Hindi is the third most spoken language in the world (after English and Chinese), with over 615 million speakers. To put it in context, that’s close to 10% of the global population, and around 44% of the Indian population, making it India’s most popular language.
Hindi is an Indo-Aryan language spoken in India. Hindi has been described as a standardized and Sanskritised register of the Hindustani language, which itself is based primarily on the Khariboli dialect of Delhi and neighboring areas of Northern India. Hindi, written in the Devanagari script, is one of the two official languages of the Government of India, along with the English language. It is an official language in 9 States and 3 Union Territories and an additional official language in 3 other States. Hindi is also one of the 22 scheduled languages of the Republic of India.
The best way to learn Hindi is of course by taking a learning course. However, I have met many people who learned through their North Indian colleagues and friends. People from South came with zero understanding of Hindi and learned it with time and patience. Most of the time they are accompanied by their friends who help them through day-to-day situations. If you’re in a hurry, taking a course will be best for you. Google is your friend too.
1.Start from the basics.
In Andhra we have Hindi as the third language up to tenth class, it became really easy for me to form basic sentences in Hindi . Learn basic sentences and words that you think are necessary while you are on the job, like eat,look, come,go, stay etc
2.Watch Bollywood movies-
I think this is the funniest way of learning Hindi. You can learn the formal accent of the language and the TUNE of Hindi. Speaking a new language is no less than an art.
This is very important. Here ending depends on gender, yes seriously, it feels awkward if you get it wrong.once I said “madam aa rha h” and my friend said “what???!!!!” and corrected me saying “aa rhi h”
There is nothing more you can do than start talking in Hindi with your friends. they will really appreciate you and you can mingle better talking in Hindi. At first, it might feel awkward but later you can pick up. You will learn most of the words in the process. Just speak speak speak until you get it just right. There is a difference between the way north Indians and south Indians say the letter “L”.The way north Indians pronounce letters is quite different from us. The Hindi spoken in Bihar is a little different than the Hindi in Delhi.It took me a while to get used to all those accents.
My mother tongue Telugu just flows like a stream of a river without a pause/stressing on a syllable. Even if there is a stress,I just ignore it. But in Hindi the stressed syllable is very important otherwise the natives won’t get it. like in DHEKA,KHANA,KHATAM.
6.Take an online class or course
You can take online classes or courses because the most attractive feature of online courses is that they can be done from anywhere, at any time. You could sit at your home, office or at the park also. you can designate any hour and duration as per your convenience for your studies. Online courses improve self discipline at the same time if you are a self-motivated person, online courses can help you in achieving better results than traditional learning.
7.Youtube is also the best way
Study the language actively by using online courses and videos on YouTube and various informative blogs. How interested and involved you determine how quickly you can learn a language.
No doubt youtube is the best option for learning but here you won’t be able to directly interact with any trainer.
8.Get a book of this particular language
Books help you to solve extra problems and concepts. Books also help you to reinforce your vocabulary. That is why reading books is such a good way to learn the language. Books in the language and Wikipedia will also help a lot as these have different ways of forming sentences.
9.Find a conversation partner
Speak with native speakers or experts of the language. Experience is the greatest teacher and these people will often have more knowledge due to regular use of the language.
