Lesson Transcript

A: Top 25 Hindi Questions You Need to Know - Lesson 24: Have you been to New Delhi? in Hindi (In each lesson of this 25 part series, you'll master a common question for Hindi learners, and then learn how to answer it like a native. You'll learn how these key phrases work by breaking them down into each component. Then through repetition and new vocabulary, you'll expand your understanding of the question, its answers, and any variations.)
In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question ""Have you been to New Delhi?"" In Hindi this is
B: क्या तुम नई दिल्ली गए हो?
The first word in the question is
B: क्या
A: ""meaning have"" in English.
B: (Slow, by syllable) क्या
A: Listen again and repeat.
B: क्या
{Pause}
A: This pattern of first introducing a word at natural speed, providing the translation, breaking it down, and then giving it again at natural speed will be repeated throughout the series. Try to speak aloud as often as possible. The next word in the question is
B: तुम
A: meaning you.
B: (Slow, by syllable) तुम
A: Now repeat.
B: तुम
{Pause}
Listen to the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
B: क्या तुम
{pause}
And next
B: नई दिल्ली
A: meaning New Delhi.
B: (Slow, by syllable) नई दिल्ली
A: Now repeat.
B: नई दिल्ली
{Pause}
Listen to the first 3 words of the question and repeat.
B: क्या तुम नई दिल्ली
{pause}
And next
B: गए
A: meaning been .
B: (Slow, by syllable) गए
A: Now repeat.
B: गए
{Pause}
Listen to the first 4 words of the question and repeat.
B: क्या तुम नई दिल्ली गए
{pause}
And after that
B: हो
A: meaning are .
B: (Slow, by syllable) हो
A: Now repeat.
B: हो
{Pause}
Listen to the entire question and repeat.
B: क्या तुम नई दिल्ली गए हो
{pause}
A: (You will hear this common question again and again throughout your studies.) Master the following pattern and responses to the question Have you been to New Delhi??
B: हाँ, मै दो बार गया हूँ
A: ""Yes, I've been twice.. Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
B: (Slow) हाँ, मै दो बार गया हूँ
{pause}
To say ""no"", in a simple way, just say:
B: नहीं, मै नहीं गया हूँ
A: Which is like saying No, I haven’t been in English. Let's hear it slowly.
B: (Slowly) नहीं, मै नहीं गया हूँ
A: And one more time at normal speed:
B: नहीं, मै नहीं गया हूँ
A: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:
B: हाँ
A: meaning yes.
B: (Slow, by syllable) हाँ
A: Now repeat
B: हाँ
{Pause}
A: And after that
B: मै
meaning I .
B: (Slow, by syllable) मै
A:Now repeat.
B: मै
{Pause}
A: And next

meaning two.

A:Now repeat.

{Pause}
A: And next
B: बार
meaning times.
B: (Slow, by syllable) बार
A:Now repeat.
B: बार
{Pause}
A: And next
B: गया
meaning been .
B: (Slow, by syllable) गया
A:Now repeat.
B: गया
{Pause}
A: And next
B: हूँ
meaning am.

A:Now repeat.
B: हूँ
{Pause}
A: Listen to the speaker say, Yes, I've been twice and then repeat.
B: हाँ, मै दो बार गया हूँ
{pause}
A: To expand on the pattern, replace twice with no .
B: नहीं
A: no
B: (slow) नहीं (regular) नहीं
A: Listen to the phrase again, this time with no
B: नहीं, मै नहीं गया हूँ
A: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace twice. Say No, I haven't been.
{pause}
B: नहीं, मै नहीं गया हूँ
A: To use a different phrase, replace no with once.
B: एक बार
A: once
B: (slow) एक बार (regular) एक बार
A: Listen to the phrase again, this time with once
B: हाँ, मै एक बार गया हूँ
A: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace no. Say Yes, I've been once.
{pause}
B: हाँ, मै एक बार गया हूँ
A: To use a different phrase, replace once with many times.

A: Listen to the phrase again, this time with many times
B: हाँ, मै कई बार गया हूँ
A: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace once. Say Yes, I've been many times.

Hi Jamie,


Thanks for posting!


To answer your question, You have correctly placed "nayi dilli men" But to make a better sentence try this: nayi dilli mein mere achchhe dost hain.


All the best!

- haan, mai kayii baar gaye hun. nayi dilli mein mere paas achchhe dost hain.


Should I put "nayi dilli mein" in the first half or the last part of the sentence?
