Hopefully eventually! But there has to be a team of volunteers who are fluent, able to work well on a team, and with enough time to devote to building the course. I know there would be a lot of people who would be really excited if Duolingo ever added one. :)

I think there are plenty of volunteers, just not enough people on the Duolingo team to host such a programming intensive course while English for Chinese is not even out of beta yet. I heard they have technical difficulties with Korean even, and that is going to be easier than Japanese and Chinese

Doesn't Duolingo already have that team, which is still working on English for Chinese speakers?

I wonder how one could write Chinese on a computer? Duolingo would probably need a new type of system to accommodate this.

Chinese speakers spell out the words with Roman characters and then a few options for symbols appear. It would be a pain in the rear to do, but that's how the Chinese do it every day.
