Have you considered using user contributions to add many source-target language pairs?


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

Norwegian would indeed be excellent! :)


[deactivated user]

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

    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

    Norwegian! :)


    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

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Redley78

    i couldnt agree more! How persian is not already part of the community is ridiculous.
