So, I'm guessing you all know that Chinese has been started and it is in the incubator. It doesn't seem to offifially have mods yet, but they're getting there. It is also 0% done :D so it probably won't come for awhile. It seems to be in the absolute beginning. Anyway, I just found the Chinese course page. Wanna check it out?

Woah, the release date is early. Let's hope it stays like that!

The contributors are Z.Shan, Rythmialex, ontalor, Ailenus.M, Mhagiwara, Sasha-o, and Lynn_mo. I just really want to thank these people for dedicating their time and putting in hard work and effort into this course, and I hope they know that there are more than twenty thousand people who are eagerly awaiting this course and who appreciate your hard work! And I hope that at least one of them are reading this :)

Can't wait for release!

Do you think that the date will change? I really hope it doesn't, because I've seen it happen many times. However, I have also seen cases where the language is released the date given, and I really hope it will stay like this!

I just ate so much dinner that despite my insanely huge pizza obsession I am actually not hungry now. But I removed it.

Yeah, mine too! The only one I ever made that was ACTUALLY ON TOPIC was the riddle discussion, before some forum moderator deleted it. Oh, and by the way, I applied to be a forum moderator!

I have to agree, but I wish I didn't. To be honest, I can't remember a single time when a course was released on time D':

I just really love learning languages, and I'm really interested in Chinese. I don't have any Chinese relatives, or any Chinese blood, and I only know a couple characters. I'm really interested in learning the language though, at least enough to communicate a little in Chinese.

Right now my Duolingo is set to English for Spanish speakers.

When I go to https://www.duolingo.com/course/zh-CN/en/aprende-chino-en-l%C3%ADnea parts like "Fecha estimada de lanzamiento: 15/12/17" and "Curso de chino desde inglés" are in Spanish :) but the "Acerca de curso" section says "No language is more spoken in the world than Chinese..." in English :/ instead of being translated into Spanish the way the descriptions on other course pages are.
