Pastaboos Unite! Vote for Italy's Regional Dialects!
Duolingo just developed and released a wave of Chinese courses, now its time for an Italian wave. I (personally) would like to see:
Venetian for Italian Speakers
Sicilian for Italian Speakers.
Sicilian for English Speakers.*
Sardinian for Italian Speakers.
Neapolitan for Italian Speakers.
Piedmontese for Italian Speakers
*Note: The majority of Italian immigrants to the US were from Southern Italy and most likely spoke a dialect of Sicilian. For those with grandparents or great-grandparents that still speak Italian, Sicilian is most likely the "dialect" that they speak.
There was a post floating around claiming that if a language suggestion thread earns 800 upvotes from the community that Duolingo is more likely to consider adding the language to the incubator. If that's true, then let's upvote the threads for Italy's regional languages!
