Two courses ready to hatch and it is time for Turkish
It is time for the launch of the Turkish course. I sense a huge sense of euphoria around this course and I can see the list of course flags next to the user aliases extend even further very soon. But before we talk more about the Turkish course, let us congratulate the FR<-PT team who were the first to reach the line.

With this, there are now two courses at 100% and are ready to hatch as soon as the final checks are complete. This is especially exciting because the last time a course hatched was back in last November.

The Turkish team has persevered thru the unique challenges they faced in adding the first agglutinative language to Duolingo.

Congratulations to both these teams and to Team Duo as well who have always been on the top of their game!

Mean, median & mode
Thanks to the community for resoundingly voting for this change. The median will be a permanent part of the report. I would like to keep the Mode for some time to see how useful we find it.

The Ukrainian team has cleared a few unused template words and that has caused a significant jump in their progress which seems slightly artificially inflated.

Also, it is nice to hear from Team Irish and Team Korean in this update. Enjoy!

Phase 3 Week 6: I know...It's been a while

Dia daoibh!

It has been 6 weeks since we graduated from beta and we have been pretty quiet since then, but I am here to break the silence and bring you up to speed. But hey, it's not all about us...how are you?

  • New Contributor: We announced well over a month ago that we were recruiting a new contributor but you may have noticed that no new contributor has been invited yet. Fear not! We have extended our deadline to St. Patrick's Day so we have some more time to go through the applications (we got quite a few!)
  • Audio: We received two audio samples several weeks ago, one was Munster dialect and the other was Connemara. Both of which were improvements over the current voice, but we weren't convinced that they were the best we could get. After that, things died down for a bit (people get busy, y'know?), but now we are trying our best to get the ball rolling again and we hope to have a new voice...dare I say it...Soon™
  • Tree Versioning: As you may have seen, a new version of the French tree was released recently. This is good news for us as it shows us how tree versioning will work. We are expecting the ability to create another tree version in the coming weeks and after that, we will be putting our Tree 2.0 plan into action.
  • Seachtain na Gaeilge: Tomorrow (Sunday, March 1st) marks the first day of Seachtain na Gaeilge ("Irish Week", though in reality, it is 17 days long). We will have a special post in the forums every day during SnaG so stay tuned tomorrow for more information!

End of Week Stats

  • No. of users: 435k
  • No. of reports per 100 users: 2.5
  • Stability: We're in Phase 3, so this doesn't really matter :P

That's all for today! Slán!

En<->Ko Update

Hello fellow Duolingoers! I am S_Park., moderator for the English for Korean speakers course. I first would like to apologize for not keeping people informed about the course over the past few months. Many of us were busy (some still are) and we didn't really have time to update anyone.

First thing's first, as many of you might have noticed, we have a new contributor, @EunyoungAn. Please welcome her to Team Korean :D

Second, I would first like to inform everyone that we are still looking for new members (Hence the reason why the update was done in English). Please refer to the previous update for information.

Lastly, I would like to wish each and everyone of you a (late) happy Lunar New Year. We would like to thank all of you for patiently cheering us on through beta. Team Korean has gone through many challanges since the course was started, and we hope that this year there will be many great things to come.

AlexinTurkey from Team Turkish wrote 3 hours ago:

100% Complete!!!

Selam! Hey!

So, we have completed our tree! Great, great news! I cannot thank Selcen, Emel, Nur, Ilke, and Gamze enough for being an awesome team. We have finally tamed the beast of translation and creating a course from complete scratch, something that is very difficult and time consuming. We also are the first ever non-Indo-European language to have ever achieved this on Duolingo. It is pretty amazing to think about.

This being said, we still have a lot of work to do. We need to add finish editing the tree (I have almost finished editing the English, but we still have to edit the Turkish), test the course, listen to all of the audio files, and write grammar explanations. The developers also will need to sort out some bugs in the course itself, which is entirely out of our control. Both of us will still need some time before we can release the course. Please be patient during this process. We are not going to release the course until both us and the Duolingo staff feel it is ready. This means, like I said last week, "Please oh please do not write on mine or Selcen's wall asking for the date. We do not know!"

