It would be great, if another language to learn on Duolingo was Latin, I would really appreciate it
I don't get why this has anything to do with Klingon (which is an awesome language) but I REALLY agree that Latin would be a perfect addition to Duolingo since, as someone who wants to go to graduate school for Medieval Studies, Latin is practically a requirement that I wish I could teach myself!
With the right resources, you could teach Latin to yourself. I found the Teach Yourself Latin book by Gavin Betts to be nearly ideal; I have the first edition, but the fourth edition was published a couple of years before his death. There are out-of-copyright (published before 1923) Latin books available on the Web if budgeting for books is an issue.
As many threads as I've seen about Latin vs Klingon, I just can't believe this is an actual controversy.
Can reasonable people not be interested in Klingon? Sure.
Can people want to learn Latin for some reason? Why not, I guess.
Is there any actual, real world, dispute involving learning Klingon vs learning Latin? I just can't believe it, and I've tried.
Have there been a whole bunch of threads about the specific beef of Latin vs Klingon on duolingo, guaranteed not to result in Klingon being discarded in favor of Latin? Sadly, yes.
Official, yes. I hear even the Vatican often produces documents in Italian first, and then translates them to Latin. There are millions of people in other countries who have studied Latin--and even some who can read and write it! I tried a course on another website, but had to give it up because it could not deal with the flexible word order in Latin. It marked "Ego amo te" (I love you) as wrong.

As you may see there is quite a lot of support for latin already on Duolingo so it might just happen. https://www.duolingo.com/comment/10492595 https://www.duolingo.com/comment/9143362 https://www.duolingo.com/comment/9699611 https://www.duolingo.com/comment/10413206 https://www.duolingo.com/comment/9569703 https://www.duolingo.com/comment/9537069 https://www.duolingo.com/comment/9459059
