Because I have been trying to learn Hindi on&off for so long I noticed that “Master 4 words” has been easy for me so far, because I already knew at least one of every four words I tried. great isn’t it? On the other hand, I got lot of words that I thought I knew corrected either by pronunciation or exact meaning, and in general, “Master 4 words” has been great daily experience for me, and maybe you have already noticed that I love it.

No one has posted an answer to the challenge from the last show: 

[20111003] Learn Hindi Daily Show – How is your health?

The challenge is to go to {Suresh190} Names of relatives choose a relationship type.  For example: भतीजा means “brother’s son”.  In English we would call this “nephew”.  And then create a sentence like:

भतीजा भाई का बेटा है। “bhateeja is brother’s son.”  Suresh has actually listed both of these parts.  So it is really a matter of taking the parts, putting them in the correct order, and adding है on the end.

Then the challenge was to create a sentence telling this person’s name.  Then create the sentence like this:

भतीजे का नाम नकुल है।  “bhateeja’s name is nakul”.

Give it a try by following these steps:
