Liebe alle,

satdeep from Team Punjabi wrote 6 days ago:

10% completion of the course

We are so delighted to share with you that 10% course has been completed and this 5% growth has come about in only one week. We are determined to work hard and to start this course as soon as possible.

nueby from Team Czech wrote 3 days ago:

Week 79

80%. Yey. With that milestone, maybe it is time to start looking for a TTS engine. IVONA does not speak Czech. So far I have played with the female voice at iSpeech and the few male and female (2.10) versions at SpeechTech. Iva 2.10 sounds the best of the bunch IMO, although she has some problems with the intonation of question word questions (it all sounds like she is asking yes/no questions).

Eradus from Team Korean wrote 3 days ago:

Things might be going slow...

Course progress has slowed in the last two months due to our lives outside of the Incubator. However, we are not looking for more contributors. We are satisfied with the current number of contributors and will reconsider later in the year. Also, when applying remember to be the most detailed as possible (general rule). It is going to be beneficial in the end.

TL;DR

TBD

Sadly, it's not this year though...but hopefully they'll finish before their serious completion date.

I don't mean to bother, I really appreciate all the volunteers. I want to say a sincere thank-you, and that I'm happy for whenever it comes out so long as I'm still alive to enjoy it.

I am so, so happy that German for Italian speakers finally made it to beta. Another cross-tree for me :)

Slow progress with Swedish for Russian - yet it would be so excellent to help me learn both languages :)

Also Japanese for English made a brief appearance in the Incubator.

And staff said it was a mistake. Twice.

I still think it's good news as it probably shows an interest on the team's side and that they're working on it. That said, I don't expect it for a good number of years still. Sadly.

Luis von Ahn said on his AMA that Japanese was coming this year. Not sure whether he meant into the incubator or the whole course though.

January 25, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/VincentOostelbos

I did see that since making the above comment. What tremendous news! To be absolutely clear, he did say "hopefully", and even then I expect it to be just into the incubator, as the incubator process itself often takes about a year, but still, that's better than expected, for me. Extremely excited for that one :)

Given that there were no contributors listed either, it wasn't hard to come to that conclusion...

January 17, 2017

That's the best news I've heard all year :) I hope it resurfaces!

I'm really curious about how close Swahili is to being done. Looking forward to it a lot.

I also wonder if there'll be a reverse course for Tagalog for English learners. I know so many Filipinos, I'd love to know what they're talking about on Facebook.
