Maybe you've been watching Star Trek with Klingon subtitles, or maybe you've just always wanted to learn the complex language, but no matter what the reason, we've got some good news for you: There's now a new, easy way to learn Klingon.
Klingon has been around for decades, and even though there's a Klingon dictionary, opera, and even the Klingon Language Institute, it's not the most accessible language to learn to speak. It's intimidating to learn any new language, let alone an alien language. But have no fear, Duolingo for Klingon is here.
Duolingo is an online resource and mobile application used by people all around the world to learn new languages in a fun and simple way in just minutes a day. But now the program is branching out into the galaxy with a new course teaching users Klingon. Starting at as little as 5 minutes a day, Star Trek fans (or those who just want to test their language abilities) can now learn how to speak Klingon. And did we mention it's free? What have you got to lose?
With the help of a few experts, Duolingo put together a course that will help you learn the alphabet, common phrases, verbs, and basically everything you need to know in order to communicate in Klingon using an interactive approach. So not only will you have fun, but you can also probably convince a few friends to join in as well, right?
If you're looking to practice your Klingon skills with a fellow human, Duolingo is hosting a meet-up in Chicago on March 22. So polish up those skills, and hopefully you'll find Qapla' (success) in your new training.
