Thai Language

Is anyone interested in Thai on Duolingo.

June 13, 2015


Yes, it's by far the main language I want to learn. Please make Thai ASAP!

September 28, 2016

Hey I started petition

August 1, 2019

Kyle, do you realize that you have spammed people with over 10,000 emails tonight? And that's not counting all the people following this thread, just the ones who made comments here. Don't you know that when you write one comment here we all get e-mails telling us what you wrote, each time you write it? All of us here want a Thai class. We don't need the same message sent to us over and over again, we got it the first time.

August 1, 2019

Perdonally I believe the more courses the better!

June 13, 2015

I plan to do a study abroad in Thailand this coming January so I would really like to learn Thai before then

May 10, 2017

same, I am currently an exchange student in Thailand and it would really help me improve my Thai​ and help me communicate more with my hosts

March 3, 2019


June 13, 2015

Hey sign this petition so we can let them know that people want this course

August 1, 2019

Yes, please!

May 3, 2016

Very interested, very excited.

June 14, 2015

I am extremely interested, my dads side of the family only speaks Thai and I can hardly communicate with them, it would be a blessing to be able to learn more easily.

October 18, 2016


November 13, 2018

Aside from the massive amount of culture and literature in the language, there are plenty of Thai work immigrants here in Israel working in agriculture mostly. It could be pretty useful...

July 4, 2016

any update on when Thai might be added? anything I can do to help? apart from become fluent in Thai and write it ; )

March 12, 2017

Would love to learn Thai, please bring this course out soon!

May 13, 2017


May 6, 2016


July 31, 2018

yes love to learn Thai

May 15, 2016

A lot of people really want to see Eng-->Thai added. What's going on with the Thai-->Eng course anyway? For months, they have been at 99%. But, they just keep pushing the completion date back.

July 2, 2016

OMG YES. Let's get a Thai course going! I'm traveling there next year, so it'll be really awesome to learn it here. Duolingo is the best.

August 6, 2016

ก็สนใจ, My family is from Thailand, too and I always listen to Thai music but I cannot speak the langage well. I have bought a school book that helps me a lot but I'm sure a Duolingo course would be more effective.

Thai is one of the Asian languages on my short list. Plus, the English for Thai course is quite advanced at around 90%, so I hope they will start the reverse course soon after it reaches beta.

I hope there will be some good lessons on the basics, like tones and the writing system, which could be difficult for most learners.

June 13, 2015

It's been a year now, still at 90%, ugh

August 18, 2016
  • 1722

Actually it's 99%, but we can probably expect that remaining 1% to take a few months.

August 18, 2016

At 99% completed 2 years ago? Where is it now?

October 22, 2018
  • 1263

It is now at 100%.

April 7, 2019

Interested :)

June 14, 2015

well, i have tried three times to learn Thai but I gave up. The grammar and alphabet are not hard but memorizing the thai vocabularies is a nightmare for me! However I love Thai language. Support this form!

March 22, 2017

In Duolingo is easier to learn

March 22, 2017

you are right

August 1, 2019

Please please please add Thai to duolingo

February 17, 2018

Yes please!!

June 14, 2016

I really badly want to learn Thai.I've looked on other sites as well but it would be great if it was available on here as well(I love to use Duolingo in combination with other ways of learning as well).

July 1, 2016

I love the Thai, the characters are so visually appealing. I've gotten the characters memorized using very loose resources from all around the web, and now I'm stuck at grammar stage, and final consonant stage, and I just need one resource to lay it all out well, and easy to memorize. I hope it comes out as soon as possible. :D

Definitely Yes!

May 7, 2017

I would love a Thai course, I lived there for 6 months and I'd like to improve my Thai and return, the people are lovely!

May 15, 2017

My grandpa is from Thailand, and a lot of my relatives still live there, so I would love to learn the language to better communicate with them as well as connect to my heritage. I feel like Duolingo has done such an amazing job designing other language courses, and that Thai would be a wonderful addition.

July 20, 2017

yes please, my girlfriend is thai and though she is trying to learn english, i am trying to learn thai..and duolingo is so good , as now i speak spanish and doing well in italian, i want to just consintrate on thai please.. thankyou

September 17, 2017

Yes please fo thai

September 18, 2017

Hi, Can someone from duolingo respond with an update on this? I've been waiting for two years since this post was originally created and it seems no progress has been made on this? I would like to try and learn thai before my brain looses the ability todo so. thanks sam

November 20, 2017

Hey sign this petition so we can let them know that people want this course

August 1, 2019

Yes, please! I've done volunteer work in Thailand since the beginning of 2014. Duolingo would be a fantastic way for me to move towards mastering Thai.

