Duolingo has apparently already released "For Talking to Children" - I did not even know that this had been in the incubator!

Scottish Gaelic has been released, in beta. Looks pretty short (33 skill units) at present compared to most of the other languages.

I just started doing the Arabic course the other day. Is it just me or does the audio have a lot of pronunciation errors?

On the other hand, it shows that a lot of the Hebrew course's issues can be fixed. Both Hebrew and Arabic have optional vowel markings that are not used in normal life, but the Arabic course uses them completely at the beginning of the course so that you can unambiguously see how to pronounce each word. The Hebrew course doesn't use vowel markings at all so if you forget how a word is pronounced, you have to look it up.

Also, the Arabic course has full audio and Hebrew doesn't, although as I said, there seem to be a lot of pronunciation issues at the beginning of the course. It would be a huge improvement if full audio were possible for Hebrew as well.
