Lithuanian YES OR NO ???

I know Lithuanian and have applied for contributor more than once. And I haven't received a response. I've seen all the discussion about people wanting to learn Lithuanian. So lets hear about it!!!

Lithuanian - YES. It is always at the top of the list of languages I am most eager to see added to Duo.

    The one at the top of my list is easily Klingon. DEFINATELY.

    I know that Duolingo has limited resources for the incubator, and they may want a few more solid contributors to apply, so likely they are waiting until it makes more sense to add Lithuanian. Despite it being a very interesting language that a lot of linguists/polyglots would be interested to learn, it's generally going to have low demand, as well. I'd love to take a crack at the most conservative Indo-European language myself, never mind the cool history of Lithuania, but not many English-speakers have ties to Lithuania today. But you never know what will be added next.

    Yes! Yes! YES!!! It's one of the languages that I most want to see here on Duolingo. I'm glad to hear you've applied and I suspect that it's just a matter of others joining the team.

    As a company, Duolingo is focusing on more popular/ more in demand languages, so this is one that they would hand over to volunteers. (As opposed to Japanese, which had an internal team assigned to it.)

    I have my fingers crossed that other people will follow your example and sign up to develop the course.

    Lithuanian would be nice. Unfortunately I don't know a single word so I can't contribute. :(

    For those who want to learn Lithuanian I recommend bliubliu.com as the Lithuanian course probably won't appear here so far. But maybe someday.. :D

    By the way my father is half Lithuanian and he spoke Lithuanian in his childhood but has forgotten most of it. Once he sang a song to me in Lithuanian and I liked it. I'm now learning Lithuanian on my own at bliubliu.com :D

    I tried bliubliu and you're not going to learn anything from that or if you do you'll be sitting at your device memorizing lines of text there are easier ways
