It probably would not be an exaggeration to say that your language learning process would be incomplete without learning the numbers in the target language. You may easily get along with the English numbers in urban areas but in rural areas where most people do not speak English or are uncomfortable with the language, learning numbers would be your forte to better communication and even better bargaining.
How to learn numbers in Hindi? It is easier to learn numbers if you incorporate them in your language learning process. Start practicing the numbers individually and then use them in your sentences. Every time when you have to use a number ensure you use a Hindi number. We at Multibhashi make learning numbers a part of your Hindi language learning and help you use them in your day-to-day situations.
Learn Numbers in Hindi at Multibhashi:
Multibhashi is an EdTech online language learning platform where you get an opportunity to learn from the best teachers. Their language learning exercises are designed to suit individual learning abilities. Numbers are taught as a part of the curriculum where you start with 0 to 10 and further move to 100 and multiples of 100. In Hindi every number is spelled and pronounced in a unique way. However, by observing the pattern that numbers follow, you will be able to learn and use them efficiently.
Unlike English where numbers follow a standard pattern starting from twenty-one, Hindi has a different set of numbers where you might have to put in some effort in learning numbers individually because they keep changing in a very subtle manner. Once you understand this difference you will be able to use them comfortably.
At Multibhashi, we ensure that the conversation practice that you are taken through includes numbers as well. For example, we tell you how to say I have four rooms in my house, or I want to buy two kgs of flour in Hindi. This allows you to practice the numbers in context and help in better memorization. Apart from conversational practice, the teacher also poses different questions based on numbers which makes you think about them.
You can also use the Multibhashi language learning app that allows you to practice your numbers through different exercises which are simple yet very effective, fun and engaging.
Numbers are needed everywhere. It could be talking about your birthday, giving your address or phone number, measuring quantities, buying essentials like groceries, fruits and vegetables etc. Also, if you understand the numbers in the local language, buying from the street vendors or local market becomes comparatively easy.
You become fluent in a language when you no longer struggle with the words that are to be used in a sentence. To attain the fluency of a native speaker or a bilingual focussing on numbers is very important because this gives a flow to your language. Using English numbers in a Hindi sentence may help you with the purpose but you may miss the continuity.
Start from one to ten, practice further and use numbers in every possible situation to become comfortable with them.
