Which of these Indian Languages do you want to see on Duolingo?
I am an Indian who is fluent in the basics of Tamil and Hindi - I would like to learn more, as well as other Indian languages. Which of these Indian languages would you want to learn on Duolingo?
Hindi Tamil Telugu Bengali Punjabi Malayalam Gujarati Marathi Kannada
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.
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
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.
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.
Of the ones you listed, Marathi would be my first choice. I would also like to know some Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Bengali.
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.
Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Kannada. Hindi - Admin language in India. Tamil - Very old. Telugu - Widely spoken in India. Kannada - Another widely spoken Dravidian language.
Bengali and Kannada
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.
Definitely Gujarat Bengali, Marathi,Tamil and Punjabi. For Gujarati, I can be a contributor, too!
Hindi !!!!! (and Urdu ahaha but thats Paki, and very similar to Hindi)
actually, Urdu is not a Pakistani language it's Indian also (spoken in India too!) Like, I'm Indian, and I know Urdu! :)
lol yeah and because my parents know both languages Hindi and Urdu Fully! And they taught me when I was little! Hindi and Urdu are, both my first languages! ^-^ (well actually Hindi, is my first language we just know Urdu! :3
Im so jealous ahaha, I love Hindi (I know no Hindi, however I love it ahah) Also Bengali xD
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.
Hindi is already in the Incubator and should be available some during next year.
Hindi, and Urdu,(I already know them!) Ans Punjabi and maybe Marathi which I don't know! :D
learning Hindi and sanskrit from english, will be great. I need some review on these languages
I would love to see Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Bengali. Out of the ones listed, those are the ones I know more about and would love to see courses for them.
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.
All of them, but particularly (in order of wanting): 1. Hindi, 2. Bengali, 3. Gujarati 4. Tamil, and 5. Marathi. (:
(That was actually a longer list than I thought...)
Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, and Kannada are the languages that I'm most interested at the moment.
Hindi Hindi Hindi Hindi Hindi Hindi Hindi Hindi Hindi Hindi Hindi Hindi!!!!!!!
Thankfully Hindi is now here. I would love to learn (at least a little) Bengali, Punjabi and Malayalam. Sanskrit and Pali would make my dreams come true!^)
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.
