Congratulations Team Greek! Congratulations to the whole DL Team, volunteers, and community! This is most definitely the best week ever on Duolingo!

April 25, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Chris.koch

and it is going to continue next week as well, with two new spanish courses and english for arabs :)

April 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/tariqnisarahmed

I am very happy for and impressed by the Spanish Team. I am curious whether DL is already the biggest on-line provider of courses for Spanish-natives, much less of free on-line courses. #SpanishIsTheNewEnglish

But quite seriously, I would love to see Spanish to Arabic and French to Arabic courses. And with the pace set by Team Spanish, I think I may see at least one of those.

So where are you from?? (sorry for talking to much :/ haha)
