This course is wonderful, I have been unable to use it until now, but I need to start with the letters – I am very much a beginner where can I find the Hindi script to learn in an easy manner?
Thank you

Dear Nathan,

I just recently joined the courses offered by your website and I am very happy to be able to learn Hindi. However I am having a problem, in this lesson the hindi phrases are written in the hindi script. is it possible to write it in english also. I want to learn to speak Hi=ndi before writing and reading, I would like to be able to read the phrase in hindi written in english script.

Please help me if possible , I cannot read the hindi script.

Just a couple questions on this.  I listen to Pimslers Hindi and for “main street” it uses raj pat, saying street is pat.  Second question is that when learning directions – and I’m still learning that’s why I’m asking :-) – I’ve learned dahina or daei for right, like when you’re saying right turn.  You are using a different word below.  Just wondering why so I make sure I’m saying it right.



“Main Street” – मुख्य सड़क (muky sa-rdak)

रज पथ (raj path) – Royal Road

Right दाहिना (da-hi-naa)  or    दाएँ (daa-en)

Left बांया (baan-yaa)
