We are back in town, and our daily program will be coming out daily again.  I hope you didn’t mind the few filler episodes that we published in the past week.   I’m referring to the episodes called 10 Hightest Rated Lessons, 10 Highest Scoring Lessons, etc.

Today let us continue with our Hindi studies.  Let’s learn the phrase “Can you repeat it?”.  This can be useful when hearing a phrase for the first time.  Or perhaps you are talking to somebody, and you didn’t quite understand the last thing they said.

Do you know all your Hindi letters?  Let’s look at the letter ज today.  If you already know the letters, then take a look at the handwritten examples that we included.