November 23, 2017

I would love thai! Please add it

January 13, 2018

A Thai course would be great! Any news on its progress?

January 22, 2018

I'd love to learn Thai!

February 12, 2018

Hey sign this petition so we can let them know that people want this course

August 1, 2019

I would absolutely love to learn Thai, especially here since the site is so well laid out and easy to learn from. I actually wanted to learn Thai here first since it applies to me because I have many Thai friends and I go there on holidays since I love the culture there. I only settled for German since I heard Thai was supposed to be released here relatively soon and I wanted to wait around until it was, but that was a while ago now...

February 20, 2018

I need that language

February 24, 2018

Hey sign this petition so we can let them know that people want this course

August 1, 2019

Yes! I really would like to learn Thai!

March 5, 2018

Thai is the prettiest southeast Asia language! Please, please, please we would love to learn it through Duolingo <3

March 6, 2018

I think it would be a huge enrichment.

There are 20.2 million native speaker, atleast 40 million L2 and Thai also belong to the Tai-Kadai languages which comprises about 80 million additional speakers (includes around 62 languages).

But these are just the numbers. The TH-ENG course is almost finished which could make it easier to get this ENG-TH going.

Interestingly the Thai alphabet was introduced in 1283 and hasn't really changed since(eg some letters are obsolete but still there) meaning one can easily read texts from around 700 years ago.

Thailand ranked 32 of 140 economies in the World Economic Forum's GCI.

So many wonderful and beautiful people living there.

It would just open many doors

April 20, 2016

The obsolete Thai characters are obsolete because the foreigner designing the first Thai Typewriter could not fit them all on so decided Thai didn't need a couple of the ones that sounded the same. Interesting and beautiful language

October 3, 2016

They never needed that many characters anyway, and there are still same-sounding ones. It's because the king who introduced the alphabet wanted to preserve 1-1 relation with sanskrit, from which the religious texts were translated.

More than interested in this course. Seeing Indonesian pop up on the list is exciting enough, but having Thai (and Mongolian) would put me over the moon!

I studied Thai speaking, reading and writing in Thailand for a while. I'd like to take it up again.

November 22, 2016


January 4, 2017

I really would love to have a Duolingo course for Thai. My stepmom and step-siblings all speak Thai. While they each speak English now, too, I would really like an organized way to learn about the Thai language. I would like to be able to share in that part of their culture. Hopefully this will be available soon.

January 21, 2017

Thai has been one of those languages that I've really wanted to learn, yet had difficulty finding a lot of resources on it. It would be amazing if Duolingo made this course.

January 28, 2017

I'd love to be able to talk to my aunts and uncles, or at least understand what my mum is saying behind my back

March 23, 2017

My fathers from Thailand but never taught us the language and I'd love to learn. Duolingo would help a lot if they could add the course.

March 25, 2017

Yes! It would be wonderful to learn my father's native language. My parents are from different countries and their only common language was English. I would be so thrilled to have a chance to learn Thai.

April 1, 2017

I've recently started learning to speak Thai but not to read or write yet. It's a beautiful sounding language and very different than anything else I can speak. It would be fantastic to have it on Duo.

April 15, 2017

The Thai script is quite beautiful too. It also makes it easier to learn the language than working with Romanised phonetics because they are only approximations and there is no consistency between the various Romanised phonetic systems. worth pursuing. I just bought some (very cheap) Thai children's books for practicing the letters.

April 15, 2017

Please add Thai language and i will be a incubator of this language!

January 2, 2018

Very :)

July 5, 2016

Hopefully it will happen after the English for Thai speakers course reaches into beta.

August 18, 2016

looking forward

September 22, 2016

I would light up inside at the chance to take Duolingo Thai. You know that you want to make my life complete

October 3, 2016

I'm definitely interested!! It's seems like a hard language to learn, but I'm willing to put in the effort!!

October 14, 2016


October 24, 2016

Yes please! I love duolingo and want to learn Thai using duolingo.

November 21, 2016

SUPER COOL, ON MY LIST OF LANGUAGES TO LEARN BEFORE I TURN 30 (yeah I know, that's a long time from now, but can't a guy dream) i think that would be amazing to learn such a language. Yes from me!