Keeping this in mind, we are proud to be at this point. We have decided a while back that we were going to release a shortened version of the tree so that we can give you the course faster. As we wrap up Phase 1 of our course, feel free to thank our team for all of their hard work and the staff of Duolingo for this opportunity. Turkish will finally be out Soon™.

Best,

Alex, Selcen, and the Turkish Team

Trang. from Team Vietnamese write an hour ago:

VI-EN Weekly Update

So far we have completed 200 words + 60 word images. We are trying to focus on delivering a quality course for you so it might take longer than expected. Meanwhile, you can take the memrise course that I just created here. It covers a lot of vocabulary in our course and is under construction so feel free to join and enjoy it :)

TL;DR Two courses reach 100%. I expect them to hatch in the next few days! This is exciting considering that the last hatching was back in November!

The next update is expected on Sunday, 8th of March at 3:00 pm UTC. The daylight saving time will begin on March 8th, so changing the UTC time.

YAY!!!!!!!! :D Turkish!!! :D Go team!! Awesome Selcen!! :D And Alex :D I can't wait for your course!! I'm just so excited XD It's going to be the best course ever :P

By the way, the huge jump in Ukrainian progress, may be made from deleting template skills (template = skills from the tree they're building off of).

The Norwegian course is doing awesome, as always! Whatever they have, I want some of it :D And thanks for clarifying that whole mess about the dress, team Norwegian. I was right all along ;)

And yay!! Even if the Greek progress is slow, they're working on the course! :D

Wow!! Congrats to the new contributor in team Irish!! And happy Seachtain na Gaeilge! :D

And thanks, Trang! I'll definitely try out your Memrise course :D

it is a shortened tree, but we actually included quite many grammar concepts. The main thing we "shortened" was the lessons in the advanced parts of the tree; we have mostly only 1-2 lessons down the tree.

Well, some more obscure verb tenses that are important, but not vital. A lot of ways to express time expresses (i.e. there are multiple ways to say "when" in Turkish....we will not teach all of them). We are only teaching 1486 words. And various other things!

I don't know about that, there seem to be several million speakers each of Low German and Bavarian, and possibly also Franconian and Alemannic. Not sure how many Turkish speakers there are in Germany though.

Farsi is not hard. The only hard part would be if you can't pronounce some Arabic letters. Farsi follows almost the same language rules of many European languages. And it is pretty flexible in its word order, like German. Oh and if you speak French, you already know half of farsi xD

As a native Arabic speaker I would love to see an Arabic course here, but the problem is "Arabic syntax" (grammar) the name is scary I know, many -if not most- do not have the ability to speak "formal" Arabic as it should be, for me I can speak 80% according to the correct Arabic syntax but I have no ability to explain why is this sentence is built in this way. nevertheless, Arabic is the most hardest language of grammar, it is even a challenge for a native Arabic speaker, at the moment I'm learning Arabic syntax, when I'm done with it I will apply to contribute in an Arabic course, making it the first Semitic language in duolingo, and I'm 100% ready to contribute in building a Farsi course, I have full awareness of Farsi grammar and vocabulary and it is easy for me to teach it... and Hebrew is an easy language for me to learn because it is a Semitic language too and I've found many words of one root in Arabic and Hebrew I would love to learn Hebrew too...

3 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/HebrewLearner

Doesn't Arabic have several different dialects? I've heard that they are not intelligible with each other. If that is true, what dialect will Duolingo teach and what dialect is being taught English?

Which dialect will Duolingo teach?

Most likely Modern Standard Arabic. That's the official language, so to speak - the dialects are all colloquial. All the news, newspapers, etc. are in MSA, and all Arabic speakers know MSA.

What dialect is being taught English?

