Is any one interested on a Luxembourgish course on Duolingo. I can't speak Luxembourgish, but I wanted to ask to get a feel and see any one would want Luxembourgish.
I'm interested in a Luxembourgish course here! :) It's an interesting language, and I'd like to visit Luxembourg! :)
I'm amazed to see how dedicated you are. How do you manage to learn several languages at the same time and even to aim for more?
Thank you very much :) Because I have a lot of time on my hands, and I suppose this is just what I'm good at. :)
But not only time. I think you are good at languages, and you've got the motivation to keep going. ;)
Hahaha this made me laugh and it has been a bad week! I would say, this is the only thing I'm good at!
Why not, it is really close to Dutch and German, which can be a cool adding for DUolingo users. But I think it is not the priority right now...
Here is a language course to learn luxembourgish for free. http://www.elearning.lu/englishelearning/lb/intro/index.php
I am very surprised how many people are interested in learning luxembourgish and I must confess, that I can't write it. It is by most people only spoken.
If there was a Luxembourgish course I would love to give it a try! Hmm maybe this will bring the attention of some speakers and we may get a course in the future maybe.
I'd definitely dabble in a Luxembourgish course if it got released. :D I fully support it.
They could base it off the other Germanic Trees so it wouldn't take too long to make
YES YES YES YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I would LOVE a Luxembourg course!!!!!!!!!!!
I've made a request to build a course, 'cause I'm a native speaker. I hope they'll accept it ;)
Isn't Luxembourgish mutually intelligible with German? And if so, shouldn't they work on something of a higher priority?
Luxembourgish is a language, not a dialect of German, in fact if it wasn't, Luxembourg wouldn't make German a co-official language.
Whether a language has a high priority is subjective. Someone might say a Chinese for English speakers course is the most important course that needs to be added to the incubator, while another person might say a Chamicuro for English speakers course is. Duolingo adds languages according to who applies to contribute to a course.
Duolingo's priorities usually make sense for me. I can understand why they added Irish because it's a language that severely needs more speakers. I'm just wondering why there isn't a Tagalog course. I'm sure there's someone that is fluent in it and is willing to contribute to a course and has the time. I remember some people wanted an Old English course.
I didn't ask if Luxembourgish is a dialect of German, I asked if it is mutually intelligible with German. If Luxembourgish is mutually intelligible with German I would think that almost any other language would be a higher priority.
I'm Luxembourgish, I just say that so that nobody is attacked. It's difficult to make a difference between languages and dialects. You could for example say Danish was a Swedish dialct, or the otherway and to be honest, they are quite similar. In my opinion, the only difference between language and dialect is that every language is definied to be a language by a law. Such a law exists for Luxembourgish, so it's a language.
It is NOT intelligible to German, it is a mixture of German and French. VIVA LËTZEBUERG!
You got that right. :) But isn't Luxembourgish influenced by Dutch as well?
I'd want to try a Luxembourgish course. I've met someone from Luxembourg but that's pretty much all of my knowledge about it besides from my Duolingo Dutch course and some random bits of German I know.
I would love to go Luxembourg one day and would love to learn Luxembourg as well! I know that if you move to Luxembourg, they give you paid time off from work to go learn the language.
And if you retire there, even if you do not live in Luxembourg, they offer a huge pension.
Yes!!! I will be living just a few miles from Luxemborg, and that is what my village speaks.
I'm interested in a letzeburgish course. That's how they call the language of Luxemburg
