Because I just missed the update:

I was told there would be Czech

One skill to finish, and then we are good to lock. The skill in progress is what I showed as the BigBad in the last treeshot. Still the final skill, but now called What the?! (that being the reaction I imagine it will get from many learners).

I still expect to lock and submit the course in July (of this year). But I am giving up on explaing that the official "completion" date is just the guess at the lock. Instead, I am adjusting the official date to be my guesstimate of the actual beta release. August 21. At least I should get the eclipse right.

My next update should bring the lock alert.


I am very excited to try out the Czech course! Thank you and all of the contributors for all of your hard work.


I'm so excited for Czech. :)


An update on Tamil: We expect to reach around 40-50% by October, hopefully.


Three consecutive weeks of progress? Yiddish has momentum!

I sure hope you're on holiday somewhere! ;-)


Nope. ;)
But 5am UTC isn't that early for my timezone.


Always good to see progress on the Klingon course! =)


You have Hindi on a little over 6% and mark it as not self-reported, but the automatically-generated value appears to be 41%.


Our automatically generated numbers aren't a naive copy-paste of the highly inacurate Duolingo's automatic numbers.

See the first of our WIU (see the index at bottom) explaining how are generated our numbers in order to avoid false/wrong/misinformative numbers (like the current automatically generated number) and false variations.