November 25, 2016

I am interested!

December 10, 2016

Yes please!

December 14, 2016


January 9, 2017

I would love to, I'll be waiting

January 9, 2017

I'm also interested!

January 14, 2017

Yes, please.

January 22, 2017

I AM. I would love it

February 17, 2017


March 8, 2017


February 12, 2018

I can read, decipher tones, and write fluently. Now, all I need, is a course that will teach me words and grammar points.

April 26, 2017

I hope we see English to Thai soon! It would make my future travel easier. The writing system and tones have been challenging for me to learn, and the Duolingo format would be a great help.

June 4, 2017

Asides from writing my own name I can't read or write in Thai and this would be so great at helping me learn. This would also help me better improve my speaking abilities in Thai since I've got a thick accent. Yay!

June 22, 2017

I'm moving to Thailand this year and would loooove a Duolingo course!

July 23, 2017

Very interested. I would use Duolingo a heck of a lot more if it had Thai.

July 24, 2017

Very much interested!!!!

August 24, 2017

I would really like to do this course

September 5, 2017

Yes please! Thai is such a beautiful language, I'm sure many would be interested in learning it!

September 27, 2017

I would love for Duolingo to add Thai. It's such a pretty language :)

October 4, 2017

Why does this have so few upvotes?

October 8, 2017

For me, it wasn’t easy to figure out how to get to this forum. Then, it took a while to figure out how to leave a comment. That might be one of the reasons.

February 7, 2018

Thai was the first language I ever sought to learn myself (as opposed to being taught in school). I have 3+ half-siblings who were born in Thailand and whom I have never met (my father and I are not close and he moved to Thailand from the US 12 years ago). I hope to travel to Thailand one day to meet my siblings and I want to be able to communicate with them in their native language.

October 13, 2017

I really hope they decide to add a Thai course for English speakers one day. I've been watching a lot of Thai tv dramas lately, and the language seems like such an interesting one to learn.

November 2, 2017

I can’t wait to get Thai!!!!! I also can’t wait to get it on Drops!

December 2, 2017

Please, would like to learn the Thai language.

December 21, 2017

I have wanted to learn Thai since 2003. Please make this beautiful language available.

February 7, 2018

Yes, I would love to learn Thai using Duolingo

February 24, 2018

Sorry everyone, but if you want to learn Thai right now, I recommended using Drops. It's avalible for free for IOS and Android users.

Download link for IOS:

Download link for Android:

Drops' official website:

Btw, as a native Thai speaker, I really wanted to see Thai course for English speaker in Duolingo!

April 17, 2018

Thanks for the tip. It looks great!

April 17, 2018

I bought a lifelong membership. I think it's really good.

April 23, 2018

Thanks for posting :-)

April 18, 2018

This is a good program. I just don’t like having to pay for it.

October 24, 2018

You can use it for something like ten minutes every ten hours for free.

October 25, 2018

Like I said in this thread two years ago, PLEASE add Thai when you get a chance. I know that means the internal team will probably have to figure out how to teach the Thai abugida and the tones. I get that's no small undertaking. The script can be presented like any other non-Latin script. Just don't romanize it. The tone rules can be presented through notes and tips (people will mainly pick it up on the fly anyway down the road). The rest can just be reversed from the English for Thai course.

But, however you do it, please let us have Thai when you get a chance to develop it! It's over 50 million speakers and much bigger than many languages already on Duo. Also, there are many English speakers with Thai spouses or relatives in the west or in Thailand who do not have any decent resources to learn the language. I've used Memrise and drops....they're great. But, we need Duo Thai!

September 17, 2018

I would love to learn Thai ! ขอให้ไทย!

June 11, 2016

yesyesyesyesyes most of my family speaks thai- aside from my parents. I would love to be able to communicate with my family better and perhaps visit my relatives in thailand! but because my mom doesn't know it, she can't teach me. I've been trying to learn it on my own (unsuccessfully), and i hope that duolingo would be able to help me learn thai, as it helped me learn (partial) french and get me started on Vietnamese! I reallyreallyreally hope that a thai course is added <333

July 21, 2016

I would love to learn this language because i would like to go to Thailand and speak the local language.

September 7, 2016

I definitely would love to learn Thai! It has been on the top of my list of languages to learn.

September 8, 2016


November 1, 2016

Thai is so beautiful and inspiring. I am trying to learn using other sources but it's tough. Please create a course for English speakers!

