[X-Post] Apply to Team Korean!

  • Are you a (language) nerd?

  • Are you interested in making an impact?

  • Are you interested in working with a team of talented individuals across the world?

Then you'll fit right in the Duolingo Korean Team

The team is currently building Tree 2 (At least attempting to). However, as people may know, life brings unexpected tolls and the team (including me) isn't that active as it used to be. Hense, we are looking for one to two contributors who are willing to help bring the team back to speed. If you think you are the person that can rejuvenate the team, please apply.

However, be aware of these points before applying.

1. Ability to make a time commitment without pay.

I have to admit this is the toughest part these days personally, but if you are passionate about language learning, maybe you should give it a shot.

2. Actually be interested in the Korean language itself

I'll be brutally honest. Yes, this means you aren't doing this for "national pride" (I can rant about this for an hour but I want to save you guys some time). You aren't doing it for BTS (whatever that is) or the next big K-Pop band. None of the above constitutes a legitimate reason. You're doing this for your own interest in the Korean language and intellectual growth.

Anyways, I look forward to reading all of your applications. Happy learning!

I notice you don't put a requirement on Korean skill.. I imagine you'd want people who have learned the language to a relatively high level?

You should probably mention that in this post so you don't get too many applications from people who aren't fluent.

I'd want to be a part, but I'm not fluent enough...
