Who wants to learn Catalan language?

Those last days I am thinking about so easy would be introducing Catalan language in duolingo incubator.

To start we could build "Catalan for Spanish speakers" so a lot of people will participate and soon the course will be done. Then I am sure we will not have much problems to make "Catalan for English speakers".

Unfortunately doulingo does not offer Catalan option, because of that I write this post: how many people would like to learn this language? Maybe we could ask collectively to doulingo to add Catalan option.

Thank everybody to read me! :)

Hallo zusamen!

Yesterday I made the application to introduce Catalan language in Duolingo. Thank you everybody for your commentaries and your support.

I hope you can learn Catalan soon! :)

Jo també us podria ajudar. No sóc català (visc als Estats Units) però si fan un curs per angloparlants podria revisar els texts i explicacions angleses (i potser vosaltres podríeu revisar les meves traduccions al català ;) ). Si el curs es fa en castellà no crec que necessitareu la meva ajuda, tot i així m'agradaria participar ja que m'encantaria moltíssim que el català estigués disponible aquí a Duolingo!

Good reference to learn Catala by yourself!

February 23, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/le-lapin-noir

Wow...I can read this! XD Makes me want a Spanish/English to Catalan course! You can apply at the Incubator and if you find more Catalan speakers who are interested in contributing, have them apply also. When Duo gets enough qualified applicants, they might allow the course to be created.

February 23, 2014

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

I checked incubator and only I can do is apply to start a course of Spanish for Catalan speakes, which has not too much sense...

Am I right?

February 23, 2014

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

Catalan isn't unheard of, and I think you would receive a lot of interest from the Hispanosphere as well as people interested in learning the language of other language backgrounds.

February 22, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/le-lapin-noir

You can also apply for an English for Catalan speakers course, and do the reverse when that is completed. Once Catalan is in the system with a complete tree, you could probably do a Catalan for Spanish speakers course without the reverse. Not 100% sure though.

February 21, 2014

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

I would definitely take the Catalan course. Catalan is the only language not on Duolingo yet that I'd like to learn.

February 21, 2014

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

You can always apply through the Incubator for a Catalan course. If you're fluent in Catalan & English, I'm sure the Duo staff will look and consider your application. I know there's been a few posts like this recently about Catalan, maybe use the search feature to find those posts (of those who are interested in making a course) and maybe you and some others could team up together ahead of the course being made. It'd be nice to learn along side Spanish, especially as I'm interested in one day visiting Barcelona - and I know some areas speak more Catalan than they do Spanish.

February 21, 2014

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

JaneEmily, I am thing about you told me in your post... I think that my English level is not enough to make a course... :(

February 23, 2014

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

Well what you could do is practise your English from Spanish until it improves in fluency :) Practise makes perfect.

February 23, 2014

Oh, I would love this language. I have tried with a site called Memrise. I like how many languages the site has, but I think Duolingo's learning strategies are so much better, the words just stick in my head so much better here, and I want it so bad, but sadly I cannot do anything for it :(

Occitan is the only other real "major" Occitan language, and it's only spoken by ~700,000 people, while Catalan is spoken by ~6,000,000!

¡Pidos! Yo me apunto. Quiero aprenderlo; "Catalan for Spanish speakers".

February 13, 2015

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

I'd love to learn Catalan. I made a post about this myself fairly recently. If Duolingo had Catalan, I would definitely start learning it.

February 15, 2015

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

Okay... so there seems to be a LOT of people who either speak Catalan and English and Spanish -- a lot of whom want to help build the Duolingo Catalan course.

And... there seems to be a lot of people, like me!, who would definitely learn Catalan if it was on here...

And... the support for the course seems to be longstanding, not fleeting...

Therefore... why the h*ll isn't It happening?

February 15, 2015

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

Like many other people here I sent the application a couple of weeks ago to contribute and to help coordinate a Catalan for English speakers course. One possibility was that Duolingo was somewhat hesitant in adding languages that are not among the "big" ones, but the recent addition of Yiddish could very well point to a more open (while keeping the quality standard) admission policy. At least I hope so.