November 13, 2016

I would love to have a thai for english speakers on duolingo

December 5, 2016


December 7, 2016

I would love a Thai course on duolingo! Duolingo is my favorite app for learning language and I'm applying for a university in Chiang Mai so I want to start learning as soon as I can. Duolingo makes language fun and easy! Thank you to everyone helping make this happen!

January 24, 2017

I wonder how long is going to take to get this course

March 22, 2017

I want to learn how to speak Thail well from this page

March 24, 2017

yes, please!!! :)

April 23, 2017

I'd love to, it'd be a lot easier than how I'm currently trying to learn.

May 7, 2017

English for Thai learners is now available in beta. Hallelujah!

May 15, 2017

Really? You mean learn Thai with english translation?Omg

May 15, 2017

No. This is a course for people who speak Thai to learn English. This is usually a step toward getting a course for English learners to learn Thai though. Here's a lingot for getting your hopes up. Sorry!

May 25, 2017


May 16, 2017

Yes please

May 29, 2017

Or some of you have idea of some online resources to learn Thai?

July 3, 2017

To practice some of the alphabet, I like to use this site

July 3, 2017

Yes very much

August 20, 2017

I am

August 29, 2017

I sure am! I have been trying, but while learning Norwegian I discovered Duolingo. It would be the perfect tool for me to learn Thai.

September 16, 2017

Very very interested. Thailand is the country I most want to visit and I have realised from past experience to be able to fully experience the country you need to know at least some of the language. It's my dream to live there for a while, ugh I just really want Thai on Duolingo.

September 18, 2017


September 19, 2017

When ? And is someone going to confirm this or are we being ignored??

September 19, 2017

Here comes my vote!

October 30, 2017

Yes please!! สนใจด้วย จะชอบมาก !

November 3, 2017

Yes please

November 10, 2017

Is there any news or update on this ?

November 19, 2017

I would love that sooo much! Cambodian would also be a good addition!

December 5, 2017

So any news on the status of Thai for English speakers? I'm trying to learn and having it on duolingo would be a great help.

December 7, 2017

I really must add my "me too" here. There is nothing to compare with Duolingo. I have always been hopeless at languages, and hated studying them, yet I managed to hit 55% fluency in Italian after 50 days of study, and even had fun doing it! Oh, if only I could learn Thai here, I might at last begin to speak it!

December 8, 2017

Yes please; family will be there in 2018 and i’d Love to have some understanding and the basics please. I’ve loved the French course and tiny cards. Thank you so much.

December 10, 2017

Very interested in this if comes out in early 2018

February 24, 2018

Anyone have any idea when (if?) the Thai for English speakers course will be available?

March 4, 2018

The requests for Thai are rolling in, but there have not been any responses from Duolingo that I have seen.

March 5, 2018

I already finished the tree English for Thai people. But I really need the pronunciation (especially for Sanskrit words....)

March 6, 2018

Thai would be great but challenging. If I am not mistaken there are six tones or something like that. If it were released tomorrow it would be my next language

March 12, 2018

I really wish they would get Thai on Duolingo... it’s been 2 years and still nothing?

April 12, 2018

Yes! I am very eager to learn the language so that I can communicate, at least a little, with the people when I go there!

April 13, 2018

I want to learn Thai so bad no other learning app is as good as Duolingo

June 18, 2018

Please do it Duolingo!

June 23, 2018

Yes please!

I'm a Thai native. I've been using Duolingo for other languages and find it quite beneficial. I would instantly recommend it to expat friends living in Thailand who are trying to learn Thai if only they have a Thai version. I'd love to contribute to the effort if there's opportunity.

July 15, 2018

yes please!

August 16, 2018

I want to speak thai

September 16, 2018

I would like a Thai course, too. Currently, I'm learning it with Benjawan Becker's Thai for Beginners and flashcards in AnkiApp and on Quizlet, but it's really hard going.

October 8, 2016

I think Duolingo's grammar-based approach featuring multiple repetitions of similar sentences could really help people get over the first hurdle: the language just sounds so strange at first that it's difficult to memorize even simple phrases, names and the like.

October 14, 2016

Yes, I've been waiting and waiting.

December 27, 2016

Yes please.

February 6, 2018

We need Thai for English speakers, please!

July 18, 2018

Thai is such a beautiful language. I hope one day we have the pleasure to see it added to Duolingo.

July 20, 2018

Yes, I would love to learn Thai on Duolingo!!

