The 'Duo goes' Series Directory

This is a directory of posts made to support the cause of getting certain languages added to Duolingo. 'Duo goes' posts generally follow the same format - Duo goes to a country, takes in the beautiful scenery, then comes home and makes a course for the language. We are always making more. If you would like to make one, then go here. They are listed here in chronological order. Enjoy!

A big thanks to Zzzzz... and Anneysha7 for helping to co-ordinate the projects and the graphics! Zzzzz... kindly made a post to describe how to make a Duo goes post. Please refer to this!

NEWS: The Duo Goes series has been passed onto a new willing and highly capable active member of Duolingo, namely Zzzzz.... Here is the new directory. Delighted to see the series resurrected!

Wow, glad your "Duo goes to Malta" inspired a series. Thanks for the directory! :)


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

Grazzi! I didn't think it would be quite so popular.


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

Really now Straps...

I of course knew it would from the beginning!


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

I am making you goes to Macedonia right now should be out on,JUNE 27,2017.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/carrots084

Did it ever come out?


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

How long till Duo goes to Norway? ... Or even Serbia?


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

As soon as someone is willing to make one! By the way, pictures are like this:

![](image url)


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

Mhux problema! If you have a language you're really dying for...?


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

could you make some pictures? could I do a duo goes to Norway?


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

Of course! Post the pictures of Norway and the pictures of Duo the Owl that you want used here.


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

OMG I'm on the list. I actually feel so happy I want to cry

(if you think I'm crazy it's so, heaps of people do)


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

I'm just surprised so many people want to do it!


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

Duh because the trend was started by you obviously :)


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

How the heck do you pronounce a glottal stop after an s?!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Anna._

It'd be nice to see one about Khmer as I haven't seen anyone talk about it and there are no good sources online for it. I think it would be a great idea to embrace it here Cambodia is an extremely poor country that has had many beatings, sharing the language could help more people get out there and do charity work.


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

I like these posts! I hope all these langauges get to be on Duo


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

Yup, definitely!


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

Wow, it's a series now! I've really enjoyed reading them. They really plunge you into the culture of each country and they are all very well written.

I better read the third; I haven't read it yet!


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

No you do Wales! :)

You know where to go!


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

That's a long waiting list! This is going to be quite some series with all of the countries being visited!


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

Poor Straps. You must be so busy


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

There should be a "Duo goes to Qo'noS" for the Klingon course.


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

Can you make more?


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

There will be an Amharic one coming soon enough. People have to ask me which country to make pictures for, and then they need to post a discussion.


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

I really love these posts! I think they're super fun! Hopefully some more will come in the future.


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

There will be more very soon.


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

Can I make a Duo goes to Thailand?


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

You can send me images of Thailand whenever it suits you!


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

I can't wait for Duo goes to Australia! :D


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

What language will they be doing? Australia has hundreds of Indigenous languages.


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

None there are too many! :P


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

Then why are you doing a Duo goes to if you are not doing a particular language. I thought you were doing Sydney for which you could do Dharug the Indigenous language of Sydney. But seriously please do a language


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

Ok I'll do it :D It's just going to take even longer.


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

Trust me that won't be a problem :)

Thanks for not taking my comment the wrong way. I wish you all the best!

BTW love the username


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

I don't know anything about Dharug... And I don't have the time to do research with my hectic schedule. Sorry :(


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

So what language are you doing?


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

No languages... just focusing on Sydney.


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

I don't mean to sound rude or mean or pessimistic but seriously if you're just going to do a variety of English please don't make the post. I'm Aussie too but seriously @StrapsOption has a huge waiting list and you've taken a space just for a variety of English. (It seems like it from the comments to your comment)

Again I may sound mean but I don't mean to be. It's not too late for you to revise what you are going to say and include places of significance to the Dharug people.

Think of it this way: you have an amazing opportunity to tell the world about one of our awesome languages.

Do it. Please


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

Perhaps you could try Australian English words/terms that originally came from Indigenous languages? Because there are a lot of them. :) http://andc.anu.edu.au/australian-words/vocabulary/borrowings-from-australian-aboriginal-languages


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

That's the desired reaction.


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

Hello, Straps! Are you still around? I was hoping to revive the Duo Goes Series and I think a new directory is necessary. What do you think? :)


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

Interesting timing, I just started using the website again!

Personally I no longer have the time to continue managing a directory but if you want to start a new one as you said and take full control of the whole Duo Goes project, you absolutely can do that. I will add a link to the new directory on this one if you make it. If there's any other way I can chip in, I'll do my best.

It's been well over a year since the last addition, so it will be interesting to see how many people remember this!


