Judging by http://incubator.duolingo.com/apply, at least Arabic, Bengali, Traditional Chinese, Esperanto, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Klingon(?), Punjabi, and Swedish are going to be added in the foreseeable future.

Which excites you most? Personally I'm eager to pick up my Arabic again. Might give Esperanto a spin just for fun.

I've got enough "real" languages to tide me over for a while, so I'll probably go for Esperanto.

Oddly, in this post there are more Klingon enthusiasts than Esperantists, so put me down for Esperanto!

I am checking more than once a day the discussion and the incubator for any news on this. Esperanto uses Latin script with much less diacritics than French or Portuguese and has a small and regular set of phonemes, I am hopeful it won't be too long! Is it wishful thinking?

I wouldn't say Esperanto has a small set of phonemes. 5 vowels plus some diphthongs, 22 consonants with a lot of clusters.

IMO, it would be better if their were slightly fewer consonants, but it's not a big deal, because there is little semantic weight put on the similar pairs of consonants, so if you conflate Jxo with Gxo, it isn't a big deal.

I thought that since every letter has only one pronunciation meant it had fewer phonemes. Still, easier than most, specially English (one that I haven't completely mastered after so many years).

I'd love to learn some High Valyrian on Duolingo. The problem with Dothraki and High Valyrian though is that no one is fluent in either, including David Peterson, the creator of both of those languages. He posts about both Dothraki and High Valyrian here http://www.dothraki.com/

People seem really concerned about the fluency issue when it comes to conlangs, but honestly I think Duo will make an exception with conlangs and people won't need to be fluent, just good enough to build the course.

I'd like to see Esperanto for English speakers and Japanese for German.

The first is just for fun, but the second would reinforce the German I learned here while I learn Japanese so I practice both at the same time.