July 31, 2018

Hell yes! Thailand is the most amazing country I've visited in my life. I wish to learn the language far more than the few phrases I know.

August 7, 2018


May 16, 2016

I'm Thai. I can help if anyone wants. I would love to make Thai course for English speakers to share my own language. XX

September 27, 2017
September 27, 2017

I would love to learn Thai. If Duolingo doesn’t make a Thai course, I will have to find another way to learn Thai.

February 7, 2018

Hey Terry, please let me know when you have found an easy way to learn some Thai. I need to learn that language, too. Thanks :-)

February 8, 2018

There are a couple of apps, but I wish Duolingo had a Thai course. I like Pimsleur, because it has you talking during the first lesson.

February 8, 2018

Thank you very much. I would love Duolingo have Thai, too. Even if the course will be developed, I think it will take a lot of time until it would be ready to be used. That is why I am looking for alternatives until I can jump on the Duolingo course ;-)

February 8, 2018

Drops is decent for Thai vocab for now.

September 17, 2018

I’m using the Drops app now.

October 24, 2018

Please apply to help author the Thai for English speakers on DuoLingo. Click on the link offered by johnwallaceone. Thank you.

October 24, 2018

i want to learn thai

May 17, 2018

Thai is a very under-rated language. It's quite interesting, but the spelling is hard to remember! I wish Duolingo had it too.

July 12, 2018

I'm definitely interested. Are there any plans to develop a Thai course on Duolingo?

October 30, 2018

Please add a Thai course, Duolingo!!

November 3, 2018

I re-downloaded the app recently and I was disappointed that they still don't have Thai course yet. I have only learned some basics via a Thai professor a few years back and I really want to learn more. Heck, I'm even interested in Lao, since they are somewhat similar.

November 16, 2018

I'm also interested in Lao. They're more than somewhat similar. Lao is easier to read and write. It's harder to hear what tones people are using. Grammar is almost identical except Lao has one extra word for "to be". Pronouns, politeness, and a percentage of vocabulary are different.

November 17, 2018

Lao is like really friendly thai <3

January 13, 2019

Sooo I was promped here because I have read step by step (actually just the first since the language I wanted to request was listed) the guide called "I WOULD LIKE A NEW COURSE: WHAT SHOULD I DO?" and I was wondering how long does it take for a vote like this to be taken into consideration...
I don't want to be fussy but seriously guys it has been three years since this topic (about the vote for the Thai language) was created and there's nothing at the horizon yet?

I just want to quote of the criteria one of the three criteria that Duolingo staff asks himself for the consideration of a new language (by the way this is the link):

1) How many people will benefit from this course?

Now, still being humble and not polemic, how many people in real life can benefit from Klingon, High Valyrian and other fictional languages available for learning here in the website? Wouldn't be better to add some interesting real languages?

By the way, one more huge vote for THAI language!

February 13, 2019

Can everyone that wants the Thai language offering click ^ for each of the posts here, please? Maybe, the increased activity here will get some attention from Duolingo. Thanks, everyone.

March 6, 2018

yes it would be great to learn this language as this is a beautiful country and holidaying or retirement would become more feasible

March 15, 2018

I want to go to thailand & it would be great to have a way to practice there are a lot of thai restaurants near me and I might be able to practice with the people there beforehand

March 28, 2018


May 12, 2018


May 14, 2018

Yes Yes Yes!!! Would be super diligent if Thai for English speakers is released. Please do soon?

May 17, 2018

i want to learn thai

May 17, 2018

I'm half thai and I want to learn. I'm travelling there this summer too

May 20, 2018

I am also interested in learning Thai. Is there an update when the course will be available?

May 22, 2018

+1 for Thai

May 31, 2018

I think it would be helpful because there are expats like me who teach english and then move to another country to teach and when duolingo doesn’t have the language I need of that new country, things are a bit complicated. I actually want to teach in thailand but since there are no good resources for it, I can’t move there. Hopefully they do decide to add it

June 7, 2018

There are lots of other resources for learning Thai. Why not use some of those, and then switch to Duolingo if and when they release a Thai course?

June 7, 2018

Because the other resources are crap and duolingo is working for years on thai-language with no result -.-

June 8, 2018

What resources are you referring to?

October 24, 2018

Please Duo make it happen soon

June 27, 2018

I would be very interested to learn Thai. It is my native but I live in England so I don't use it often. I need to revise my Thai.

