Thanks for compiling this list, Kristine.

There are two more updates remaining for this year. I hope you will be able to add them above just to make the listing for 2014 complete!

If that is the progress in one year I'm scared for what it will be like in five, ten or twenty years! (I'm going to hide in a corner now) By the way: Nice work Duo team and language incubator helpers on the progress! Happy learning y'all! Happy holidays! :D

Obviously they can't keep up the same rate, they'd exceed the number of living (and then dead and artificial) languages!

Duo's power is infinite. We will have to feed it more languages. Our only hope is that it will be satisfied when it becomes conscious.

45 courses in a year! That's really impressive. I want to learn every languages available but can't keep learning with same pace. So, I think, there always be some language to learn for me. I am eager to see what new additions we will get in next year. I can't imagine what Duolingo will be in next 5-6 years. It would be really awesome to learn from great variety of languages. I hope, soon the non-Latin based scripts will flourish and add beauty on Duolingo.

I hope that Maltese will soon be in its rightful place - on Duolingo!

My goal to keep me going - I hope for Maltese to go into Phase 1 in 2015!

Why does StrapsOption not show up as a Contributor? :)

December 19, 2014

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

'Cos he ain't! One has to be fluent, and I do not have sufficient proficiency in the language unfortunately. As you will see here, there has actually been another applicant since - KarateKay.

What happened to this course?

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Eey91

It is amazing to see this work featured by admins, I'm one of those who waits every sunday to read the post =). Suggestion perhaps for next year, why not making it a sticky post every week, it can be changed to avoid sticky posts spam.

Thanks jitengore for your dedication with this!

I hope more Asian languages will to arrive on the scene next year. The courses for Japanese, Korean, Hindi, Chinese, Vietnamese, Arabic, Thai, Russian along with Persian, Tamil and Bengali will shine like Diamonds. They will be like nuggets for the Duolinguist, linguaphile or language lovers.
