Several months ago, I did a few language test drives for languages that are available on Duolingo. Since then, there have been several new languages, though three of them use different alphabets. I’m thinking about doing some more language test drives, but I want your opinion.
It’s not easy to choose a language, especially when they’re significantly different than English. So, please vote for which language you’d like to see me attempt first.
Ukrainian and Russian use the Cyrillic alphabet, while Hebrew uses the Hebrew alphabet. Surprisingly Vietnamese uses the Roman alphabet, as does Hungarian.
Let me know which one you voted for a why in the comments below. Thanks!
I’ve been getting back into studying at Duolingo again, and there are some languages that are coming soon.
First up is Vietnamese. It’s coming tomorrow! I’m really interested in seeing what that’s like. It’s the first southeast Asian language that’ll be available.
Next is one I’m quite interested in, and that’s Greek. It’ll be available in Beta next month! I want to learn that language.
Also coming soon is Hungarian, and soon after that should be Hebrew and Swahili in summer. Hindi will be coming, as well. But then there’s Klingon. It’s been very quiet for a while, but recently started back up again, and they think it’ll be ready this summer.
Korean was added to the incubator, which means it’s in development. But upcoming are some south Asian languages, like Bengali and Tamil. Those will be interesting. However, many people want Finnish, Japanese, Latin, and Arabic. And there’s news that some native American languages will start this year. I wonder what they’ll be.
What are you looking forward to?
