Im new and I am enjoying the whole concept of this system. The possibilities are limitless with the choices. I just wish there was Tagalog as well. Where I live it would be a huge bonus for me to know and speak Tagalog. Does anyone agree? Does any know if they will ad Tagalog?

You will see these 2 paragraphs: "If you are bilingual and want to help teach others, you may also apply to contribute to a new course. Proposed language courses are considered when there are enough great candidates to build them and learners and testers to help improve them." - "We have a long list of courses we intend to release, and also monitor the forums and applications for new potential language directions. If you want to make a suggestion, we encourage you to visit the forums and making a search for suggestions that have been made in the past, and adding your vote and comments to those existing posts.

I am learning Tagalog from lessons on YouTube, Google Translator, and from chatting with filipina friends. I wish Duolingo had a Tagalog course and a Visaya/Cebuano course, but currently they don't so I am learning on my own. Hopefully they will add those courses soon.
