I want to visit India.  And I am sure you want to visit India (assuming you are not in India already).  But do you know how to say it in Hindi?  Today, let’s learn the phrase “I want to visit India.”  And we focus on the first Hindi consonant on the second line, and for those that already know your letters, take a look at the handwriting examples that are included.  We hear music from Susmita, and hear one of hear previous lessons.

Today’s music is from Susmita, she has published several lessons on the site (Susmita’s Lessons).   The song is in Bengali, so do not be surprised if you can not understand it.  Susmita give Hindi and Bengali lessons, and she gives music lessons as well.  You can find out more on her website: http://talkingbees.com/  (You can hear the complete uninterrupted song on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_9zQCwe9YOE)

In a previous learn Hindi daily show episode, I made a public request for people that play a musical instrument or sing to let us use their music as an intro and closing on the show.  I received two replies from two very talented people.  I plan to alternate between the two of them.  I believe that adding music to the show will make the show more interesting to listen to.  If you would be willing to have your music used in this way, please email me at nathan@ISpeakHindi.com.
