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!!!
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.
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