July 6, 2018


July 8, 2018

Yes absolutely

July 10, 2018

Yes, please!

July 26, 2018

oh of course !

July 29, 2018

I am really excited about a English to Thai course. I lived a year in Thailand and would really like to learn more of the language. Unfortunately, Thai is not a common language that English speakers want to learn. I just hope that we can get it off the ground soon!

August 20, 2018

Yes please add Thai

If you are interested, I'm currently making a course about Thai tones on Memrise:

August 28, 2018

Wow.. this is 3 years ago!! I am def interested!

September 6, 2018

Yes, Duolingo definitely needs Thai!! I'm sure it would have far more learners than Vietnamese...

September 11, 2018

When will a Thai for English speakers be offered? It would, also, be nice to have an Issaan language course.

October 24, 2018

I'm an exchange student in Thailand and having a Thai lenguage course here on duolingo would make learning it much easier

October 28, 2018

I would like to learn Thai

June 25, 2016

Chai ❤❤❤❤! Thai Please!

January 29, 2018

Yes please!

May 25, 2018

Yes for Thai!

June 1, 2018

I'd love to have a Thai for English course on Duo to practice! I hope we will get to see it one day. :D

June 25, 2018

I really want to be able to talk to my friend in Thai, so it would be great if this could be one of Duolingo's new courses!

July 21, 2018

Yes I am very interested. I speak Thai and my children are interested in learning so they can communicate with relatives in Thailand.

August 1, 2018

Yes! Yes!!!

August 2, 2018

is there any info of them working on it?

August 7, 2018

extremely interested!

August 12, 2018

sooo interested!

August 12, 2018

Absolutely. It's one I've been wanting to learn for years but haven't found the resources

August 24, 2018

I am. Thai would be great.

August 26, 2018

I would love to learn Thai!!!

August 29, 2018

Yes please!!!

August 31, 2018

Yes! I am thai and am scared that I am going to forget thai once I leave Thailand (this has happened in the past)

October 17, 2018

Yes, please add Thai soon!

October 22, 2018

I'd love thai for english speakers!

November 23, 2018


November 24, 2018

i am interested.

December 1, 2018

Yes, I am very interested in Thai being added to Duolingo!

December 1, 2018

I'm very interested in learning Thai, yes!

December 8, 2018

Very interested in learning Thai!

December 13, 2018

I am interested in learning Thai on Duolingo

December 16, 2018

Yes I would love to learn Thai!

December 22, 2018

Yes! I would love to learn Thai on Duolingo.

December 29, 2018


January 5, 2019

Myself and two friends would like to learn!

January 12, 2019

Please add Thai for English speakers to learn, thanks:)

January 23, 2019

Any updates on Thai? I would totally pay the subscription to learn Thai

April 27, 2019

TOTALLY agree !!!

April 27, 2019

It’s honestly my favorite language to hear spoken. I watch dramas and even tech reviews in Thai. I already speak some Spanish and a little French but I would love to be able to speak Thai too!

November 19, 2018

[deactivated user]

    Definitely! I’ve always wanted to learn Thai. Someone needs to add it...

    January 13, 2019

    Add Thai. I used to speak some and would love to brush up and improve!

    January 13, 2019

    I have Thai-American friends! Make it happen!

    January 21, 2019

    I want to learn Thai. . . T - T
    I hope they make it for doulingo!

    January 23, 2019

    I've been waiting for this course since I first started learning with Duo five years ago, yet to no avail. Please, Duo, I need to improve my Thai! How can there be Esperanto, Klingon, and High Valeyrian but no Thai?!

    February 5, 2019

    I strongly agree...

    February 13, 2019

    More languages from ASEAN countries.

    February 15, 2019

    If they can add Klingon then why can't they add Thai? I know many people who speak Thai, and no one who speak Klingon!

    February 23, 2019

    There are more people in Thailand than in Italy. How long has Duolingo had Italian?

    July 10, 2019

    I made a poll and this is the most asked for language! Please, please, please!

    March 15, 2019

    Any updates on when this might release?

    November 8, 2018


    January 9, 2019


    January 14, 2019

    Another vote for Thai! <3

    January 30, 2019

    Duo needs more Southeast Asian languages, there's only Vietnamese and Indonesian on here. The English for Thai speakers course was completed years ago but the reverse tree hasn't been in the works as of February 2019. I was told the contributors are on a "break" but there is no word on when their break will end and when the next project will start.

