Hi everybody,

I was wondering if Icelandic language was ever considered to be added here among the other languages in order to learn it? I looked through the languages in incubator phase and it is not even mentioned there. Also I'm pretty much sure I'm not the only one craving for Icelandic. I'm quite a fan of Scandinavian languages and I think Icelandic is really lacking a lot here. So do you have any idea if it is going to be added any soon or no chance at all? Thank you

You're not the only one craving for Icelandic: I would also like to see it. But then, there are a lot of languages I'd like to see. ;)

If it's not in the Incubator, then that's a pretty good indicator that it's not going to appear on Duolingo anytime soon. Although the devs could develop it, virtually all of the newest languages are in the Incubator.

With Icelandic and Faroese we complete the main scandinavian languages. These languages are very interesting, and with the Duolingo's exponential course quantity growing, I don't think would be impossible to see them here soon (at least Icelandic, but I hope to see Faroese someday in Duolingo).

While I'd like to see it, mostly because it would be a good base for learning Norse, there are probably not more than half a dozen people who know the answer to your question and they never read, or at least never post to, these discussions.

Icelandic will definitely be added, but there is no time frame for it right now. Let's just hope that it'll come this year.

Icelandic is an amazing language! Finnish Icelandic and Chinese is what I would like to see Íslenska er ótrúlega tungumál!

Though I do feel that Duolingo is lacking Scandinavian languages I don't feel as though it will be appearing here anytime soon.

True... Still, they are all very similar, so if you perfect your skills with one or more of them, you will have an easier time picking it up once it does come out.

Icelandic and Finnish are the two I want the most. I start my first year of college the coming fall, and I want to learn as much Finnish as possible, in addition to the other nordic languages.
