I can find many similarities between Hindi and our language, Japanese.
When I can find some similarities between the target language and our own mother tongue,Japanese, I am naturally very happy.
Thank you very much for your responses. Ms PriyaSinghJatti, I presume you are a Indian lady since you have the female Indian name from Sanscrit (प्रिय=beloved). Yes, we can find several similarities between our languages in terms of the sound system, word order and even words. Actually, Mr. or Ms abc.mar, as you have mentioned, सेवा (pronounced "sewa") in Hindi means 世話 (pronounced "sewa") in Japanese. Of course it can be a simple coincidence but Japanese Hindi learners I know here in Japan said unanimously that Hindi is much easier to learn than European languages such as English or French because we have a lot in common in them. Mr.or Ms ahau.3, and H.K.A2, thank you for your comment. I will tell you the details later. And would you tell me about your many experiences of your foregin language learning? Some advice?
We should hav a Duolingo course teaching Hindi to speakers of Japanese. People ought to be able to learn a language on Duo via their own mother tongue, even if their mother tongue isn't English. Learning via a language other than your own, sucks. Duo needs to aggressivly develop courses teaching languages other than English, to speakers of languages other than English.
Well I'm surprised to see many hindi words with a clear indoeuropean origin, it makes some words sound oddly familiar to an Italian speaker. By the way I agree with you, the sentence structure and the verbs all the postpositions they are very similar to japanese grammar.
