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.

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 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.

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.

    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.

    Never, I repeat NEVER compare Sanskrit with Latin!!!

    January 28, 2018

    https://www.duolingo.com/joshi2dec

    no, it is not, Sanskrit is one of the indo-european languages

    April 9, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/TseDanylo

    Sorry, what I meant was that it is similar to Latin in Europe in the way that there is a large area of languages descended from it

    But only for Indian languages like Marathi, Bengali, Assamese, Gujarati, Rajasthani. But all south Indian are not derived from Sanskrit.

    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.

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

    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.
