Why is Navajo such a short course?
I started learning Navajo out of curiosity, but I noticed that the language only has about 10 skills. I haven't even finished the first skill yet, but I doubt that even if you finished the whole language you would even be somewhat fluent. Why is this? Duo couldn't even find contributors? Maybe I'm just wrong, and the course is amazing. It is in beta, after all. I just want some insight from someone who has actually learned Navajo and can clear this up for me.
The reason why it is a limited course is because Duolingo has trouble finding contributors who can actually create a lot of content for the course. Navajo, being a Native American language, is what Duolingo considers to be an endangered language (although there are still about 150,000 native speakers). I tried applying to become a contributor for the course but they have not gotten back to me yet. If you want to have some more content, please do take a look at this Memrise course I created: https://decks.memrise.com/course/2215337/navajo-1/.
That is unfortunate but expected from Duolingo. They often operate in obscurity and weird secrecy. This sucks for those who believe in their companies mission and product.
Thank you for trying. We appreciate you and those like yourself that want to volunteer to make courses better for those of us who are interested.
