Marathi

I have checked the India tag but did not see something like this, but apologies if this is a duplicate. Also apologies if my focus is too narrow.

Does anyone have advice for learning Indian languages, specifically Marathi? I speak English and to a considerable degree, French, and a smattering of others, but nothing close to Hindi or similar languages to assist. I have found a few blogs that I will study, and some confusing apps, but I'd appreciate any input or suggestions as to resources. I'm considering studying Hindi (in addition to just mooching its resources) to help but I would prefer to focus on Marathi if possible, so looking for Marathi advice especially.

More generally, Has anyone learned an Indian language to conversational competency for the first time as an adult? How would you suggest going about it? Tales of success would be comforting. :) Thanks!