    February 20, 2019

    I'd love to see Khmer here too, but I recognize that it would be less in demand than Thai, Vietnamese or Indonesian.

    March 8, 2019

    I sent a request to start thai for english in incubator, but there is no answer from developers of duolingo.

    April 8, 2019

    Besides just adding to the chorus of "..yes we want Thai.." Is there ANYTHING we can do to actually make this happen?

    May 5, 2019

    Still interested, almost two years waiting for this course. Even if it takes time, I'll wait for this course!

    July 22, 2019

    I'd like to see Thai for English. Please stop working on passing curiosities like Valerian or Klingon and work on this instead.

    October 6, 2018

    Hey, I would love to learn Thai here on Duolingo, but Valerian and Klingon have the same right to be here and it is good that it is possible to learn them here ;-P

    October 6, 2018

    As hippietrail mentioned above, it's unlikely that fulltime Duolingo staff are actually creating the High Valerian and Klingon courses, probably volunteers who want to create them and may have no knowledge of or interest in Thai. So the lack of Thai is probably unrelated to the presence of other languages.

    October 7, 2018


    October 9, 2018

    +1 Another up-vote for Thai. I've been in Thailand for 10 years and while my skills are OK, I definitely need some help getting to the 'next level', and regularising what I already know. PLEASE - Use Thai script. No transliterations - they never work - even if keyboard work is harder. ขอบคุณครับ

    December 26, 2018

    I'd love to learn Thai on here! I spent several years in Thailand in my childhood and really regret not learning more than a few phrases back then (and forgetting most of them since then). So I'm really hoping for a Thai from English course (I'd also take a Thai from German course, but hey, we all know that isn't going to happen any time soon... ;) )

    February 13, 2019

    [deactivated user]

      I’ve always wanted to learn Thai. Please make it happen. :(

      February 16, 2019

      I would love to see a Thai language course here.

      March 6, 2019

      PLEASE DO! I really want to learn this language. Thailand is an amazing country and I want to learn it's language. Please add this.

      April 4, 2019

      I started learning Thai in 2002 and still am not that good. This proposed course would be a good refresher for me.

      April 19, 2019

      Support for ภาษาไทย in 2020! สวัสดี!

      May 20, 2019

      Can't find any new info about Thai Duolingo for English speakers, I want to upgrade to Plus if it was added in, Duolingo please respond!

      May 21, 2019

      Meeeee tooooooo!! ...krup!

      May 22, 2019

      Add me to the list. Thai is actually the language I want most.

      May 29, 2019

      Me too, it on of the most interesting languages. I made a petition about it. Maybe we can make a difference.

      August 1, 2019

      I would really love Thai for English speakers so I can communicate with my Thai family better. My mother didn't have an interest in teaching me growing up. I think it would be a great addition. Kind of annoyed it was dropped out of lack of interest when some of us have been anxiously waiting for years for the course. I'm going to try to find in person lessons sometime in the next year or so but the search results in my area were pitiful the last time I looked into it.

      June 12, 2019

      Please, Please, Please, can we have an update on when to expect Thai?

      June 27, 2019

      Yes, please! I'd love to learn Thai.

      July 19, 2019

      yes still waiting for it

      July 23, 2019

      I would love to study Thai :D

      July 26, 2019

      Yes. I would like to see Thai on Duolingo.

      August 4, 2019

      Yes, Thai please

      August 6, 2019

      Thai is really necessary here, it is strange Duolingo doesn't have it yet

      August 15, 2019

      I can't wait for this course to come out! I am anxiously ready to take it once it goes through the incubator. I tried learning Thai with every resource available before spending a month in Bangkok and wished so much Duo had it! :-/ Fortunately, English for Thai speakers is nearing Beta so hopefully a reverse course will not be long in coming to the incubator. It will be a while, but it will be worth it!! ^_^

      June 14, 2015

      definitely, it's gotta be popular, there are so many tourists heading to Thailand every year, and the script is so pretty!

      July 4, 2016

      Yes! Thai ASAP!!!

      April 16, 2018

      If they can go through the effort of creating courses to learn Klingon and High Valerian, surely they create a Thai language course for English speakers! I have no figures but there are so many expats in Thailand, not to mention the millions of tourists that visit each year, and personally as someone who is of Thai and English heritage it would help me greatly in learning the language of my mother and family so I can better communicate with them when I visit.

