I was wondering if it was possible to request languages? The one language right now I really want to learn besides French, German and Italian is Greek. Could we make this possible?

February 13, 2014


hi guys, I am a native greek speaker, and I have just applied to duolingo to contribute towards creating a greek course. I hope they take me up on the offer :)

January 30, 2015

Γειά σου Μιχάλη,

Good to know. I am a native Greek speaker and have also applied for contribution. Hopefully we can start working on this as soon as possible and make it the best duolingo language course yet!

February 12, 2015

Hello, I am from Romania, I ve been twice in Greece ( I love Rhodes - Rodos :D) And I want to learn some Greek words. Please create the couuuurse!!! Thank you!

December 15, 2015

Χιλία ευχαριστώ! I can't wait for this course!

January 30, 2015

Thank you so much!!! I hope they take you up on the offer too.

January 30, 2015

Yeeeees! :)

February 1, 2015

Have you gotten a reply yet (knowing if you will be contributing towards the course)? Sorry I am just really excited and can't wait to learn Greek!

April 21, 2015

I apologize, I guess I should have posted this earlier

yes I have gotten a reply a few days ago and its good news. I was not selected to contribute but the course is under way and Im guessing will be available some time in the future, hopefully soon :)

April 21, 2015

thank you! i have always wanted to go to Greece!

April 7, 2017

I started lesrning Greek, so I am happy that there are ambitious contributors like you!

March 30, 2018

I would like to see Greek too. It would be my next language :-)

February 14, 2014

I would LOVE to learn Greek. I am Greek(distantly) but I live in an English speaking only family so I never got to learn

April 4, 2014

UPDATE: Since I wrote this post a year ago, I feel it is my place to let you guys all know. THEY HAVE STARTED THE INCUBATION PHASE! We will have Greek soon!

March 2, 2015

Can't wait !!!

March 4, 2015

All languages are being applied to via the Incubator page. Find that here:

February 14, 2014

Haha, you guys are incubating Klingon XD.

February 23, 2014

That's awesome.

February 23, 2014

That would be the best thing! I love Greek!

February 15, 2014

Me too! Bring on the Greek :)

May 25, 2014

It has been requested, and it will eventually happen through the incubator. You just need to be patient!

February 13, 2014


February 13, 2014


February 13, 2014

Don't you speak greek, mptmpt? could you incubate the greek language? παρακαλώ?

September 22, 2014

Dying to get started on Greek but still no updates on the page :( Anyone know what's going on?

July 6, 2016

Could you also do new testament greek? That would be cool!

May 5, 2014

My kids and I would love this!!

June 3, 2014

Koine? No one speaks this language for like 1700 years :-)

May 5, 2014

That's ok! People want to learn it so they can study the Bible better. :)

June 3, 2014

Plenty of people speak Koine Greek. What you meant to say is no country has it as it's national language.

However, I'd be willing to bet you have a great many users use DuoLingo solely for learning Koine Greek.

May 10, 2014

It's actually understandable to modern speakers.

February 5, 2015

Yeah, and Biblical Hebrew too! Plus Latin and Classical Arabic. I feel like this would be a great help to those who are aspiring to enter religions like Judaism, Christianity or Islam and would want to read their bible. Well, I'd like to study Hebrew (since I'm trying to convert to Judaism,) and Latin since those two are really cool languages. Modern Greek too, since I feel like Greece is a country filled with culture. Hehe, it seems to me that I have a fetish for languages.

April 8, 2015

And Aramaic.

November 7, 2015

French was my second choice to Greek. But I really love duolingo so I would be so happy if we picked it up.

July 13, 2014

Would be brilliant to have Greek, definitely brilliant!

July 14, 2014

I would love to see Greek, when can we expect it?

July 8, 2014

I see Klingon and Dothraki but no Elvish?!

October 8, 2014

Yes, Greek Please! I've been waiting. The greek rosetta stone is not great. Duolingo Modern Greek will be sooooo much better and easier to use. PLEASE release a greek for english speakers!

October 16, 2014

I agree! Rosetta isnt as good as this one. Greek would be easier to learn on here Please

October 29, 2014

Hello, I am learning German right now, but I would love to see a course of Greek language as soon as possible. I adore everything that comes from Greece. Their language, food, and music especialy. Greetings from Serbia! :)

February 5, 2016

Hi Luigi.rodino,

I was wondering if it was possible to request languages?

