English for Korean speakers is now in beta!
We're excited to let you know that English for Korean speakers is now in beta today! Thank you to everyone that contributed to this course and to the Duolingo team.
As with any course that enters beta, please report any errors or missing translations you find. By doing that you're improving the course for future learners. Thank you!
I hope so too, but I after going through the first couple of lessons I noticed they had very few alternate translations (very important because of all the different levels of formality). I get the impression it will be a very long time before the English course is polished enough for them to move on to the Korean course for English speakers.
Just a query though, some beta courses seem to have immersion activated and others don't. The dictionaries for those languages still don't exist?
If so, I think it would still be beneficial to have them activated as L1 speakers can help L2 speakers with the words they don't know, and so on. Although it may still be a risky proposition.
I think that making a Korean course for English will be nice. I'm so happy a lot of people are now interested in my homeland!
Yep, definitely in beta. I wrote English as I would speak and it listed me as incorrect!
ㅋㅋㅋ Wow... I am impressed with your Korean considering you are a foreigner! Are you an English teacher in Korea? (Sorry if you are offended... The only foreign people that I know in Korea are foreign teachers and military personnel!)
Wow! Seems a lot of students are coming to Korea to study! The other day, there was a foreigner from I think the US or Europe competing in Running Man... At this pace, Korean will become an important language in the future (Maybe it might earn AP course status)!
Now please add Swedish and Esperanto to the incubator. The winners of the recent poll!
That is wonderful to learn how to speak Korean!!! I wish that there are more langauge to speak, which is very wonderful to learn new culture and to meet new people. I would like learn how to speak Taglog because I have relatives living in the Philippines. But maybe someday, keep up the good work!!!
