Ran out of new lessons in Irish. Will there be more?
Hi Duolingo and other users,
I’ve only been practising Irish for less than a year and this morning I finished the last lesson. A cheering golden owl appeared on my screen and the only option for me now is to retake the older lessons.
Will it be possible to expand the content offered for the Irish language? Maybe even make it a paid feature? I for sure would be interested in it!
The general answer is that there will not be more, except if they decide to update or expand the tree.
You can still strengthen your skills and general strengthens - there might be content you have not seen yet.
After Duolingo becomes trivial (you get everything correct all the time), you should move on to other resources for learning the language.
The Irish course creators decided long ago to expand the course’s content (“Tree 2.0” is the nickname for the expanded tree), but the most recent update on the expansion’s status was (at this writing) eight months ago.
Whenever the expanded content appears, it will not be a paid-only feature.
I expect to be in the same situation in a few months myself, and certainly if the envisioned "Tree 2.0” comes to pass it will be welcome. However, as noted, there are many available further resources and many different directions to move on into, whether your interest is gaining conversational fluency, pursuing literary studies, or researching Irish trad music.
I think the current Duolingo lessons provide a very solid, respectable core of learning for whatever direction one might want to go in next, and am very glad to have discovered this resource.