Here what Duo says about it in its Help Center: "How can I suggest a new language course?

If you want to make a [course] suggestion, we encourage you to visit the forums and making a search for suggestions that have been made in the past, and adding your vote and comments to those existing posts. That will make the request more popular and make it stand out more, encouraging more people to add their votes. :)

Note: Texts in between square brackets are additions of mine.

April 2, 2016

I would like to see Greek too

June 4, 2014

same, i really want to learn Greek!!

June 19, 2014

Yes!!! That would be sweet. Then i could go to greece and speak greek!

September 22, 2014

Do please add Greek! My partner is greek and I need to learn to speak to her family properly. Rosetta stone just doesn't work as well as Duolingo

November 6, 2014

Ya learning Greek would be awesome. My uncle is Greek so it be cool to learn the language, even if I'm not genetically Greek

November 16, 2014

Yep, totally behind this too, if there's somewhere we vote on this or something, I'll get completely behind this!

December 1, 2014

I would love it if greek was added to duolingo

March 21, 2015

It has been added, the team is working on it as we speak!

March 23, 2015

Greek was available on the iphone app version of Duolingo, about a year ago. They must have taken it back down to create the full lessons? Or it was just in beta when I was using it? Either way, I'm excited for the Greek!

June 20, 2015

I WANT TO LEARN GREEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

October 19, 2015

yeah i am really into greek mythology and would love to learn the language

November 12, 2015

Is this proceeding? Would love to study Greek here!

December 3, 2015

Greek is in the incubator right now.

December 6, 2015

I'm so so so excited that they have started a Greek team, but it won't be out until January 2018!!! Is this usually how long it takes to make each language course??

December 10, 2015


December 10, 2015

Will this be a course on modern or ancient Greek. I am more concerned with the study of ancient texts and my limited knowledge on the subject is that there is a difference between the Greek Aristotle used, and the Greek used today.

December 15, 2015

This course is for modern greek. You can find ancient greek courses on

December 15, 2015

Please, make Greek available!!! want to be able to speak greek in my 2016 vacations in Greece. Greek people are more welcoming if you talk in greek.! please!!!

January 5, 2016

they need time to teach Greek languagesI don't know why

February 5, 2016

Very late, but it should be up in a few days!

February 10, 2016

when will they bring Greek language on duolingo

June 17, 2016

Idk but it seems to be taking forever

June 17, 2016

Looks like it's almost here (finally!) -

June 17, 2016

Ya finally

June 17, 2016

It's been pushed back twice now with no update. >_< I wish they would at least tell us what's going on. I'm so excited about this course, but it's been a roller coaster!

June 17, 2016

It would be nice if the greek course could be released in time. Actually the release date is on 15 june, but its still missing.

June 17, 2016

LET ME DO GREEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

June 18, 2016

Hi guys! When is the Greek (for English speakers) course expected to be released? I'm a native Greek speaker, αλλά ζω στην Αγγλία, και έχω δηλώσει το ενδιαφέρον μου να συνεισφέρω στο "χτίσιμο" των μαθημάτων! For any help, let me know!

Thanks! :)


June 22, 2016

Thanks. If you need any help in italian, feel free to ask!

June 22, 2016

Yes, any recommendations (besides Duolingo, of course :) ) of learning fast the basics to be able to communicate in Italy? Many thanks!!!


June 22, 2016

I suggest speaking as much as possible with natives and using duolingo alongside a course such as living language books or teach yourself books. You can go to or

June 24, 2016

A massive thank you, Luigi! :)

June 24, 2016

No problem :)

June 25, 2016

Greek Geek!

June 29, 2016 Greek going to be available anytime soon? The release date set for the beta has already passed. You didn't forget about it, did you? I hope to be able to start the Greek course soon.

July 13, 2016

Yes!! Learn that is something I also want to learn, greek!!

November 25, 2014

Yup, Greek would be definetly a great addition to duolingo! It would also be my next language.

December 24, 2014

Maybe doing Erasmus in Greece, so that would come in handy :)

February 3, 2015

I would love to speak Greek. My mom (whose entire side of the family is from Greece, although I'm not) has always wanted me to know Greek. I would really love it as well!

February 27, 2015

Same here :)

March 2, 2015

It would be so cool if you guys got greek! (new testament)

March 3, 2015

I can't wait! I am in love with the culture of Greece, so that will make me extremely happy if I could learn the language.

