Many of you have an aspiration to learn Hindi. Let me show you the top 5 ways to lean Hindi language.
1. Watch Hindi Media
Watching Hindi movies, soaps and music are some of the great way to learn a lot of common vocabulary in an entertaining way. Nowadays, Hindi movies are released in many countries. If you have no Hindi movies screening in your city, you can still watch many movies on Internet sources such as YouTube.com etc. And, who don’t want to listen to lovely Hindi songs?
2. Make Hindi Tandem Partners
Making some Hindi tandem partners (language exchange partners) not only will improve your Hindi language skills by providing you an one-to-one learning interaction but also introduce you to a Indian friend who will introduce you to Hindi society, cultural, customs, cuisine and other finer intricacies through regular exchange.
3. Visit Indian/Asian Supermarket
If you have a local Indian/Asian shop or supermarket where you can find Indian stuff, I advise you to go and visit them. This will provide you an opportunity to learn vocabulary regarding edible and other stuffs like अचार (Aachar – Pickle) or नमकीन (Namkeen – Snacks). Beside, you can get some traditional stuff which you can try to have a perfect Indian dinner or lunch for you or/and your family.
4. Read Hindi Newspaper and Magazine
This is an old age method to learn vocabulary, grammatical usage and keeping you updated about the current affairs. The newspapers (समाचार पत्र – Samaachar Patr) and magazine (पत्रिका – Patrika) are now easily available at Indian or Asian shops or supermarket. Moreover, all Hindi newspapers are now available in the Internet format. Some of the famous newspapers which you can read online are BBC Hindi, Bhaskar, Nav Bharat etc.

Enrolling to a Hindi course also compel you to assign a proper time to your language learning.
