Has anyone applied in the incubator be help build a Luxembourgish course? If not maybe someone who speaks it can? Since a lot people in Luxembourg speak Luxembourgish, French, German and English it would be super easy to make a Luxembourgish team that can create a course for those languages. A duolingo Luxembourgish course would cause more people to learn the language which only has 400,000 speakers world wide based on information I seen on Wikipedia. Neighboring counties such as France and Germany could learn the National Language to be more connected in a social and business sense.
My name is Christiane Bramburger. I’m a Project Assistant at Appen, an listed international language technology solutions and consulting firm in Australia (ASX:APX).
We are initiating a Luxembourgish project for the purpose of improving user experience with our language system and to preserve the language through digital storage.
We are currently looking for native Luxembourgish speakers to work on a prompt disambiguation task of the language, the first stage of the project.
This is an easy project. The work involves categorising prompts into different categories according to the guidelines given.
Here are some key requirements:
• You will need have a computer installed with Chrome browser. • You must be a native speaker of the language. • Capable of following instruction materials written in English and communicate in English • You will need to have an availability of 20 hours per week for 5-10 weeks (optional).
If you or someone you know meet the requirements and are interested in contributing to this project, please do let me know.
This is a paid opportunity. You will need to have either PayPal or Skrill to receive payment from us.
We will get in touch shortly after we receive the expression of interest. Should you have any questions, please let me know.

Luxembourgish would be an easy language to learn and create with prior knowledge in similar languages like French, Dutch, and German.
I'd love to see that come to fruition on Duolingo.
Any progress on it? It's a shame that the Luxembourgish course is still not here. I have a feeling that it is not done deliberately because of a lot people are trying to make money from creating their own Luxembourgish courses and tutorials, while Duolingo is essentially for free. But I should say no one electronic Luxembourgish course I've tried so far can be compared with the Duolingo platform in terms of its usability and efficiency.
Yes, please keep pursuing this. I find it annoying that you MUST specify a language to learn when joining Duolingo, but Luxembourgish is not among the options. Happily, there is also a good and newly active r/learnluxembourgish/ subreddit with lots of resources, including this: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/19593559
