Sranan Tongo / Surinamese

Maybe duolingo should think about introducing Sranan Tongo?. The lingua franca of suriname. Is anyone interested in studying this language?

Have a look at this post about how to suggest a language: Sranan Tongo isn't listed yet - send a message to one of the list maintainers, and get it added.

Yes, I am very interested

How do I get this beautiful language listed?

I'd love a Sranan tongo course on Duolingo! Me and another user are going to make lessons and post them in the forums, to keep everybody waiting for Sranan tongo happy =D I'm currently learning it and it's a great language and has super easy grammar!

That's awesome that you're learning Sranan Tongo! English creoles are always so interesting.

Thanks! It's especially easy since it's an english creole with dutch and portuguese influence, Dutch being similar to English and Portuguese being a language that I'm studying at the moment!

I'm about to post a Sranan tongo lesson 1 on the forums, be on the lookout ;D

They do, put there are some local languages as well. And Sranan Tongo is a lingua franca together with Dutch.
