Czech for English speakers hasn't been released yet but the skill tree is locked. I'm excited! I wonder how much time before it is in beta.

I've heard that Serbian, Bosnian, Croatian and a couple of other Slavic tongues are actually different standards for the same general language (Serbo-Croatian). Do you plan to learn all of those standards?

Regardless, that's a pretty epic goal. Good luck on it!

Personally, I regard them as separate languages because the speakers say so. They are technically one language spoken by different ethnic groups.

Wow. That is a fine looking tree. I'm curious to see how this one feels to me. I love Polish, but find it very difficult (I shall prevail). I expected Russian to be even worse because of the added complication of the different alphabet, but I actually find it much easier. I'm a bit intimidated, since Czech is closer to Polish...

Thanks! Because I did the image primarily to ask for checkpoint adjustment, it is a fairly low-res edited bitmap. And the locked tree won't ungold anymore.

Whoever from the Incubator feels like sharing an easier to read shot of the gold tree, they have my blessing and gratitude.

I have been strangely lazy. (Letting a 1200 day streak die has nothing on locking a tree for attitude adjustment.)

I'll take it as a direct (discreet) request (a "appel du pied" as we'd say in French) that I'd do it. ;)
Hence, here it is:

is it readable enough (at least once opened in a new tab then, there, zoomed in)?

It now looks as if Korean will be mobile-only and probably not until September. This makes Czech the probable next "for English" release on the web.

Mobile users can access even web-only courses through their browsers. For what it's worth, the Czech course was mostly built on Galaxy S3/S7 phones accessing the Incubator via Chrome.
