New Language Suggestion

I think Duolingo should have Sanskrit because it's kind of a dying language and it has a deep and rich history to it. If you could consider it that would be cool!

I totally agree. Bengali would be great too :D

And Punjabi! :)

Punjabi would be amazing for us Canadians. It's really widely spoken here - there are even ice hockey games broadcast in Punjabi!

If you considering to add Sanskrit language, then you should also add Lithuanian language as this langues is the oldest alive language. Lithuanian language has relations with Sanskrit language and having in mind the significant geographic distance between India and Lithuania this similarity is a mystery. http://vilnews.com/2011-04-incredible-indian-lithuanian-relations-2 Lithuanian language is mother tongue language for around only 3 million people.

Interesting article!

Lithuanian language is the oldest and least changed alive language

Another side question: Has Duolingo considered these languages before? Latin and Sanskrit would be pretty cool.

A Latin course is in the making. However, if you use the resources that are already available online, you'll have learned Latin by the time it is released here. And then you can use Duo for revision, adding vocab, etc.

Sanskrit a dying language? Not exactly; some people in India speak it nativly; and it has such a rich literary tradition that people will always want to learn it.
