* This week's Leader Extraordinaire!
^ The Hindi, Czech, Swahili, Spanish (for Arabic), & Tamil teams' progress is as per their own calculation
Here's what the contributing teams have said during the last week:
(For Phase-1 and Phase-2 courses by default, and for Phase-3 courses per request).
We are in Beta!
finalmente anche questo importante traguardo è arrivato. Da oggi siamo finalmente in Beta! Buon divertimento a tutti!
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.
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).
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.

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.
You're welcome :) I sincerely want to thank YOU and all of the users that have been supportive in our endeavors :)
Happy New Year JitenGore!
2017, looking forward to this year of Hindi & Swahili !
Beautiful work as always jitengore. Thanks for doing this for us every week.
Thank you for making these updates, jitengore! Incubator teams are amazing and it's great to see and celebrate everyone's progress like this <3
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 :)
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.
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...
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.
