  5. Arrernte Language Course


Arrernte Language Course

I was thinking if it was possible if Duolingo could add a Arrernte Language Course since it is the most spoken native Australian-Aboriginal language. Arrernte has around 3,100 to 5,500 speakers depending on what source you consult.I know it is quite unlikely, but we could give it a try.

I was just today reading about Australia aboriginal languages, and noticed that Arrernte — the language of the Alice Springs area — seems to be the one with the largest number of speakers (depending, perhaps, if Wati is counted as one language or several).

This said, I think that an Arrente course would be a wonderful addition to Duolingo.


Thanks for your comment in https://www.duolingo.com/comment/26514112; I've updated the GUIDE to include this request.

    If Arrernte was added to Duolingo I would definitely learn it :)


    Along with everything else?


    Finding sufficient fluent volunteer speakers to create a course might be a problem.


    I would be willing to give it a try if it was added. I'm Australian, I want to honor the original people of my home country.
