Why I Can’t Learn Hindi
Ok so basically I can only speak English fluently, I learn French in high school and I try to speak Gujarati at home but I fail pretty badly. Now I’ve been trying at Hindi because when we go to India I want to be able to speak to locals. But it is proving very difficult because I have so many languages confuffled in my brain that I end up mixing them all up. I envy all you that can speak like 4 different languages because I can speak one solitary language and that’s it. ~Maahi Patel~
If you understand gujarati, look at the commonalities between hindi and gujarati grammar. The sentence structure is almost identical (at least formally) for a lot of things. If you speak Surti gujarati, though (guessing by your last name), that is a different story :).
Here is an example:
I like this game Mane a ramat game chhe (gujarati) Mujhe yeh khel pasand hai (hindi)
Mane = mujhe (to me) a = yeh (this) ramat = khel (game) game = pasand (enjoy) hai = chhe (is)
It's not always this matched up, but once you make connections, both languages will be bahut aasan (very easy) to find comparisons with and summarily learn.
