Help me to create Manchurian language course here Geren minde manju gisun i kicen be aisilame araki
I would like to contribute a course for English speakers to learn Manchurian, I applied so many times here but got no reply at all, nowadays there are less than 100 people still use this language, but Manchurian language is extremely useful for investigating the history of Manchuria like Daicing gurun (well known as Qing Dynasty). If there are someone who is interested in Manchurian language or history here, please help me to apply to contribute the course until they accept. Thanks.

Thanks for your willingness to work on such a project!
You don't have to wait for Duolingo, though. You can make a Memrise course that has full sentences. Here's a model, incidentally born of a similar motivation: providing learning content in a language Duolingo hadn't gotten around to adding yet. You can also translate sentences on tatoeba.org More generally, you can record pronunciations of words on Forvo and add entries to Wiktionary. I would have to think that being able to include such details in an application for Duolingo would strengthen it, showing you're dedicated to the work, as one of their concerns is getting contributors who have the commitment to stick with the project (so they don't end up with another Telegu on their hands, for example).
Here's an inscription from the Forbidden City in Beijing:
The vertical symbols to the right are in Manchurian. Hard to believe that the language of those who managed to conquer the whole of China is almost going extinct these days. Making it available for the world to learn could be a way to help better preserve the history of China.
But... I would like the course in the original, vertical Mongolian script! Technical difficulties be damned!
