@rafn-ágúst-ragnarsson I agree, have you already tried memrise though? I don't think it will take you any further than Duolingo, but it is new material, and the natural voice gives you great examples of the tones and emphasis in Swedish, instead of the bad TTS used by Duolingo.

@alex-zorach I couldn't agree more. If they would add Italian and Japanese (at least for English speakers), they'd kill off the competition.

Is there any effort to add any more languages?
I have been somewhat disheartened by the fact that I've been using Lingvist for about a year and I haven't seen any sign of progress towards adding new languages. I'm getting pretty close to exhausting the three languages I want to learn (Spanish, German, and Russian), and I estimate I'm only going to find the site useful for around 6 months longer.
I think Lingvist is such an incredible tool, way ahead of Duolingo and Lingodeer and other free apps and websites for language learning. I would really strongly prefer to use Lingvist to learn other languages, and it's frustrating to not see any progress towards adding other languages (incl. Mandarin Chinese, Hindi, Portuguese, and Japanese) that I want to learn.

English to Chinese (Simplified + Traditional).
Traditional Chinese means that the characters are traditional, instead of simplified which is used now in Mainland China. When learning Chinese it is for sure a good idea to learn the traditional form too, as some simplified substitute more than one traditional characters. Traditional characters are also a very important and beautiful part of the cultural heritage and it is best to learn them with the simplified forms.
My recommendation is to have both simplified and traditional versions on the screen in the Linguist.
A short moderational note to @petrovandrew228: As you see, we have a thread where users can wish for new courses at LingVist. I appended your wish to that thread

@kiveli-papadopoulou They really need to add Italian. It makes sense since they already have French and Spanish.
@lisa-lingvist Italian for English speakers please! You've helped me enormously with French, so as soon as you add Italian to your list I'll buy Lingvist Unlimited again! Thank you for everything

English or German to Portuguese, please, but not Brazilian, only portugues europeu.
Why not both? I am learning BR.
I would be very satisfied with any Portuguese variant.
Audio for PT-EN should be playable as a workaround as Portuguese, not English!!
Isn't it for your developer team much easier to create forward courses like EN-PT from already existing PT-EN reverse courses?
Is there any workaround for PT-EN with not having to waste too much time and developer resources to play this Portuguese audio?
What does all this voting in this thread help here if you would have to create a new language course completely from scratch vs using those available courses and just switch the direction?
How does it work technically to build a new EN-PT course from the existing PT-EN course?
Sorry, I am really more into learning Portuguese than Spanish right now.
My original plan is to continue with Portuguese for this and probably also next year and once I learned some Spanish fundamentals on DuoLingo, Memrise, Mondly, etc. to return to Lingvist for Spanish....
Viele Grüße aus Deutschland

Persian and Italian for English speakers.
I have a feeling that it's better to keep it one way( "any language" for "English speakers") otherwise it will be so hard for those who "work@Lingvist" to make all the courses.
thank you for all the hard work.

A Swedish course would be amazing since there aren’t really a lot of resources available and Duolingo alone won’t do me much good.

My vote would be Dutch to French as I am learning now English to French but I am Dutch. Dutch to French would be super.

My vote would be to English to Greek
Also, have you ever considered ancient languages? Ancient Greek, Latin, Sanskrit...
We used to have Arabic but we discontinued the course for a combination of business and technical reasons.

Hi, is there any update on the language choices for 2018? Any chance that Arabic will be on there? It would be a life-changer for me.