March 23, 2015

So is there any official news from Duolingo about when or if Greek will become available?

March 23, 2015

The incubator indicates that Greek will be done in about a year, however it changes daily a little bit, it all depends on the day. My guess is 3 to 5 months.

March 23, 2015

Please help me, I tried to go in as a greek speaker to learn English and now Duolingo thinks I am Greek. I am trapped and cannot find my way back to the English Version of Duolingo!! Help me!!

March 23, 2015

hover over the american flag next to your profile picture, click Πρόθεσε ένα νεό μάθημα. see where it says μιλάω? click the drop down box, find αγγλικα, click that link. Next what you're going to do is click any of the boxes that have a piece of architecture in them. Once you do that hit Μεταφερθείτε στο μάθημα. After you do that the website will again be in English.

March 23, 2015

Thanks 'Luigi.rodino' I am back in English. Thanks very much for your help Grant

March 23, 2015

No problem.

March 26, 2015

Greek would be awesome! <3

April 6, 2015

I would love it if greek was added to duolingo

April 7, 2015

Hi I would also like to learn Greek on Duolingo so I am waiting for it impatiently.

April 9, 2015

I would also like to learn greek

April 10, 2015

I would like to learn Greek as well. Please make this happen.

April 10, 2015

I also want to learn Greek. It will be a wonderful addition. Thank you Duolingo

April 10, 2015

I would be very useful for me if you had Greek available! :)

April 10, 2015

I studied 2 years of Koine Greek 10 years ago (along with 5 other languages during my degree), so learning modern Greek would be a great way for me to keep my skills alive. (Learning Italian on Babbel and then on here has really helped me remember my Latin too).

April 12, 2015

I'm currently learning Spanish on here but I know that I would like Greek to be the next language so I'm glad to hear it is in progress :)

May 8, 2015

Hi, I am also learning Spanish here and waiting for learning Greek on duolingo, for the time being started to learn Greek ( as well as continue in Spanish) on

May 12, 2015

I checked out the website and joined up. Thanks for letting me know about it. It looks like fun. think I will stick to practicing Spanish till I'm more proficient in it :)

May 12, 2015

you are welcome. Yes spanish is nice.)

May 12, 2015

Me too. : - ( But it's still in development - so it looks like we have to wait till late November 2016. Meanwhile learn Greek vocab at Memrise. See you back here in Nov 2016.

September 23, 2015

I would like to see Greek too. I can't wait for a long time-george

September 23, 2015

Yes, me too. I intend retiring there in a few years to my boat and really want to speak it!

October 2, 2015

I would really like to learn greek

October 16, 2015

Nice to see that the completion date has moved closer lately. Is there an ETA on the beta release?

December 31, 2015

It says August 20th

August 8, 2016

That's today, and it's still not availible.

August 20, 2016

....... and now showing 1 Jan 2017!!! It gets further away all the time!!! Very annoying.

August 21, 2016

I was anticipating this too and have been for years.Do kindly update the ETA as soon as you know when your recording to something a little more realistic. If they can finish Klingon and Esperanto in a timely manner I am sure they can with Greek.

August 21, 2016

They made one and its on the web.I don't get how to do it on the web.Someone help me!!

September 16, 2016

Nor me - it appears to require at least a working knowledge of the Greek alphabet and how it is written! Very odd!

September 16, 2016

If you're using Windows you can install the Greek keyboard and quickly flip to it by holding the windows key then press space bar. Then you can type in Greek. Not sure if that helps you out?

September 16, 2016

Greek requiring a Greek keyboard and alphabet shouldn't be that much of a shock if your trying to learn the language.

My question is why are they using Anglicanisms like popcorn and sandwich?

September 16, 2016

Wasn't the keyboard that threw me - fully expected that but to throw you in to requiring an understanding of the alphabet from scratch is a bit of a stretch!

September 17, 2016

Hi I was so looking forward to learning Greek but was disappointed at the content _ the French language course is much more accessible and user friiendky suits every learning style . The Greek is very dry and relies on the user pressing skip to learn the answer before learning the letter or word it also repeats correct answers endlessly

September 21, 2016

I know greek but I love it so much

November 4, 2016

thank you Dimetra for the last comment… I found the link and installed Greek keyboard… I'll systems Kalo
