Hindi Incubator Update
I've been following the progress of this project for years, like many other people! It's been so frustrating to see Duolingo release courses for fictional languages like High Valyrian and Klingon while a language spoken by a billion people gets practically no institutional support, so thank you for working so hard on this for such a long time. I'd love to be included in the alpha test!
a discussion will come out with a link to apply, keep following the discussion :)
Drew, where is the discussion you created on how the testing works? Is it this one where we are discussing or did you create a separate one?
Would love to alpha test for Hindi. I’ve been waiting for more than a year for this moment!
Definitely interested in alpha testing this as well. I've been watching this one for years and it's kinda funny to think it is almost here... I'm very interested to see the ways they've suggested they are using the "character" matching exercises to help teach Devanagari. I really hope they do the compound consonants. I use Devanagari daily with Nepali, but in Nepali they don't use the special characters for compound consonants that much, so I'm always fighting atrophy on that front...
I'd be so so happy to alpha test!! I've been waiting for this course for literally years, I'm so excited!!
I've been waiting for years for this course too. I would really like to help alpha testing
Another enthusiastic volunteer for Alpha-testing here! I've been eagerly following Hindi's progress from the beginning.
I would love to alpha test, I've been waiting for this for a couple years! How do I apply to be a tester?
I would love to alpha test! I've been waiting for over a year since, I'm surrounded by people who know Hindi (I'm Indian-American) but I've never learned the language myself.
Thanks for the link! I would like to participate since I am waiting for the Hindi course since 2016!
Would love to be Able to test out the alpha as my partner I am with is Hindi speaking and I have been struggling to find something help me learn Hindi the best and most helpful way so far.
Great news - I've been looking forward to this course for awhile! I would love to be an alpha tester if you need people
This is awesome to hear! Been interested in this course since I first heard about it two years ago! Count me in for alpha testing if you're looking for testers
Would love to alpha test! My boyfriend is a native Hindi speaker so I've been waiting for this to help me learn.
Like many other friends here, I would also like to be a part of Alpha Testing if possible
I would love to test alpha too! It looks like there is no shortage of alpha testers which is wonderful. yay!!!!
I would be really happy to be a part of alpha test ! I need something to help me while I am studying here in India.
Like everyone else here I would very much like to get in on the alpha testing.
I am so very excited about the upcoming release! I have waited years for Duolingo to have Hindi, and now thanks to some wonderful volunteers, we're almost there! Nothing would please me more than to contribute by becoming an alpha tester. I am traveling to India later this year and am very motivated to start learning Hindi soon.
Count me in for Alpha testing :)
I've been working with an Indian contracting company for the best part of a year. Really excited to converse in their national language (Marathi is their mother tongue - not holding up a lot of hope for that one :( )
I'm in :)
