What is the most difficult number to pronounce?

Hi Nivani,


You are correct. There is a nasalized sound right in the middle of the number "paanc". The "n" indicates that nasalization. Just keep practicing and it will get easier.


All the best!

Hi Don,


To answer you romanization query. I would like to tell you that it is not fully consistent. Different portals and websites might adapt a slightly different technique. Also you don't need to learn the alphabets completely. But getting a slight idea about how each of them is pronounced would help you a lot and will the learning easier for you.


To answer the second question, CHaahTaa hoon as in 'main jeeNaa CHaahTaa hoon' translates to 'I want to live' so 'CHaahTaa hoon' translates to 'want to'.

'CHaahoongaa' as in 'main jaaNaa CHaahoongaa' translates to 'I would like to leave' so 'CHahoongaa' roughly translates to 'would like to'.

'Chaaongaa', I feel is wrongly spelt as the base word for all these words is 'CHaah'.


Let me know if you have any further queries. :)


Cheers!

Am I going to be able to learn conversational Hindi without learning the Hindi alphabet? Is the Romanization spelling consistent?

Well, what does CHaahTaa hoon mean? looks similar to CHaahoongaa and that looks similar to CHaaoongaa. ? dp

Hi Sabina,


Thank you for pointing out the missing part - we will take a look at it right away.


Regarding the 2 words:

हूँ - is like 'am' which denotes first person voice

चाहता - 'want' is the singular masculine present tense conjugation of the verb "चाहना" (to want)

"चाहता हूँ" together means 'I want' but 'I' is not stated.


Hope that helps!


Cheers,

And the English translation of "haar" (necklace) is missing in the review audio track.

Hello Leslie,


Since the numbers are explained a bit in the grammar section, so they are listed out there. Vocabulary contains other new words which you might not be familiar with.

Why don't you list the numbers under vocabulary? Those are the things I want to add to my flashcards and see written out.
