RIP English from Telugu.

[deactivated user]

    I want to. there are no course contributors for a long time.


    ...How can course progress go backwards?


    Glad to see Indonesian from English, Russian from Spanish, and Esperanto from Portuguese continuing to make steady progress!


    Finally! Kreyòl Ayisyen (Haitian Creole) has made some progress!!! Mèsi!


    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.


    Duo's new years eve's resolutions/dreams caught back by reality?


    I really hope that they can return to that promise. An Otomí course may be a forlorn hope, but I can still dream


    Merci Jrikhal !


    Wow, Indonesian from English actually made progress.

    No offense Incubator workers, I'm just impatient.


    I might not understand this chart that well, but why is Chinese so little done? EDIT: I mean, compared to a discussion I saw earlier that said it was 56% :)
