Hi Jessica,


Thanks for your question!


"aap kahaan Se hain" means "Where are you from" and "aap kahaan rahaTe hain" means "Where do you live".


I hope that helps, but if you still have any questions, just let us know.


All the best!

Hi Risari,


Thanks for your question!


"I" is always "main" and "in" is always "men".


We will get this corrected in the lesson as soon as possible.

In another lesson, we learned to say this as "aap kahan se hain." What is the difference?

Why is there 2 words for "I" [mai & main] and 2 words for "In" [men & mein].
