Guaraní?! i had no idea! is this the first native american language in here?

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/avrichard

Yep.

You'll need to know Spanish to do the course though.

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/carloscids

I'm chilean ;)

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/avrichard

Perfect! It will be interesting to see it... Soy australiano, pero entiendo basta español para hacer el curso :P

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/carloscids

Nice! (small correction though, it's "bastante" or better "bastante bien" not "basta")

April 17, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/avrichard

Haha, yeah I knew it was wrong but couldn't remember what it should be. I haven't used Spanish regularly in years... he olviado mucho. I still mostly understand it though. I took a Basque course through Spanish a little while ago, although that hurt my brain.

April 18, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/carloscids

avrichard, that's Euskera right? i realized recently that in my university they're doing a course about Euskera, i was thinking wether i should do it some day.. i don't really know much about it

April 19, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/avrichard

Yep, Basque = Euskera / Euskara, also Vasco etc.

April 19, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/carloscids

I have to admit though that i'd rather learn a native language from my own country first, like Mapudungun or Rapanui which i know it's unlikely that i'll see them in here.. still very happy that there is Guaraní and hopefully people add more native american languages

April 17, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jrikhal

it's unlikely that i'll see them in here.. [...] hopefully people add more native american languages

Not really that unlikely, see here for some hope. ;)

I couldn't help but notice, Greek is estimated to come the day before my birthday! XD

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-BellaLuna-

Yay!

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/blue_basket_girl

Oh, and could you make a beta section? Like, which languages are in beta and which aren't? This is a great post! :D

EDIT: It helped! ;)

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-BellaLuna-

I'll try! Thank you for think so!

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/blue_basket_girl

:D

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-BellaLuna-

:D And thank you for saying it helped!

Greeks comes the day when my exams start :(

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-BellaLuna-

Oh. Well good luck on your exams!

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Anneysha7

Whoa! What a surprise!!! Hebrew on my Birthday???

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/blue_basket_girl

My birthday is the day after that!!!!!!!!

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Anneysha7

Quite a coincidence, isn't it?

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/blue_basket_girl

:D

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-BellaLuna-

Cool!

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jessica4201

Looks good, except Czech's estimated release is in April 2017, not 2016. =P

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/blue_basket_girl

I totally thought this was sarcasm at first... XD

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-BellaLuna-

Thought what was sarcasm? My reply to Jessica4201? No! Not at all!

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/blue_basket_girl

No, what she said. I mean, some languages go through estimation dates after estimation dates after estimation dates! So I guessed that was her estimation date. (Sarcastically) But then I checked and I was wrong. Lol

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-BellaLuna-

Lol Can't blame me. I wrote these down and accidently put Czech. It was past my bedtime :)

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-BellaLuna-

Thank you for telling me that!

A recommendation: for the non-manually set dates (you can see it on the incubator page where the updates are) I would not use an exact day but a month.

April 16, 2016

Hi Frenchatrix,

See here the last release of the Weekly Incubator Update ("Weekly Incubator Update: Tracking Progress from April 3rd to April 10th").

You may want to enter in contact with its author to avoid both be doing a duplicate work. ;)


EDITION: I had forgotten the word "avoid", edited. ;)

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-BellaLuna-

Okay, but how? May you explain how we would be able to do a duplicate work? Thank you

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jrikhal

May you explain how we would be able to do a duplicate work?

It's quite what's happening right now: both of your discussion and the WIU are listing the courses that are in the incubator with their date of estimated release.
So it's like doing the job twice, one being the duplicate of the other and vise-versa.


EDIT: I noted there was a missing word in my previous comment. Sorry. ;)

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HeyItsOcarina

click Nice. :)

Do you think that people could create an elvish and cherokee language for everyone?

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-BellaLuna-

I don't know, but that would be cool.

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/hickory_2120

thanks I would really like those languages on here

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-BellaLuna-

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/hickory_2120

I barely know Elvish and know no cherokee

April 16, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/hickory_2120

April 16, 2016

I'm not sure if a moderator or admin would agree to this, but you may want to ask a moderator to sticky this!!! It is all important : )

April 17, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-BellaLuna-

Thank you, but I can't be doing a duplicate work, as jrikhal said earlier.