MSA

Well, the good news is that the Russian progress for the week was actually 62%.

However, I received the news after the bell. that is, after I posted my update.

In the same way, I have learned that the Ukrainian actual increase was around +1%. Unfortunately, I do not have the time right now to make these corrections. Let us wait for the self correction next week.

Slow but sure is just fine! I hope you manage to find someone, but I'm sure it's best to wait for the right fit.

I would apply to contribute, but there's no way my Russian is currently good enough, I'm so out of practice. Once upon a time I was fluent, now not so much :-/

(PS, I can also identify with randomly falling asleep in the middle of the day... 8-o)

Last summer was pretty crazy. Here's one with three teams reaching 16%. The record, I believe, is somewhere between 30-40%.

Thanks for the memrise course!

For those who are like me and want to learn to type in Vietnamese (and can't figure out how to effectively use the Vietnamese keyboard built into Windows), I suggest trying the typepad on this site: http://yourvietnamese.com/language/vietnamese-typepad.html. It's letting me learn Telex without having to install anything on my computer.

My company's firewall is blocking the download from unikey.org (it's being flagged as a virus), which seems like the best long-term solution, since it directly integrates with my existing keyboard layout. If anyone can vouch for the safety of the UniKey software, please let me know. It has really good ratings on Sourceforge, so I'm pretty confident that it's safe.

Or if anyone knows of a better way to use Telex or otherwise write in Vietnamese, please let me know. I'd prefer to use a system that integrates with Colemak (my preferred keyboard format), like Telex.

Thanks!

Were you going for IPA there? č isn't IPA, and /y/ is a vowel sound.

This is very cool! I can't wait to start learning French from my mother language. :)

Still, what happened to team Hungarian? They were having slow, but steady progress for quite some time but it suddenly stopped... That's sad, as their course seems to be one of the most promising ones...

I hope Russian is done by the time I am done with French for Portuguese speakers! I have been been awaiting it's arrival! I might give Turkish a go. Seems great! I would love some courses for Swedish speakers. Sure Swedish is my 7th language but I soooo want to use it to learn other languages like I am doing with my 5th language which is Portuguese.

I think Duo should promote the learning of the most distant language possible from one's current language (or mix of languages). For example, if someone is learning Italian, they could easily mess with Irish and not worry about mixing anything up since they're so different.

The same cannot be said for pairings such as Italian & Spanish. Of course, this same scenario applies to those who would learn German & Dutch at once, or Swedish & Danish.

Thus, it would behoove them to encourage learners who can't help but dive into more than one language to select, say, Turkish & French, Hungarian & Italian, Irish & Spanish, Ukrainian & Portuguese, etc. This could even be promoted with some sort of language family diagram (i.e. a tree or even table) or language family distinction on the flag. Seems like something more than worth exploring, especially considering how many learners discuss concurrent acquisition of multiple languages in the "Discussion" area of the site.

Thanks ONCE AGAIN. Man, I just can't wait for your course!

Almost all Swedish speakers are fluent in English. That's why they went ahead and made a Swedish for English course without first constructing an English for Swedish course.

The Duolingo courses page has all this information. Although it is only accessible with an "API call" and for courses which already have a landmark, something you can only manage to get if know a bit of programming.

Sure, if you want to get information on a specific course. You can use this simple function:

$.get("https://www.duolingo.com/api/1/courses/"+ "fr"+"/"+"es"+"/show?ui_language_abbrev=en", function (data, textStatus, jqXHR) { console.log(data.from_language_name +"-"+data.learning_language_name+ " -- Phase 3 (" + data.released_date + ") Phase 2 ("+ data.beta_date + ") Phase 1 (" + data.start_date+")" ); }) .fail(function() { console.log('Not available'); });

You just need to enter that function in your internet browser console.

P.S. You need to be in this domain (www.duolingo.com) for that to work. It won't work if you attempt it from incubator.duolingo.com or elsewhere.
