Beginner Lessons

This section is for beginners.  These are people with little or no experience with Hindi.  People who are interested in learning the symbols and sounds of Hindi, basic grammar, common words, and practice them in several different contexts.

If you are looking for something that is more basic, then try out the Newbie lessons which focus on speaking and understanding very basic words and phrases.  On the other hand, if you are looking for something more challenging, then try out the Intermediate Level Lessons which are for people that know the Hindi script and are looking to develop fluency and fluidity.
