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]


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

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.


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

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.

I want to cash my Czech!!!

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!

We'll be Czeching the release date every day!

Oh my God you deserve a lingot for that xD


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

HelpfulDuo just announced the launch date on September 1, 2017. Yay!


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

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


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

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


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/nyanyan52

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


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

Are you an A/B tester?


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

No, I'm alpha testing.


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

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


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

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


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

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


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

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


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

Only if you live in Carbondale, IL.


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

Duolingo should really take over the estimated completion date from Nueby


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

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

Estimated Completion Date: August 21, 2017


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

Czech course!!! Finally! Thank you firepolyglot!


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

I hope it doesn't take more time than the estimated.