      September 18, 2018

      They probably have some nerds voluntarily contributing the Klingon and High Valerian stuff so that it doesn't actually cost them anything.

      September 19, 2018

      I’m sure there would be more customers that would sign up to learn Thai than have signed up for a lot of the other language offerings.

      October 24, 2018

      I am. Please can they add it!

      October 2, 2018

      I made a change dot org petition about this. Every signature helps.

      August 1, 2019


      October 27, 2018

      February 20, 2019

      Adding my vote for this language!

      March 4, 2019

      As a Thai, I'll be more than happy to see my natie tongue included. Fingers crossed.

      March 21, 2019

      Adding my vote for Thai

      March 24, 2019

      Oh, please, please, I soooooo want to learn Thai and there don't seem to be ANY free language learning options for it.

      March 28, 2019

      I can't wait for THAI to enter the incubator.

      April 2, 2019

      SLA demand is high for a Thai for English course which I'm sure Duolingo is aware of. However, I'm not sure if they're aware of the nearly complete lack of supply. Rosetta dropped Thai several versions ago, Pimsleur is too inadequate, there are very few products in the retail market, and, to the best of my research, none of the OpenCourse contributing universities have any offerings. It's just mindboggling that Esperanto and Klingon are available but Thai isn't.

      April 4, 2019

      @DustinMajo - One possible source for someone acquainted with how the system here works, would be to start by adapting the easily available base materials. I refer in particular to the way too inadequately publicised, otherwise excellent Lyndon Hill material, which can be found at Using that, plus material from Poomsan Becker 1&2 and Higbie 'Essential' would be a very solid foundation for at least up to intermediate. I wouldn't presume to be at the standard to do that conversion myself - but it is a place to start.

      April 4, 2019

      I want to be able to talk to my mom, yes i want Thai

      April 16, 2019


      April 21, 2019

      i need thai

      April 24, 2019

      Yes, please! I want to visit Thailand next year and would love to be able to converse a bit! Plus - I watch so much Thai tv that it is about time I learn some :)

      May 9, 2019

      yes please

      May 15, 2019

      Still hoping for Thai on duolingo ;-)

      June 12, 2019

      June 12, 2019

      yes omg i watch thai dramas and i would love to have thai on here

      June 18, 2019

      Yes! It's been four years since this started, any updates?

      June 19, 2019

      I would also love to learn Thai here in Duolingo.

      Hope they have it by the I'm finished with Japanese

      July 3, 2019

      I have just discovered how beautiful Thai is as a language and I feel exactly the same way!

      July 28, 2019

      Yes please

      July 16, 2019

      yess i would love to learn thai

      July 22, 2019

      I am interested in learning Thai on Duolingo

      August 17, 2019

      Hey I think we need to @ them on twitter, some @ them and link it so we can all retweet it. Maybe that will jump start it.

      February 20, 2019

      It would be awesome to see one!

      March 5, 2019

      May 16, 2019

      สวัสดีครับ (Sawatdi Khrap = Hello in Thai (polite form for male speaker))

      I had already applied to be an incubator and volunteer for Thai language course for English speakers on July 29th (National Thai Language Day in Thailand)

      ...but maybe due to my application was sent just few days ago, so I don't got any feedback from Duolingo yet.

      In addition, although I'm the Thai native speaker...but the contribution for the course by only 1 person is TOO MUCH for me. So I would like the number of volunteers will be enough soon.

      ขอบคุณครับ (Khopkhun Khrap = Thank you in Thai (polite form for male speaker))

      July 31, 2019

      August 1, 2019

      Thank you for your comment. I wish that was your nice time & experience in Thailand.

      If you still interest Thai language, my suggested channel is "Learn Thai with ThaiPod101"

      Although you thought you don't good enough to contribute...but I require the opinion from foreign learner about What skill they want?

      For example, skill "Winter Olympic" in Duolingo Korean course, skill "Subculture & Olympics" in Duolingo Japanese course...So what kind of preferred skill in Thai course? (Tourism? Food? Religion? Slang? Regional language? etc?)

      ...or even checking English grammar in the course (I'm not good on it)

      August 1, 2019

      High Valyrian ... Check Klingon ... Check Navajo ... Check

      But the very popular tourist destination and country where many English speaking people reside ... nah, Duolingo won't make that one. How did High Valyrian get precedence over something like Thai language?

      August 6, 2019

      YES PLEASE!!!!

      September 15, 2019

      Yes please anybody make it happen!
