Celtic Languages

I was delighted to see the introduction of Irish and Welsh into Duolingo's repertoire, but as a Manxman, I would like people to have the opportunity to be able to learn the tongues of the other Celtic nations; Cornish, Breton, Scottish Gaelic as well as my own language, Manx. As nations often viewed as culturally insignificant, I believe it is imperative that our languages are given the respect and opportunity to be learnt in order to keep the proud spirit of the Celts alive.

Va mee bwooisagh dy akin dy row Gaeilge as Bretnish aaghtit stiaght y chooid ec Duolingo, agh as Manninagh, by vie lhiam ve able dy ve shickyr ayns y fys dy vel caaghyn dy liooar ec dagh oilley pheiagh dy ynsagh ny ghlareyn Keltiagh.

The Duolingo staff and moderators have asked us to keep to only a single post for each language that's suggested, to keep the forums manageable. Have a look at this post about how to suggest a language course:

Manx has already been suggested and added to that page. If you want to add your upvote to the calls to add a Manx course to Duolingo, that's where to do so.

Hello! I suggest looking here. This may not work though as it didn't for someone else. Because it wasn't on there they couldn't get it on.
