https://www.duolingo.com/profile/agm02188

Russian, Japanese and Arabic would be cool. Also Icelandic.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/kowal5ki

I would love a Norwegian course too!


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

Hi all, Luis I am a big fan of Duolingo and really believe this is a great concept of learning and contributing at the same time, Being a native German i think there would be a big market if you had similer to the Spanish to English also other languages than English as starting point for learning other languages. E.g. German, Italian, French to xyz. How are you approaching that


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jbigs89

Russian should be in the near future!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/anni44

Norwegian, please! :-)


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

Norwegian? Danish?


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

Add Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Greek, Latin and Swedish. I'm planning on learning all of those sooner or later. Please let it be sooner, High School is boring. ;D


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

I would love to learn Russian with this format


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

Please consider adding Yiddish.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Matt.Cooksey

Yessssss!!!!!!!!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Matt.Cooksey

Do you read the Torah in Hebrew?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/S0R0USH

Hebrew is not Yiddish right? Yiddish is more like German or something.


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

Yiddish is the Jewish dialect of German(well the only one that survived). I do think that Yiddish may be a good bridge between European languages and Semitic languages(Hebrew, Arabic, Aramaic, etc.) because Yiddish is said to be learned quite easily from German, and is pretty easy to learn from Hebrew(I speak Hebrew fluently and I understand most Talmud Aramaic)


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

Yiddish has words from wherever the Jews lived in Europe. It has a lot words from German, Russian, even French and Polish. It's written with the Hebrew alphabet, the same way, from right to left.

I'm using Duolingo to review my German, and would love to learn Yiddish!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vkd1

Yeah, I have seen Yiddish on Memrise and reckon its worth a try!


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

Norwegian would be great


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

What about Norwegian? :) it's quite simple, I'd love to learn this language on duolingo! And I see that many people wants the same!


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

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

Norwegian would be really awesome :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mara.ashby

Well, I am wating for Norwegian :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/pauline_24

what about swedish? :)


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

Swedish would be very cool as well :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vkd1

Ok, all those Nordic languages, I agree would be fab. I am going to check out Memrise & see what they offer. I


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/hediye1

add English for Persian


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

Russian and Danish would be great! :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Wolfine152

OMG that would be amazing!!! I have friends and family in Denmark and I really want to be able to speak to them in Danish! plus everyone is dying to get that Russian in!


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

Danish could be a real challenge for the developers. I'm actually teaching myself danish via a book called "DANISH MADE NICE & EASY". The reason Danish is hard firs especially for a person like me, because my mother tongue has only six vowels. For the sake of the argument, Danish has near 27+ VOWELS!


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

Ooo, goody. Will it be Mandarin or Cantonese? I guess we'd be typing pinyin?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vkd1

You guys crack me up! Pop over to www.memrise.com There are more than 10,000 Norwegian words there, plus at least some of another 200 languages. Even Yiddish!


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

I'd love to learn Norwegian!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/beata.blazewicz

What about Scandinavian languages? E.g. Norwegian?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Shaho.F

Russian please !!


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

I want to learn Norwegian.


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

i'd love to study russian in duolingo. i alreaddy know the basics but it takes too much practice to keep what you learn.


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

Russian would be amazing. French and Spanish are widely available. But if you guys hit up Russian first with this kind of site- expect huge support from people everywhere. especially with all the things happening in the news.


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

Romanized Farsi!


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

Swahili & Icelandic get my vote (: WOOOO!!!


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

I would love to see Persian added. I suppose it is a big jump to language with a non-Latin script, though. Have you looked into getting some grants from the Defense department? They fund a lot of language teaching research.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/K.JAM

Farsi or "Persian" would be awesome to learn and it would so useful


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

How can we make this happen?


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

Romanized Farsi would be a great start!


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

Tagalog for days! I haven't learned Tagalog and I'm actually Filipino. I haven't been able to find a source that helps me learn it:(


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

Please add Farsi/Persian!!!


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

Agreed! Can't wait for duolingo farsi!


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

Russian please. That would be very, very nice. Don't need to learn Norwegian; it's my mother tongue, haha.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vkd1

Lets face it any language is gold! Looking forward to anything that comes along :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/erin.specht8

Any of the Scandinavian languages would be great! My friend and I are planning on learning Finnish, and if it was on here this is the method I would use. Also, African languages would really be fun as well :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/brownie58
