Request a language?

Is there a place to request a language? I would like to be able to learn Latin or Greek.

July 3, 2012


I also would like to see Greek on Duolingo

March 3, 2013

I would love to see Greek on Duolingo. I am Greek and can speak it very well though I haven't written or read Greek in a while and would love a refresher and to learn the language better. :)

February 19, 2014

Greek!!!! The alphabet is a small barrier, taking a week max to learn. After that, letter combinations are easier than most languages!

October 21, 2013

Well, now I am ABSOLUTELY BUSTING with excitement to learn a relatively easy language!!!!!

May 3, 2016

Is Greek itself easy?

May 4, 2016

No, not at all. Sadly nowadays, the vast majority of the Greek population makes lots of vocabulary and grammar mistakes, because the Greek language demands years of organized studying and concetrated effort. Sometimes, during writing an essay in Greek I catch myself thinking:"This would be so much easier to say if my teacher accepted English essays". :)

May 7, 2016

I hope that I can learn easily. I'm only level 9 in French....

July 1, 2016

no it is not, but after a while you will be able to understand the structure of the language and be able to go on fine.

May 22, 2017

It's no different than Russian's alphabet, and they're already working on that one. So....

March 10, 2015

The Greek alphabet is not the same as the Cyrillic.

August 24, 2015

It is not even CLOSE to Russian, because Russian has 28 letters, while the Greek one has 22 completely different characters!!

May 4, 2016

Russian has 33 :)

June 2, 2016

Thanks. :):):):):):):):):):):):)

July 1, 2016

you could try Chinese: you would need to learn 3500-4000 characters to know as many as the average Chinese person :P

June 26, 2016

Did you know that, even if you had a very extensive knowledge of English, you would still only know about 40% of it?

July 1, 2016

Seriously? I wasn't saying that the alphabet for the two languages are exactly the same. I meant that Greek has an alphabet of it's own, separate from English, like Russian. Therefore, if Duolingo is able to do Russian, then they should also be able to do Greek.

August 25, 2016


June 2, 2013

There's definitely a demand for Greek.

October 29, 2013

Oh really.

May 4, 2016

I didn't notice.

July 1, 2016

+1 for Greek

May 8, 2013

Another vote for Greek!

October 30, 2013

October 8, 2013

October 13, 2013


October 23, 2013

Greek please! Ancient Greek, Attic Greek, Modern Greek, something! Let's translate some Plato up in this thing

November 29, 2013

i am aware of Ancient and Modern Greek, but i do not know what Attic Greek is. Could you explain for me?

February 19, 2015

I think that Attic Greek used to be a dialect of Ancient Greek, spoken in the region of Attica, where the capital Athens is situated. :)

February 20, 2015

Attic Greek is the language that most people refer to as Ancient Greek spoken in and around Athens

October 19, 2015

NO OFFENSE, but it seems like people these days care less and less about history, so bravo to you for understanding that reference.

May 3, 2016

I'm looking out for modern Greek as well.

November 4, 2013

Greek ;) Ancient Languages would be preeeetty nice!!!!

January 5, 2014

Actually, I was hoping for modern Greek - It would be good to be able to speak the language when visiting Greece and Cyprus!

January 5, 2014

russian and greek, please

February 19, 2013

Lucky you! They have Russian!

July 1, 2016

I would be absolutely pleased if Modern Greek would be added! The language is beautiful and very fun to learn. So far as the alphabet goes, I am not Greek, but Albanian, and the alphabet took me a very short time to learn. Honestly, it is very easy, one of the easiest alphabets to learn. I have high hopes for this language added to DuoLingo.

January 13, 2014

Greek is a must. After all greek words are almost in every western language and not only!

January 18, 2014

Another vote for Greek, parakalo!!!

November 18, 2013

Studied Ancient Greek at MA level. Loved it. Would love to learn modern Greek; it's so beautiful-sounding (and looking!) Plus, Greece is a magnificent country.

January 19, 2015

February 20, 2014

I would also love to learn Greek and Latin.

April 9, 2014

I'd take ancient or modern Greek!

July 27, 2014

I agree. I would also like you to add Greek. Thank you.

August 25, 2014


February 4, 2014

Another vote for modern Greek

August 28, 2014

I want to learn Greek also. I already know a little and hope to see it on here soon ...

January 7, 2015


January 9, 2015

Ancient and Modern Greek and Latin, please!

February 11, 2015

Latin and Greek !

February 19, 2015

Greek has definitely got my vote. But just to reiterate- modern and ancient Greek are two VERY different languages/dialects.

And don't ever let a modern Greek tell you they're the same- they're not! I study classics at Cambridge and we have a ton of evidence for how ancient Greek sounded very different to modern.

Still it would be nice to have both :)

May 14, 2015

it's just something really weird;Why did they care about all these languages but Greek....u know a lot of words we use today are taken from the Greek language...what a shame!

March 4, 2016

    December 23, 2017

    Unfortunately not... yet.... For now we can just request them to consider these languages in the future.

    July 3, 2012

    Where do we request them to consider them? Thanks.

