Tuvan is speaking in South Siberia, and talking about 250-300.000 people. It's similar to Turkish. And it is writing with Cyrilic. Do you want to add Tuvan to Duolingo? :)

Note: My English is very bad. Please help me.

That's a pity. Maybe you know a Tuvan speaker who would be interested.

Richard Feynman would approve.

If you don't have any idea why Nobel laureates who changed our understanding of Physics are so fascinated by Tuva, just check out the Tuvan (regional) anthem and its epic levels of coolness:

WOW! I've heard Tuvan throat singers before, but that really is something else. The Russian anthem is no longer the greatest ever written.

Holy crap, just listening to this makes me want to learn Tuvan. I actually might if a course ever gets made.

Экии! Tuvan is quite a fascinating language. You have my support.

I enjoy listening to Tuvan throat singers who can sing chords with their voices. Someday it would be interesting to know what they are singing about. Follow suggested links to request the language as simply posting it here won't get you very far.

Экии!

I've dabbled in Tuvan before on Mango Languages before my library stopped using it (rip), but I'd like to learn more, but unfortunately there isn't that many resources on the internet :(

I support you in wanting to add Tuvan!
