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.

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

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.
