Add a Tagalog Course for English Speakers on Duolingo

We all know that Duolingo has a lot of languages that you could learn. 

They have most of the most used languages in the world. 

However, they do not have a Tagalog course. 

Tagalog is the language spoken in the Philippines and millions of Filipinos across the world. 

The language has 20 million native speakers,

and 40 - 50 million speak it as their second language. 

Duolingo made a whole course for a FICTIONAL language ( High Valyrian from Game of Thrones ) before a language that is actually spoken in real life by millions.  Now don't get me wrong, I love Game of Thrones, and I love that Duolingo does have a course on it, I just wish that they'd make courses for real languages before they start making fictional language courses. 

There are people that are willing to volunteer to work on the course, but the language still isn't in the incubator for some unknown reason. 

Tagalog as a language is difficult to learn, especially if you don't have any help, the language is even more difficult when there aren't any effective free lessons online. 

Imagine how easier it'll be to learn it when Duolingo finally makes a Tagalog course, then you can finally talk to your Filipino friends and if you are Filipino, then you can finally talk to your family and not feel left out anymore, that's why I want a Tagalog course on Duolingo.