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

Thank you for your blessing. I will make the new directory later this week. :)


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

Awesome, I'll keep an eye out!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/2014siri

Hi Zzzzz, sorry for bumping in - just wanting to say hello


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

Hello. I am very, very, very slowly going through the list of my friends, sending emails or contacting them/you in some other way. First, however, I will try to get things to some level of normalcy on Duolingo, so this may take a while. I am taking things nice and slow this time. :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/2014siri

I know <3 - I don't expect anything! Take care :)


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

I'll probably have to publish a Duo goes to France!It'd be just perfect!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D


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

And Duo could start a French course for Greek speakers :D


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

How are the pictures added to the discussions?


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

Like this:

![](image url)

You can look for an image online, copy its url, and paste it between the parentheses. A complete formatting guide can be found here.


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

Oh, you did it yourself. Well done!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Anna._

I decided to try it out, I hope it looks decent enough haha


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

It's very, very well done.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Anna._

Thank you, I'm glad you think that!


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

Everytime I see these series it makes me think of that movie with Audrey Tautou, le fabuleux destin d'Amelie. Nice marketing though :)


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

The link for Duo goes to South Africa is the one for CHina


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

Thank you for fixing it


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

I clicked on the for Duo Goes to South Africa,and it was the same link for China,you aren't having the same problem?No biggie,just curious.


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

I see you've added a sneak preview! I'd say either Iran or Iraq...


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

Probably Iran by someone who's a genius.


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

calls MaedeSafaee who's currently chilling in Iran ;)


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

Ho hum! Sorry, I don't what that means.


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

The empty slot above under South Africa says "Duo goes to I by G"


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

No sorry, I meant I don't know what 'ho hum' means.


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

Can I make " Duo goes to Vietnam" because I am a Vietnamese. I think I understand my country very much


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

Yes, I never actually got a message from LifeIsTerrible saying s/he wanted to do Vietnam, so I think you can. Notice the waiting list though.


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

Thanks, I just start it


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

I hope I can help you in "Duo goes to the Philippines" ^_^


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

Great, thanks! Can you speak Tagalog?


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

Yes! I'm a native speaker ^_^ Just tell me what you need and I'll see what I can provide. :) By the way, I'm really sorry I didn't reply on time. I'm usually busy with school matters. Sorry.


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

That's alright! Have you applied to make a course?


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

I will apply, but I'm still taking my time to be prepared. :)


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

In your own time, don't rush your application!


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

Okay, I won't rush it. Salamat po! (Thank you in Filipino) Just tell me if you need help. ^_^


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

Most probably will do! Walang anuman at salamat!


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

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

I'm hoping for Duo goes to Malaysia!


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

It seems that there are not many Malaysians who play this game.


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

I am interested in making "Duo goes to Slovenia"! Would love to present my country and language! :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/soheyl.moheb

I don't know why the guys responsible for "Duo goes to " don't answer I sent 3 messegage a year ago to the guy in charge, and he said I'll inform you (I wanted to do one for Azerbaijan) but he hasn't yet answered me.

it's a bit rude


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

I contacted you about Duo goes to Azerbaijan 3 months ago. I left a new message in your activity. I hope you can find it. As you can see you are in the directory, and we would love to see Duo goes to Azerbaijan. :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/soheyl.moheb

hey zzz, thanks so much for your response; it's so good to finally have some one to answer about this.


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

Sorry, that'll be me (well, probably). I've been super busy, exams etc.


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

Hello! Duo goes to Nunavut is now here: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/22425938 :)


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

Can we have 1 for Croatian?


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

If you post a few urls here of pictures of Croatian landmarks and pictures of Duo to match them, I will make it for you.


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

OMG! Duo goes to the Philippines! :O


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

Yes, one of latest fascinations. I look forward to making it.


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

Thanks! I can't wait to see it!


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

Maraming salamat! Marunong ka ba ng Tagalog nang perpekto?


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

Oo, Pilipino ka ba?


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

Hindi ako Pilipino, pero sinusubukan kong matuto ng Tagalog.


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

Ang galing mo naman!

It should be, "Hindi ako Pilipino, pero sinusubukan kong matuto ng Tagalog."


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

Maraming salamat! Thanks for the corrections too, I will remember that.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/leonardinh1

Wow, this is neat!


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

Grazzi! Any particular language you're waiting for?


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

Hmmm...they already have Scots Gaelic, so I actually don't. I really want Scots Gaelic! (You can tell that I have friends who want it too, because one has a Scottish flag for their picture!)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Anna._

I see there is a Duo goes to Thailand coming up! I can't wait for that one, I've been very very patiently waiting for the English for Thai speakers to be completed so that the reverse could start. It's been so long I hope it happens soon Thai was my first Asian language love I'll just continue watching my lakorns for the time being haha


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

Belgium? Belgium speaks three languages and all of them are already here. Where can I find the Duo goes to Slovenia post?


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

Belgium speaks Flemish, that isn't here. 'Duo goes to Slovenia' hasn't been made yet, it's on the waiting list.


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

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

WOW, I just discovered this series. This is awesome. Some of the language courses have already been created while others are in the incubator. I'll keep checking back to see where Duo goes to next.
