    I'm really really hyped for Czech. That's the language I've been studying for almost 3 years now and the language I've waited for the most to come out from the incubator.

    Persian would also be a nice addition to Duolingo's collection. The Persians have some beautiful poetry and music to listen to.

    Edit: Thank you to whoever erased the comments made by that nasty user. Duolingo should never be used to spread hate.

    Woah, I was just thinking about making a post like this today! I'd like to see a lot of the languages available to learn English from e.g. English for Bengali Speakers, to also be available for English Speakers as well as other languages.

    Specifically, I'd love to see more Northern and Eastern European languages, like Icelandic, Finnish, Scots, Estonian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Serbo-Croatian, Albanian, Bulgarian, Belarusian, as well as Luxembourgish too!

    Also, I'd love to see more languages from these two lists:

    1. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_languages_by_number_of_native_speakers
    2. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_languages_by_total_number_of_speakers

    In particular, Persian, Urdu (although it's basically the same as Hindi, but with an arabic script I guess?), Hausa, Javanese, Tagalog, Khmer, Thai, Lao, Xhosa, Burmese, as well as the languages spoken in and around India, and I'd love to one day see languages like Western Greenlandic and Inuktituk Have a watch of this if you're interested! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xW4hI_METac

    What languages would you be interested in seeing? I love Duolingo! Just wish there would be more communication about their plans! :)

    czech which is in the incubator! it'd be nice if duolingo added some lesser known/dying languages like frisian or navajo or hawaiian or basque to help keep the languages alive. also mandarin and arabic, for the sake of having the six official UN languages on here.

    Oh, and also British English, so that I can use it in reverse to get better at translating my answers to the "English" required in all the other courses on Duo, since it is annoying being marked wrong on my English spellings/vocabulary if I'm doing timed practice... :P

    Haha! Beware, though, the courses aren't necessarily in U.S. English. They're in what non-native speakers who probably learned British English think is American English :P

    I'll share one of the undoubtedly less-known differences I've discovered in my time haunting forum discussions: In U.S. English we frequently say something like "she has dark colored hair"; I've been informed that in the U.K. that would be taken to mean "hair dyed a dark colo[u]r." In the U.S. it doesn't imply dying; it's just a way of stating hair color. To imply dying while changing as few words as possible, one would say "hair colored dark" ("she has her hair colored dark").

    Interesting. I would normally just say "she has dark hair" or possibly "her hair is a dark colour". You're right. I would take "she has dark coloured hair" to mean hair dyed a dark colour. I think this is probably due to its contrast with the usual "she has dark hair", because it would feel like there's a reason why the word "coloured" was added. ^^

    By the way, I notice you wrote "dying" twice. Is this another US spelling difference? It would seem very similar to the spelling difference of UK "storey" vs US "story". Therefore I'm not completely certain about whether those were typos or not.

    My biggest two for English speakers would be Latin and Georgian.

    And I think Duolingo really needs to get around to adding English for Persian, Bosnian-Croatian-Serbian, Bulgarian (and perhaps Macedonian separately), Georgian, and Albanian, in short the very limited part of the non-English speaking world where English isn't the most-learned language on Duolingo due to lack of an appropriate course (combined with relatively low English fluency compared to a Sweden, for example).

    Why? It's an awesome language, one of the first invented languages in the world, created by Johann Schleyer in 1879. It was a very famous language, with some thousand of speakers, but Esperanto took the majority of Volapük speakers, as it was easier and more simple.

    It's an amazing language. Learnt it many decades ago, still have my books, but can't muster the strength to revive it on my own. Which is where Duo would come in handy.

    But there is so much to read in Latin! (Not in "Classical" Latin, but over the last 2000 years.) However, I'm w/ you: Greek before Latin.

    When you learned it, which books did you use? I learned Koiné Greek years ago but never managed the upgrade to Classical or Homeric, and I became tired of reading about things Biblical and so let Greek lapse. Maybe we should study together by correspondence. That might help us get ourselves in gear :)

    Cheers for the offer, not sure how well I'd function in that kind of setting. Started w/ Koiné, and then moved on to Platon, scraped along Homer.

    I personally want Georgian, Serbo-Croatian, and Finnish. They seem like such interesting languages. I just started learning Georgian yesterday and I hear there isn't a lot of resources, so if Duolingo made a course, then it would open up a whole new world. Although I don't expect any of these to come anytime soon.

    Yeah, I think they'd be a great addition to the site. Georgian script is beautiful: ქართული. I'd love to see Duolingo create a course for it, but I don't think many people would want that course. Then there is Serbo-Croatian, which I would love to see because the countries it is spoken in are so interesting and Croatia is a popular tourist destination. Finally, so many people want Finnish and it is interesting. I recently found a song in Finnish that I like, but I don't understand it, I've wanted to learn it for a while, so I hope they add it soon.

    Maybe German dialects.

    Also something like Chinese, Finnish, but I might only go through with Chinese.

    Bonjour! I am largely awaiting Japanese, Sweedish, Greek and Russian for French speakers, and Czech for both English and French speakers. Not trying to be rude or anything, but I'm pretty sure we have enough courses for English speakers.. i'd like to see more for other languages.