February 16, 2015

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

I hope so, man. Catalan has far more speakers than Irish and more than Danish and almost as many as Swedish

February 16, 2015

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

I applied a couple of months ago. No reply at all, even though the application form says they will get back to you in a couple of weeks.

I'm a native English speaker. We definitely have enough people, including native speakers of both langauges. And as you and Bryan point out, there is no reason not to add Catalan when Danish, Swedish, and Irish are already available and Yiddish is in development.

I think an English course for Catalan speakers, which is the first course we'd develop, would be extremely popular. We'd get articles in Ara and Vilaweb for sure.

February 18, 2015

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

I totally agree with you, kalliona

February 18, 2015

February 21, 2014

The question is: speacially Catalan?

February 22, 2014

I'm sure it's going to be there soon! :D

February 23, 2014

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

I'm also looking forward to Catalan, and I guess it might come someday, but probably after a few more popular (more widely spoken) languages

February 23, 2014

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

I hope soon we will have catalan in @Duolingo. Besides, there is already Klingon language...

February 23, 2014

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

I'm pretty sure Catalan would come before Klingon ;-)

February 24, 2014

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

Are you sure? There are Freaks everywhere! :D

February 24, 2014

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

In the meantime I indeed noticed that Klingon is in the list of languages you can volunteer for although I hope it's not supposed to be taken too seriously :-)

February 24, 2014

Klingon is no longer in vogue because Star Trek isn't. All about Dothraki and High Valerian these days! 8-)

Ei @aorejas! Fa aproximadament dos mesos vaig escriure a la incubadora de Duolingo perquè em deixessin fer el curs d'anglès (preferentment el britànic) per a catalanoparlants però no he rebut cap resposta. Pel que veig, permeten fer fins a tretze cursos a la primera fase de la incubadora alhora i, quan l'acaben, s'acumulen a la fase beta esperant que s'estabilitzi el curs. Si de cas, insistiré més perquè Duolingo permeti fer aquest curs i a partir d'aquí fer-ne molts més. Espero que més catalanoparlants facin aquest pas per pressionar l'equip de Duolingo. Moltes gràcies per llegir-me.

Perfecte Joaquim, poc a poc anem fent sol.licituds i de ben segur que el català serà present al duolingo.

Jo també estic esperant resposta de la meva proposta de català per a castellanoparlants, però potser estaria bé si algú també s'anima a escriure a la plataforma i demanar-lo.

March 12, 2014

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

Has rebut alguna resposta? Com podem escriure'ls per a demanar que ho afegeixin? Jo també m'apunto per ajudar amb la creació (i potser la moderació també) del curs, la meva llengua materna és l'anglès així que puc ajudar-te amb la traducció anglesa del curs.

EDIT: Jo també vaig fer una sol·licitud, a veure què em diuen...

March 17, 2014

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

Encara no m'han dit res... Suposo que l'adhesió de cursos va una mica lenta, la gent del Duolingo no volen que se'ls hi escapi de les mans. De totes maneres crec que, l'única manera de fer "pressió", és anar enviant sol•licituds i sobretot participant en aquest fòrum!

Si tens l'anglès com a llengua materna, perfecte! De ben segur que hi podràs col•laborar i moderar. Moltes persones t'ho agrairien, ja que no hi ha molta oferta d'aprenentatge del català a nivell internacional. :)

March 17, 2014

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

Bé espero que responguin aviat! Jo ja vaig enviar la meva sol·licitud, suposo que ara no puc fer més que esperar.

