To build a full sentence out of hindi words is way beyond what I can at this stage. I am still struggling with the letters and i have not yet learned to build a word out of them. I have absolutley no clue on this sentence. It seems like there should be some more chapters focusing on letters, also focusing on learning them with and without the audio.
OR, if i could listen to these words one by one maybe it would be easier to build a sentence.
I'm finding it easier to try to think of this as learning like a child. They have no idea what they're looking at, they just keep trying until something sticks. I found the individual letters harder than whole words. I guess because coming from my alphabet the letters have no context - no reference point to "look like" anything I can recognize, but at least with whole words I can imagine a little more clearly. At least that's what works for me. I'm still struggling, though. Good luck!
I totally agree with you. I understand conversational hindi so its easier for me to undersyand the sentence structure, but i will i could play with spelling first before I build sentences
I wish there could be a begining lesson with just one word at a time. I am struggling to see which letters are included in each word. I wasn't even sure if the language is read left to right, and I had no idea what the word devangari meant. That said, I am eager to attempt the duolingo Hindi course. But from the comments here, it appears that first i have to go do some independant study.
What I did was read the tips and notes for the alphabet skills (notes are on desktop if not on mobile), then I made each skill gold. After that, I got to level two on this skill. Then, I took a break to practice other languages. I came back and relearned forgotten letters, and left again. Now I'm back, I relearned letters again, and this skill is easy to me now! Don't know how long ago you posted this since I'm on mobile, so I hope you've moved on to higher skills!
Yes there is no gender specific word . For every gender you can use यह वह
Flora, Indian people get confused when you use academic transcription. When you say vaha (वह, he/she), Indians read वहाँ (wahã/wahaan, there). Similarly, writing yaha (यह, this, he/she over here) would be interpreted as yahã/yahaan (यहाँ, here). The situation is so bad that nobody here understood your question. So, follow the casual transcription standards and drop the ending a when it's not an aa (ā/आ).
yes i started learning the devanagari scrip off of youtube. i Find it much easier to write the letters down one by one (vowels and consonants) and having someone eplain it to me along the way. One tip from me is to get notebooks and practice writing the letters down just like we all did in kindergarten with the english alphabet.
In Hindi language: Subject+ object + verb
And For' I' letter मै
मैंने मुजकों मुझसे मेरे मेरा/मेरी
