Sentences!

"All the words for this course have been added for every skill. We will be working on sentences in order to get this completed soon! That's remarkable progress, considering that this is their first update! I'm excited for what this course will have to offer."

They seem to be working at lightning speed. I'm getting really excited!

Finally! I just remembered that their Course Date was April 30th. Huh. Maybe they were just really really really busy in their personal lives.

June 30th. That's 3 incubator courses working at lightning speed!

  • Japanese

  • Korean

  • Haitian Creole!

They only started in the incubator about 3 months ago. Having all the words in already is amazing.

And without:

  • any sign of progress showing on their meter (which is obvious, considering they practically have 0 sentences, but seriously, meter, show some word progress and stuff like that!)

  • any updates!!!!! (Okay, Japanese's last update was 2 months ago, and Korean's 3 weeks ago, but still!!!! (Wow, okay, sorry, I sounded like a real Joy there for a sec)

They started working on the course before it went online in the incubator. Duolingo has planned to have Japanese a while ago. Even before Japanese appeared in incubator, there's Japanese script in Tinycards and now there's a new script there!

Which course? Japanese or Haitian Creole? I'm very sure you mean Japanese.

This sounds super interesting. I hope one day Duolingo can get the Cape Verdean version of Creole online, that'd be fascinating. Until then, I'll be eagerly awaiting the Haitian version. :)

Anything new on this? I originally joined Duolingo for Haitian Creole, and have been waiting ever since.

That's incredible in such a short period of time. Is there any way I can find out more information about Haitian Creole? I'd like to know certain facts like how many of its words come from French, how many people in Louisiana speak it, etc.

This one probably bears mentioning, too, as a general background to Creole languages.

It looks like some Haitian Creole speakers came to Louisiana in the early 1900's (and there are presumably some much more recent Haitian immigrants, as can be found sprinkled throughout the U.S.), but they enriched an already existing Creole culture of distinct origin. "Creole" as a person in colonial times just meant somebody born in the colonial territory as opposed to the metropole. The application to languages "born in the colonies" comes centuries later.

Good to see a language like this here. I used to want to learn it so badly when I wanted to move to Florida (obsessively.) Sadly it is no longer of use to me where I'm deciding to stay. I hope a lot of others get use of it.

That sounds awkward.

lol nah that doesn't sound awkward to me!

Unfortunately not, though. I prefer to learn languages that can help me with employment. Would have been great in southern Florida along with Cuban Spanish, here in my state, I'll likely never see anyone from Haiti in the areas I'll be in.

Does anyone know where the creole course stands as of now? I have been waiting patiently. There has not been any new updates, and the status bar has stayed the same. I hope they are still working on it. The completion date keeps being set back. I dont see a new date and they havnt posted anything. I just hope its not dead.

It doesn't seem to be moving fast, but it seems to be moving: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/24195697 (Note that the percentages here are not the same as the methodologically faulty ones that Duolingo displays by default.)
