Coming soon on duolingo...

你好 ! It's woof! Remember Katred2's post about ''Duo has a surprise for us? If not, https://www.duolingo.com/comment/24889882 . If yes, proceed to next line!

I just read on Duolingo's twitter that the Chinese for English course will be coming very soon! Sooner than expected! Probably even Sooner than December!

Don't believe me? https://twitter.com/duolingo/status/923575890386259969

Oh my gosh, I am so happy right now!

WOOO!

It's been a big year for Asian languages on Duolingo! Japanese, Korean and soon Chinese! Much appreciation to the Duolingo team for getting these on the street.

مەن ھەم (Me too)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Woof.

Yeah, it's LONG overdue.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/isnottogive

YAY!!! (Perhaps in the meanwhile I shall have finished one or two courses more and I shall feel less guilty of adding a new one XD)

But I AM MOST PUMPED UP


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Woof.

Most duolinguists: Hey, I finished my sixth tree in two months!

Me: Hey, I'm halfway through my first tree within 4000 years!

XD


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Maughanster_

Same. I haven't finished a Duolingo tree yet, although I am close.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/isnottogive

In my defence I shall say that the trees I am about to finish (German and Danish) are ones I did the shortcut exam because I’ve taken classes aside from duolingo. (Same for English, French and Italian). The rest are going to take waaaaaaaaay longer tbh. XD


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Woof.

Clarimari, it's great that your so good at learning languages! You didn't need to say anything in your defense. What I wrote was a joke at myself, :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/psionpete

I cannot see any mention of “before December”. In fact the announcement on Duolingo gives 15 th December.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Woof.

50 days is soon?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mathso2

I think psionpete is referencing the fact that Chinese has been in the Incubator for over a month with the completion date set at 15th of December, and that for people who keep an eye on the Incubator, this isn't a new surprise (though to me, at least, it is still amazing that it's been confirmed!)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BeCreative__

It could take years for other courses people are asking for to be developed, like Afrikaans and Arabic. I would like to see those ones.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/garpike

I think it is likely to be before the advertised December date, going by how long the alpha tests for Japanese and Korean lasted.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PootScoot14

Chinese is doing such a great job, they are moving so fast!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DanielVanD18

I am so excited! I have almost finished about 4languages so soon I can get onto another one.yayyayyayyay!!!!!

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DreamOfFlying

    That's awesome! I'm happy for people that are going to learn it. Oh wait, that's me ;D


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DreamOfFlying

    Oh wait, here is the right picture ;)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DreamOfFlying

    What? you don't get it? It's a brand new pizza box almost ready to be filled for celebration :D


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Wildman6647

    Why are languages like Chinese a bigger deal than languages like Czech?


    [deactivated user]

      ...because it is the language with the most native speakers.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Woof.

      More people want them and have been requesting them forever.

      Though Czech is pretty awesome.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/aftershocked

      personal interest? more people are curious or interested in learning chinese (often due to music/pop culture/etc.) than czech. possibly also because it took SO long for duo to start really adding non-western languages (and for a while after that there was still only, like, vietnamese) and the excitement hasn't quite worn off yet.

      as someone who's studied asian languages and czech both on and off duo, i sympathize more with those stoked for chinese. not a fan of czech.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/disneygirl55

      yeah i like i when new languages come out!!!!
