New Delhi: Duolingo, the online language education system launched its mobile app in Hindi on Monday in India. The aim behind this is that the natives can learn English and other languages with much more ease.

“In developing markets like India, learning English is crucial to people’s professional development and can double or triple their income potential. Our goal is to give everyone in India the best possible language education money can buy, but for free,” Duolingo’s cofounder and CEO, said in a statement.

The new app  has been completely customised for Hindi speakers.

Customizations include reducing the size of the app to reduce the amount of memory required to install it, removing the need to type in Hindi, improving the placement test experience to help people quickly determine their proficiency level and customizing the content to make it more appealing to Hindi speakers.

Indian speakers can learn English with Duolingo, while Indian natives who already speak English can choose from 16 other languages.

“Hindi is the most widely spoken language in the country, hence we are focused on Hindi speakers first, but we plan on launching the app in other languages as well,a¿ Awaneesh Verma, product head at Duolingo, said.

According to the Duolingo, it is the most downloaded education app worldwide for Android, iOS and Windows Phone devices.

The app has organically attracted over 110 million users worldwide learning languages for free, as well as earned prestigious awards from Google and Apple.(IANS)
