Course Update - September 13, 2018

नमस्ते !

By way of introduction, I am one of the course contributors and forum moderators and I hope you all are enjoying the course.

As an update, we have been working to resolve the reported errors and have managed to address issues in the first 20 out of the 33 skills available now (i.e. over 60% of the course). We are taking note of common mistakes made by learners and will continue to work on the remaining skills in the weeks ahead so that we can explain concepts better in the next version of the tree.

A course graduates from beta once the number of reports stays below 1 per 100 sessions for three consecutive weeks, therefore, we will resolve the issues as soon as possible. Meanwhile, we appreciate your patience and welcome any constructive feedback, hints and suggestions to improve your learning experience.

आपका दिन अच्छा हो :)

Thank you so much for creating this course! I've enjoyed it very much and I'm looking forward to learning more Hindi :)
Here are my notes after finishing the course: (https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/28804096)
I hope those can help you in any way...

Thank you very much for the work you put into this course! If not for it, I would have never started Hindi, as it seemed "too complicated" for me to learn. Your course proved me otherwise - thank you for that! :)

I really like the Hindi course. There are very few online resources for that language, which is strange considering the number of native speakers. Even though the current tree is quite short, it gives all the necessary basics of the Hindi grammar. I am looking forward to the new version of the tree. Good luck!

Thanks for creating the course. I'm still learning the alphabet at this time but enjoying doing so. I'm looking forward to continuing with it and I probably wouldn't have started learning Hindi if it weren't for the duolingo course.

I will also leave my previous comments about the well-done first version of the tree and my thoughts (along with others that replied). It was a great roll-out in my opinion. Thanks! धन्यवाद!

Hi, when will you be adding common phrases for things like "hello, how are you?" This should be an initial lesson, much like in the German and Italian courses I've taken.

Learning the difference between boy and man is helpful, but learning how to say "my son does not go to school" doesn't help for conversational learning.

Thank you so much for the course, it is really enjoyable.

The one extra thing I would find really helpful would be a list of the new vocabulary for each of the skills - and particularly if if could be put in a flash card programme like duolingo tiny cards.

I find remembering some of the words harder than the grammar points - so having a way just to go through the vocabulary alongside the duolingo course would be really helpful!

Great!

I have put the vocab for as far as i have got into memrise at: http://www.memrise.com/course/2053891/

This is useful for me (and maybe for others too). But doesn’t have all the words, audio and probably has some typos in... so some sort of official version would be amazing!

First of all, thanks for the course. As some people already stated, it's quite hard to find Hindi courses, and it's definitely the only way to make it available to my mountains! I would also have to learn Kannada, as my girlfriend is from this region, and the problem is even worse! But I see some fancy courses (Navajo or Haitian, for example), the opportunity to spread rare languages over the world seems to have been seen. A big suggestion I would make would be to adapt this course to Urdu, as Hindi and Urdu are basically the same language but with another alphabet (a Pakistani colleague already gave me some kind of vocabulary that will never be in any tree). Ideally, the course in two versions with an add on for the other alphabet, that can be done after finishing the course or by native speakers: I sincerely believe there is a need of communication between both countries! Otherwise, for next April the first, will you create a "head shaking language" course?
