I just noticed that Esperanto from Portuguese has graduated into Beta. I wonder which language will be next.

I am using this script for AutoHotkey, as Tajpi wasn't allowing me to type Portuguese characters in my Spanish International layout:

#Hotstring ? C *

::cx::ĉ
::Cx::Ĉ
::gx::ĝ
::Gx::Ĝ
::hx::ĥ
::Hx::Ĥ
::jx::ĵ
::Jx::Ĵ
::sx::ŝ
::Sx::Ŝ
::ux::ŭ
::Ux::Ŭ

I've completed the first skill (edit: now four skills, all is fine), and at the moment I could type all the special characters for Esperanto and Portuguese.

I am very happy with that. I hope someday Portuguese has its own exclusive courses, like Spanish does. It could Tupi and Mirandese, as Spanish speakers have Guarani and Catalan.

Guarani and Catalan are spoken actively in some ares for what I know, whereas Tupi is only spoken in indigenous communities.

I know, but it'd be good to learn them here, it'd help to recuperate those endangered languages (Tupi for Brazil and Mirandese for Portuguese). Nheengatu (also called "Modern Tupi") is even co-official along with Portuguese in São Gabriel da Cachoeira (Amazonas), and Mirandese is considered the second official language of Portugal, spoken in "Terras de Miranda", it is protected and teached in that area. I've even found a demo TTS for Mirandese language (text-to-speech) that could ve used for the course: http://fala.azurewebsites.net/mirandese-text-to-speech.html

Hopefully French will be next, but German would also be a good choice.

I've been wanting to see French for a while. It would be easier to maintain both languages if I could work both at the same time.

Sidney, não mudará em nada o seu nível. Você vai clicar na bandeira do esperanto em sua foto e colocar "adicione um novo curso".

You will have the level of the Esperanto tree where you are more advanced. For example, currently I have 3 Esperanto trees going on: Esperanto for English (level 10), Esperanto for Spanish (level 15) and Esperanto for Portuguese (level 3). Therefore, my Esperanto level in forums is level 15.

I would like to see this too. What I would really like is to have any other major language to Esperanto, and Esperanto to any other major language, so I could use Esperanto as a tool/intermediary. I am still learning Esperanto and hope once I reach a sufficient level of fluency, I could contribute to such a project.

Duolingo is a bit picky when it comes to accepting new course ideas and contributors. One of the things that annoy me the most is the lack of European Portuguese, High German (whether Swiss or Austrian), Norwegian Nynorsk and Cantonese because they assume that the São Paulo, Berlin Middle German, Oslo Bokmal and Beijing Mandarin variants are the 'official' and most useful for the languages in question.

I find that the lack of certain marginal variants is understandable for English and Spanish, but in those cases there is a very high divergence when it comes to grammar and pronunciation. (Brazilian and Peninsular Portuguese being among the closest ones among those examples, but some Brazilians still need subtitles when watching Portuguese movies or interviews.)

To be completely honest, as a Brazilian I'd especially love to go through a European Portuguese course to make my own grammar more literary-like, when I need to flex it during an internet argument with some arrogant person, or to impress Portuguese friends and love interests in case I ever manage to go to University there. :P

It is much easier to commit to a course when there is another course with a closely-related language to me. That was key about falling in love with Norwegian Bokmal, Swedish and Danish, in my experience. So I guess the most important for Esperanto would be Italian or French.
