Haitian Creole course stuck in the incubator?

Any input on this? It looks like the last update was several weeks ago. I am incredibly eager to get this course since it is my primary target language right now. Spanish is going well, but I need to get my Kreyol to fluent by the end of this year, and I think Duolingo can help IF they get it off the ground . . .

Trust me, languages take an extraordinary amount of time to make it all the way through the incubator. Klingon has been in there for years, but is still making some progress. It all depends on who's working on Creole at the moment, but it will eventually be finished. I recommend focusing on Spanish alone until it's ready, my little brother dropped it and started Norwegian, and his Spanish isn't too great since he picked up another course. Stay strong! It'll make it's way out in good time.


Some datas:

In average, the 18(*) volunteers-created courses that were the first course to teach a given language have taken 383 days (approx. 1 year and half a month) to reach Beta phase.

If we include (in the average) the course currently in Phase 1 (and that are the first course to teach a given language, of course) --- except Haitian Creole --- then this average rises up to 447 days (approx 1 year 2month and 3 weeks).

(*) Namely, "Catalan from Spanish" + all courses for English speakers except DE, ES, FR, IT, JP and PT (those 6 were created by staff).

I need to get my Kreyol to fluent by the end of this year

Given the above datas, I would not expect the Haitian course (which entered the incubator on Jan. 27th, 2017) to be released before the end of the year.
Hence, if you need to be fluent before the end of the year, you may prefer to find another ressource to work on Haitian Creole (until Duo's course is released).
But I cross fingers to be expecting wrongly. ;)
