How about Hebrew?

A question for the duolingo staff: Do you plan on ever releasing Hebrew? I know that a lot of time and work goes into each language released, but I would love to know if you guys are planning on it.

Glad to see that someone feels the same way! Although apparently someone disagrees with us, because this got down voted.

It's not that people disagree with this, it's just that it's very frustrating to see several posts a day saying "Why doesn't Duolingo have x language?" Duolingo probably will have a Hebrew course at some point but it's very low priority because most people in Israel speak very good English and it's not an endangered language.

Yeah I definitely understand how people could find people complaining about new languages annoying. After all, Duolingo does provide a good amount of languages for free! I myself don't know Hebrew, or any other languages well enough to be contributing,but my thought was that if the staff saw that more people wanted this language, then maybe it would be a higher priority. I see where you're coming from though and thanks for your insight.

I don't think that's the reason. If that was it, there would be no German either. It's probably more about applications to contribute, their amount, the order in which they are reviewed, things like that.

On second thought, there would be lots more people wanting to learn German than Hebrew... so bad example.
