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.

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

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!)

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.

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

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

    [deactivated user]

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

      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.
