Polish is out !

Congrats to the Team !

Polish is in Beta ! Why should you learn it ?

Congratulation to the team ! It has been weeks that I am gathering informations for you know… why should we learn Polish ?

Here is what I found :

Polish is a touristic language : If you plan to go to Croatia during the summer, there are only Polish tourists tanning. If you want to ski in the Austrian Alps, the signs for hotels etc. are written in Polish !

Polish people are everywhere ! If each states of the US would be named after a country, Illinois would be named Poland and Chicago its capital. There are also a lot of polish speakers in the UK, Ireland, Australia and Brazil. Polish love to travel !

It is a challenge to learn Polish. It is considered as one of the hardest language to learn. meaning that it would be a great challenge and it will make you unique if people know that you can speak this language !

Poland ! The country is so beautiful and rich in history that you will enjoy your trip better if you can speak the language to the locals !

It is a nice bridge to learn other slavic languages. Czech, Ukrainian, Russian and many more. When you will figure out how to speak Polish, languages like Czech or Russian will be easier to learn.

So what are you waiting for ?

Hahaha, some parts of Illinois could definitely be annexed to Poland. When I worked in the central courthouse, all the signs were in English, Spanish and Polish. Now, in Boston, I've impressed some people by pronouncing their (Polish) last names correctly, but when you go to school with a Tyszkiewicz and a Krzywiec, you get used to it. If I learned Polish, I'd have leg up because the large diaspora here means I've already got a handle on the intimidating spelling.

I can't wait to start learning it. I wish it would just automatically release into beta when the course enters beta form.

December 10, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/kaikaku

What do you mean? Will I be able to start learning today or not?

Because my polish course page is still stuck at 100%... :/

December 10, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/kimonocrazy

According to the latest update from the Polish team it's in beta, but I guess it takes a long time for the page to update on the course page. I'm impatient.

December 10, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/kaikaku

Long time? really? :(

oh damn, that's not good, anyway, I guess 1 or 2 hours at most, oder...?

I love that you ended your sentence with "oder...?" As a German learner, I do this too. Hopefully it comes out soon!

I can't wait. I learn Polish on my own from my Polish friends, but I really like how Duolingo's courses are set up.

    Wait wait how long is "few minutes"?? It's been almost an hour since this was posted & I don't see a change, I feel like this is gonna be a another "soon "

    December 10, 2015

    https://www.duolingo.com/CosmoKaiza

    The course is in Phase II, like Russian and Catalan, it took a few minutes before being available

    December 10, 2015

    I'm also curious about this. It hasn't usually taken this long to go from Incubator beta to Course list beta (and the Incubator says there are 30 students while no one seems to be able to start the course).

    Edit: and as always, they were just waiting for me to comment. Less than 3 minutes...

    OK GUYS I GOT IT

    what you have to do is go to the flag on the left corner of the page (or also in settings maybe?), not the language course page with the graphics

    It's a glitch with the page. Last I saw, there were over 6,700 learners, and at least a few hundred 31st learners. :-)
