Hello,I'm A Russian and my hobby is learning languages.I have relatives from Sakha but they're Russian.Sakha is an endangered language and I want to learn it so if Duolingo could take into consideration adding Sakha then I'd appreciate it.

Have a look at this post about how to suggest a language course: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/15014194.

Sakha hasn't been suggested yet - you might want to get in contact with Lrtward or Jrikhal to get it added.

Thanks for the shout-out, hughcparker :)
Yakut (Sakha) has now been added to the guide.

With 450 000 native speakers I wouldn't consider it to be endangered.

I doubt that Duolingo will ever add this language, but you can never know. Meanwhile I would learning it on Memrise instead

UNESCO has Yakut on its list of endangered languages although classified as Vulnerable, not Endangered. I don't think Russian minority languages in general are that well-protected even though Yakut seems to have a reasonably strong foothold in Sakha Republic.

They've added languages a whole lot "smaller" than this one. Granted, it might be more feasible in many ways as a course for Russian speakers, which would probably make it quite underappreciated by the folks in Pittsburgh. Russian-language Duolingo is in my opinion the most vibrant corner after English of the ones I'm familiar with.

I would love it! I've been hopeful that one day some of the smaller languages of Russia would make an appearance here!

There is a Memrize course, but no duolingo-formatted resources
