Nothing again wow.


Finally! Yiddish made some progress!


Looks like we might be getting a triple launch in the very near future. I saw on Twitter that the offici Duo account said Korean was coming on the 7th, so that's the date I'm circling on my calendar.

Nice to see steady progress with the Indonesian course as well!


I don't think Klingon will make it out by the seventh, as Mizinamo said mid-September, but a double release would be nice. :)


I'm very curious to see what will come into the incubator once those three locked trees are released! (At least I hope the incubator will soon be refilled!)


Oh, forgot about Indonesian. Seems like they made quite a bit of progress this week. And the idea of having a potential triple-release seems amazing!


FYI: Czech for English speakers course has just been released!


FYI: Korean for English speakers course has just been released(°)!

Of course, only on the platforms were it was announced it'll be released: as Duo planned and recently announced, it's not released on the website version.
And, no need to ask when it'll be: no one can know (not even the contributors). Except maybe staff (but I doubt it) but if they do then they anyway rarely communicate on ETAs, so unlikely they'll do for that.

(°) At least on Android, I don't know yet if on iOS too.


You're the bearer of good news this week! :-)


And a, official news about "Chinese from English", see here](https://www.duolingo.com/comment/24350634).


And about Arabic, in that same article!!

(At this rate of news, you'll be announcing Finnish by the end of the week... :-p)


Well but they say

After launching Korean and Chinese, the company will turn its focus to Hindi and Arabic (not to mention Klingon)

=> Nothing new: no estimated date.
=> Hindi and Klingon are worked on for months already


Why wasn't Czech released? Woof... tries to unravel the uncertainties.


Guessing cuz it was the weekend, like garpike said. Probably not coming Monday either because of Labor Day. My bet's on Tuesday.


Let's not forget Korean for English speakers....


Whoa, take a look at the pace of Russian for Turkish speakers.


I can see a little dot of improvement on English for Tagalog, at least better than nothing.
