Welcome back! Can you tell me how will you ask "where is your house" in Hindi?

Hi Virginia,


The word for "house" is "ghar".


Your response can be "aapaka ghar kahaan hai?"


All the best!

As the word house or home has not come up yet, the best I can do for you is; Kahaan your house?

Nmaste!


Thank you for your answer. For more precision, I want to indicate that the parts that are very boring to hear over and over again are the introduction: "namaste, welcome to Hindi pod 101.......be sure to live us a comment" it's more that one minute, then there is the part before we have to guess the phrases : "ok, to close out this lesson............good luck, in Hindi" (very long too) and the final part (repeating again nearly the same as in the introduction!).

For people who have a subscription and who want to listen to a lot of lessons one after another, (while doing the washing up for example or doing other homework), it would be great to quit these parts, because the repetition is very wearying.

Thank your for your attention, and thank you for this website.

Hi Nathacandra,


Thank you for all the suggestions. I will forward these to content team. I am sure they will work on it to make your experience even better. :)

Regarding 'ghar', it is masculine in Hindi. So you can say: "आपका घर कहाँ हैं ?"

Also, कहाँ and किधर are basically synonymous and can be used in place of each other.


Let me know if you have other queries.


Cheers!

If "ghar" is masculine : आपका घर कहँ हैं ?

If "ghar" is feminine : आपकी घर किधर है ?

So "ghar" is feminine or masculine?

In each sentence we can use कहाँ or किधर

Hi! I've been learning in this website for a few months. There are a lot of good things that I very appreciate, and that are very helpful, thank you for all that!

And there are things you could improve (and it would be much more easy to learn with these changes).

Things you could improve :

- To write systematically ALL the vocabulary used in the lesson in DEVANAGARI, other wise we don't really know how to write it.

- Change the system of "romanization" (which is very approximate and not serious to learn a language) by the Devanagari transliteration system which is rigorous : when you see an Hindi or Sanskrit word written with transliteration, you are sure about how to write it in Devanagari.

- Stop saying in the audio files that something "literally means..." when very often it's the opposite : "Literal meaning" is when the translation is representing the exact words of the original text. And very often, when you say that, you are giving the way we would say it in English, but not not the literal meaning, and so we don't know the real translation of some words in the expression. Actually, it would be great to have each time, for each turn of phrase, the literal meaning, to know exactly what is the real meaning of each word, and then what it means, or the way we would said it in English. This would be a rigorous way to teach, and to learn...

- It would be great to talk more naturally in the audio files, because when you listen to them a lot, it becomes boring to hear always the same tone and expressions and ways to explain. I mean it would be more pleasant if less uniform, more in the tone of a conversation style. The girl has a pleasant, kind, and friendly voice, but you should have less robotic scripts. (Sometimes I stop studding because I can't stand these boring repetitions anymore).


Sorry if my English is not very good.


Hope these ideas will help!

Hi Chris and SC,


Chris - yes, we try to have new material in every lesson, but thank you for your feedback. We will take it into consideration.


SC - "kahaan" and "kiDHar" are synonyms, but yes "kiDHar" is more colloquial, and "kahaan" is far more common.

Thank you for your comments and questions!


Cheers,

Udita
