Oh my god, all of them. I'm Indian and I have family who speak Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada so it'd be awesome to be able to talk to them without my parents translating. (YES my parents know all of those and MORE, it's really not fair that they didn't try and teach me) And I'd love to learn the rest. Someone also suggested Sanskrit which I vote for too.

i have actually submitted my name to contribute to Gujarati (from English) course There just isn't enough people yet with me to make it happen unfortunately

I would like Gujarati to be added, please.

My mother in law and father in law are Gujarati and speak barely comprehensible English, as it was not a school subject in their youth. I am not able to communicate with my family and I would like so much to be able to do so.

Additionally, Marathi then Punjabi.

Being a native Gujarati speaker, I actually really really wanna make it happen for a long time now. i have actually submitted my name to contribute to Gujarati (from English) course.

There just isn't enough people yet with me to make it happen unfortunately.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SMKBhatt

Definitely Gujarat Bengali, Marathi,Tamil and Punjabi. For Gujarati, I can be a contributor, too!

I think that Sanskrit would be quite an amazing language to learn. It would help those who wish to read the Hindu scriptures clearly without the concern of mis-translation.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mimercha

Oh I love the idea of reviving old languages that people are constantly trying to translate. Instead of Klingon, let's do Sanskrit, Poli/Magadhan, old Arabic and old English! :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SanyaDedhia

It’s Gujarati


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KeshavRamesh1

Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Bengali


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DragonPolyglot

Of the ones you listed, Marathi would be my first choice. I would also like to know some Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Bengali.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Stardecki

Tamil, Punjabi, and Marathi


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Arceleus

I am surprised no one mentioned Oriya or Assamese. The good thing about these 2 languages is that it's very closely related to Bengali so someone who knows Bengali or is learning the language can easily pick up on these 2.

Marathi!!!! Those who want Marathi to be introduced, pls, upvote/follow this discussion-

Thank you!! :)

All of the above - and Sanskrit


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TseDanylo

Yes! Sanskrit is like the Latin of the Indian subcontinent!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/psionpete

Hindi is already in the Incubator and should be available some during next year.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Navya_Gupta

learning Hindi and sanskrit from english, will be great. I need some review on these languages


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KeshavRamesh1

Even though the Hindi course is scheduled for release on January 26th, 2017, I feel as though it won't release on that date. I'd be surprised if it released in 2017, based on its "progress" so far.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DannySlewe

Indeed and based on the update frequency and that they don't seem to let other people in it could be years away.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/garpike

Lepcha, Sikkimese and Ladakhi. I'll learn anything that gets made, however; I do hope we get Tamil for English in the not-too-distant future.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/0000666ttt

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Erik_Pedersen

    We now have the Hindi course, and Hindi has much in common with Punjabi, Gujarati and Marathi. It would be wonderful to also have Bengali, Sanskrit and Tamil. Bengali is on the list of top-ten languages with the most speakers and is significant for mediæval Vaishnava texts like the Caitanya-caritamṛta, composed in that language; Sanskrit is extremely important for its continuous use over millennia for composing scriptural texts important to Hindus and, to a lesser extent, Buddhists, and is still a source for new loan-words in Hindi; and Tamil is closely related to Old Tamil, the parent language of modern Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada and Telugu.
