Hi Catherine,


Thanks for your question.


SakaTii is used when you are referring to a female. Your sample sentence uses "Sakatii". This means you are addressing a female.


To answer your second question, here "ke aage se" means "from the front of". "Se" means "from".



All the best!

In this example can you explain the form of se.

For this example, why is Sakti used in feminine?

Yes, I agree with Wei Wei. Can these past forms be explained in this context or is it a mistake? Note, there is a mistake in the audio. The cue is for 'song' and the answer given is the word for nap!!!!


I also wonder about some of the vocabulary and expressions - things like 'walk' the dog and get out of 'bed'.


Otherwise, to answer your question: I like this series of lessons - some de-contextualised functional sentences that help to extend one's ability to express simple activities, which are at the appropriate level under the label, beginners. Given relatively limited access to the language, these are a 'soft' way in (rather than the previous complex text/dialogue approach that is in many cases very difficult for a genuine beginner - The 'sink or swim' approach must have drowned many would-be learners, being literally over their heads.) Hence, these sentences are a relaxing breather and good consolidation of action verbs.

It seems that in English, everything is in present tense, but the Hindi sentences are actually a mix of present and past tense? This is very confusing.
