Does Duolingo plan on adding new languages in the near future?

I know there's been a lot of topics about this already, and this may seem pointless, but I was just wondering if this was ever actually going to happen, and whether it would be something that is going to be a while off, like years, or something that is achievable soon?

I understand that there are a lot of languages in the world, and some people are fine with the ones on offer, and that duolingo can't just add every language out there. I also understand that some languages are much harder to learn than the ones currently on offer, but I know I'm not the only one who wants languages like Japanese and Chinese.

I know I have to wait, I'm just wondering whether or not I'm waiting for something that's not going to happen, that's all. I know Duolingo said they will probably add more but I'm wondering if they're actually working on this or planning on ever working on this.

Hi,

Well maybe with a little more of reading of some (3 or 4) of the numerous post about the subject you're speaking about, you'll have find the info...

Before posting a question, please look for it into the forum through the "search" function or just by scrolling down: probably someone already asked it and had an answer.

For your question you can search, for example, "New Language" or new AND language in the search function. You will find plenty of exact same questions and with the answer that Duolingo told that they're working on a way to let users add new language and that they will not add any other more by themselves. And it's believed to be available on 9th october 2013. (http://www.duolingo.com/comment/782462)

Duolingo are working on a tool which members can use to add languages themselves. This is one of the most likely things that the 'hatching' thing that's 'coming to Duolingo' soon (October 9) see http://www.duolingo.com/comment/782462 for more info. If the community adding tools are not wha this is, it's going to be something completely random. Also, many of the staff have talked about the language adding tools being implemented. When they are there will probably be many more languages to choose from!
