What would be your favorite new courses?
if some new language courses came out, which ones would you be most happy about? i would like Finnish, Serbian, and Bulgarian.
All all the languages I would like to learn are on Duolingo but I think Finnish, Serbian and Bulgarian would be good additions :)
I would like to learn Croatian or Bosnian (I know it is 98% similar to Serbian but I would still prefer other two).
I wouldn't like a new course, rather that the old ones get an upgrade. They kind of teach you the very basics, but that's it. Would be nice if Duo could bring you up to an intermediate level, but that's just wishful thinking. Until then, I don't even want new languages.
Duolingo's translation-based format wouldn't work as well for the intermediate level. It's better to concentrate on other (more immersive, less reliant on one's starting language) forms of learning as soon as you can.
Northern Sami is probably the only non-Duo language I am interested in right now, disregarding the ones that are not already in the incubator anyway. However, the likelihood of a Sami language appearing on Duo is quite slim in my eyes.
I would really like an Afrikaans course. It is such a nice sounding language.
Bulgarian for sure! Even though not a lot of people are asking for it, I hope it becomes available soon.
Combining my personal desires with a twist of realism, English for Georgian speakers because it's the course involving Georgian that's almost certainly coming first. I also think English for Bulgarian and English for Bosnian-Croatian-Serbian are clearly necessary additions (that are presumably prerequisites for the courses for English speakers).
And I'm antsy for Italian for Portuguese speakers to at long last escape the clutches of "final verification" in Pittsburgh and get into beta, and to at least see some progress on Swedish for Russian.
