Yiddish is alive!

A few weeks ago I saw a sad post about Yiddish losing another contributor and only having one left.

Thankfully, now two new contributors have joined the team! Congratulations to the Yiddish team for finding two new, skilled and committed contributors :)

They were the same two contributors who left, they dont do anything that I atleast see, like they dont post any updates since 11 months ago, and they dont reply to messages for over a few months..... so dont get too excited..

There are also atleast two other Yiddish speakers who want to become contributors. Lets hope they can be added and speed Yiddish up (posts here https://www.duolingo.com/comment/15063424 and here https://www.duolingo.com/comment/12643000 )

When is the course released? Is it still in progress? Has it given up? It was ETA 7/7/18. I hope it comes soon -- I want to start learning this year.

I also would like to know. I see that Yiddish has been in phase one of development for four years now, and the most recent update was a year ago. Is it still in the works? If not, what can we do to resurrect it??

Sorry if it's a stupid question, but why there is no Yiddish course here: https://www.duolingo.com/courses

There is, it just doesn't have the flag or monument to represent it yet. https://incubator.duolingo.com/courses/yi/en/status

I think the question is why there's no entry for Yiddish on https://www.duolingo.com/courses, despite there being a course in the Incubator. I'm curious to know why.

Like they said, it doesn't have a flag or monument yet, so it can't be displayed on /courses.

Ok, thanks. Is it the course team that add the flag and monument?

So glad! That was my sad thread! I also was bugging Luis Van Ahn on twitter to please help preserve Yiddish & approve some people to work on it! And I think it worked!

Who knows! Though I think that asya.000 has more to do with it than LvA. At the end of the day they are all volunteers.

קורס אידיש בדואלינגו יכול להיות משהו פשוט אדיר. אני חושב לפנות לבית שלום עליכם בתל-אביב ולברר אם יש אצלם מישהו שיכול לתרום לפרויקט הזה.
