Ancient Greek - PLEASE apply on Incubator to develop a new course!
I posted this comment on a separate thread from 5 years ago, which has over 800 upvotes and 200 comments. But maybe a new post will get noticed more easily...
If anyone wants to collaborate on this, please apply on the Incubator:
I've applied. But I assume they probably need several requests, from qualified candidates, in order to start a new incubator. I'd blow through this all by myself, if they'd let me.
I imagine the Modern Greek course could be used as a template. Maybe there are compatibility issues with polytonic Greek keyboards. I can envision many challenges to overcome, but no deal-breakers.
In my opinion, such a course should ideally be based in Attic Greek (using vocabulary & grammar from the Italian edition of Athenaze, for example). But Koine and Homeric forms could be included - to cast a wider net.
I already have a ton of Ancient Greek resources in a database (glossaries, declension tables, conjugation tables) which I can easily export into delimited data format - assuming that this may be useful for developing a Duolingo course.
PS - I have several Greek courses on my Memrise account, for anyone interested:
I hope it does take off. Attic or Koine is fine with me. Perhaps different skills to cover both? I just want to try to keep up my OU Greek and I took on Modern Greek in Duo but it's not ideal.