    July 3, 2012

    Look to the left and you can leave feedback, (little tab in the middle) if enough people ask I presume you may get somewhere... As far as I know that and starting a thread like this are the only ways to communicate about that sort of thing.

    July 4, 2012

    You can also request languages or vote on DuoLingo's Facebook

    July 4, 2012

    Thank you, Bush. I hadn't even noticed that.

    Thank you, dvn, but I'm not on FB.

    July 4, 2012

    Here's my vote for Greek.

    February 10, 2013

    GREEK please!!!

    March 6, 2013

    ANCIENT Greek

    January 5, 2014

    Update: After a long search I've found 2 products only on the market (method + voice). One for ancient greek and one for latin. They are the only ones. I'm going to purchase them, anyway. It would be great if duo lingo enters this market too.

    January 22, 2014

    What are they?

    January 22, 2014

    assimil courses . I see now they have ancient greek and latin for french and italian speakers but I'm not sure whether they have it for english ones. You should check it out on their website.

    January 22, 2014

    Both please

    July 14, 2014


    July 26, 2014

    I live in Cyprus and can read a little greek but have no idea what the words mean! Ellenika paragalo!

    October 10, 2014

    Scottish Gaelic and Greek! :D

    November 25, 2014

    Look how many people want it... and still nothing.

    December 9, 2014

    Greek will never happen will it? To the people complaining 'why greek?' well for me i would love to connect to my heritage and keep traditions and culture alive (being greek/cypriot myself). Why is there no word from anyone in Duolingo on why this isnt a course yet?

    January 28, 2015

    Yeah, it's weird, isn't it? I mean, now it turns out Yiddish is coming out... yet I know for a fact that there would be a massive demand to learn Greek on Duolingo. Plus, there must be many Greek-English bilinguals as we can judge from the Greek --> English course. Implementing the Greek alphabet wouldn't be any more difficult than the Cyrillic, and they're working on Russian, so.... C'mon, Greek!

    February 14, 2015

    Greek!! Would be so nice :)

    February 2, 2015

    Greek would be great!

    February 13, 2015

    Modern Greek would be fantastic

    March 11, 2015

    My vote also for Greek!!!

    March 29, 2015

    Please put Greek!!!! <3 I'll love you guys forever.

    April 1, 2015

    SWAHILI. It's a rapidly growing language and there's a large demand for English-Swahili translation.

    April 29, 2015

    Yes!! I vote Swahili also :)

    August 3, 2015

    Another vote for Modern Greek! I have friends and relatives there with whom I'd like to be able to communicate.

    May 5, 2015

    I totally agree! How can it not me included already?

    June 18, 2015

    Yes please! Not having greek available in Duolingo is a shame! I am Greek and learning Turkish now and I regret not being able to direct my Turkish friends here to start learning Greek. Ancient greek and latin would be very interesting too but I understand there could be several unique issues with dead languages.

    August 6, 2015
    • 1 more for Ancient Greek! and Latin cuneiform and ancient Egyptian would also be amazing!
    October 19, 2015

    I'm delighted that Russian has now been added. Greek next would be hugely appreciated.

    November 10, 2015

    I really want them to add Bengali!

    November 23, 2015

    Mandarin and/or Arabic would be nice.

    February 1, 2016

    Yeeeeeeah, Greek pleaseee

    February 3, 2016

    It seems like 80% of the people who mentioned Latin also mentioned Greek P ('_') P <why?) ------

    May 3, 2016

    it would be really interesting to see arabic, hawaiian, and latin! does anyone know if these languages might be added in the future?

    May 25, 2016

    Please add Latin. The base of all the Romance languages!


    PS: Greek would be great too!

    August 23, 2016

    For those who are anxiously waiting for the release of Greek (for English speaking students) I highly recommend looking at the English course for Greek speaking students.

    August 26, 2016

    yeah! Latin!

    October 27, 2016

    There is a seperate lesson for people who speak english to learn greek , but I warn you that greek is a very rich language , so it is very difficult to learn (ancient greek are even more difficult than modern). Even the greek people do not know all the greek words and sometimes they make mistakes. Greek is a very beautiful language though, and it totally worths to give it a try!

    September 9, 2017

    Another vote for Latin here. I learnt it at school but have forgotten most of it so I need to reclaim my lost knowledge. If we can have fictional languages like Klingonese, we can certainly have classical languages.

    July 8, 2018

    Latin please.!! I need help in Latin.!!!

    January 15, 2019

    I would love to see Latin on Doulingo. I am learning Latin this year in my homeschool community and I am struggling. It would help a lot to see Latin as a new language.!! Thank you for everything!!

    January 15, 2019

    Doulingo helps a lot with my Spanish, so I thought Doulingo can help me with Latin!!(;

    January 15, 2019


    January 19, 2014

    You want to say English from Greek?

    April 15, 2014

    ancient Greek! Yeah! go greek!

    February 15, 2014

    i would love to learn latin and greek

    April 17, 2015

    I really want to learn modern Greek

    April 23, 2015

    I want to learn Czech!

