Has anyone applied to a Kurmanji dialect of the Kurdish language for the incubator? I see it as a possibility for both English and Turkish speakers. What do people here think of the Kurdish language? (Kurmanji, Sorani, etc)?

This is probably one of the most fascinating and underestimated languages because it has a huge presence but because it isn't a nation-state it doesn't have much influence.

Anyone else looking forward to it? Would it have enough people interested in clubs and so forth? I think so.

I would love any form of Kurdish. It's a very interesting language.

God bless the Kurdish people and may they get their independence.

That said, current events would make a Kurdish course very timely.
