Duolingo has hundreds of millions of users across its apps. It is the premier language learning software available on mobile devices; yet it is missing something. It only teaches Brazilian Portuguese. We need European Portuguese as a course option on Duolingo, and this petition is to help that happen! 

Nothing against Brazil (its a great country with a beautiful dialect!) but it isn’t European Portuguese. Learning the Brazilian dialect will not help you as much on your travels to Lisbon, Porto, etc. as the European dialect would.  I started this petition because we need European Portuguese dialect available on Duolingo’s easy to use, widely available, free platform, as there are so few ways to learn the dialect elsewhere. 

I know I am not alone. Many people appreciate the beauty and heritage of the European dialect, for many it is the dialect of their ancestors, and it is the native tongue of over 10 million people in Portugal, the official language of multiple countries in Africa, and the language of historical records of major eras like the Age of Navigation. Join me in asking Duolingo and it’s CEO to give this dialect/language a full course on Duolingo’s free app, to preserve this beautiful tongue for future generations of Lusophonic speakers! Thanks for signing, together we can do this and expand free learning of European Portuguese to millions of people!
