If you are going to make a language suggestion, read this first...

Here is a quote from the Duolingo Wiki, Tips for avoiding common faux pas:

There are probably 10,000 posts requesting Japanese alone. The community does not want you to make another one. Search for an an existing language request post with a lot of up votes and add your vote. Ultimately, however, if you want a language to become a course on Duolingo, you'll need to be bilingual and volunteer to create it. http://incubator.duolingo.com/apply

Basically, they mean don't create an already existing discussion, because you will clog up the already limited space in the forum.

Read this awesome guide by Lrtward, which has instructions for how to suggest a course. Trust me, the guide by Lrtward is much better than this post: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/15014194

I like this idea, but I don't think it can pan out.

If the newcomers don't take time to look at the sticky posts, what makes you think that they will look at this thread?

Your heart is in the right place...but it won't work. :P


You do have a really good point. This was made in case they do, and for other people who are going to post their suggestion for a language.


Thanks for posting this =) those threads are so annoying to see constantly!


Much needed. It can get really annoying. Thank you!! :)
