Uh-oh the Hindi words for "I" and "in" are pronounced so similarly that I cannot tell the difference when hearing them! is this unique to the Duo computer voice or is it like that in natural speech as well??


No they are pronounced differently in the sound clip, मैं uses the long E, where में uses the short E, think of the short version as being pronounced like the English word Say, but without the elongated Y sound afterword, just a short E. Then the longer version is pronounced more like the word Meh, just without the H sound on the end. And of course both add nasalization.


Thanks, that kind of helps. I'll keep listening to it til I get it right!

I'm confused with all these Indian vowels. According to Wiktionary, both मैं (/mɛ̃ː/) and में (/mẽː/) are pronounced with long vowels.

मैं : how the goat bleats. में : the way you say 'May'


There's no audio for the sentence. Only if you press the individual words there is some audio. Pls fix.


So this is a statement about a temporary state? Ie. "I am in America" vs. "I am American"? I am confused because the last sentence had similar structure and translated to "Peter is American".


I the same. I was writing the same. What hapning


में means in??? I have doubt on that.
