Please everyone who wants a lojban course on duolingo say it in the comments, anyone who does not know what lojban is you can find out here: https://mw.lojban.org/papri/Lojban it is similar to esparanto and klington, the new languages on duo in that they are both constructed languages(they didn't evolve over time like normal languages) but this one is, in syntax at least, completely unambiguous, and it only has less than 1400 root words, which can be converted easily into adjectives, nouns, and verbs. I see this as a great language to learn (in theory at least) but all of the existing textbooks and curricula online are too hard to follow and understand.
This is where duolingo comes in ;)
If we can get enough people to comment below that they feel that lojban should be included! Cheers!
Ah, Lojban. I myself may not learn it for a while, but I support the creation of such a course.
Considering the trend of people not wanting to talk to their computer with a language that is not something you'd refer to as "mathematical" unless you want to have Math professors vomit on your desk... I think it would probably be something for me to look into lojban. As, from what I've read, it is less problematic than various natural languages--and less problematic than speaking to a computer in BASH (which makes screaming at a computer in Klingon seem tame and nice).
It also would be fun to walk around in public and talk to those voice recognition systems in Lojban.
It should not come as a surprise that I strongly support this idea. If it does then that just proves that we need this :)
1 year old post. still waiting for lojban. i have basically dropped learning russian to learn lojban because i think it would be more fun to learn. then again, i have many many pdf's to read if i want anything form it. DUO, Logban when?
Esperanto - made with the purpose of being easy to learn so as to facilitate communication between the peoples of of foreign lands.
Lojban - made primarily to facilitate logical thinking. Also supposed to be easy to learn (I don't know, haven't tried yet) so it may be usable for a similar purpose to Esperanto as a secondary benefit.
Klingon - Made to sound tough and alien as part of a TV/Movie franchise. Learned primarily by people who are big fans of said franchise.
I mean no disrespect to anyone but maybe Klingon isn't the best comparison. Maybe comparing a language to Klingon isn't the best way to get support for a Duolingo course...
Then again.. Klingon already exists as a course in beta so... I could be wrong.
Yes! It is my favorite language right after Catalan and my own native language (Portuguese)! And I really really like English, Japanese and Norwegian! Lojban deserves much more love!
I definitely 100% support the idea for a Lojban course.
I am interested in learning Lojban and I think that it would be a great course on Duolingo.

I would love a course on Lojban! I am an "advanced beginner" and would be happy to help contribute to the course!
