Duolingo now teaches Hindi to English speakers

Duolingo, the freemium language learning platform, has just released a new module for English speakers to learn Hindi.

The course that has been in a year of development was launched on Duolingo’s website today, with the android and iOS versions slated to arrive soon.

The module teaches conversational Hindi rather than the standardized format used in official communication.

“Our choice of vocabulary is common Hindi-Urdu words, for example: we chose ज़्यादा (zyada) over अधिक (adhik) as the main translation for ‘more’.” said Kanan Gupta, the lead creator of the course.
