Will Arabic lead to languages like Urdu, Farsi etc?
Given that Arabic will soon be added, will this mean that modified script languages such as Urdu and Farsi could be introduced? This paves the way for many new languages on Duolingo and I've seen so many passionate people + threads and they'd be willing to contribute!
Well I know English, German, Russian and Arabic well (they are my native languages) but in my opinion Arabic is really different than Farsi and Urdu, the letters are pretty much the same but the words are totally different. FYI I live in Lebanon - and visit Russia every year (grandparents there)
I would assume so. We saw that a huge focus was languages featured in East Asia (i.e. Japanese, Korean and now Mandarin), so I would assume that other Middle-Eastern and/or Asian languages will be going into development in due time as they seem to be strategically selecting languages that do not use the Latin alphabet to develop.
