What other languages does Duolingo want to add in future? And when? Is there norwegian in your plans ? Thank you in advance for answers :)
Have you considered using user contributions to add many source-target language pairs?
Agreed - Swahili would be nice. Not good enough to help on the tree, but would love to continue learning it on here.
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
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)
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!
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
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!
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!
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!
Ooo, goody. Will it be Mandarin or Cantonese? I guess we'd be typing pinyin?
i'd love to study russian in duolingo. i alreaddy know the basics but it takes too much practice to keep what you learn.
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.
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.
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:(
Russian please. That would be very, very nice. Don't need to learn Norwegian; it's my mother tongue, haha.
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 :)
Danish would be amazing. Even if they made it for a price I would indulge.
Duolingo people are ......, are they interested in klingon and not persian? or yiddish, only spoken by 1.5mill people when farsi is spoken by 100mill people. I don't understand.... It's sad.
i couldnt agree more! How persian is not already part of the community is ridiculous.
