We can now learn High Valyrian?
I just looked at languages that we can learn, and saw that High Valyrian is in beta. I've never even heard of High Valyrian, but how did it get to beta so soon? A week ago, I don't even think that it was started, and now it's already in beta? Klingon was started months (years!) ago, but it is just now 55% finished.
If anyone has tried High Valyrian yet, can you tell me if it's really ready to be in beta? And can anyone give me a definite time that it was started? Because I've never seen it before today.
High Valerian is a constructed language from the Game of Thrones series. It was added to the Duolingo incubator in the winter. One reason that it was developed so quickly is that the inventor of the language led the Duolingo development effort.
Okay, well, it's funny that I hadn't seen it before! But maybe I did once, and I forgot it. (Nice streak, by the way.)
They strated working on it some months ago without showing it on the "courses" page, and now that it's done it's there. There are some languages still in developement that don't appear on that page. Who knows for what reason...
Personally, as a huge Song of Ice and Fire nerd and Game of Thrones fan, I can completely picture the Valyrian characters pronouncing the words as written in the course, and although it's a constructed language from a fantasy world, it sounds lovely and I enjoy seeing what kind of conventions appear in constructed languages (particularly ones constructed in the modern day)
I like being able to learn new languages and I like that it's a different sort of language to most
The sound isn't developed yet . . . but I hope that it will be soon. (It's out of beta already, but I haven't studied it yet since then.)
Why can't I hear how the word I learning is pronaunced? Is that a bug or something? I hope you understand english is not my native
