Want to Learn Klingon? There's an App for That. (Soon.)

I’ve mentioned the language learning app Duolingo before on Pajiba (I think one day when someone foolishly gave me control of Pajiba Love) but at the time they only had a handful of languages available. Now, they’ve expanded to 11 languages offered and another nine in development. One of the languages in development, alongside Hebrew and Vietnamese, is Klingon.

In this piece on NPR, Gina Gotthilf of Duolingo says that it’s always been a goal of theirs to collect all languages, including dead, dying, or fictional languages. Klingon is a good stater for them as far as fictional languages go, as it’s written using the Roman alphabet which is used by all languages currently offered in the app.

As far as the next fictional language that’s only a click away? Apparently there’s a strong push for Dothraki. Personally, I think Valyrian sounds more interesting, but I should probably just finish learning Spanish first.
