Dear DuoLingo, will you ever offer Tagalog (Filipino) lessons?

In a couple of popular internet communities I frequent a lot of people speak Tagalog or a mix of Tagalog and English. I wanted to learn a bit of the language, so I can eavesdrop a bit as it's a good way to practice. There are just no good resources for learning Tagalog. My ex was half Filipino, wanted to learn the language, and could't find any resources for it, either. I hope you will consider adding it to your selection in the future.

To help with Tagalog-for-English course

If you speak Tagalog and you want to help create a Tagalog course, please apply to become a contributor by following these steps. Maraming Salamat :)

(1) Click "Help" https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us

(2) Under the heading "Incubator" Click "How can I suggest a new language course?" https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/articles/204979660-How-can-I-suggest-a-new-language-course-

You will see these 2 paragraphs: "If you are bilingual and want to help teach others, you may also apply to contribute to a new course. Proposed language courses are considered when there are enough great candidates to build them and learners and testers to help improve them." - "We have a long list of courses we intend to release, and also monitor the forums and applications for new potential language directions. If you want to make a suggestion, we encourage you to visit the forums and making a search for suggestions that have been made in the past, and adding your vote and comments to those existing posts. That will make the request more popular and make it stand out more, encouraging more people to add their votes. :)"

(3) Click "apply to contribute" https://incubator.duolingo.com/apply

(4) On that page, fill in the form: "Apply to become a Course Contributor" "Which course would you like to contribute to?" "Tagalog for English speakers"

I am learning Tagalog from lessons on YouTube, Google Translator, and from chatting with filipina friends. I wish Duolingo had a Tagalog course and a Visaya/Cebuano course, but currently they don't so I am learning on my own. Hopefully they will add those courses soon.

Yes.. I already applied to the incubator to offer Tagalog and let just hope they accept it. It's really just easy to learn especially if you know Spanish/Latin cause their words are mostly the same (meaning and pronounciation) just differs in spelling a bit. The most common used sentence structure is verb-subject-object. E.g: E: "I can do this." T: "Kaya(can do) ko(I) ito(this)." So it'll be "Kaya ko ito."

I'd love to help as a contributor to a Filipino course, if ever, but there doesn't seem to be any Filipino language developments in the DuoLingo incubator. Any idea how to suggest Filipino as an option in the incubator?

Or any dialogue? I agree, I would love to learn Filipino.I don't think it's that hard to learn.

Some people find it hard to learn our language some they find it easy. I don't know about you.
