Learning a New Language Posted by on Mar 22, 2017 in Hindi Language

When I learn a new language, I am great at mastering grammar. Written and reading proficiency in a language comes easily to me. However I get tongue-tied and start scrambling for vocabulary when it’s time to speak. There is plenty of research out there that will point you to various approaches to learning a new language and almost all agree that opportunities for conversation are the best means of acquiring a new language or building on it.

A blog is a written medium, and as such untenable to spoken conversation. However, from time to time I will dig back into past blogs and toss together exercises and activities that will prompt you to jog your memory of past lessons.

Take a shot at the following exercises and post your responses in the comments section. Was it challenging? Too easy? Want more? It’s always great to hear feedback.

TASK 1 : Translate the following paragraph into Hindi. All words have been addressed in previous posts.

My grandmother is very sweet. She is clever and short-tempered/angry, too! She is not very fair or tall. She drinks a lot of hot tea. She loves to go to the market and buy expensive mangoes. She is 90 years old.

TASK 2 : In the following list, match Column A with Column B.

Match columns A and B

About the Author: Nitya

Namaste, friends. My name is Nitya. I was born and raised in Mumbai (formerly Bombay). I'm a native Hindi speaker. However, as life took me through school, college, work, and waves of friends from different parts of India, my repertoire of Hindi flavors and dialects grew and added dimension to my native fluency. Casual, formal, colloquial, and regional ... Hindi is a language with incredible variety and localization. Through this blog, I will help you learn Hindi through conversations, vocabulary, colloquialisms, and glimpses of Indian culture. आओ, मिलकर हिंदी सीखते हैं। (Aao, milkar Hindi seekhte hain!) Come, let's learn Hindi together.
