How to ad a new language to the system?

Hi, I am a Coptic Language enthusiast. Coptic Language is the language spoken in Egypt at the time of Christ and up until the middle ages it was a live language. it is now a "religious language" used in the Coptic Churches. It is a mix between the ancient Egyptian language (the hieroglyphics) and the Ancient Greek language. The language is mapped by Unicode and it taught academically, so its grammar..etc is well established. I wanted to make a website/app to teach people Coptic, and that's how I came across this great Site, duolingo.

So I am asking if there is a way to "apply" to get the language added to the system.

I checked the "incubator", but could not find a way to add the Coptic Language.

I am willing to contribute time and effort, to this project as I have a series of Coptic Websites and have volunteer team members that can do a lot.

References: The Coptic Language uicode map : https://unicode.org/charts/PDF/U2C80.pdf

the unicode block: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coptic_(Unicode_block)

Thanks in Advance.

I'd love to see the Coptic language on Duolingo as well. Trying to learn it as well, it's my language after all and I should be talking in Coptic :)
