Hi Abdulrahman,


Thanks for your question.


You can say,


"क्या आप भारतीय खाना खाना चाहते हैं?" or kyaa aap bhaarTiiy khaaNaa khaaNaa caahaTe hain? (Note that for both "eat" and for "food" the same word are used. So, you repeat it twice).


Since it can be confusing to use "KhaNaa" twice, you can replace it with "bhojaN" or "meals".


All the best!

So if I want to say " Do you want to eat Indian food? " I say " क्या आप भारतीय खाना खा चाहते हैं? "

Thank you

Hi Rem,


Great effort! Your sentences are almost perfect. Just the formation is a bit messy. In Hindi, the term 'is' always translates to "है" and it always comes at the end of the sentence. So your sentences become:


भारतीय खाना स्वादिष्ट है. अमेरिकन खाना घृणा-युक्त है (मैक्सिकन शामिल नहीं)

Translit - Bhaaratiya khaanaa svaadisht hé. Amérikan khaanaa ghrna-yükt hé(méksikan shaamil Nahiin)


Hope this helps!


Cheers!

Translat - Indian food is delicious. American food is disgusting (Not including Mexican)

Hello Krystyna,


Your Hindi learning is going great it seems! Most of it seems correct. Just a small correction:

मुझे तीखा खाना बहुत पसंद है, तो मुझे खासतौर पर तीखा चिकन करी पसंद है। मुझे मुर्ग मखनी भी बहुत पसंद है।


Hope you got it!


Cheers,

I really like spicy food, so I especially like spicy chicken curry. I also like butter chicken.
