Hindi for English speakers

KananG1 The game is afoot! 2 days ago We are a team of 4 contributors now and have started working on the course. A good news: there's a good chance that this course might be able to get access to the new character type challenges (similar to the Japanese course), which would make teaching the script a lot more efficient. We will have to redo some of the skills teaching the script though, but it will be totally worth it. One choice that we had to make was whether to teach the standardized version of Hindi, which is used more often in literature and other written forms, or the spoken vernacular. We thought that when someone learns a language, the first thing they should be able to do is to communicate with speakers of that language. So we decided to prioritize teaching the words which are more popular in the spoken language. Although we might add the literary synonyms of those words later in the course, to add to vocabulary. The estimated completion date was updated by the previous contributors a long time ago and we have started just recently, so we would certainly need more time. We are planning as we go, so it wouldn't be possible to estimate a release date right away, but we would update it once we have a fair idea of how long it will take. Stay with us! :)

Czech for English speakers
