Professions Posted by Nitya on Jun 16, 2017 in Hindi Language
When you are in a new place, exchanging pleasantries and sharing a few things about yourself always serve as great ice-breakers. For example, when I was traveling in a colectivo in Mexico one summer, an elderly gentleman struck up a conversation with me. When he found out that I am a teacher, the conversation took a different dimension. For 40 mins until my stop arrived, he lamented about the state of education in his town, lack of good teachers, and encouraged me to consider migrating to Mexico. He assured me, in parting, that I would find plenty of opportunities for employment as a teacher.
I thought it would be great to discuss Hindi vocabulary for professions/jobs. Here are some common professions.
मैं वकील हूँ। मैं न्यायालय में काम करता हूँ।Main vakeel hoon.
Main nyayalay mein kaam karta hoon.
I am a lawyer. I work in the courts.
What do you do?आप क्या करते हैं? (Aap kya karte hain? )
Main ________________ (your profession) hoon.
Main ________________ mein (your workplace) kaam karta hoon.
