Hi Jamie,


Nicely paraphrased answer. You are doing very well!


Here is one minor correction. Since you are female, replace "gayaa" with "gayii". Like this,

main THak gayii huun kyonki aaj mere paaS bahuT kaam hai


Keep learning Hindi!


All the best!

Hi Rem,


That is very good attempt. I will just show you the correct sentence formation:


Nothing is wrong

कुछ गड़बड़ नहीं है (kuch gardbarḋ Nahiin hai)


Cheers!
