I recently ran into this comment Luis made in January where he said they'll be working on 4-5 smaller languages this year and thought that was quite funny in retrospect. The year isn't over yet but so far English speakers have received courses for Haitian Creole (#86 by amount of native speakers), Japanese (#9) and Chinese (#1). Even if you include courses for other speakers you're still left with Russian (#8) and Esperanto. Okay, Esperanto is small but personally I expected smaller languages refer to natural languages and ones that are actually small, not just smaller than English and Spanish.
