Which courses have you been waiting for or longing for on Duolingo?

Hi, I was just curious about this topic for a while now.

I've been longing for a Cebuano/Bisaya and Tagalog course for English speakers so I can understand some of my relatives.

I've also been waiting for a Chinese Mandarin course because I've been interested in the language.

So what languages have you been waiting for?

Finnish, seriously! (I visit Finnish Lapland fairly regularly) :-)

Arabic, Mandarin, Hindi (to complete the most spoken list) :-)

Hey, I know this is irrelevant to this discussion, but I was just interested in how you manage to learn so many languages. Obviously, it must take a lot of time; however, I was just wondering, do you ever forget some languages and how many languages would you consider yourself fluent in? This is purely out of curiosity and aspiration. Thanks.

I wish we still had streams to chat on... Anyhow:

Of course I haven't learnt them all, only completed the trees (and all of their combinations and ladders :-p). Of course I also forget them, I only do a couple of trees at a time and duo keeps bringing out new ones. But in the rare periods where I can go back to the ones I'm particularly interested in (Irish or Turkish, for example), I find that they aren't all completely lost and really enjoy refreshing them.

As for fluency: I'm only fluent in my mother tongues (English and Spanish), and to a certain extent in German (after 20 years of living in Germany, working for a German company). The other languages would occupy the complete spectrum from "I honestly believe I could become fairly fluent quite easily in them with a bit of immersion" (romance languages, Scandinavian languages, Dutch) to "bejaysus this one would take ages" (Vietnamese, Hebrew) :-)

Thanks a lot. I might start learning some more when I have completed these trees. I was just afraid I might just forget them all

I'd recommend learning as many as you can rather than just the popular ones. Have a go at some less popular ones like Turkish or Russian. Polish is meant to be good to and Czech is coming soon too so that's definitely an interesting one! Also I can;t recommend learning Esperanto enough! Have a read about why here: https://www.fluentin3months.com/2-weeks-of-esperanto/

What about Urdu?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/duonks

Or even Hindustani? :-)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Pfirsch_

(Off topic) Lapland! I don't visit regularly however I've been there twice, and it's beautiful. Lucky you [:


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Not regularly enough :-)

I know... It was Swedish Lapland last February, but will be Finland again this December :-D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Great! :-) I assume you'll be flying "the wrong route" as usual, though?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/duonks

Unfortunately yes, direct :-/


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/bookrabbit

Arabic, and Finnish of course.

And Russian from Turkish, and Swedish from Russian which sadly seem to have stalled in the incubator.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HappyEvilSlosh

Māori. Not even on the cards yet though AFAIK.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NeonSam

I'd love Icelandic


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/OldPalHappy

Well, in English, Duolingo seems to have tons of options. I understand they don't have all the languages that they could, but they have a wide selection, and all most people will want.

But, there are courses in other languages that they don't have many in. As an example, there are only 3 courses in German. So I would like Duolingo to continue to open up the selection for all the languages they offer, and I know that'll take time.

Mandarin Chinese sounds awesome, and I would like to see that one as well!

^.^


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HarryArmst3

Mandarin - the most spoken language ought to be on Duolingo, right?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/s128baetz

It isn't most widely spoken, rather, most spoken :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Boujleba

Most ideally: I want Amharic and I want Moroccan, Tunisian, Sudanese, Yemeni, and Syrian Arabic.

More realistically: I want MSA Arabic.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/OldPalHappy

Arabic is a good one!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/IsakNygren1

Latin, Arabic, Finnish, Icelandic, Gothic, Korean, Indonesian are languages I want to see here. I know that Korean will be released in August. I looked forward to Hebrew, Greek and Japanese. It's good that they are here now.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/fischerfs

Czech. My great grandfather lived in Czechoslovakia so I thought learning Czech would be a great way to restore all that. As well as that I've also been eager to check out Korean and see what it's like.

A course that isn't in the incubator that I'd like to see is Finnish. I've heard it's hard but I've been learning Hungarian which isn't too bad, and it looks like a cool language so I'd love to see it on DL! It'd be cool to see some English creole languages though like Belizean Creole or Tok Pisin, they interest me a lot.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sens44

Finnish, Icelandic, Bulgarian, Scottish Gaelic


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Laura687173

I would like to see more Slavic languages like Serbian, Pannonian Rusyn and Belarusian... Just all of them!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Alternia

I'm looking forward to Finnish, Slovenne, and Maori.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TimmohB

The Czech course.. and the future Zulu course.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SteffiBookworm-

Finnish ;-) - please do not take this serious, I am learning Turkish, that's enough at the moment...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Woof.

Latin. I already take at school, but I'd like to improve my Latin. It's easy, so I'm actually surprised Duolingo doesn't have it. Even if it is a dead language, since I'm learning it it makes Spanish easier since it's a Romance language.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/OliverBens1

My top ones would be (not in this specific order):

  1. Estonian
  2. Latvian
  3. Lithuanian
  4. Bugarian
  5. Armenian
  6. Azerbaijani
  7. Georgian

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/w1ndh0ek

Croatian, Serbian or Bulgarian.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Wildman6647

Oh, and Catalan for ernglush spreakers


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lrtward

Czech and Korean. Lucky me, both are very close to being released :) :)

I'm not sure I will be able to juggle four languages though. My Spanish suffers greatly due to me learning French, and my progress in French is painfully slow. We shall see!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Espiraden

Korean and Thai, mostly.
I'd love to see Mandarin & Arabic too.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/belstar128

Chinese Arabic some of the languages from india an Persian.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Osnakezz

Vellem ut lingua latina hic esset!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/piguy3

Latin, Georgian, Levantine Arabic (MSA will obviously be first, but we can dream, right?)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Wildman6647

I have been longing for an indigenous language course


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lciganko

Slovak and Rusyn
