Lesson Transcript

namasTe. meraa naam Preranaa hai. Hi everybody! I’m Prerana.
Welcome to HindiPod101.com’s “Tiin minat mein hinDi siikhiye.” The fastest, easiest, and most fun way to learn Hindi.
In the last lesson, we learned some words used when apologizing in Hindi, including maaf kiijiye and kshamaa kiijiye. In this lesson we are going to learn numbers in Hindi.
Yes, numbers! sankhyaaen ! From one to ten. And you are going to learn them in only three minutes, Tiin minat!
Are you ready? Let’s start!
ek
[slowly] ek
Do
[slowly] Do
teen
[slowly] Tii-in
caar
[slowly] cha-ar
paanc
[slowly] pa-anch
chah
[slowly] che-
saat
[slowly] sa-aT
aath
[slowly] aa-th
nau
[slowly] na-u
das
[slowly] Das
Okay, now repeat after me. I'll say the numbers and give you time to repeat each one.
1. ek
2. Do
3. Tiin
4. chaar
5. paanch
6. che
7. saaT
8. aath
9. nau
10. Das
Great job!
What is before ek? Do you know? It’s of course, zero which in Hindi is
shunya
[slowly] shun-ya
You don’t have any more excuses! You can give your friends your cell phone number in Hindi!
Let’s try together.
We’ll use the phrase meraa fon nambar ...hai, which means “my number is:”
[slowly] me-raa fon nam-bar ...hai
meraa fon nambar
nau, shunya, Do, paanch, paanch, saaT, Do, Do chaar, aath
hai.

Can you read it by yourself?
202-557-2248
Perfect!
Now it’s time for Prerana’s Insights.
Did you know that in Hindi, numbers have their own Devanagari script? Yes, that’s right, they don’t look like the numbers we’re used to seeing in the western world. But actually, they are quite similar because the western numeral system is the modified version of the Hindu numeral system. So with just a little more effort, you can not only say the numbers in Hindi, you’ll be able to read them as well!
Do you know the Hindi word for a hundred? In the next lesson we are going to learn the numbers from ten to one hundred in Hindi. Your task now is to practice the numbers we studied in this lesson, from ek to Das!!
Shukriyaa aur fir milenge.

Namaste,


First of all congratulations, Hindi is a really beautiful language.

I'm Portuguese and for me Hindi is a bit difficult but it sound so so good.

I just wanted to let you know that in the lesson notes some numbers are written different from the video, that way I don't know what is the correct way to write them.

Can you please tell me how to write 4, 5, and 6?
