Zulu Is Coming To Duolingo!

Everyone’s favorite language app is now teaching Swahili, Duolingo CEO Luis von Ahn announced on stage at the Design Indaba conference. Added to that, Zulu will be the next African language available, he told the cheering crowd in Cape Town.

Swahili launched on Friday (Mar.3) Ahn told Quartz. The launch date for the Zulu platform is not yet certain, but it is already in development he added.

I wasn't aware of this. There will be two African languages! I'm curious to how long until it is in the Incubator, but nevertheless I'm excited for it!

Please we also want IsiXhosa!!! This app is amazing and it could really add so much value to our country if we could all understand one another a little better

I'm hoping for Amharic but this is great news!

So am I! Still, with each new ""major"" African language added, we get a little bit closer to having Amharic!

ተስፋዬን አልተወውም!

Hopefully Somali and Hausa will be considered in the future.

Yes! African languages are very interesting and the more of them the merrier.
