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

Do you read the Torah in Hebrew?

May 11, 2013

https://www.duolingo.com/S0R0USH

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

December 14, 2013

https://www.duolingo.com/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)

December 14, 2013

https://www.duolingo.com/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!

January 20, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/vkd1

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

January 21, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/chiemseelake

January 13, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/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!

May 12, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/ClassicBookworm

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

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.
