Marathi please

My friend has Duolingo and he really wants to learn Marathi because of his Indian heritage. I would like it if there was a course because I'm interested in learning the language too! I'm also sure this would also help other Duolingo users who are interested in Indian culture or travelling to India, and want to learn some more regional and local languages other than Hindustani (Hindi/Urdu). So, if any multilinguals who speak both English and Marathi see this post, please consider suggesting (or even making) a course. And to all the learners, share your thoughts and keep on learning!

I doubt we'll see any other Indo-Aryan languages until at least the Hindi course is complete, and that is still several months away. But I echo your desire for Marathi once Duolingo is ready for it. :D

Yes please! Half of my family speaks marathi and I never had the chance to learn. I love duolingo and would like to suprise them when I go to visit that I actually know what they are saying! :)))

Marathi is an important language in India, spoken by about 90 million people (L1 and L2). Maharashtra being a hub for immigrants from other parts of the country, recieves a lot of people looking for jobs every year. In addition to this, Marathi is also spoken in Goa and in some other neighbouring states and Union Territories. Interestingly, Judeo-Marathi is spoken by some communities in Israel, who migrated there from the Konkan coast in India.

I have applied for contributing to the course in Marathi. Interested people, please click here to apply :

As a language enthusiast, I'd love to have Marathi on Duolingo. Considering how widely it is spoken and written, it is worth learning.

I would love to see Marathi on Duolingo. I can't speak to my boyfriend's mom and Duolingo would make my learning journey so much easier. There are so few resources out there for Marathi.

I’m curious to see the differences between it and Hindi. Also, Mumbai is a good enough reason.

If I'm not wrong, Hindi is more influenced by Persian, Arabic and Turkic languages.
