Hindi Expansion Please!

After starting a few other language courses, I noticed the Hindi course was a lot shorter. I am disappointed about that. Learning Hindi as a solely English speaker is very difficult, and this is the most helpful tool I've tried. I would love if this course could continue on to get even more complex. I also would love to see more bonus lessons like some other courses have, and even having an area to practice Hindi with native speakers.

I apologize if any if this is redundant, I haven't seen anything posted about this. I guess I'm mostly wondering if there are any plans to continue expanding on this course.

Try English for Hindi speakers. It may be better.

I agree completely with you. I think it's likely that there will be a new version of the Hindi course here but I'm afraid it may take a while. You can use other resources, there are some available online. I use for example this one:
https://taj.oasis.unc.edu/lessons.html
It contains videos with dialogues, which can improve your listening skills. The website contains a script for every lesson together with grammar explanations, vocabulary and other things.

This website seems also good:
http://www.nyu.edu/gsas/dept/mideast/hindi/stories.html
I haven't used it that much but you can practice reading and listening through stories. We don't have Hindi stories on Duolingo so that website is something that comes close.

Also this one:
https://www.learning-hindi.com/
I actually used this website many years ago before Hindi came to Duolingo. It's quite good, unfortunately I think it's no longer updated.

The Hindi course desperately needs an expansion as the number of people learning it on Duolingo has just hit 1 million. With these numbers, a tree extension and fixing of errors in the course is highly likely to be considered by contributors.

I would like that too. But in the meantime, try the reverse tree. I do too, and you learn a lot of new things. Or use other resources, such as: https://www.hindipod101.com I am using this for Hebrew and it is a great addition.
