Balkan Slav Languages?
While I know that the Duolingo team is working hard on Chinese, Japanese, and Hindi; I think you should add Serbian, Croatian, or Bulgarian, though particularly Serbian because it is mutually intelligible with Bosnian, Croatian, Macedonian, and to a smaller degree Bulgarian.
What do you think about Balkan Slavic languages being introduced onto the site?
I think we don't need to start another Yugoslav war because "why did you make Serbian and not glorious Croatian, Croatian is best language" -"You Croatian fools need to learn to use the Cyrillic alphabet" -"I'm Bosnian and I'm offended that you called it Serbian even though it's mutually intelligible with Bosnian and Bosnia is better than Serbia" -"NO SERBIA GREATTST COUNTREY" -"Why not call it Serbo-Croat-Bosnian?" -"WHY DOES SERBIA GET TO BE BEFORE GLORIOUS CROATIA" -"DO NOT TAINT THE SERBIAN LANGUAGE BY MIXING IT IN WITH BOSNIAN"
This is pretty much what I envision happening no matter what name you decide to give the course.
In favour. Considering the Balkan relationship to each other it will most likely end up a complete shitshow, which means entertainment to me.
Undoubtedly there is some intelligibility between Macedonian and Serbian, but not to a comparable extent to that of Croatian or Bosnian. Sure, in Yugoslav times Macedonians were fully acquainted with the language originating just to their north, but that was bilingualism.
