Is the Danish course completely forsaken?

Four months ago Contributor Moderator Xneb gave us an update on the Danish course and was looking for additional contributors. And since then nothing is happening, at least not in plain sight. There are still serious errors in many exercises, not corrected despite numerous comments or error reports, some of them as old as 3 years.

Dear contributors, are you working on the 2.0 tree behind the scenes? If yes, could you please give us at least an estimated timeline? And is there a chance to correct the numerous current mistakes or is the course going to be completely overhauled, so it makes no sense to correct them now?

Please, give us ANY news.

there is a possibility of a reverse tree, but so far noting is happening

https://incubator.duolingo.com/courses/en/da/status

but I have to agree, it does need an overhaul.

Yes, I was waiting for the reverse tree in order to do it after I finish the current one (I am getting close to reaching level 4 in all the skills now). And now it's not in the incubator anymore...

why would they do a reverse tree

So that people could English from Danish. Might be useful for Danes and other Scandinavians learning English (it is not a skill Danes are born with) and people who want to take the reverse course here on Duolingo.

Yes. Although most of the Danes I had contact with speak perfect English, there were also some who don't.

In Denmark, Sweden and Norway they speak very good English! But maybe there are some who don't. Last year I occacionally met one ;-)

They learn it at school, one supposes, and Duolingo has options for schools.

(I would not say the English is perfect, but it is quite good.)

They reacted to one report around the time of Xneb's announcement, but maybe there was too much pressure and they could not do it. I guess the number of reports is formidable by now.

This is the first I've heard of this-- just started Danish this week and would love to see it sorted. Commenting so I can get updates.

Please don't let my complaints scare you. This course is still rather good. It just needs some overhaul and moderator attention to get even better.

Held og lykke med din læring!