    May 18, 2015

    +1 for Greek!!!

    June 20, 2015

    Greek would be wonderful please!

    June 23, 2015

    Latin, this is a great place to learn, with Duolingo I would love to improve my Latin.

    June 28, 2015

    Yes, Greek please!!!

    July 30, 2015

    You also have my vote for Greek !

    August 12, 2015


    August 14, 2015

    Ditto. Greek please.

    August 16, 2015

    I tutor in both languages. I have taught ancient Greek in class and online since 2011. PM me if you are interested.

    August 18, 2015

    YES! Would love both of these!!

    August 31, 2015

    Yes, Greek!

    September 7, 2015

    Yes, please add Modern Greek! I would love to learn the language before visiting.

    September 8, 2015

    I just looked at the languages they're currently working on, one of which is Klingon.... If we're going to do stuff like that, I'd like to learn Elvish, from LOTR. I'm pretty sure Tolkien created an entire language.

    September 8, 2015

    i would vote for Sindarin

    April 2, 2017

    I'd also like to learn Mandarin. I have some business contacts in China. So, it would be helpful. I know reading and writing would be difficult, but we could still learn to speak it.

    September 10, 2015

    Why is Greek taking so long to release in beta? I really would like to learn it and am discouraged by how long this language has been on the shelf. Can we have some more Greek contributors sign up and get this ball rolling? The latest estimate on release is Oct. 2016!

    September 12, 2015


    September 18, 2015


    September 24, 2015

    Yes Greek please!

    October 14, 2015

    yes mee too

    November 11, 2015

    Greek, Latin, and African languages like Afrikaans, Yoruba, Igbo etc!!!

    November 11, 2015

    I would love to see tagalog and nahuatl!

    November 21, 2015

    Please add Greek for English speakers. Either Ancient Greek or Modern Greek (or both). I am going to major in Classics in College and would love to be able to already have a basis before taking the language classes. Also, I intend to visit Greece someday and want to be able to communicate in Greek.

    December 3, 2015


    December 9, 2015

    Greek, please!!!

    December 10, 2015

    Greek please! Thinking of living in Cyprus in a few years time, so really want to learn Greek.

    December 10, 2015

    YES for Greek!!!

    December 13, 2015

    One more vote for Greek!

    December 17, 2015

    i've already memorized the greek alphabet! I want to learn greek itself

    January 16, 2016

    Ancient Greek, please!

    February 8, 2016

    Ancient Greek, please!

    February 8, 2016

    here's my vote for the greek language

    March 4, 2016

    Why isn't there any japanese???? I'm sure people have been wanting it for a long time. Maybe too much kanji????

    March 18, 2016

    I agree. I would like to learn Asian languages as well. We could, at least, learn to speak and understand them, even if the pictographs prove too difficult. Their new Russian course can be learned WITHOUT using the Cyrillic alphabet. Why not Japanese or Mandarin...?

    March 20, 2016

    Whatever some people have been saying up there: many of us have learnt/learn/would like to learn ancient greek ; I am not satisfied with the present situation where only students that are lucky enough to study in a place where it is taught (although if you look for it, you do find those schools/universities) OR people rich enough to pay a lot for it can learn ; there is extremely few resources for self-learning compared to other languages+it is a hard language so you would need a good course...

    It so happened that quite some years ago (like 10 years), before duolingo even existed, we were thinking of building a software of this kind to help students and ancient greek+enable people to learn on their own... so I have the contacts, all motivated people, that dedicate their professional (and sometimes personal) life to that language... I would be happy to contribute+find other contributors for such a course. Whenever.

    April 30, 2016

    Greek, because Greek is still used, while Latin is a "dead language," not just to contradict some of your guy's opinions.

    May 3, 2016

    Well, they are already working on Greek, so.... Greek. And Arabic.

    May 4, 2016
    • 1 Japanese.

    July 17, 2016

    I would love to learn tagalog (filipino)

    July 24, 2016

    Ancient (Attic) Greek, please!

    September 18, 2016

    I think you'll have to learn the non-spoken languages, i.e., Ancient Greek, Old English, etc., the old-fashioned way. Only the scholars really know those.

    April 2, 2017

    New greek is available but ancient is not. Just go to your profile and click add a new language.

    October 27, 2016

    I like how practically none of the commenters here, although they all vouched for Greek, are learning Greek although the course has been available on Duolingo for quite a while by now...

    March 12, 2017

    I like how a ton of people are asking for ANCIENT Greek which is different than modern Greek so .........

    March 12, 2017

    Oh oops Sorry then

    March 12, 2017

    Hawaiian, Finnish, Lojban, Tibetan....

    April 2, 2017

    I would like to learn Thai

    November 26, 2017

    I would like to either request that the Mongolian language be added or form a group here in the U.S. with the approximately eight thousand Mongolian-US residents; contact me so that we can begin constructing and contributing to a Mongolian course for Duolingo. Please contact me here at Duolingo if you are an expert or native Mongol speaker.

    January 28, 2018

    I would like to see additional fictional languages, particularly Cthuvian
