Czech is almost here!

Yep, you guys heard me right. For all of those who don't know, today, the day of the great solar eclipse, the Czech course will be released! Thanks to the Czech team for doing such a great work!!! Good job, Czech team!

EDIT: Looks like the Czech course is still not released! We just have to be a little patient and wait till it comes out.

Why not wait until it has actually been released?

From the Incubator:

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

[My emphasis]

It's great to be understood. (No sarcasm.) And because I do not see any sign of TTS functionality yet, I am going to assume that I guessed wrong. But it also feels pointless to be projecting when someone else will complete something I have no way of influencing. So I am leaving that date alone.

Sure, I wasn't criticising course contributors - you can only report on what you have control of. And your guestimate seemed quite reasonable.

It's just that I don't see the point of posts like this, when the course could as easily come out today, tommorrow, or in a months time.

PS: Thank you for all your work on this.

Hi! Excuse the digression. Your streak talks about a lot of dedication, but I was wondering, How did you manage such many languages? Do you feel proficient in your level 25 languages?

Best regards!

Going by the link you provided, it's still only an estimate ("Estimated Completion Date").

Right, but given by the people doing the actual work (and being paid for it!)

How strange that we were chatting about this exact topic a few hours before you posted that knowingly smirk

Hey, can you please tell me how you got the Korean course?

August 25, 2017

Are you an A/B tester?

August 26, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WaterPolyglot

No, I'm alpha testing.

Are you going by the estimated release date on the incubator page because they are very often missed, I very much hope you are correct though

August 21, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Patrick.-

April 8 2024?!?!, Is this the real estimated date of release?!?!

August 22, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WaterPolyglot

No, it's just the next solar eclipse (because today's the solar eclipse)

August 22, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Patrick.-

Oh, Really? So, when is the Czech course going to be released?

August 22, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WaterPolyglot

No one knows.

Duolingo should really take over the estimated completion date from Nueby

August 22, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/zekecoma

Those dates are not set in stone. Even on the page it says:

Estimated Completion Date: August 21, 2017
