The Beauty of Yiddish’s progress

After years of waiting and what seemed to be a year or more of dead silence Yiddish appears to be making progress again. I truly want to express my gratitude for your guys’ progress. I greatly appreciate it and truly look forward to completing the Yiddish course. I wish you all good luck and a keep at it!

I saw the progress in the weekly incubator update.

I hope Yiddish never gets released, because hardly anyone will learn it.

I hope it gets released, as I'd like to learn it. Anyway, why should one hope that one language won't ever be released. You'll not be forced to study it, just because it is released on Duolingo, right?

Even if this is true (which depends on how you define 'hardly anyone'—several million people is 'hardly anyone' in global terms), you should still be hoping it does get released as soon as possible so DL can reallocate the incubator spot to a language you might consider to be more useful.
Having languages lying dormant in the incubator for years is bad both for the people who want to learn them and the people who do not.

I also think you underestimate the interest in this course; there has been a long, simmering enthusiasm for it by an awful lot of people on these forums for a very long time.

So glad you posted this--I've been wanting to learn Yiddish for so long, and had forgotten Duolingo was working on this.
