Special Update Number Two
We've been relatively slow with edits lately (other work commitments), but we are close to finalizing all of the audio exercises with the scrubbing, cutting, and final editing of the recordings!
A huge thank you to the entire community for helping us reach over 70,000 learners! We were at 50,000 just over a week ago, and we're marching on towards a huge milestone of 100,000 learners! We're thankful for all of you and the help you are giving us by continuing to report errors to make the course better. Of course, there will be issues, but we're looking forward to the lessons learned from our first tree and hopefully, graduating from Beta and designing a second tree that is deep and thorough. There are inherent challenges designing an African language course - challenges that often come from being in an East African country whose technological capacity and literacy is still growing - and your help on this journey has been invaluable!
We're hoping that the audio exercises will be available by the end of this month, if not by next!
Until then, tutaonana badaaye!
89%. Not much further to go with relative clauses.
Süreç devam ediyor! Процесс возобновля́ет!
Bugün kurs için ders notlarını ekliyoruz, ardından kurstaki cümleleri ve kelimeleri tamamlayacağız! Sizi herhangi yeni bir gelişmede buradan bilgilendiriyor olacağız.
Сегодня мы включа́ем примечание для курс, потом мы закончием предложения и слова в курсa! Мы будем сообща́ть вам в случае любого нового прогресса.
An early edition this week on a Saturday. As expected, slower progress, but we have a clear winner - Russian for Spanish!

The percentage for Japanese for English speakers isn't increasing because they don't have a good completion number and not because they don't have any progress yet, right? Are the current release date and complete percentage on the course page reasonable?
IIRC they're working on the course offline, and may not have time to estimate completion? Since they've opened up alpha testing, it seems like they're making some good progress, too!
Even more spooky is the fact that I have been disappearing and then reappearing this week. I like to keep you all on your toes.
Russian for Turkish update (based on the Russian version):
Today we are including the course notes; then we will finish the sentences and words in the course! We will inform you in case of any new progress.
Thank you so much for anticipating difficulty in being able to post this on Sunday and posting it earlier in response.
No higher percentages on all English courses this week ;-; Though it's cool to see Esperanto for Portuguese speakers with +2%.
