Just curious. :)

I love how they're rolling out all these new languages in the incubator. My question is for the duolingo team or anybody who happens to know; when should we expect new courses for english learners to be released in the incubator? Anything that can help ease my mind would be greatly appreciated. Even a rough estimate would do.

Hi Gringacho!

You can get a rough estimate by looking at the courses that are already in Incubator.

Luis has said:

"Courses to learn other languages from English. Our strategy for adding courses has been to first do the ones to learn English from other popular languages, and once those are done and ironed out, start letting the same moderators work on the opposite direction. So, expect courses for learning Russian, Dutch, Turkish and Hungarian from English to be started in a few weeks. We expect the reverse courses to be completed much faster than the original ones because they are about 75% the same, and the user interface does not need to be localized."

I see new courses being made for overseas speakers to learn English, and I can't help but think 'Lucky them.... when will it be our turn?' :)

my best rough estimate is: most like when the courses incubated now are out of beta, or in the final stages of beta, they will include the reverse courses. Whether or not they add additional English to ??? course before that, I don't know. However, I doubt it. I think the easiest /safest way for them is to create the ?? to English courses first, and than reverse them… just a guess though.

It should be in the next few months, I believe.
