Star Trek fans, or really anyone, can now learn a fictional language through Duolingo's Klingon course. The course is currently free on Duolingo's website, and will be made available for iOS and Android apps at a later date. The course is fully licensed CBS consumer products and created by a team of Klingon speaking volunteers. This is not the first conlang that Duolingo has a course for as the service also offers classes in both Esperanto and High Valyrian from the Game of Thrones series.

The development of Duolingo's Klingon course was lead by Felix Malmenbeck, who is a fluent Klingon speaker, and was executed by a team of volunteers. Building the all-volunteer team was not an easy endeavor as it took some time to find Klingon experts who could commit the time and effort in creating the course. The platform also had to be tweaked for Duolingo's Klingon course as the language features several quirks that do not appear in any other languages.
