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!

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!)
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.
