Chinese update? Been away from the forums.......
Hi, As stated in the title, I've been away from the forums without visiting for several months. Since my last visit, I see that Japanese has been added to the incubator. As they have found a way to teach Asian languages written with characters, has there been any information about Mandarin Chinese? Are they going to release a course for Chinese and if so, when? Thanks and stay awesome! :)
Luis (CEO of Duo) has said on a Reddit forum that they expect Mandarin Chinese to be in the Incubator by late 2017. Other languages such as Latin and Icelandic are expected to be in by late 2018.
I can't see Chinese (Mandarin) in the Incubator, so I am assuming it is not been added just yet. Usually if they are planning on releasing a course, they will put it in the Incubator. And if they don't decide to put it in the Incubator, they probably won't announce it either.
Chinese would be a wonderful language to learn, but I think it will be a bit of time before it appears in Duolingo.
