Newbie Lessons

This is the section for Newbies.  This is for people with no previous experience with Hindi.  These lessons focus on memorization of phrases.  The Hindi words are often transliterated in the English script to make it easier to remember and practice.  The goal is to learn a few phrases to achieve specific goals, with no intention of understand the grammar and mechanics of the phrase.

If you find these lessons too simple, then try the Beginner level lessons. These are for people with little or no experience with Hindi.  Learn the symbols and sounds of Hindi, basic grammar, common words, and practice them in several different contexts.
