With HBOs House of the Dragon will debut in a little over a month, you would be hard pressed to beat your High Valyrian in time for the premiere by trying to watch it all Game of Thrones. Sure, some will try, but for those looking for a less time-consuming way to learn the fictional language or brush up on their skills, Duolingo has an alternative.

Just in time for House of the DragonAt the launch of Duolingo, Duolingo is expanding its High Valyrian course with 150 new words developed in collaboration with David J. Peterson, the fantasy linguist who helped design the language for HBOs Game of Thrones and House of the Dragon. Duolingo’s comprehensive High Valyrian course also includes over 700 new phrases directly related to House of the Dragon, and the company will begin rolling out a series of ads in the US using the language intended to test people’s skills.

Unlike in Game of Throneswhere Daenerys Targaryen was one of the last living people to speak High Valyrian fluently, the language is very much alive in the time of House of the Dragon – a prequel series set 200 years in the past before the fall of House Targaryen. While High Valyrian was everywhere Game of Thrones at some pivotal moments, Peterson said that: the language is much more common in House of the Dragon‘s first season, and he hopes to expand it even further when the show is eventually renewed.

While House of the Dragon will not premiere until August 21, 2022, Duolingo’s extended course is available now.
