I am not sure whether whether it is really possible to learn the 'real Hindi'. However, to learn what we call as 'Hindi' watching lot of Bollywood movies and practicing the dialogues will help for sure.
I don't want to learn the real Hindi, I've heard it has got some 8 papers. I just want to learn the spoken Hindi for communication. I think I should start watching more Hindi movies.

I can speak 'normal' (not so filmy) Hindi, thanks to Kendriya Vidyalaya Influence(I went there for 1 year) I could speak decent hindi before also, but perfected my language in KV. I got a good base in Skt. also in KV.

Well, I am not too much into learning new languages. Anyway, I can read as well as speak fluently in Hindi and English only. I can understand a bit of Marathi (and read it as well), Gujarati (though I don't understand most of it) and know some basic stuff in Spanish. That's it.

I can read,write and talk fluently in English and Tamil.
I can read Hindi and French little bit,as they were my third language in school.
Hindi was from 2nd till 7th standard,and French was in 11th till 12th.I hardly remember them as i never used to speak in Hindi or in French.
