Any chance of Latin on Duolingo
I've been taking Latin this past school year and i've found it very helpful with my learning of French. Latin being the root of all romance languages, I believe Latin would be challenging but interesting to have on Duolingo. Who agrees?
I've also been taking Latin (for the past two years), and it has helped with trying to learn Spanish. I was wondering if they would put it up on here. Maybe they only do languages that are actually spoken? If not, it would be great to contribute to putting Latin on here.
I agree, it would be very interesting and useful. If you know Latin well or know someone that does, you can apply to contribute for a Latin course.
Latin is the language I have seen most requested in the fora along with Japanese, Arabic and Finnish.
Of those languages only Latin and Finnish have not even entered the incubator (Japanese and Arabic have a reverse course)
edit: please add latin
Latin may not be in the Incubator because not enough people have offered to do the course. In the Incubator application you have to write a paragraph on why you want to be part of creating the course, then you have to translate your paragraph into the language you will be teaching to show that you are bilingual. Maybe several applications weren't translated accurately so there isn't anyone to create the course.
I've been taking Latin ever since I was a child, by the time I enter my senior year in high school I will be able to translate books in that beautiful language. No joke!
If anyone knows someone fluent in Latin, you should recommend that they start an incubator course for it.
because Latin is a dead language it is not spoken, but is still greatly used.

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
