“Where?”  or rather, “कहाँ” in Hindi.  This is an essential question word that all visitors to Hindi need to know and know how to use.  “Where is the bathroom?” can be one of the most useful and urgent requests in any language.  It might also be useful to be able to say, “Where is the hotel?”  “Where are you from?” and many other “where” questions.  In this lesson many examples of sentences using “Where?” are demonstrated.  After going through this lesson try creating some additional questions on your own using the word कहाँ (Where?).
