Hi everyone,

The following courses are on the Incubator roadmap but the Staff is still looking for applicants:

Dutch for Brabantian speakers

Limburgish for East Flemish speakers

Limburgish for West Flemish speakers

Brabantian for East Flemish speakers

If you are a native speaker of these languages or you know of anyone who might be a great fit, please tell them to apply at:

https://incubator.duolingo.com/apply

The Staff is looking for bilingual speakers (e.g. to contribute to the Dutch for Brabantian speakers course you need to be fluent in both Dutch and Brabantian) who are passionate and can commit hours of time each week to building and creating a course for learners in Belgium.

=========

P.S. We, the Staff, announced this last week already, but for those who forgot: coming soon: Dutch for West Flemish speakers! ... Ahum... Soon™

In the meantime, we have some teasers for you.

In case anyone wants to know what it means:

Dutch: Ben je het Nedersaksisch niet vergeten? Wij mensen uit het oosten hebben ook een cursus deftige taal nodig.

English: Did you forget Lower Saxon? We people from the east also need a course for fancy language.

If it was real, those languages would be an option in the "teaching" and "for speakers of" buttons.

For a second I was considering this to be real hahahaha. The "Dutch for west-flemish speakers" initially gave it away. It's the 2nd of april so my guard was down :D

As a west flemish 'native' I feel 1% offended :D :D

It's just a joke ;) Yay! I almost thought I was the only one here! (No, seriously, that wasn't gibberish :p)

(For the sake of comparison, in Dutch: Het is maar om te lachen, hoor ;) Yay! Ik dacht bijna dat ik hier de enige was.)

I must confess that my parents never spoke (plat) dialect at home, so I can only understand spoken and written west flemish, and I can speak it casually.

Sometimes I'd say "joak" while it should be "joat" for example

Good god, maybe a course would actually be a good idea! If you hadn't given me the translation I would never have guessed what the text in the second screenshot is supposed to mean, and I'm a native Dutch speaker :p

Maar dit bewijst het maar weer eens: ABN voor de win! :p
