Incremental, but Rome wasn't built in a day, goes the saying ...

    Hehe, nice one. Take some lingots.

    February 15, 2019

    Hey giver(s), thanks for being generous! The extra lingots help offset the 20 ones I had to plunk down, as opposed to going Plus, to level up a skill yesterday on my Android.

    However, such pay-to-play incidents, so to speak, should serve as a warning to us free riders/non-monetary contributors about house money gaining currency in scarcity.

    I earned my money by learning stuff. Least I can do, is help somebody else learn stuff to earn money.

    edit: also, this might coerce you into getting plus. I've mostly just been procrastinating on it.

    Looking forward to this! It's only been 35 years since my last Latin lesson!

    They have got a ton of work to do.. I like the saying "many hands make light work" better.

    That is splendid! I can hardly conceal my vast excitement about that

    Crossing my fingers for a Latin course late this year or early next year.
    Obviously I'd like to see it tomorrow, but I would rather wait for a properly developed tree than see an underdeveloped tree and/or one full of errors released too early.

    It's about time! :D

    Also, has anybody else noticed that they have 18 contributores now?

    February 15, 2019

    https://www.duolingo.com/KatrinaTheLamia

    I hope that when it is released there are plenty of fan art images of Duo the Owl telling people how Leviosa is pronounced! xD

    I also want information on who is learning Latin to sound profound, and who is learning it to summon the demons. xD

    February 18, 2019

    https://www.duolingo.com/ARCANA-MVSA

    I learned Latin sufficiently well in high school to summon demons. Now I'm just looking to continue it so I can summon patroni instead.

    Hah, I was annoyed at Alexa's Harry Potter quiz the other day because apparently my pronunciation of 'Obliviate' wasn't good enough to be accepted. It's 'Oblivi-ah-tay!'

    Everyone knows the demons will only come if you sound sufficiently profound, so it's both. I'll be learning it in order to be able to read really boring stuff like medieval housing deeds, tho.

    Nice! Does this mean Duolingo will have Latin, too?☺☺☺

    February 15, 2019

    https://www.duolingo.com/EpicRuler1414

    Yes they have just started making a course for Latin

    February 15, 2019

    https://www.duolingo.com/DanielTap135

    I'm going to add Latin to my languages. Hopefully.

      This is such excellent news! Our schools won't teach it, but we can get around that by coming here to be educated!

        That’s exciting. Though I’ve studied (not become fluent in!) several Romance languages, I have never studied Latin.

        AAAAAAAAA

        I'm VERY excited!!! I was thinking it'd take a while for there to be any visible progress on the Latin course.

        Oh, that's really cool! I'm not looking to learn Latin at the moment, but it's nice to know I'll eventually have the option if I decide to in the future.

        (By the way, this is completely off topic, but I love your profile picture :D)

        I don't know what is happening but the course making-progress is being disappeared. Few days ago it was like 3/4 but today it is just less than 1/2.

        March 30, 2019

        https://www.duolingo.com/Michael704761

        i noticed that too, I was excited thinking beta release is imminent but saw yesterday that it went back down :(

        looks like we may have lost a contributor I just checked and it was 18 instead of 19
