December 29, 2012

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

June 12, 2012

Russian should be in the near future!

April 16, 2013

Norwegian, please! :-)

March 25, 2013

Norwegian? Danish?

May 31, 2013

Please consider adding Yiddish.

June 13, 2012


May 9, 2013

Do you read the Torah in Hebrew?

May 11, 2013

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

December 14, 2013

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)

December 14, 2013

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!

January 20, 2014

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

January 21, 2014

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

October 27, 2013

I would love to learn Russian with this format

January 22, 2014

Norwegian would be great

December 10, 2012

August 10, 2013

August 16, 2013

December 20, 2013

Russian and Danish would be great! :)

January 5, 2014

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!

January 13, 2014

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!

May 12, 2014

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

June 11, 2012

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

I want to learn Norwegian.

January 3, 2014

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

January 9, 2014

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.

January 25, 2014

Romanized Farsi!

January 26, 2014

why not Cyrillic?

July 12, 2014

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

January 10, 2015

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.

December 8, 2012

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

February 7, 2013

How can we make this happen?

November 11, 2013

Agreed! Can't wait for duolingo farsi!

November 11, 2013

July 24, 2013

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

August 3, 2013

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 :)
