Amazing work, Team English for Tamil! Looking forward to the release of the course!
Good luck with creating the tree! All of you are awesome! :)
I agree! That will most likely begin after English for Tamil speakers is released and stable.
நன்றி! I'm looking forward to the release of this course as well as the reverse course in the future!
Just want to say thank you to the course contributors! Good job on all the recent progress you guys have made!
I probably won't end up taking this course, but once it's released, hopefully a Tamil for English course will start, and I would definitely be interested in that.
@goosefield - I am a native Tamil speaker interested in contributing to this. I have applied via incubator. What is the process to get approved and start contributing?
Thank you for your interest! If we need help with the course in the future, we'll review your application and let you know how you can help.
@goosefield I see the English for Tamil course has made a lot of progress the past few weeks but this week is stuck at 64%. Do you still expect the course to be completed by August 8 or later this year?
We expect to have preliminary translations done by August 8 but will still need to add alternate translations. The interface is also only about 50% translated at this point so the course will likely be released after August 8.
I know Tamil and applied to help this course(Jun 22, 2019) but still haven't been accepted if you can accept I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you!
நன்றி. இந்த சீரிய முயற்சிக்கு என்னுடைய பங்களிப்பையும் அளிக்க விழைகிறேன். I've applied for the contributor program so many times that I've lost count. So, If I do want to do it, how can I do it. Kindly guide me through the process. Thanks in advance.
We currently don't need more contributors, but we will likely need alpha testers in the near future. If you are interested in alpha testing, please let me know and I will keep you updated. நன்றி.
I am interested in alpha testing and would like to contribute to Duolingo too.
Understood. மகிழ்ச்சியே. I wished to contribute in any way possible. So I do wish to be Alpha. Ping me whenever it's ready. நன்றி.
Hi! If you are still looking for Alpha Testers I would love to help out. My parents are from Chennai but I was born in America so I can speak and understand Tamil very well but have 0 knowledge of the script. I don’t think my English skills need mentioning. I would love to help with alpha testing in the course if you still need it.
Since this course teaches English to Tamil speakers, knowledge of the script is required, sorry! However, once Tamil for English speakers starts, your help would be invaluable. Thank you for your interest!
நான் Ready sir ! நான் தமிழ்நாட்டிலேயே பிறந்து வளர்ந்தவன்.If you see my profile in duolingo you will understand.
Please keep in mind that this course will be teaching English to Tamil speakers, not Tamil to English speakers.
Although Malayalam and Tamil share some vocabulary, someone who spoke only Tamil could not understand much Malayalam.
No. Although they share the same origin. Tamil still maintains it's originality whereas Malayalam has a lot more influnces of Sanskrit.
Good Luck! We can only hope that a "Tamil for English speakers" course will follow.
Hi, there, I am learning only french and having crown level 100+ then level(19) and also I can able to speak tamil but I know only to type in English. May I able to assist you in your tamil contribution.
Salut, J'utilise duolingo pour mon apprentissage le français et je parle tamil très bien. Puis je vous aider dans votre contribution linguistique?
I appreciate Your efforts, but also wonder if You aren't feeling overwhelmed? Lot of people express interest to contribute to the course over the years, but i see only two contributors now, yet You said that You don't need any more.
I understand that initial enthusiasm of the people fades away once the actual task required is understood. People who are chosen to contribute remain dormant or choose to leave after realizing the demanding nature of the job. So taking more people into the course does not help the cause. But having very few people to contribute with loads of work may not help either, considering the course has been in development for more than 3 years. Yet, pushing for the release with unfinished/partially finished course would hurt everyone - Learners, Contributors and also the image of Duolingo. How are You handling this?
I would appreciate if You help me know about any restriction on the number of contributors for the course and also about the process of contributing to the Course. Thanks.
