic

https://www.duolingo.com/Thsar999999

I would recommend you and those that said they'd be interested in contributing all apply to the incubator, and who knows, maybe it'll happen

It would be amazing to see Arrernte on there as it might inspire more indigenous communities, such as the Sami, or Native American tribes to push to get their language on Duolingo. Personally, I think these languages are the ones that should be the highest priority for Duolingo because these languages are commonly under threat and having them on Duolingo would ensure that those people had a way to not only learn their people's language but also spread it and teach it to others.

I'm having a blast learning current languages, but I would love to see ancient languages show up someday - Latin, Ancient Greek, Ancient Hebrew, for sure, and maybe old English, Gothic, and Syriac. And at least regarding Latin and Ancient Greek, I believe Luis von Ahn said in a Reddit AMA that we'd see them eventually. Meanwhile I'm enjoying present-day languages. :)

In this order: Ancient Greek (refresh), Latin (refresh), Icelandic, Sanskrit, Quechua, Mongolian . . . Do we notice a trend? Somewhere in that list, but I'm not sure where, would be Modern Standard or Classical Arabic, as well as Hebrew, both Biblical and Modern. And of the languages already available, Swedish comes next, maybe for Russian speakers if that will be ready when I am--which is quite possible, seeing how slow my progress is currently!

Japanese and Chinese would be marvelous, but for me there's prob. not enough years or brain power left to progress very far with either So I'd be happy simply to know Ancient Greek (Attic or Homeric) really, really well. And it would be fun to study it on Duo.

In addition to languages I've already started, and Polish, Czech, and Hungarian which are all progressing into Beta soon from the Incubator... I'd love to see some more progress on the Klingon course just for the fun of it, though it'll be 300 years or so before that supposedly becomes genuinely useful. And if somebody can get in touch with Dory, I think she should put together a course to teach people to speak Whale.

But as for the legitimately new languages for Duolingo English speakers (many are repeats from previous posters), here are my requests. They are in no particular order, and come with the acknowledgement that I may never become fluent in most of them; just some basics for traveling and factoids/idioms/etc. would be nice. Japanese, Chinese, Icelandic, Arabic, and Greek.

Also, I'm not sure exactly how it would work, having no written form and being non-aural, but my second language is American Sign Language and I'd really like to see someone develop a platform for self-teaching ASL and sign languages in general, whether on Duolingo or similar. (Anybody know of one that already exists?) I would be delighted to see other nationalities have their sign languages represented so that I can learn to communicate with Deaf people in other parts of the world.
