Hey, I was wondering what's going on with Duolingo and Icelandic. It got a nice score for having a course on it on a poll https://www.duolingo.com/comment/9636652, and languages in that poll like Korean and Welsh have been developed/are in development. Curious ^^ I've been learning Icelandic and it's a very interesting language!

The answer is simple. These polls are not official. Furthermore Duolingo needs contributors and free capacities for each course.

Hi CooperLewis_,

From Help Center: "How can I suggest a new language course?

If you want to make a [course] suggestion, we encourage you to visit the forums and making a search for suggestions that have been made in the past, and adding your vote and comments to those existing posts [and thus not creating a new one]. That will make the request more popular and make it stand out more, encouraging more people to add their votes. :)

Note: Texts in between square brackets are additions of mine.

So, as you can see and as explained by , polls (which are thus unofficial things) aren't the way to show our interest to Duo about this or that course teaching this or that language from this or that other language. Moreover, the above official text doesn't say neither that having a very highly asked for course will make it be added: the expression of this will is just one factor in Duo's final decision about what is the next course to be added.

See for example this more than one year old and not that much popular (compared to some other posts about a new course) discussion about Icelandic for English speakers where you can add your vote and even comment.
