How are you progressing in Hindi?
I have finished the course, and wonder if anyone else has.
What can we do to progress in Hindi in the absence of stories?
Grammar, vocabulary. speaking, writing...how can we improve after finishing the course?
I've nearly finished the Hindi course. I also use the following books: Teach Yourself: Get Started in Hindi (comes with audio) Teach Yourself: Complete Hindi (comes with audio) Elementary Hindi & Workbook published by Tuttle (comes with audio) Practice Makes Perfect: Basic Hindi Hindi Grammar by David James Young Hindi: An Essential Grammar by Rama Kant Agnihotri Hindi for Non-Hindi Speaking People by Kavita Kumar
Also: Hindi Flashcards published by Tuttle
Also Hindi films & news channels are useful, as are Bollywood songs - plenty of them on YouTube.
I hope some of that may be useful for you. It would be great to have stories in Hindi on Duolingo!
I've ordered one of the Hindi books from Amazon that seems to be pretty well-respected, and I've been trying to watch more videos in Hindi for immersion. Eventually I'd like to get some of my coworkers to talk to me in Hindi, but I'm a little shy about asking. Cooking videos are my favorite so far, because it's pretty easy to pick up new words from context, and, in theory, I get to learn how to cook delicious food. :)