I sí, és veritat que no hi ha moltes opcions a l'hora d'estudiar el català, però els recursos que tenim (com Assimil i Parla.cat) són boníssims! A més d'això pots veure la tele, escoltar la radio, llegir fins afartar-se, tot en català! El català és molt viu i molt present, espero que segueixi així! :)

Fa una any que Aorejas van encetar aquest forum per fer realitat un somni de moltes persones. I des de llavors no han donat cap senyal de "vida". No vull menystenir absolutament cap de les llengües que estan en procés de construcció, però segueixo sense entendre el perquè no responen cap de les solicituds que molts de nosaltres hem enviat al llarg d'aquest any.

El que sí trobaria molt interessant és que hi hagués alguna proposta, i que així se'n donguessin compte a "duolingo" que hi ha una voluntat ferma. I com fer-ho?

Què us semblaria si la gent que participat en aquest forum o en altres paral.lels es fes una llista de persones voluntarioses i capacitades (i amb compromís, que no sigui dit!) per portar a terme la construcció del tan somniat curse en diferents idiomes (anglès, espanyol, francès, alemany, italià, etc.)

Hi ha molt potencial arreu del principat i també a molts racons del món que frissen per poder-hi posar el granet de sorra.

Us seré sincers: tinc enveja "sana" de tots els cursos que han iniciat el seu propi camí...segueixo els missatges pacienment per veure com es van formant, setmana rera setmana, llegint els comentaris, les aportacions, les raons, etc.

El que no em puc creure és que ens segueixin ignorant! és, com a mínim, per justícia.

Enhorabona i endavant tots i per a tots!

Por lo que entiendo el funcionamiento de duolingo y sobre todo del incubador, tienen que registrarse la sufficiente cantidad de personas para tener luego entre 3 y 8 personas capacitadas y elegidas despues de unos test y entre estos un o dos moderadores. O sea todos estos post de apoyo son utiles sobre todo para encontrar gente voluntaria que se inscribe en el incubador y luego una parte de estos puden empezar de hacer el suenyo realidad. entiendo que el proceso de empezar depende solo de una cantidad minima de voluntarios qualificados. ¿Me equivoco? Existe transparencia de los voluntarios cualificados antes de ser empezado como fase 1? http://duolingo.wikia.com/wiki/Frequently_asked_questions/Incubator How does Duolingo decide which language to add? The decision is based on the "number of qualified candidates to build the course,... number of people who want to learn the language... and how easy it will be to build the course with current tools" [5]. Currently Duolingo is adding new courses slowly in order to make sure everything in the Incubator is working properly[3], but they plan on adding courses for as many as 50 more languages in 2014[4].

Sabem que tenim prou gent per començar a fer els cursos anglès-català i català-anglès, però Duolingo no ens ha dit res.

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/whitefield12

Jo m'hi he apuntat avui, per fer-lo des de l'anglès. Pot ser que una de les dificultats del català sigui la baixa qualitat dels lectors de text automàtic?

March 7, 2015

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

No ho crec, altres dels idiomes que s'han obert fins ara també tenen uns lectors automàtics bastant penosos. A més, pensa en el cas irlandès, on van fer àudios expressament pel curs.

Let's make a list of volunteers who speak English and Catalan. Maybe if we can show that we are a group that is ready to work, rather than a random collection of people who have submitted incubator applications over the past two years, we can get the course approved more quickly.

username (native language)

ChuckyBlairBass (Catalan) crush (English) geekest_cat (Catalan) Guillem91 (Catalan) kalliona (English) whitefield12 (?)

I'm sure I've forgotten someone. Please add people to the list as needed. And if you've been included but don't actually want to participate, let me know and I'll remove your name.

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

Hey, good idea. We could even try to link us with a Google groups or similar, so we can start to connect and to talk about the courses. I've just seen that message about the Catalan for Spanish speakers below (from 2 weeks ago), so I'm sure we could even also help and coordinate with them. It'd be great to have a joint team, as things could go much faster this way.

I made a group: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/cateng-duolingo

The group is mainly for people who have volunteered to help create the ENG-CAT and CAT-ENG courses. But anyone who is interested in getting these courses approved is welcome to join as well. Discussions can be in both English and Catalan.

