Luxembourgish?

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.

How would we differentiate the Dutch flag from the Luxembourgish flag?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/nathansk8s

Haha flag problems. I'm not sure but I think the duo team could think of something. Flag colors really isn't an issue that should keep us from making a language course available so that anyone that has internet is able to learn Luxembourigsh

Easy, just make the blue on the Dutch flag darker.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/dpmattos

You'd have to change the Dutch flag to dark blue. Speaking of which, the French flag's blue it's too light as well.

Make the Dutch flag Orange instead of red.

I was going to post about this but I thought no one would care. Luxembourg is an inside joke between my friends (I don't know how it came to be) but I would love to learn Luxembourgish.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ClaudiaMLD

I would love a Luxembourgish course. I just moved here and it would help me a lot ;)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/scleija

there already is a small Luxembourgish startup doing exactly that at https://www.luxify.lu


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vaccinemacca

The site's down :(


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sjeisenn

But you have to pay for luxify


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/scleija

you have to pay for beer.

It will be great to see such a course in the future


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/canadiangerman

Hopefully Luxembourgish will be added at some point. I've completed German and Dutch trees and would love to learn more languages from that area of Europe.

I have made a request to build a Luxembourgish course, I am a native speaker. I hope they'll accept me ;P


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/kieffeschdave

hey, wanna sit together and talk some time? sent me a message :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/YoImDirk

I made one too a few months ago. Bit disappointed that I didn't even get a message like "Thanks for your entry, we'll look at it". Just no reaction at all.

I live in Luxembourg and would like to learn Luxembourgish with Duolingo


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hgelbourg

I know this thread is three years old, but a Luxembourgish course would be amazing. I am very fascinated by Luxembourg, and very interested in learning the language.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Krazy.Kat

I am all for a Luxembourgish course!!

I'd take that course

    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.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GermanicFreak

    Anything to boost the amount of speakers for a minor Germanic language.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Andremoniy

    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.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Frosch0066

    I voted for Luxembourgish on one of the recent polls but I think it only got 5 votes. Unfortunately I wouldn't be able to contribute but I'd definitely be interested in learning.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Kittbo

    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


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LouisKG

    A very important language, one of the three official languages of The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, Groussherzogtum Lëtzebuerg (Luxembougish.)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ARCANA-MVSA

    Yes!! Luxembourgish is one that I definitely would be interested in learning.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Daniel122672

    I'd like to see the Luxembourgish language added too. It is very similar to the Moselle Franconian dialect of German right?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Christian368211

    It is indeed. I am a native speaker, fluently speaking french, german and english too. I‘d really like to contribute to a duolingo luxembourgish course. Could be fun and helpful for foreigners living in Luxembourg.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Andremoniy

    Hi Christian! If you need help, please feel free to contact me. I would love to help you with this endeavour, since I am studying Luxembourgish at the moment.

    Oh I would really love to see Luxembourgish on Dulingo!!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hanni209619

    I would take this course!!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Paulinka436886

    I would like to learn Luxembourgish. Create the contribute, please.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tracy382545

    I started learning Luxembourgish on Memrise and would LOVE to learn it on here. :) I hope one day that Duolingo will add this course to it's list of languages! :) Thanks for the post!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ThatOneKidJosh

    Did you think about the colors of the flags? Look at both of them.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Andremoniy

    Yes, it is a main problem of humanity - flag's colours hues. Indeed, it is a serious reason for not adding a new course because of the flag's hue. Come on!
