Learning Latin?

I would like to ask, does Duolingo by any chance have any Latin courses? It is the ancient father of many Western languages and the base for them all while they changed later on. I get the idea that it might sometimes be considered "dead," but would it be possible for Duolingo to add Latin? If not, where can I find a similar website in learning Latin?

Not as of now, but you can see instructions on how to suggest a course at here:

There is unfortunately no Latin course on Duolingo, but...

There are good Latin courses on Memrise:

https://www.memrise.com/course/74845/basic-latin-i/

Also try Mango languages:

www.mangolanguages.com/

I also believe LingQ has a Latin course:

(Edit: carpelanam also has a good Latin course: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/8053459)

and the base for them all

Or roughly half of them (i.e. the Romance languages).

Spend a little money and buy 'Lingua Latina per se Illustrata'. It teaches beginner's Latin entirely in Latin- there's no English at all in the book.

For people who have a good grasp of grammar, it's the absolute best resource for Latin beginners out there.

Luis has already confirmed on Reddit that Latin will eventually be added.

Threads about Latin requests show up weekly here.

Then why don't they just make it as one of the main sticky forums until the request becomes fulfilled? I get the idea that it takes awhile, but couldn't they at least post the basics up first and let it wait until next levels come up gradually?