I would love to learn Catalan! I was devastated to learn that it was not on Duolingo, as I am going to Catalonia in the very near future and want to be able to at least order food! I know enough Spanish to get by, but I want to respect the Catalonian culture of independence and speak to them in their own language.

En las opciones de lenguajes a enseñar esta hasta el fondo hay una opción de introducir otro lenguaje(con el teclado), pues ahí puedes introducir Catalá, para Español(castellano).

Bueno, el catalán des dell castellano puede tener una función social en Espanya, sobretodo en Catalunya. En ese sentido, seguro que el gobierno catalán daría algún tipo de apoyo.

Por otro lado, el catalán des del inglés estaría bien porqué mucha gente de Europa lo quiere aprender. Por ejemeplo, en muchas universidades de Alemania se ensenya, con lo cual @Duolingo sería una buena herramienta para ellas (dado que no siempre es fácil encontrar profesorado calificado).

no... encara no.... Crec que la cosa anirà per llarg, ja que, per exemple, el curs d'holandès es publicarà a l'octubre del 2014.... :S

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

El curs d'holandès ja es va publicar (al menys la versió en beta) i encara cap resposta.

August 9, 2014

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

Bé... haurem de tenir paciència... almenys el neerlandès té més parlants que el català... crec.

August 9, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mr.pointy

Segons Wikipedia, té al voltant de 23 milions de parlants, molt més que el català.

Crec que la comparació millor seria l'irlandès, una altra llengua minoritària, la qual té un curs en desenvolupament a Duolingo, encara que té molt menys parlants natius.

Potser que algú ha de proposar un curs de català per als castellanoparlants, en benefici dels immigrants a Catalunya. Després que hi ha una presència de la llengua catalana a Duolingo, es pot proposar un curs per als angloparlants.

August 9, 2014

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

Bé, que sigui per als angloparlants o per als castellanoparlants m'és igual, ja que com dius penso que l'un vol dir que l'altre arribarà poc desprès.

I no me'n queixo, estic molt content que hagin acceptat l'irlandès, però al meu parer l'irlandès no és pas tant viu com el català (i moltes d'altres llengües). Per exemple, segons intercat.cat el català té uns 6 mil llibres publicats cada any (però a mi em sembla que són més de 6 mil).

Suposo que es tracta més de trobar gent qualificada i que hi hagi prou interès per la llengua. No ho sé, però crec que hi ha prou interès pel català, potser encara no han trobat persones amb un nivell suficient d'ambdues llengües? Suposo que hauran rebut moltes sol·licituds per moltes llengües diferents..

I see there are many people asking in the incubator for a "Catalan for Spanish/English" speakers, and I would love and probably contribute to that option as well. Maybe the developers would consider opening it if we first ask for an "English for Catalan speakers" course (A Spanish for Catalan speakers would make no sense, since more than 95% of Catalan speakers are bilingual in Spanish, for those of you who aren't Catalan or Spanish).

Just take a look at the languages; English for Vietnamese/Chinese/Greek... speakers. There aren't courses to learn most of them yet, but they are being developed first as "English for" rather than "X for English".

¿No sería más fácil obtener aprobación del staff de Duolingo si se inicia con un "Catalan for English speakers"? Puede que aún Duolingo no haya querido dar el visto bueno pues piensan que sería mejor en Inglés ya que el Catalán y el Español son muy parecidos, entonces sería mejor empezar por Inglés ya que para un hispanoparlante aprender catalán tampoco resulta muy complicado, en cambio un angloparlante requiere de más apoyo...

March 22, 2015

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

Están hechas también las peticiones para el inglés, pero parece que los desarrolladores prefieren empezar por el castellano.

This is fantastic! Maybe (just maybe) the fact we aren't answered or being noticed is in writing correctly the name of the language. I mean, I don't know if I have to write "català", "catalan" or "catalán".
